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.

"Meat snacks are beefing up. The sector’s 16.7% volume percentage gain is the fifth biggest of the year. Brits chewed through an extra 1.1 million kilos for this protein boost, piling on an extra £11.m (9.4%) in the process."

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, since January 2016, we have been on the route to BRC-approval, to be granted in June 2016.
