Royal Queensland
Lamb Awards

The Royal Queensland Branded Lamb Awards presented by Rabobank discovers the nation’s finest lamb in the retail market. For a country that adores its red meat and produces some of the finest lamb in the world, this competition is a true showcase of the best of the best.

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% lamb 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 opportunity to have your products judged at the highest level, by some of the nation’s top judges in the 2024 Royal Queensland Lamb 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.
