Due to the rapidly increasing number of COVID-19 cases across Australia, Angus Australia has made the difficult decision to postpone the Verified Black Angus Beef BBQ Competition, set to now take place in November.
Following the success of the inaugural Verified Black Angus Beef BBQ Competition in Albury 2019, Angus Australia was looking forward to the return of hosting this prestigious competition on February 26 at the Angus Australia office in Armidale.
While the decision to postpone the event has been a difficult one to make, Angus Australia has a duty of care to ensure the safety of attendees, participants, sponsors, and staff of the event.
"While it is incredibly disappointing that we have had to postpone the Verified Black Angus Beef BBQ Competition, the safety and wellbeing of our members, our team and the wider community is of the utmost importance," Angus Australia commercial supply chain manager Liz Pearson said.
"It will be fantastic to have our members and Angus producers here onsite for what will undoubtably be an exciting opportunity to network with our Verified Black Angus Beef brand owners, bringing our members together with those down the supply chain who are protecting and promoting the Angus brand all while enjoying Australia's best barbequed Verified Black Angus Beef on the rescheduled date of the 26th of November 2022."
