Keep it in the fridge in a paper bag or air-tight container in the freezer.

Even though biltong is air-dried it is still considered a fresh meat and should be treated as such.

Store in a paper bag in the fridge for up to 2 weeks – it will dry out with time.

Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to  3 months – this will retain the moisture.  Be sure to keep it covered tightly to reduce risk of freezer-burn.

Our fresh Boerewors have a refrigerated shelf-life of 7 days and can be frozen up to 3 months.

Biltong is a kind of cured and air-dried beef that originated in South Africa. Many different types of meat are used to produce it, ranging from beef through game meats to fillets of ostrich from commercial farms.
It is typically made from raw fillets of meat cut into strips following the grain of the muscle, or flat pieces sliced across the grain. It is similar to beef jerky in that they are both spiced, dried meats, but differ in their typical ingredients, taste and production process.
Boerewors is a fresh, traditional South African beef sausage, directly translated from Afrikaans it means “farmer’s sausage”. Unless specified (like our Grabouw Boerewors that has pork as well as beef) we use only lean beef in our Boerewors. The spices used are mainly nutmeg, pepper and coriander. The perfect sausage on the “braai” (BBQ), grill or pan-fry, it is truly a great all-rounder.
We have around 511 titles listed on this site. All of these titles are either in stock or, to the best of our knowledge, can be obtained for you in a reasonable time. We cannot guarantee that every title is in stock at all times, but we are currently supplying from stock around 90% of items ordered. 
Customers should be aware that we are not solely an internet-based business - we also handle orders received by the web, e-mail, fax and telephone as well as our retail store. For this reason it is NOT possible for us to indicate current stock levels on the website. 
If an item is out of stock at the time your order is processed here, your order for that item will be recorded, and the item concerned will be supplied as soon as we are able to obtain more stock. In the case of items which have not yet been published, this will be made clear in the description of the title and, again, your order will be recorded and supplied as soon as the product becomes available. 
In either case, please note the following: 
  • We will do our best to remind you from time to time that we are holding an order for you, and to give you the latest information we have.
  • If we are informed by the publisher or supplier that a title is no longer available, we will advise you of this, cancel your order, and either remove the item from the website or mark it as 'no longer available' and prevent it from being ordered.
  • We obtain items from suppliers in South Africa. In these cases we ask you to be patient.
