Why Heck?

Being family run, means we can do things differently and our way. We make our gluten-free sausages & burgers in small batches in our factory in Yorkshire. Although we’re still a small business, we’re big on quality & flavour. Our family and friends work with us too. Together, with our uncompromising attitude & passionate team, we produce the tastiest and healthiest food for all the family. As well as our meaty 97% pork & yummy chicken products, we now make meat-free, plant-based ranges, which have been approved by both the Vegan & Vegetarian Society. We started Heck! around our kitchen table to bring delicious sausages and burgers to the nation.
