Eighty-eight of the country’s best boerewors-makers battled it out on in the provincial rounds of the Championship Boerewors competition. And now finally, after a period of 5 months during which more than 1000 boereworsmakers went through three elimination rounds, and 400 judges tasted more than 51 000 pieces of boerewors, the day has come when the new Boerewors Champion will be chosen. 



The ten finalists will be travelling to Sun City for the much anticipated grand finalé that takes place in the Valley of Waves on 5 October where the winner will drive away with a brand new Toyota Hilux 2.7 Double Cab Raised Body Raider and the much sought after 2013 Boerewors crown!  Winners of the provincial rounds each walk away with R2000 Checkers or Shoprite meat vouchers and gift hampers from Coca-Cola, All Gold and Simba.


The ten finalists for the Sun City grand finalé are:

• Eastern Cape – Olivier Kritzinger from Joubertina

Top food experts from the South African Chefs Association (SACA) will act as official judges during the final round at Sun City to ensure that only the best of the best is selected as the 2013 Championship Boerewors.  The winning 2013 Shoprite Checkers Championship Boerewors will also receive the South African Chefs Association’s stamp of approval, to ensure that the ingredients for South Africa’s best loved boerewors are of the highest quality.



The country’s many loyal boerewors lovers can meanwhile start preparing for yet another taste sensation, because the winning boerewors recipe will hit the shelves of Checkers, Checkers Hyper and Shoprite stores countrywide, on 11 October.
