- Butcheries with fouror more till points,
- Butcheries with three or fewer till points and,
- Foodmarket butcheries
Once the votes are tallied, butcheries will be short-listed according to the number of votes received in each respective category.
The short-listed finalists will be visited anonymously and independent evaluations by an Industry evaluator against a 212 point checklist will be conducted.
Each National Category Winner will be awarded a first prize of a Platinum Trophy and R 20 000. A second prize of a Gold trophy and R 10 000 will also be awarded.
There will be a Platinum and Gold Award winner chosen in each of the nine provinces. Winners will be announced at an awards function early next year.
