What is it with Finns, grilled sausages and summer? Every Friday night you’ll find hordes of people queuing up at the grilli for a taster. You’ll find sausages at hockey matches, being sizzled at the summer cottage, feasted on at picnics and parties. Amazingly, every Finnish banger is based upon the very first commercial sausage, HK Sininen, launched in 1963. Despite this, Suomi sausages are still a much-loved part of Finnish culture.
