Supporting Team Canada @ World Butcher Challenge

For the first time ever, Canada will be entering a team into the World Butchers’ Challenge taking place in Sacramento, California, September 5, 2020. They are up against 15 other teams from around the world to determine who will be the World's Best Butchers.  We need your help to bring home a the championship!

Competing comes with a hefty price tag as competitors must travel across our vast country to practice together, not to mention the expense of travel to California for the competition itself.  Funds raised from this campaign will also help defer other associated costs such as uniforms, props, and ‘practice’ proteins. Please consider supporting the team.
