Hi there. Thanks for checking out our Sweet Meat Jerky Kickstarter page!

If you love beef jerky, but want ALL the chemicals taken out and replaced with natural ingredients and unique flavors, then look no further. 

With your support, we can get Sweet Meat Jerky into the market and on store shelves near you! 

The money that we raise on Kickstarter will help us pay for materials that will go into our first official production run. 

This includes:

·      Environmentally friendly packaging.

·      Organic spices and sauces

·      Organic beef

Why Sweet Meat Jerky?

On the eve of our final year in college, we began questioning our purpose in the world. Having spent the previous four years studying Finance and Economics, we were scared that we would become trapped in corporate America (not that there is anything wrong with that). Entrepreneurs at heart, we knew we would not find happiness crunching numbers in a cubicle. Craving a change of pace, we began to search for inspiration.

That was 8 months ago. Since then, we have tirelessly re-engineered beef jerky to create an organic product that is delicious and healthy.

With the support of our family, friends, vendors, suppliers, and fellow entrepreneurs, we are finally ready to get it out there…but we could use some help. That is where YOU come in!

What makes Sweet Meat Jerky so incredibly amazing?

Our INGREDIENTS: No preservatives, no additives, nothing artificial. Our jerky is inspiringly simple and comes in distinct flavors hand crafted from real ingredients. You should always know what you are getting, and with Sweet Meat Jerky, you do.

Sweet Meat Jerky - Classic!

100% Organic spices, sugars, and seasonings!

Our FLAVORS: We are launching with 1 official flavor. We are calling it Sweet Meat Jerky Classic. A perfect blend between Soy and Teriyaki. Not too hot, not too sweet.

With enough financing we will be able to expand our product line though. We want to have a tribute flavor to the great state we’ve called home the last several years, which we’re calling: Tennessee Honey BBQ. A savory combination of southern honey and home-style barbeque sauce – this flavor is sure to please southerners and non-southerners alike!

We also plan to have a jerky with a bite! Hot and Spicy Citrus has plenty of kick for those with tougher taste buds.

PACKAGING: We have a responsibility to take care of our planet. The amount of plastic waste disposed of on a daily basis is unnecessary and we want to help. By using a biodegradable package, our product has a smaller environmental footprint than any of our competitors - and we can rest our heads at night knowing we are doing our part as a company to preserve our planet.

FAQ

  • At first we thought we could, but once we added tax, duty, and shipping charges up, it was going to cost over $100 to ship a package!!

    We are sorry about this, and hope that we will one day be able to get Sweet Meat Jerky in your country!

    Last updated:
  • At the moment, we do not have a turkey jerky flavor developed. BUT we have every intention of doing so as soon as possible! If you have any creative or unique flavor ideas of your own, leave us a comment and let us know! :)
