Entries for World Steak Challenge 2022 Now Open

The prestigious World Steak Challenge is back face to face, and in Dublin for 2022.

The World Steak Challenge is the world’s first event to give steak producers and suppliers a much-needed platform to showcase their product quality, breed credentials and processing standards on an international stage.

With a focus on endorsing steak as a positive sustainable lifestyle choice. The World Steak Challenge provides an opportunity for entrants to engage with consumers by promoting the benefits of eating steak as part of a healthy balanced diet.

Beef and steak producers, wholesalers and retailers will have until Monday 18 July to enter the 2022 event, which is sponsored by the official host partner, Bord Bia and working with judging host, FIRE Steakhouse.

Categories include World’s Best Sirloin, World’s Best Rib-Eye, World’s Best Fillet, Best Grain-fed and Best Grass-fed, alongside the overall World’s Best Steak title. All entries are assessed by a panel of over 50 independent judges and the best performing are awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals.

“We’re thrilled to back in Dublin this year’s World Steak Challenge and are looking forward to welcoming even more entries from all over the world,” Lorraine Hendle, MD of the retail, manufacturing & hospitality portfolio at William Reed Business Media, also the company behind the International Wine Challenge and World’s 50 Best.

“The WSC is the ultimate competition for steak producers and suppliers to showcase their product quality and breed credentials on an international stage, while also testing themselves against competitors from around the world. “Winning the challenge not only independently proves the quality of a product but helps steak producers promote and publicise the credentials of their brand, while also testing their products against an international field.”

Now in its eighth year, the World Steak Challenge continues to grow in popularity and has become the benchmark for tasting steaks around the world. The 2021 event was held as a virtual announcement after the judging in November. Yet, still awarded over 250 medals to 25 different countries.

In 2021 JN Meat International won the overall World Steak Challenge title for the third year in a row, for a grass-fed Ayrshire sirloin that was produced in Finland and finished with chocolate. Judging for this year's event will take place at FIRE Steakhouse in Dublin on Tuesday 27 September with competition winners announced on the following evening.
