Growing up in South Africa, biltong was more than just a snack, it was a staple. It was not uncommon for me to be teething on a slab of biltong as a toddler. As an adult biltong featured in most social gatherings: with a cold beer, paired with wine and cheese or simply as a high-protein snack.
Often compared to jerky, it is anything but. The unique marinating, spicing and cool air-drying process creates an artisanal snack that retains more nutrients and is more tender and flavorful.
I have spent the past 18 years in product innovation, development and quality guiding both high growth food and beverage brands and overseeing product streams for some of the largest CPG brand in the world including Campbell Soup and Chobani to name a few. Throughout this journey I have always maintained a dogma that good food can be just that, GOOD, both in terms of taste and nutrition and when passion is your driver, you do not need to sacrifice either.
BLOK Biltong is my life’s journey captured in a food product. Wholesomeness from simple ingredients in a transparent, honest, natural and authentic brand.
Enjoy the taste of South Africa, enjoy BLOK Biltong! Also read about the amazing artist featured on all of our packaging here.
