A hand-selected striploin has placed Harvey Beef a cut above the rest at the Perth Royal Food Awards.

The company was awarded Champion Grain Fed Beef at the annual awards last week, competing against high-calibre producers from around the State.

The awards are run by the Royal Agricultural Society of WA and celebrate the best of WA produce across meat, pantry goods, small goods, sausages and burgers.

Harvey Beef representatives hand selected the striploin from one of their WA producers, which judges then blind tasted against competitors in the category.

Judges scored the striploin 93.8 out of a possible 100 awarding points for the good colour, marbling, aroma and the tenderness when cooked.

Harvey Beef’s jerky also took out a silver award in the small goods category, with judges commenting on the well-balanced flavours.

In accepting the award, Harvey Beef general manager of livestock Kim McDougall praised WA cattle farmers for their hard work.

“Our farmers work tirelessly to put the best quality WA beef on our customers’ plates and this award validates and recognises their commitment,” McDougall said.

“It’s this focus on quality that has put Western Australia on the map as a leading supplier of quality beef to markets across the world.”
