Season 2 Episode #4:
Motty Hershkowitz, Co-Founder and CEO of The Grub Company, started a career in Technology working at a Fortune 50 company.
After spending time in South Africa and falling hard for biltong, a form of dried, cured meat that originated in Southern African countries, he found there to be a lack of good quality biltong on this side of the Atlantic.
Through his love of food, he was able to recreate authentic biltong, which ultimately led him to co-found The Grub Company – where his biltong was the hottest product at KosherFest this year.
