Our Story

Tong Jerky started back in 2010 with Tom & some friends from college. They travelled extensively looking for the best meat product to eat, which is how they discovered biltong, a traditional South African cured meat snack similar to beef jerky.


In 2016, Tom was inspired to bring his own biltong inspired beef jerky to the masses. He did this by combining the best features of biltong with traditional American beef jerky. This led to years of research and experimenting with various techniques and flavors in order to manufacture the finest product possible.


In 2018 he finalized what he considered to be the perfect twist to this American classic. The result is an exemplary combination of taste and texture, coupled with a blend of spices that have been 30 years in the making.


Tong’s mission is to deliver a high quality soft and flavorful steak jerky for everyone to enjoy.
