On Friday, September 23, Teys Australia announced that their Teys Premium Black Angus Grainfed beef from their Naracoorte Plant, supplied by Princess Royal Station Feedlot at Burra, was awarded a Silver Medal at The World Steak Challenge 2016.
The World Steak Challenge has been running for just two years and the competition sees steak producers from across the world go head to head to determine who has the best steak of all.
Producers, breeds and countries are judged against one another by a panel of ‘world class judges’ as well as ‘consumer judges’ through a two-stage judging process.
An overall winner was announced as well as category winners.
The competition distinguishes Gold, Silver and Bronze standard steak production globally, and only one is crowned the ‘World’s Best Steak Producer’.
Teys were one of 83 entrants from 17 different countries with breed, feed regime and age taken into consideration.
Teys Australia Pty Ltd was announced as a Silver medallist with their Black Angus Grain Fed 24-month Beef, supplied by Princess Royal Station.
The overall winner of the competition for the second year running was Jack’s Creek, entered by Albers GMBH, with their Grain Fed Wagyu F2+ 75 per cent, aged for 30 months.
In a press release this week, Princess Royal said it was extremely proud of this latest achievement on the world stage.
“We would like to publically congratulate Teys and thank them for announcing that it was the beef supplied by Princess Royal that secured the silver medal.
“It is not only a testament to what we do and what we believe in, but it just shows that hard work does pay off, putting South Australian beef on the map.”
