Premium beef supplier The Yorkshire Wagyu Company is making its first foray into the charcuterie marketplace with a range of biltong.

Biltong Slices, Paleo Biltong Slices, Biltong Bites and Biltong Sticks are being sold via the Driffield-based business’s website at an rsp of £4.95 including delivery as it seeks to tap into demand for healthy high protein snacks.

The products are made from ‘prime cuts of grass-fed Yorkshire Wagyu that are seasoned with a home-produced dry spice mix and dried in a UV cabinet’.

“We’re always looking to innovate and bring new products to the market and we want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to experience the unique taste of Wagyu,” said co-founder, farmer Jonathan Shepherd. “This biltong brings something different to the snacking market because it is made from Wagyu that have grazed in the Yorkshire Wolds. Add to that the high protein and low carbohydrate content, and you can see why it is a popular choice of snack with sportsmen and those following the paleo diet.”
