The top three finalists in the 2017 Championship Boerewors competition were announced at the Top 18 Round in Cape Town on Saturday, 22 July 2017. The competition was tough, but the recipes of James Lebepe (from Atteridgeville, Gauteng), Moses Mathebula (from Lenyenye, Limpopo) and Queen Mathebula (from Malamulele, Limpopo) proved to be a cut above the rest.  

The top three recipes will be available in Shoprite and Checkers supermarkets throughout South Africa between Friday, 18 August and Friday, 8 September. Then it will be up to the South African public to buy, braai, try and vote for the recipe they believe deserves to win the coveted 25th Championship Boerewors title. By doing so, one lucky consumer stands the chance of winning a brand new Toyota Aygo.

The winner of the 2017 Championship Boerewors competition will be announced on Wednesday, 13 September and will drive off in a brand-new Toyota Hilux 2.8 GD-6 Double Cab Raised Body Raider. The winning recipe – #SAsNo1 Championship Boerewors – will also be for sale in all Shoprite and Checkers stores from Friday, 15 September 2017, just in time for Heritage Day.

Shoprite and Checkers are proud of South Africa’s boerewors tradition and celebrate it every year by hosting the Championship Boerewors competition.
