Steak suppliers and producers have been urged to enter this year’s World Steak Challenge (WSC).

Now in its ninth year, WSC shines a spotlight on the best steaks, suppliers and producers across the globe, judged by a tasting panel of experts from across the planet.

Beef and steak producers, wholesalers and retailers have until Monday 10 July to enter this year’s competition before it is judged in September at Vless & Co Steak Restaurant in Amsterdam.

Entries will be assessed by a panel of more than 50 independent judges with the best performing entries awarded gold, silver or bronze medals.

Ultimate competition

The winners will then be revealed at a special awards dinner at Smith and Wollensky in central London on 13 November,

The Morning Advertiser​’s sister title Restaurant ​editor Stefan Chomka said: “The WSC is the ultimate competition for steak producers and suppliers to showcase their product quality and breed credentials on an international stage.

“The importance of taste, provenance and sustainability in meat has never been greater and this competition highlights the best producers in the business and gives them a platform to tell the world about the quality of the steaks.”

Last year’s competition was held in Dublin​ where more than 200 medals were awarded. The 2023 winner was Japan-based Starzen Co, which also took the title of the World’s Best Sirloin and World’s Best Grain-Fed.

Former winners

Other awards were presented to Poland’s MFC Cami, which was awarded World’s Best Fillet while Linden Foods and Marks & Spencer in Northern Ireland were also winners alongside Albers GmbH and Jack’s Creek.

For this year, the categories open for entry are Fillet, Sirloin and Ribeye along with a new category Wagyu.

Furthermore, new for 2023, all gold medal winning steaks automatically qualify for the international categories where the best steaks from Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania and South America will be announced before one producer will claim the coveted title of The World’s Best Steak.
