The Origins of "The Cheshire Biltong Company"

Ryan Walker

Based in the heart of Cheshire we are a husband and wife team who specialise in making Biltong from locally sourced British & Irish Beef. Our parent company, The Weston Biltong Company was formed in 2016 and has grown dramatically over the past five years, going from producing 30kg a week to now processing  tonnes of biltong per month. The Weston Biltong company uses all Silverside cuts of meat and is renowned for it’s range of flavours and bulkier bag sizes to meet the needs of those using Biltong as part of a high protein diet.

As a progressive award winning British Business it was a logical progression for us to move into using different cuts and types of meat to make Biltong. It was from this seed of thought that The Cheshire Biltong Company was born, allowing us to use our knowledge of making Biltong to appeal to a much wider audience.

The Cheshire Biltong Company specialises in Biltong made from meats such as Ostrich, Venison & Kangaroo, as well as British Sirloin Steaks, with many more species currently under testing.

Our Venison originates from the Historic Estate of Tatton Park in Cheshire and includes both Red & Fallow Wild Deer. The Ostrich used is sourced from one of the oldest suppliers of Exotic meat Founded in 1994 it was one of the first Ostrich farms in the UK and now holds around 27 breeding Ostriches. The Kangaroo is also sourced through the same company although this is imported directly from Australia.

Our Sirloin steaks are all sourced through Market Drayton Auction Market and are slaughtered less than three miles away in Haslington. These are then Butchered by local Butchers Graham & Mark Stubbs of Meat Direct.

As Cheshire residents for over a quarter of a century we are proud to be members of the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce as well as collaborating with other local Cheshire Businesses for both professional support and product sourcing. As well as employing an all Cheshire local team.

We are the proud winners of the Nantwich Business initiative Dabbers Den (2018), as well as the Taste Cheshire Small Food Producer Award 2019 and are looking forward to building on the success of The Weston Biltong Company through further awards for The Cheshire Biltong Company.
