Melbourne Jerky starts from preparing the beef in a slicer which creates a consistent thickness.
We then marinate it for a minimum of 12 hours to ensure maximum flavour.
Finally, we cut it to a delicious bite size for perfect snacking.
Melbourne Jerky started off as a hobby in 2016 making jerky for family and friends. After getting such positive feedback, it prompted the idea of making this more than a hobby and brought us to where we are today. Like many others, Covid held us up a bit but we are now up and running and ready to go.
We use 100% Australian beef in our Jerky snacks. Each cut has been trimmed of any fat or sinew to ensure our end product is 100% goodness!
