Ben's story

Ben's Biltong was born out of the need to keep my South African wife in good supply of her favourite high protein snack. As more family moved over from South Africa and friends becoming hooked, biltong production was quickly becoming  a full time job - so a full time job it became. Family, friends and an array of loyal customers are now enjoying my meaty goodness, and (hopefully) so will you!

Based on a small farm in the Warwickshire countryside, Ben’s Biltong’s mission is to produce best quality biltong from the best quality ingredients, sourced and produced responsibly.

With over 25 years in the food industry, Ben has developed a keen eye for detail and uses only the finest silverside cuts of grass fed, high welfare, locally sourced British beef. 

The beef is gently spiced by hand and slow dried for quality and flavour. Using traditional spice combinations and techniques enables Ben to bring the true taste of South Africa to the UK.

As well as traditional recipes Ben likes to experiment with more contemporary flavours such as Jamaican Jerk and a large range of chilli varieties, making sure that there is something to fulfil needs of, and satisfy even the toughest biltong critic!

Ben's Biltong is an ideal snack. It is healthy, low in sugar and fat and at 50% per 100g, biltong is an excellent source of protein. Great for sport and those with active lives. For the rest of us it also pairs especially well with craft beers and ciders!
