W. Black crowned Grand Champion at 2024 Royal Queensland Branded Beef Awards

Updated: May 28

Exclusive Australian wagyu brand W. Black recognised for superior quality at last week’s Royal Queensland Branded Beef Awards.

Earning a score of 94.8, judges selected W. Black out of 60 entries across all beef classes as Grand Champion of the Branded Beef Awards, having already awarded it Gold in the Wagyu Class 4 AUS-MEAT Marble Score 7+.

Established in 2018, W. Black is Andrews Meat Industries’ newest premium wagyu brand with availability limited to US, Japanese and certain Middle Eastern markets, as well as select domestic clients.

Jeremy Stuart, General Manager of Export at Andrews Meat Industries, expressed sincere thanks for the team behind the success of W. Black. 

“The dedication of Australian producers flows through the supply chain to our production and packing teams through to clientele around the globe – the customer really can taste the passion that produces W. Black. It’s there from genetics selection to plating.” Jeremy said.

“It is a great honour to be crowned Grand Champion at these awards, especially since this was our first foray into competition for this brand.”

Presented by the Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland (RNA), the Royal Queensland Branded Beef Awards is an annual event dedicated to unearthing Australia’s finest beef led by a team of expert judges. Since 2009, the awards have provided an opportunity for Australian brands and producers to benchmark and promote their produce.
