Enter the World Steak Challenge

Benchmark quality, breed credentials and processing standards on an international stage

Is your Steak a cut above the rest?

Launched in 2015 to deliver a recognised stamp of quality to support world-class steak production on a global platform, World Steak Challenge gives steak producers from across the world a unique opportunity to benchmark product quality, breed credentials and processing standards on the international stage. With four categories open for entries we are on the hunt for the best Fillet, Ribeye, Sirloin and Wagyu’s from across the globe. Whether your steaks are grass or grain-fed, we want to hear from beef producers, cattle farmers and ranchers, beef processors, steak brands and beef wholesalers.

After nine successful years and with 25 steak-producing countries having participated, we're continuing on our mission to hunt down the best beef steak producers and reward the world’s best steaks. This year we have introduced grass and grain-fed winners for the Fillet, Sirloin and Ribeye categories plus four brand new company awards. Entries for this year's competition will close on Monday 8 July, so get started on your entry today.

Securing a medal in the prestigious World Steak Challenge is a great opportunity to raise the profile of your business and open the door to new customers and opportunities. The World Steak Challenge generated over 1.2 billion opportunities to see via print & online press coverage in 2023!
