Our Story

We started out to satisfy our own hunger for Biltong, quality fresh meat, consistency and good service.

The journey of Biltong.mu started in 2018 when my own insatiable need for readily available, good quality Biltong and Droëwors in Mauritius became unbearable.

 

I would wake up on Saturday mornings here on our paradise island home of Mauritius, and jokingly say to my wife Louise, “Let’s go down to the butchery for a kilogram of freshly sliced biltong.” and then reality would strike, and I would realise that my need would go unsatisfied.

 

I started experimenting making my own Biltong, which admittedly was not very good to begin with.  I then started a quest to ensure a consistent supply of top-notch quality Biltong in Mauritius, and roped in the skills of my father, Marius, a former butcher widely renowned for his excellent Biltong and Droëwors.

 

Under the guidance of Marius, we set up a state-of-the-art production capability to produce the finest quality Biltong and I also put my skills to work to set up this eCommerce channel to sell and distribute our products.

 

Our product range has grown to include a range of Biltong, Fresh Meat products, Baked Goods, Deli products, Candy and a range of other goods.
