Alliance’s handpicked beef won three gold medals at the recent World Steak Challenge.
Three New Zealand red meat producers won big at the World Steak Challenge in Dublin.
Anzco and First Light Foods won a gold medal each in the ribeye section, while Alliance Group’s Pure South Handpicked 55-Day Aged Beef won three gold medals.
Hundreds of beef suppliers from around the world had their finest products judged by an independent panel of chefs and experts at the prestigious event.
Alliance general manager of sales Shane Kingston says the win reaffirmed the status of Handpicked 55-Day Aged Beef as among the world’s best.
“Handpicked 55-Day Aged Beef is in demand across the globe and we expect this to continue. It is a remarkable product with unprecedented levels of tenderness and a milder beef flavour profile.
Anzco general manager sales Rick Walker says he’s thrilled with the recognition.
“Greenstone Creek is hand-selected by master graders at our Eltham site who ensure only the best goes into a Greenstone Creek bag,” Walker said.
“Every Greenstone Creek product is then aged for 21 days resulting in meat that’s beautifully marbled and tender.
“Greenstone Creek is featured at 23 top New Zealand restaurants and we’re sure the award will heighten interest in the premium range.”
