  • World Butchers Challenge 2021
    All day
    09-08-21-15-08-21

    We’re extremely proud to announce that the 2021 World Butchers’ Challenge will be held in Sacramento, California, USA.

    One of the things we’re most proud of here at the World Butchers’ Challenge, is the support network that this competition has fostered. Much more than just an event, it’s about learning, sharing and believing in a greater good for the industry.

    About us

    The concept of the World Butchers’ Challenge is to develop an environment where butchers strive to exceed current industry practice in the areas of general workmanship, meat cutting, displaying and the creative usage of beef, lamb, pork and chicken product. Through this competition, a global community has been cemented with life-long friendships formed, business opportunities unlocked and the overall trade benefiting from an injection of creativity and innovation.

    World Butchers’ Challenge

    The competition itself is conducted over a three hour and fifteen minute period with competing teams given a side of beef, a side of pork,  a whole lamb and five chickens which they must then transform into a themed display of value-added products.  Teams are allowed to provide their own seasonings, spices, marinades and garnish to finish products that are designed to inspire and push the boundaries, yet which are also cookable and would sell in a retail setting. Independent judges score each team based on technique & skill, workmanship, product innovation, overall finish and presentation.
