Deadline fast approaching for the World Steak Challenge

There is less than one week left for producers to enter the World Steak Challenge. 

The competition is open to beef producers, cattle farmers, beef processors, steak brands and beef wholesalers with the aim of finding the World’s Best Steak Producer.

The deadline for entries is this Friday 14 August, so if you haven’t entered already, do it now!

All steaks entered will be judged against an internationally agreed set of criteria and will undergo a two-stage judging process: raw and cooked.

Entrants will need to submit two uncut loins (sirloin/striploin) per individual steak entered from the same animals. These will need to be delivered to an agreed location in the UK no earlier than 5 October and no later than 12 October.

The loins will then be cut on-site by our butcher into individual evenly sized steaks of 20mm thickness.

The competition will enable producers to benchmark themselves against international competitors and to use the publicity and recognition to promote their products both domestically and on the world stage.

In addition to winning the top accolade, Gold and Silver standards will be awarded following the first round of technical judging, with a second round of judging taking place to decide the World’s Best Steak Producer 2015.

The winner will be announced at a special event at The Lookout in Hyde Park, London, on 15 October.
