Chris and Karen Biddles from Te Atarangi Angus are the victorious winners of this year’s Producer of the Decade at the Steak of Origin grand final held on 15 May 2012.
To celebrate 10 years of the contest to find New Zealand’s most tender and tasty steak, all results from previous competitions were tallied up to find the top performing and most consistent producer.
Alongside this special award, the annual competition was once again hotly contested with Alex Macmillan from Pipiwai being named the 2012 Steak of Origin Grand Champion.
Head judge, Graham Hawkes, said this 10 year celebration has made the competition one to remember.
“There’s been a real festival feel to this year’s contest, with 10 judges from across the decade involved,” Hawkes said. “The competition has certainly come a long way from its humble beginnings but one thing’s for sure, the steak has always been incredible.
