The Chief's Story
Growing up in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, biltong has always been a big part of the life of Founder and Chief, Dylan Rogers.
From stopping to buy biltong at every passing farm store on childhood holidays, to filling up his boot on road trips with biltong and beer; he made sure that he was always in arm's reach of quality biltong.
A former professional rugby player in Italy, South Africa, Ireland and Hong Kong, The Chief was in constant need of a good supply of nutrition and protein to help get him through the rigorous training schedules. This led him to making his own biltong, it also helped that it went down a treat with the post-match refreshments.
Biltong has brought his friends and family together around the fire, it has accompanied him to sport events, fuelled him and his teammates broken bodies and been enjoyed in the pub after matches. The Chief sees biltong as a way of life.
Working together with a butcher with over 50 years of biltong making experience, in 2015 The Chief realised his dream of having his own biltong company by launching Biltong Chief. A quality, high protein biltong that can be enjoyed by all. More than just a snack!
