You have arrived at the best Biltong factory and SA Shop in Essex and a warm welcome awaits you.


We have two shops in Essex, as there are some things which just cannot be sent out with Internet orders. Items like Chicken Flatties for example, but these are in great demand, so to be safe give us a call in advance to place an order.

Seasonal products include Oxtails and Shin (on the Marrow bone) for your Potjies, soups stews.

You can also expect to buy only the FRESHEST BILTONG, DROEWORS AND SNAP STICKS - packed in a paper packet of course!

In addition we offer a LEKKER CHAT about sports (all Sharks supporters are very welcome!), the old country (whether SA or Zim) and anything else you have on your mind. For those missing home there is always a hug ready if you want one! Julle is almal welkom om te kom kuier 'n bietjie.

For Afrikaans-speaking customers wanting to exercise your mother tongue - Evelyn and Rose will give it a try, but may not be too fluent! Jeanette is learning fast and Erwin is Afrikaans speaking.

Members of our team will be in attendance to help you with your biltong selection. Both Jeanette and Evelyn know their Biltong! A vital member of our production team, Gill is busy cutting meat in the factory on a part time basis, even though she is a vegetarian - good to employ as she doesn't eat our profits! Erwin and Zack keep the male balance. Erwin, in the production team, doing the cutting, mincing, spicing and hanging duties. Zack is our Factory Assistant who also does deliveries to our butchery outlets. We are a happy team and will be working together to ensure your satisfaction.
