Sacramento here we come!

In 2018, MEATING GROUP, formed the team MEATING GREECE, and participated in the World Butchers’ Challenge, that took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The national team in its very first appearance, in the so called ‘’Olympics of Meat’’, won the Award for the Best Burger Product in the World!

Having the vision of showing that Greece is a worthy competitor in the international stage of the butchery art and the promotion of our great national culinary tradition, MEATING GREECE will participate, for the second consecutive time, in the next World Butchers’ Challenge in September 2020, that will take place in Sacramento, California, U.S.A, in the Golden 1 Center, home to the NBA’s Sacramento Kings.

The World Butchers’ Challenge boldly claims to make rockstars out of butchers and is one step further to doing so after confirming the home for the 2020 competition as Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California – the world’s most technologically advanced and sustainable arena.

Home to the NBA’s Sacramento Kings and host to a who’s who of global superstars including Elton John and Justin Timberlake, this is the first time the arena has set up such a large international food event, let alone one that features 96 competing butchers.

A big thank you to our generous sponsors!

Interested in sponsoring MEATING GREECE?

The goal is to promote the country, to feature new talents from all over Greece, to activate the expatriates, to welcome sponsorship and once more to achieve a great appearance, aiming at more worldwide awards.
