Meat & Poultry Ontario (MPO) launches Ontario’s Ultimate Burger Competition, an opportunity for burger processors to showcase their expertise and craftsmanship in creating the perfect patty. MPO is on a mission to find the best burgers in six categories: beef, veal, poultry, lamb, pork, and other.

If you are a processor who is passionate about selecting the finest cuts of meat, grinding and blending flavors to perfection, and mastering the art of patty making, this is your chance to shine. MPO’s panel of judges, including industry experts and connoisseurs, will evaluate each patty based on taste, texture, and quality.

“We are thrilled to launch Ontario’s Ultimate Burger Competition and shine a spotlight on the remarkable talent and skills of our province’s burger processors,” said Franco Naccarato, executive director at Meat & Poultry Ontario. “This competition not only celebrates their craft, but also highlights the incredible flavours and quality of Ontario’s burgers. We encourage all processors to seize this opportunity and join us in this exciting journey to find Ontario’s Ultimate Burger.”

The judging will take place on July 19 at Fanshawe College in London, Ont. The winners will be announced at MPO’s gala on October 21 in Muskoka, Ont.
