World Steak Challenge Awards Raise the Steaks at Gaudio
The World Steak Challenge has returned and, with it, some well-done awards from Gaudio.
The challenge is ‘designed to benchmark the quality of beef production against other international competitors and establish a quality mark that everyone can trust’. The trophy is more than just a winners’ keepsake, it’s a display of excellence, and a measure of achievement in the industry.

Held over several weeks, the judging process examines each steak under internationally agreed criteria for both raw and cooked steaks. From aroma to consistency of the fat trim, the winning steaks are undoubtedly the best of the best.
Judges include Catherine Butler, who’s family butcher has been in operation since 1878, and Alan Franck, who returns to the judging panel for his fourth year.
