The search to find England’s best steak products is now on as EBLEX launches three brand new competitions for 2015.

The three competitions will form part of the first ever ‘EBLEX Quality Standard Mark Excellence Awards’. New for 2015, the awards were developed to recognise and reward quality, innovation and excellence in beef and lamb production.

The three competitions, which assess different aspects of quality steak production, are:
• ‘England’s Best Steak Pie 2015’
• ‘England’s Best Sirloin Steak 2015’
• ‘England’s Best Innovative Steak 2015’
Open to multiple retailers and their suppliers, independent retail butchers and farm shops, catering butchers and manufacturers supplying the foodservice industry, entrants can choose to enter into one, two or all three of the steak awards.

Awards organiser, foodservice project manager for EBLEX, Hugh Judd, said: “We created the ‘Quality Standard Mark Excellence Awards’ to encourage innovation, promote best practice and recognise those businesses that are leading the way in terms of quality and innovation in steak products. Beef and lamb steaks are top selling products in both the retail and foodservice industries and a core part of EBLEX’s product development work ““ so we think it’s time to celebrate the best!

“It costs nothing to enter but winning an award could make a real difference to sales, so don’t miss out on the chance to put your business on the map.”
