The prestigious World Steak Challenge (WSC) is returning as a face-to-face event in 2022, with the winners set to be announced in Dublin in September.

The competition puts the world’s finest steaks cuts to the test and gives steak producers and suppliers the opportunity to showcase product quality, breed credentials, processing standards and flavour on a global stage.

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,” says Lorraine Hendle, MD of the retail, manufacturing and hospitality portfolio at William Reed Business Media, the company behind the WSC.

“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.
