Another win for Marius

Edenvale butcher Marius Jordaan from Karaglen SuperSpar has once again scooped a top title at the National Clever Awards.

Jordaan was awarded the Gold Clever Award in the national meat markets category.

This year the platinum award went to the Grove SuperSpar Riverside in Nelspruit.

The best butcheries, both nationally and regionally, were announced at a recent ceremony attended by senior members of the meat production and retail industry, award finalists, judges and media.

Launched in 2005, the Clever Awards were created to ensure butchers meet the needs of the consumer by raising their standards.

Nominations were open between October and December last year for consumers around the country to vote and nominate their best butchery.

Over 30 000 public nominations were received via SMS or online.

Of these, 105 finalists were individually and anonymously assessed against a 212 point checklist, with some of the national winners scoring up to 99.8 per cent.

One of the guest speakers at the awards ceremony was Rudi van der Westhuizen, the executive director at the South African Meat Industry Company (SAMIC), a quality assurance company which was created by the Red Meat Industry of South Africa to ensure the quality and safety of meat. SAMIC is responsible for conducting all the provincial audits on the top nominated butcheries.
