Kärkkäri sausages turn 60 years

Kotivara invented the Kärkkäri sausage in 1956 when the sausage stalls in Oulu wanted to serve delicious and low-fat sausages that were easy to fry. The sausages were first called Erikoisaamiainen (Special breakfast) but were soon re-named Kärkkäri.
Today, Kärkkäri sausages are commonly available in grocery stores, sausage stalls and restaurants in the Oulu region.
