HOW TO STORE YOUR BILTONG
Usually the only reason for Biltong or any other cured meat to go bad is if it is stored incorrectly.
Sliced Biltong should ideally only be wrapped in paper and should be unwrapped by the customer as soon as possible. Once unwrapped, it should be stored in either a wooden or glass bowl without a lid so that the meat can breath. Please note that you must turn the meat every day so that it does not remain in contact in the same area, because if covered or not turned it will sweat and as a result will go mouldy. This happens because when it sweats the moisture lies on the wrapping and a mould will grow on the wrapping and later it will spread to the biltong as well. The bowl should then be placed in a cool dry place until needed.
Biltong in sticks, you must unwrap them as soon as you receive them and hang them up to air for the same reasons as above. Please note that the best before dates that we place on all meat products will be 7 days from dispatch. This is because we do not know how you are going to store you biltong. If you are going to eat this after the best before, that is perfectly OK, as this is not a use by date just a recommended best before consumption date. If you have stored your biltong as instructed it will be absolutely fine to eat for anything up to 3 months.
Please note that under no circumstance should the biltong be left in the wrapping that you received it in, if you do leave it in the wrapping your biltong might go mouldy as a result. If you have not followed our suggested instructions and your biltong goes mouldy we will not replace it.
If however you receive your biltong and it is not in 100% tip top condition for any reason you must notify us within 24hrs of receiving your order, so that we can arrange for a replacement to be sent.
