The Original Biltong Company
There are many different versions and stories about where biltong jerky actually originated from, but one thing remains consistent; it’s been around for a long time. It came about from the need to preserve the meats that were hunted or raised for food as none of today’s modern preservation techniques existed.

South African folklore suggests that biltong was born from the wandering Dutch herdsmen. The hunters after making a kill needed a way to preserve the large amount of meat they had just acquired so that it would not go to waste.

They learned the methods of dried meat from Dutch settlers and used salt and vinegar to cure the meat, and spices that were freely available to add flavour. It was then hung in strips over tree branches to dry naturally in the sun. After a couple of days it would be perfectly preserved and ready to eat or carry with them on their journey.
