Former Allora butcher wins major award

Recent stories

Justin Wade, who commenced his career at the Allora Butchery, has been awarded the national title of Young Australian Butcher of the Year at the Australian Meat Industries National competition held in Brisbane on Saturday.

This is the preliminary round of the World Butchers’ Challenge, branded as the “Olympics of Meat”.

Justin competed against ten butchers who made it through to the final.

Competitors had just two hours and thirty minutes to break down a range of primal cuts into a display of pre-determined products and their own creations.

Justin, who now works for Meatsmith in Victoria, will be part of the Makani Meats Senior Australian Butcher Team that heads to Paris next year for the World Butchers’ Challenge.
