The country’s best butcheries announced

Now in their fourteenth year, the Cleaver Awards, acknowledge butcheries which meet consumer expectations on in-store hygiene, the supply of quality assured roller marked South African Beef, their level of competency in offering the best advice on meal preparations and perceived value for money.

Mr Dewald Olivier, who was appointed as executive officer of the The SA Feedlot Association (SAFA) last year, says that since these Awards started in 2005, butchery standards have significantly improved and feedback from consumers show that the majority perceive the Cleaver Awards to be a seal of approval, most importantly because a butchery cannot enter themselves, they have to be nominated by their customers.

The Cleaver Awards are an initiative of the South African Red Meat Industry Forum. Consumers are asked towards the end of every year to vote online and nominate their best butchery. These nominations are tallied and finalists are individually and anonymously assessed against a 212 point checklist. This year saw over 40 000 nominations received, the biggest to date. 

Butchers were judged according to three categories namely;

  1. Butcheries with three or more till points,
  2. Butcheries with three or fewer till points and,
  3. Food market / Supermarket butcheries
