SOUTHERN Queensland beef brand Stockyard has been awarded the Champion Beef Medal at the 2023 Sydney Royal Fine Food Awards.

The company’s Stockyard Gold entry beat 33 other entrants to secure the coveted award. Stockyard Gold had previously won a gold medal in the grain fed category, scoring 95.1 out of a possible 100 points.

While Stockyard won the beef section, Victorian lamb brand Midfield Meats took out the overall branded meat grand champion. The gold and silver medals were announced earlier this month, with the grand champions being announced this week.

The Stockyard Gold entry was the overall beef winner being recognised for its remarkable taste and exceptional marbling.

“The Awards are synonymous with excellence in production, something we at Stockyard strive for each and every day, from carefully selected industry-leading genetics to animal nutrition through to distribution and customer care,” said Lisa Sharp, general manager of marketing and innovation at Stockyard Beef.

“Stockyard Gold is a firm favourite with chefs and consumers due to its unique flavour, exceptional marbling and consistent quality. 2023 is Stockyard’s 65th year of operations and to be recognised with the Champion Medal, particularly given the calibre of the competition, is a fitting way to celebrate our enduring commitment to producing exceptional Australian beef.”

Kiwami by Stockyard, the pinnacle in Stockyard’s Wagyu beef portfolio, was also awarded a gold medal in the Marble Score 5+ category – along with six other entrants.

Stockyard Black, the label reserved for beef that achieves a marble score 8 or 9, also secured silver in the same category at this year’s
Awards.

These awards will bring Stockyard’s medal tally at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Awards to 38 over the last 16 years.
