The search is on for South Africa’s number one boerewors recipe!

Shoprite and Checkers’ Championship Boerewors competition is back! Entries for the 2016 Championship Boerewors competition is open, and will remain open until Friday, 2 June 2016.

After the introduction of a new competition structure last year, where the public voted for their favourite recipe in a Top 3 showdown, the competition is now even more exciting and challenging than ever before!

Entrants will get down to serious business to battle it out in six Champion Rounds taking place on Saturdays, 2 and 9 July 2016 in major city centres nationwide. Eighteen contestants (three from each of these events) will be selected to compete in the final round in Cape Town on Saturday, 23 July 2016, where the nation’s top three recipes will be chosen.

The top three recipes will be available in-store for consumers to buy, braai and vote for their favourite from Friday, 19 August until Friday, 9 September 2016.

The votes will be audited and the winner of the 2016 Championship Boerewors competition will be revealed on Thursday, 15 September 2016.

Anyone with an exceptional traditional Boerewors recipe and the skills to make their boerewors from scratch is encouraged to enter.

Fantastic prizes are once again on offer, with SA’s Boerewors Champion standing in line to win the grand prize of a brand new Toyota Hilux 2.8 GD-6 Double Cab Raised Body Raider as well as the honour of having their recipe crowned and sold as SA’s Best Boerewors. There are also great prizes up for grabs for participants from Coca-Cola, All Gold and Simba.

The South African Chefs Association (SACA), a recognised authority on food in South Africa, will take charge of the judging processes and will be making sure that all entries adhere to the guidelines for making truly traditional boerewors.

Shoprite and Checkers are proud of SA’s boerewors tradition and celebrate it every year by hosting the Championship Boerewors competition.

The supermarket chains’ butcheries are famous for exceptional meat products and the group is always looking for new recipes and ideas in order to offer consumers the best in quality and variety. The annual Championship Boerewors competition plays a pivotal role in helping the group to achieve this aim.

Boerewors enthusiasts are encouraged to join in the excitement and submit their finest Boerewors recipe to ensure that the best boerewors in South Africa can be found.
