Once the meat is dried and you have yummy biltong, you may find it a challenge to slice the meat without cutting yourself. The simplest way to cut your Biltong is by using a very sharp butcher’s knife. This works well but it is certainly not the easiest or the most convenient way and is very hazardous! South Africa is well known for being an extremely innovative nation and it is no wonder that a large variety of Biltong cutters and slicers have been produced and are sold to the market.

Here at CaterWize we have an electric biltong slicer which weights 14kg and slices at a speed of 1440rpm. Most butchers in South Africa make use of an electric Biltong slicer to manage the demand of biltong sold per day. This slicer works on the same principle as the old fashioned string bean slicer, however, it is of course much bigger, heavier and has a motor attached.

South Africans cannot resist a good piece of biltong; so why not dry out your own biltong and sell in your community. Purchase a biltong slicer, package and distribute in your neighbourhood. Many small butchers today started with a product out of their garage and today run chains stores, this could be you.
