At the Grand Final the ANZCO Foods Butcher Apprentices will tackle the same cuts as they did at the regionals, plus one mystery cut which they find out about five minutes before the competition starts. The ANZCO Foods Butcher Apprentice competitors also have the addition of an interview and multiple-choice exam.
This year, the Alto Butcher Grand Final will see competitors given all mystery cuts five minutes before the competition begins with no compulsory elements included, leaving them to create their ultimate wish-list of value-added cuts.
There will be six finalists in each category at the Grand Final. The first four will be the winners from each of the regionals. The remaining finalists will be taken from the overall top marks across the nation.
The Alto Butcher and ANZCO Foods Butcher Apprentice of the Year Grand Final is staged in Auckland’s Shed 10 as part of a glitzy dinner which is a much-anticipated highlight on the industry calendar.
Date: Thurs 8 August
Location: Shed 10, 89 Quay Street, Queens Wharf, Auckland CBD.
