Our 250g, 500g bulk bag products and Variety Biltong 3 pack products are small enough to fit through most letterboxes.
All other biltong products will not fit through your letterbox, so we'd recommend ordering to an address where someone will be in to receive it. If no-one is in, a card will be left to let you know the delivery has been attempted. This card will give you details on rescheduling a delivery or organising a collection from your local delivery depot.


We can't include any gift messages in your orders at the moment.

Most of our 250g and 500g bulk bags are now in resealable packaging, however some products may still be sent out in our old packaging. If the image of the product has a 'resealable' label on it then it will arrive in a resealable bag.

Product

Biltong is thinly sliced dried, cured meat originating in Southern African countries like Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. If we had to compare it to something, we’d say it was a little like beef jerky. But trust us - it’s a whole different beast. To find out more about biltong, click here.


Our biltong is crafted right here in the UK using top quality British and Irish meat.

We use the silverside cut for our biltong.


We make our biltong by marinating, seasoning and curing lean meat from cows reared on British and Irish soil. To learn more about the process, click here.

Luckily, biltong is made with natural ingredients, a big old dose of protein and all nine essential amino acids (for fat burning, muscle growth, reduced mental fatigue...the list goes on). To know more, read our blog about What is Biltong and its delicious benefits here.

Beef jerky is a classic cooked and dehydrated meat snack, made with salt and a handful of different seasonings. All the moisture is sucked out of the meat, which means it can hang around safely on the shelves for a long time.

Biltong, on the other hand, uses a mix of vinegar and deep, strong spices every step of the way, giving the meat that extra notch of flavour. It also packs a juicier punch, because it has a slightly higher amount of fat running through the meat. Beef jerky has less fat - hence why it can be drier (and tougher on the teeth). To read the full story, click here.


Biltong is relatively similar to beef jerky being both dried meat snacks, but they are totally different beasts in terms of taste, texture, and production as biltong has zero sugar and uses the process of air-drying rather than dehydrating or cooking which locks in almost all of the meat’s minerals, vitamins, and delicious flavor made with just a medley of herbs and spices and not a single grain of added sugar.

If you're in the UK and wondering where to buy biltong, we are ranged in store at Sainsbury’s and Waitrose. You may also buy our biltong online in Ocado, Amazon, and here in our webstore.

From our webstore we deliver to France, Germany, Italy, and Hungary. We also have Amazon stores active in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. If you are outside of these countries you may be able to get delivery from one of these stores.

We guarantee that our biltong will arrive to you with a shelf life of at least 45 days but our products will normally have a longer shelf life of 3-6 months.

If you can resist the urge to munch down all your biltong straight away we suggest sticking to the following storage rules.
28g packs — Once opened consume within 24 hours.
Bulk bags — Once opened our biltong should be refrigerated and consumed within 10 days. We also recommend keeping the biltong in an airtight container to keep the product as fresh as possible.

All our products are low carb and high protein making them perfect as part of a keto diet.

Whilst we work to ensure any allergens are not present in our biltong and other products it is packed in an environment where surrounding materials could contain traces of common allergens.

Unfortunately we are not Halal certified.

Biltong definitely.

Bil - the Dutch word for rump/buttock (eg. ‘Get off your bil and get me a snack’)

Tong - the word for tongue (eg. ‘This biltong’s so spicy my tong is on fire’)
