OUR VISION

To be the leader in sustainable and authentic food crafting.

OUR STORY

When I think back to my childhood, what I remember most is my family, friends and fresh air. While I played outside – barefoot under the African sun – my family made truly artisanal biltong using natural spice blends, recipes and traditional processes handed down from generation to generation. Slowly but surely, I inherited my family’s  profound passion for producing real, authentic food with a healthy respect for the environment.

The Original Biltong Company has stayed true to this tradition because we believe the best tasting biltong is made from simple, natural, delicious ingredients. It begins with the quality of our grass-fed British and Irish beef, our authentic drying process and our secret blend of herbs and spices, and it ends once that meat has been perfectly cured, hand selected, sliced, and packed for freshness.

Each bite is a proud tribute to the Holtshausen families who came before us and who never cease to inspire our passion, our product, our life.”

- WAYNE HOLSTSHAUSEN, FOUNDER.

WHY OUR BILTONG?

We are obsessed with biltong.   It runs deep in our blood. Our British & Irish grass fed silverside beef is naturally reared and traceable back to the farm. We are hands on in the process ensuring that we are still producing an artisanal biltong product of exceptional quality.   We aren’t into the next big thing, we are into the craftsmanship and curating of the finest cured meats possible. We concentrate on keeping the nutritional content high, and the salt content low whilst producing a meat snack worthy of attention.

THE NUMBERS MATTER

Biltong is high in protein, low in carbohydrates, low in calories and a nutritional food snack that rivals many other snack alternatives. Biltong is a convenient way of getting a quality serving of protein. Including protein in your diet, not only assists with weight loss or maintenance, but it also stabilises blood sugar levels which manages hunger, improves concentration and repairs tissue and muscle – you can’t get that out of a bag of crisps.
