What’s New?

A South African family of sports, food, and outdoor enthusiasts has taken over the business from their base in Auchterarder, and are excited to introduce an all new authentic, real protein-packed snack, that tastes like home.   

The secret to Up North Biltong’s new taste lies in the traditional South African recipe. Using locally sourced premium Angus beef, marinated in a blend of delightful spices, and air-dried to perfection, the result is an authentic taste that transports you to the heart of South African culture right here in the UK.  Exciting times lie ahead with new product ranges on the horizon.

Why “Up North”?

The name “Up North” is not just a location; it’s a commitment to sourcing the best ingredients right here “Up North” in the UK. The brand proudly taps into the rich heritage of Angus Beef, a globally recognised premium beef brand, bringing the original biltong taste from South Africa “Up North” to the heart of Scotland.

About Up North Biltong

The original journey of the brand began when 3 Scotland Rugby players came up with the idea to sell biltong as a fantastic pre- and post-training snack. It was their mission to further the understanding of what biltong is and the benefits it provides. The new owners endorsed their same vision. After emigrating to the UK around 18 months ago, Roger, a passionate foody and outdoor enthusiast, and his eldest son Bryce, a cricketer, found it challenging to find biltong in the UK that tasted like home. Together they decided to develop a nutritious and authentic meat snack, meticulously crafted from a cherished South African recipe passed down through family generations.  

Up North Biltong is a protein packed snack that champions your health.  The combined attributes of grass-fed premium Angus beef, maximum protein, gluten free, low carb, low sugar ingredients make it an optimum nutritional body fuel for all “on the go”, outdoor and high-performance enthusiasts.
