The World Steak Challenge prides itself on offering an independent, robust and fair judging process from start to finish. Integrity is at the heart of everything we do. Every steak is judged on its own merits against the internationally agreed judging criteria.
Stage One – Technical judging
All steaks are scored blindly on raw and cooked criteria by our expert panel of judges.

All scores are totalled and the winners are verified by our judging panel.
The judging is independent and monitored at every stage. Every steak is judged on its own merits against the internationally agreed judging criteria.
All steaks have the chance to win a gold, silver or bronze medal. The top-scoring steak will receive the coveted award of The World's Best Steak.
“The World Steak Challenge is the only event of it’s kind in the world. We import products that – from a quality and value point of view – are very far off the standard. We are delighted to finally have with the WSC a neutral platform of comparison that makes it possible to see where our quality is positioned on a global scale”.
“The World Steak Challenge is a wonderful and exciting way to test your beef quality. Gold & silver awards have been a great achievement for NOVILLO REAL beef from Uruguay and is a crown on the long-time performance of our beef in international foodservice and retail markets”
“Really enjoyed the experience and meeting people who are as passionate as we are about steaks from the grass pastures to the plate”
“The recognition and award we received in this competition is a major opportunity for our country, putting Romania on the map of quality producers and internationally promoting the Angus brand from Transylvania – meat produced in Europe for Europe. This success is indeed extremely valuable for us as a producer as well as for our country and the domestic production of a top product. “
"In such a short time it has turned out to be the biggest and most recognised contest worldwide in terms of finding the best beef in the world”
"WSC is a magnificent event celebrating beef from all over the world, and is a brilliant opportunity for farms, countries and producers to showcase their products - and be proud of their quality and what they do”
