Eighteen-year old student, Delano Jasper, from Wellington in the Western Cape was announced the winner of the 28th annual Championship Boerewors competition.
Jasper’s recipe - South Africa’s number one boerewors - will be available in all Shoprite and Checkers stores throughout South Africa from Friday, 11 September 2020.
“I’m lost for words,” exclaimed Jasper moments after the winner’s announcement.

Apart from the ultimate boerewors bragging rights and the esteemed title of 2020 Championship Boerewors winner, Jasper has also won a brand new Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 RB 6AT.
Second and third place went to Paul Jordaan from Bloemfontein (Free State) and John Marais from Vredendal (Western Cape) respectively.
Jasper’s mom, Yvonne Blaauw, was crowned winner of the Championship Boerewors competition in 2018.
This year’s Championship Boerewors finale was largely a virtual affair - the top 10 finalists joined remotely to oversee the braaiing of their boerewors by chefs Kevin Gibbs and Dion Vengatass, member of the South African National Culinary Team.
An independent judging panel from the South African Chefs Association (SACA) once again took charge of the judging process.
The top 10 finalists were:
Ben Mhlongo from Hazelview, Mpumalanga
Delano Jasper from Wellington, Western Cape
Dewald Rabie from Kroonstad, Free State
Granthom Damonse from Paarl, Western Cape
Henriette Marshall from Hermanus, Western Cape
Jaco van Lilll from Vredendal, Western Cape
Japie Swanepoel from Springs, Gauteng
John Marais from Vredendal, Western Cape
Mathilda Kitshoff from Randfontein, Gauteng
Paul Jordaan from Bloemfontein, Free State
Shoprite and Checkers are proud of the country’s boerewors tradition and celebrate it by hosting the annual Championship Boerewors competition, a nationwide search for South Africa’s very best boerewors.
