Famous Kalahari Biltong was founded in August 2003 by André van der Merwe and Roy Hayes. Both founder members and their wife’s and children have since then become involved in the management of the group making this a truly owner-managed family busi- ness. Due to a healthy demand for our product, we were able to expand the brand making us the biggest independently owned biltong retail chain in the Western Cape.
We pride ourselves in having the widest variety of biltong products in the Western Cape available in our stores.
We have secured well-established suppliers throughout the Western Cape and as far afield as Namibia, Northern Cape and the Karoo regions thereby ensuring quality and a unique taste. These suppliers only use the secret recipes’ perfected by Famous Kalahari Biltong over years of experience thereby creating a uniquely identifiable look and taste.
Competing in the market of one of South Africa’s most loved and consumed snack, we have distinguished ourselves through not only our superb and varied range of biltong but also in the customer-friendly environment of our stores and enthusiasm for service. We have also creatively introduced our own range of dried fruit and nuts as well as spices and sauces making the shopping experience even more rewarding.
