RQFWS Branded Lamb Competition

The Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show (RQFWS) Branded Lamb Competition unearths the nation’s finest lamb in the retail market. For a country that adores its red meat and produces some of the finest lamb in the world, this competition is a true showcase of the best of the best.

The competition includes MSA and non-MSA Branded Lamb across three classes – 20kg or under; more than 20kg; and restaurant trade more than 24kg. The meat is judged on tenderness, flavour, juiciness and overall liking, while a chop is cut off before being cooked for visual judging.

Chief Judge Elaine Millar will once again lead a team of expert judges, including top chefs from award-winning restaurants, butchers, food consultants and food journalists.

Don’t miss this opportunity to have your products judged at the highest level, by some of the nation’s top judges.

Join us in celebrating Australia’s finest produce - this is a unique branding opportunity for your business, so make sure you don’t miss out.
