Cleaver award-winning butcheries

The Cleaver Awards, an initiative of the South African Red Meat Industry Forum, recognise butcheries that meet the highest standards, according to consumers. They’re judged on in-store hyqiene, the quality of their beef, perceived value for money and the ability to offer good advice. They were also judged in three categories: those with four or more till points, those with three or fewer till points and food market/supermarket butcheries. The winners in each category received Gold Awards and the runners-up Platinum Awards.

Here’s the full list of winners:
