Business Information



Established in 2009 as Suidwes Biltong, the well-known Kleinmond biltong shop was rebranded as Jan Biltong t/a Suidwes Biltong in 2022.

A Bit About Jan

Jan Biltong t/a Suidwes Biltong was born and raised at the foot of the Maloti Mountains in Lesotho, where his father taught him the family meat drying techniques using meat hunted in the area. At that time, they had to make do without fridges and preserved the meat in a cement cooler. Jan grew up with this tradition and refined his skill to prepare meat and biltong. The yellow fat biltong was a favourite snack during his family's coastal vacation and their holiday neighbours and friends swooned over the deliciously meaty treats. This inspired Jan to continue his father's legacy and share it with fellow biltong lovers. 

Celebrating a meat air-drying tradition that spans more than 400 years, Jan and his team remain true to the principles of supplying excellent biltong products that are a favourite with everyone from around the world, especially South Africans.

Q - Do Biltong and Jerky taste the same?
