How do I store my products?
All meat products are best kept in a sealed container below 5°C - preferably the refrigerator. Store just like any other cold deli meat that you purchase from the supermarket.
How long will products last?
If stored correctly, the products will last 7 days from delivery. All products should be stored in the freezer past 7 days. Unless otherwise stated on the bags best before date.
To prolong the products lifespan store products in an airtight container in the freezer. If stored in the freezer, in an unopened air tight container Beef Jerky and Snap Sticks can last 12+ months and Biltong can last 8+ months. Times may differ depending on storage conditions. If the seal is broken during this time, this will alter the lifespan.
Products must be defrosted safely for consumption and consumed within 1-2 days once defrosted. DO NOT refreeze any product that has been defrosted.
Our beef and lamb products may contain traces of gluten in the soy sauces and spices. Please read the information provided on all pre packaged items and take advice from these separately as they may differ.
Biltong or Jerky?
Traditionally, Biltong is a South African method of drying meat. Biltong is dried as a full piece of topside beef before sliced. You will find that Biltong is softer in the middle as the product dried from the outside in, leaving the centre moist and juicy. In comparison, Jerky is sliced into thin slabs before the drying process begins. This results in a chewier, harder product which is completely dry unlike biltong. All Jerky is marinated in soy sauce resulting in a sweeter taste.
