Friedr. Dick is announced as official partner of the WBC
Sharp knives will be an absolute prerequisite when the world's elite butchers meet in Sacramento, CA. in the USA next year. Friedr. Dick – one of the leading global manufacturers of chef's and butcher's knives –will provide sharp equipment for the 15 teams who have registered so far for the World Butcher's Challenge.
In addition to providing the equipment for nearly all of the teams, Friedr. Dick also has the special honour of presenting the “Friedr. Dick Golden Knife Award” to the winning teams: the winner's trophy in the shape of a knife.
Friedr. Dick has strong roots in the butcher's trade and has been one of its most industry leading partners for decades. “We support butchers with a respectful approach to meat and food and advocate uncompromising quality and functionality with our products and brand”, states Steffen Uebele, Managing Director of Friedr. Dick .
“That's why we are particularly looking forward to supporting the trade at the World Championships and providing the perfect equipment for the teams with our knives and tools.”
The World Championships have grown in stature since they were held for the first time in 2011. Rod Slater, Chairman of the World Butchers‘ Challenge, can hardly believe how the event has developed over the last few years: “When I first had the idea to arrange a competition between butchers from Australia and New Zealand in 2011, I would never have dreamed that one day butchers from all corners of the world would compete against each other”, states Rod Slater.
“In Friedr. Dick we have found a partner who is just as committed to the butcher's trade and profession. I have known Friedr. Dick since my apprenticeship days and I am absolutely convinced of the quality of the products.”
Friedr. Dick is the only manufacturer worldwide who offers a complete range of knives, sharpening steels, ancillary items for chefs and butchers as well as grinding machines, sharpening machines and knife cleaning devices. The long-standing tradition and experience of manufacturing products for chefs and butchers allow a continuous development of innovative products. Input from customers, especially end-users and our own ideas are converted into high-quality products.
