What is biltong?

Biltong is dried, cured meat from South Africa; the word ‘biltong’ originates from the Dutch words ‘bil’, meaning rump or hindquarter, and ‘tong’, meaning ‘strip’.

Indigenous peoples from South Africa, such as the Khoikhoi, found that slicing the meat into strips, curing it with salt, and hanging it up to dry was an effective way of preserving the meat. European settlers arrived to Southern Africa in the early 17th century, and experimented with the curing process, bringing in vinegar, saltpetre and spices including pepper, coriander and cloves.

Storage Info

35g bags can be eaten in one sitting. For the bigger bags, once opened, put the biltong in an OPEN bowl (i.e. with nothing covering the bowl) in the fridge and mix it up a bit. Mix it up daily for a maximum of 3 days or until consumed. Most mould starts to happen when the biltong comes into contact with another 'surface'; moisture then forms at that surface contact point. The inevitable and unavoidable universal process then starts... MOISTURE + OXYGEN + WARMTH = MOULD.

Information for Trade Partners

What is biltong and why should you care?

Biltong is a dried meat delicacy from South Africa, usually made using beef. We marinade the meat in quality herbs and spices, before hanging it to dry and then slice it to order.

The past few years have seen a growth in the UK biltong market, a trend that continues to rise. As the largest online retailer with over 6 years in business, we at The Chichester Biltong Company have driven and capitalised on this growth.

So what makes us so special?

Our combinations of the traditional South African recipe and flavours for the British market have been honed since we started, now resulting in us winning Great Taste Awards for the last two years (2014 & 2015). We are also accredited by The Guild of Fine Food and SALSA and we are happy to say that we have been approved a Double AA Grade by BRC.

We are now ready to retail via offline businesses, including delicatessens, pubs, hotels, restaurants, cafés, shops and more.
