World Butchers' Challenge reaches new corners of the globe
Canada, Mexico and Iceland are the latest nations to put their meat where their mouths are and throw their knives into the ring, after being confirmed to compete in the 2020 World Butchers’ Challenge against our twelve other nations.
The World Butchers’ Challenge has grown exponentially since it was established, from only two nations – Australia and New Zealand – in 2011, to twelve others stepping into the arena last year in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The twelve teams that competed in 2018 are set to return and the desire to join the battle means a sixteenth place is currently being hotly contested for the 2020 Challenge.
As the challenge has grown, so to has the preceding event – the World Champion Butcher Apprentice and Young Butcher competition. Entries into either category are still open to young talent from around the world until March 31.
Keep an eye on latest news for the announcement of our fourth team and for other breaking news. We’ll let you in on a little secret, there’s a few bit to come in the next few weeks!
