Hopeful beef and steak producers, wholesalers and retailers have until Monday 18 July to enter this year’s event, sponsored by host partner Bord Bia and working with judging host Fire Steakhouse.
Categories at this year’s event include World’s Best Sirloin, World’s Best Rib-Eye, World’s Best Fillet, Best Grain-fed and Best Grass-fed, alongside the overall World’s Best Steak title.
William Reed managing director for retail, manufacturing and hospitality Lorraine Hendel said: “We’re thrilled to be back in Dublin for this year’s World Steak Challenge and are looking forward to welcoming even more entries from all over the world.
“The WSC is the ultimate competition for steak producers and suppliers to showcase their product quality and breed credentials on an international stage, while also testing themselves against competitors from around the world.
“Winning the challenge not only independently proves the quality of a product but helps steak producers promote and publicise the credentials of their brand, while also testing their products against an international field.”
Now in its eighth year, the World Steak Challenge has become the benchmark for tasting steaks around the world.
Last year saw JN Meat International win the overall World Steak Challenge title for the third year in a row, for a grass-fed Ayrshire sirloin that was produced in Finland and finished with chocolate.
Judging for this year’s event will take place at FIRE Steakhouse in Dublin on Tuesday 27 September with competition winners announced on the following evening.
