We are honoured to be the exclusive supplier of Stockyard Beef in the UAE, and to be the only butchers and gourmet food store to offer Stockyard steak delivery right to customers' front doors.

Hosted by the Australian Wagyu Association (AWA), the Wagyu Branded Beef Competition aims to recognise and reward Australia’s most exciting and innovative Wagyu beef brands, and pay tribute to all the hard working and dedicated professionals in the luxury beef sector.

This years’ competition featured a record-breaking 58 entries from Australian Wagyu beef brands, and each one was expertly judged on five different criteria: visual appeal, juiciness, flavour, aroma, and texture.

Further confirming its place as one of the world’s leading Wagyu beef producers, Stockyard Beef has won an extraordinary 45 medals since the AWA competition was first launched in 2012.

A history of steak category wins

In the 2023 edition, kiwami by Stockyard secured the Reserve Champion award for the very first time in the brand’s history, a gold medal within the Fullblood Japanese Black Steak category, and a silver medal within the Purebred Wagyu Steak category.

Boasting an exceptionally high marble score of 9+, kiwami by Stockyard is the company’s pinnacle Wagyu brand and it has won an incredible 23 Wagyu Branded Beef Competition gold medals in just four years. The panel of 36 judges, consisting of sponsors, chefs, restaurateurs, food critics, Wagyu producers, butchers and industry personnel, described the winning cuts as “beautiful and silky, succulent and moist with buttery tones.”

Meanwhile, Stockyard Black, which holds a marble score of between 8 and 9, was awarded gold in the Crossbred Category.

Recognised for its incredible flavour and satisfying texture, the judges commented that Stockyard’s Wagyu beef steak was “beautifully tender with a sweet aroma and melting buttery flavour.”

Adding further excitement, Stockyard Beef was yet again recognised at the 2023 Royal Queensland Awards, the annual event dedicated to Australia’s finest dairy, wine, beer, lamb, and beef producers.

Announced on Friday, May 19, premium Angus brand Stockyard Gold won gold in the Branded Beef Open Class. Judged on appearance, tenderness, flavour, juiciness, and overall liking, it marked Stockyard Beef’s 15th gold award at the Royal Queensland Awards since it was established in 2009.

Nutritious, delicious and ethical beef

David Clark, General Manager of Sales at Stockyard Beef, said: “Each year these awards get more and more competitive as the standards set by Australian brands continue to increase. It makes taking home not one but two golds and our first Reserve Champion even sweeter.”

Experts in Australian Black Angus and Wagyu beef since 1958, Stockyard Beef is based in the fertile plains of south-east Queensland, on the sunny east coast of Australia. Sourced from Australian cattle fed on a balanced diet of nutritious steam flaked grains and other locally produced and sustainable feeds, we offer a whole range of Stockyard Beef products, including hearty Wagyu burgers, filet mignon steaks, Wagyu striploin steak, Black Angus rib eye and much more.

“Part of the success of Stockyard’s long-standing award wins and consistent quality lies in our genetics, whether that is investing in our own breeding herd, or partnering with key producers upstream who offer consistently high-performing genetics and those who share Stockyard’s mission for sustainable beef production,” concludes David.
