The setting suggests a relaxed, al fresco dining experience, possibly a barbecue or picnic, with the focus on the rustic, flavourful snack.

What is Drywors?

Drywors, also known as “Droë Wors” meaning ‘dried sausage’, is a cherished snack food hailing from Southern Africa, now proudly made and approved right here in the UK.

We’re committed to the preservation of traditional recipes and methods. Our Drywors is meticulously prepared based on the iconic boerewors, a farm-style sausage revered for its distinct coriander-seed spice. This beloved flavour profile forms the backbone of our Drywors, lending it a taste that is both unique and satisfying.

The sausages are then air-dried in custom-designed drying rooms. This careful process allows for the intensification of flavours and the development of a texture that is crispy yet tender. The result is a delicious, protein-rich snack that is as tasty as it is nutritious.
