About this project

What is The Dausage?

The Dausage is a cross between a sausage and a doughnut. It is a succulent meat sausage, filled with different varieties of jam (or if you are from the US, jelly!).

But why?

After seeing the successes of the Cronut (a cross between a croissant and a doughnut) and the Duffin (a cross between a muffin and a doughnut) we started speculating about what else would be great if you mixed it with a doughnut, and we quickly settled upon the sausage.

So have you actually tried this?

Yes, and some. We have done small batches of Dausages and done some public tastings, and everyone who has tried it has loved it.

These people all loved The Dausage.

So what do you need the money for?

Ah, the big question. All our efforts so far have been hand-crafted small batches. We are now moving towards larger-scale production. With the money we raise from this, we are planning to adapt a sausage making machine to inject the jelly/jam during the sausage formation. Once we achieve this, we will be able to make larger batches and actually start approaching stores with a product to sell.

So you will be spending it all on manufacture?

Yes absolutely. We have recipes, branding and packaging done, as seen below, and we plan to move into manufacture very quickly now. Once we have the manufacturing in place, we will then be able to begin approaching supply chains and supermarkets with the product.

Press

We have been featured in both national and local press, here are some of the articles:

BuzzFeed - Mashable - ITV - Mirror - Independent - Metro - Wales Online - Carmarthen Journal - Bustle - Daily Edge

We hope you can see the potential of this and are as excited about it as we are. We look forward to serving you the amazing Dausage for years to come, and hope you will come with us on this journey.

Risks and challenges

The main risk to The Dausage is that we will be beaten to the market by a rival trying to copy the product. In order to mitigate this, it is our intention to move quickly to create a jam injecting sausage maker and to get a patent on the technology involved.

In terms of the recipe, we are happy we have a quality product using high-quality ingredients, but we will need to get a supply chain in place once we move into manufacture, and that is another small risk. However, where we are located in South Wales, we are surrounded by farmland and sourcing meat supplies should be an easy task.
