What is biltong?

Think of it as the ultimate jerky upgrade. Biltong is dried, cured meat originating in South Africa, packed with flavor and protein. Made with quality cuts of beef, it's naturally air-dried, giving it a unique, softer texture compared to jerky. Imagine juicy, flavorful slices that melt in your mouth – that's biltong!

How is it different from jerky?

Both are dried meats, but here's the kicker: biltong is slowly air-dried, resulting in a softer, chewier texture. Plus, it's traditionally sliced thicker, offering a more satisfying bite. Think of it as the gourmet jerky, with a distinct South African twist.

What types of meat are used?

Traditionally, beef is the star, but some producers use game meats like ostrich or kudu for a truly exotic experience. We focus on premium grass-fed New Zealand beef, ensuring top-notch quality and taste.

What does it taste like?

The magic lies in the seasoning and recipe. Our Biltong boasts a rich, savory meaty flavor with hints of coriander, vinegar and Worcestershire Sauce. We offer a range of flavors, from regular(safari), chilli(peri-peri), garlic and our exotic Smoked Variant. Tantalize your taste buds with our unique snack.
