The Search for Authentic South African Style Biltong

David Libesman’s father, Michael, started his career as a butcher 60 years ago. As the son of a South African butcher, he enjoyed a lot of great Biltong over the years. After David arrived in the USA in 1998, he searched high and low for Boerewors and Biltong with the taste and texture that he grew up with. Unsatisfied, he decided to dig up old family recipes and techniques for making these traditional delightful foods and do it himself. 

After making a few batches of Boerewors and Biltong for himself, David began to share the treat with friends and neighbors. To his surprise, people began to request orders for their friends, parties, or for themselves. The overwhelming demand led to the creation of Joburg™ Kosher Foods, LLC. The company’s mission is to be the first Kosher food manufacturer to make high quality, authentic South African Boerewors and Biltong widely available in retail shops and foodservice channels throughout the USA.
