We were very proud to see that world renowned Gail Simmons is also a fan of our biltong! In her latest book called “Talking with My Mouth Full: My Life as a Professional Eater,” the Special Projects Director with Food & Wine magazine and regular judge on the television show Top Chef, said “Joubert and Monty’s biltong is the gold standard of air-dried meat.”

Frommer’s Review – Travel Guides – Cape Town Shopping

“This is one of the best places to sample good biltong; try a bit of kudu and beef — ask for the latter to be slightly moist and sliced.”

So is it “No-bite” or an extra portion of biltong?


Righto, so after sugerboy Malinga and the Protea’s had us munching on our fingernails during the week, it is time to focus on the rugby again. And given the fixture list this weekend, we are probably in line for a few more cliff hangers – so best you employ the service of that vile tasting “No-bite” nail varnish, or my personal favourite – head to the local Joubert and Monty for an extra large portion of the toughest biltong you can find!

The World’s Strangest Street Food – BILTONG

Introduced by Dutch Voortrekkers who colonized and travelled across South Africa in the mid-1800’s, biltong—jerky made from the dried meat of exotic local fauna like ostrich, springbok, and kudu—is now sold in packets at Cape Town market stalls, at roadside gas stations, and in supermarkets. The meat, which is cured in apple cider or malt vinegar and then rubbed with spices (usually black pepper, coriander, brown sugar, and garlic), is addictively salty and chewy. It’s also tough enough to withstand a nuclear holocaust (or at least a long flight layover).

Where to find it: Joubert & Monty’s Biltong has several stalls around the city, including at the ClocktowerCenter along the Victoria & Albert waterfront. http://www.travelandleisure.com/

Rugby beefs up sales of biltong


November 25, 2004 – Business report – By Dirk De Vynck

Cape Town – The biltong trade has grown into a huge industry in the past few years, leading to shops and kiosks opening up in shopping centres across the country.

“The mushrooming of the industry can also be attributed to the relatively high margins that can be earned on biltong sales, especially relative to other meat products.”

On average, the margins were about 20 percent above those of other meat products, although there were shops where the margins were up to 50 percent higher.

There is also a very close relationship between biltong sales and sport, especially rugby.

Chris Joubert, the managing director of biltong enterprise Joubert & Monty’s (J&M), said that on a rugby test day it was not out of the ordinary to double biltong sales…

Biltong profits

May 23, 2003 – Business report

Whether it’s beef, chicken, ostrich or turkey, biltong is booming.

We all know South Africa is mad about it, but is it a profitable business?

Joubert & Monty’s, based in Observatory, recently celebrated its success as the most profitable kiosk, area for area, at Cavendish Square in Claremont.

The biltong barrow at Cavendish’s main entrance beat more than 200 shops in the upmarket shopping mall.

Andrew Billington, general manager of Joubert and Monty’s says there may be a lot of competition, but there’s enough demand to go round.
