Growing up in South Africa, Damian experienced the robust and diverse flavours of the regional cuisine. We strive to marry innovation with our heritage and traditions and are pleased to recreate those flavours in our version of two popular South African favourites — Biltong and Boerewors.
For Damian and our South African customers, Biltong and Boerewors are true ‘tastes of home.’ For our other customers, it’s a chance to experience these well-known South African specialties first-hand — and perhaps gain a new favourite.
Biltong is a traditional South African protein snack. It is cut from whole muscle and is seasoned with a blend of fresh spices. Unlike jerky, this product is not smoked but air-dried to give it its unique flavour.
Biltong, by Florence Meats, is made with premium Ontario Beef and our own combination of pure spices. It is a healthy, high protein snack, perfect for low carb and paleo lifestyles.
Although there are many variations, we, at Florence Meats have been using the same recipe that Mario Goriup made at his shop in Cyrildene, Johannesburg, South Africa since the early 1960’s. All our boerewors sausages are made from the finest ingredients. We blend our own spices and add only lean meat to make this our most famous signature sausage. Although beef is the most popular, we also make this sausage with chicken.
Pickled & Brined
Our Corned Beef, Pickled Brisket, Pickled Tongues and Gammon Hams naturally smoked are all made the old fashioned way. Pickled fish, made with stock fish, is also available. For more information, contact us.
