Beef Awards

Since its conception, the Royal Queensland Branded Beef Awards presented by Rabobank has unearthed the nation’s finest beef in the retail market. For a country that adores its red meat and produces some of the finest beef in the world, this competition is a true showcase of the best of the best.

The Branded Beef Awards is one of Australia’s most comprehensive beef competitions of its kind, with producers competing in five classes: Grain fed, Grass fed, two Wagyu classes and an Open class.

Chief Judge Elaine Millar will once again lead a team of expert judges, including top chefs from award-winning restaurants, butchers, food consultants and food journalists. All products entered in the competition must be 100% beef and commercially available in the Australian domestic market at the time of judging. Multiple entries per class are permitted, however, the exhibitor must clearly identify a difference between each entry during the entry process.

Don’t miss this outstanding opportunity to have your products judged at the highest level by some of the nation’s top beef judges in these prestigious beef awards. Cooked and prepared by food scientists, with precise cooking requirements, the meat is presented to judges in its perfect state. It is then judged based on its appearance (raw), tenderness, flavour, juiciness and overall liking for a total of 100 points.

Join us in celebrating Australia’s finest beef produce and benefit from this unique branding opportunity.
