European butchers were swinging their golf clubs for a good cause this summer, when the 14th annual Euro Meat Golf Trophy took place from 9th to 11th July at the Jakobsberg Hotel & Golf Resort in Boppard, Rhineland-Palatinate, in Germany.
Proceeds from the event were donated to charitable organisations dedicated to children’s welfare. “We support projects helping ill and disadvantaged children to give them a future,” explains Hermann Schalk, chairman of the association “Sport für einen guten Zweck” (Sports for a Good Cause) and organiser of the Euro Meat Golf Trophy.
Participants comprising entrepreneurs, executives and decision makers competed with each other in eight categories, including an introductory course for golf newcomers as well as the coveted prize for the best butcher.
As well as the sporting competition, networking, sharing experiences and visiting Europe’s top companies were on the agenda. This year, a factory tour was arranged at Sander Gourmet GmbH in Wiebelsheim. In addition, event participants enjoyed the many attractions of the city of Boppard, located in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley, including the Lorelei, world-famous slate rock and theme of Heinrich Heine’s literary monument in probably his most famous poem.
