South Africans have the opportunity to vote for the country’s very best boerewors, as the Top 3 recipes from the 25th annual Championship Boerewors competition are now available in all Shoprite and Checkers stores nationwide.
Consumers are encouraged to buy, braai and vote for their favourite between Friday, 18 August and Friday, 8 September 2017. By doing so, one lucky individual also stands the chance of winning a brand new Toyota Aygo.
A country-wide search to find SA’s No.1 Championship Boerewors kicked off in April this year when hundreds of entrants submitted their special recipes for consideration. Through various judging rounds, the contestants were whittled down to just three finalists: Queen Mathebula (from Malamulele, Limpopo), James Lebepe (from Atteridgeville, Gauteng) and Moses Mathebula (from Lenyenye, Limpopo).
It is now up to the South African public to have the last word by buying, braaing and voting for the recipe they believe deserves to be crowned the 25th annual Boerewors Champion.
The Top 3 finalists are all vying for the grand prize which includes a brand new Toyota Hilux 2.8 GD-6 Double Cab Raised Body Raider as well as the honour of having one’s recipe crowned and sold as #SAsNo1. The winner will be announced at the Langa Sports Centre in Cape Town on Wednesday 13 September.
Shoprite and Checkers are proud of South Africa’s boerewors tradition and celebrate it every year by hosting the Championship Boerewors competition.
