Find out out Baggie's and how we started out.
Welcome to Baggie's, my name is Ella. My partner Mark and I started Baggie's in 2017, shortly after we arrived in Singapore. Baggie's came about because we couldn't get quality biltong in Singapore, something we used to enjoy a lot when we were living in London. We decided to make our own batch of biltong, and it turned out great! From there we quickly we went from our small first batch, to making for friends on the island. Due to the reception our biltong received, we opened our shop in the Fortune Centre, less than 6 months later.
As you will likely know, biltong is a cured meat delicacy originating from South Africa, where Mark is from. We have since expanded into fresh meats a produce speciality sausages, boerewors, another South African favourite, as well as procuring and producing meats for everyday cooking, with a focus on quality and value. Fast forward to today, and we have increased our handmade cured meats to include droewors, chilli sticks, cabanossi, and we have a large range of fresh meats available for purchase.
Up until the moment we tried our first batch of biltong, we weren't planning on starting our own F&B. But here we are, and we truly love what we do. We have shaped Baggie's based on the things that really motivate us, as well as our own personal values. Baggie's focusses heavily on the following:
Carefully produced, to delight our customers
We respond quick, fix fast, and treat our customer like our friends
Tried and tested meats, with a balance on good quality and great value
To minimise waste, whilst ensuring fresh produce when our customers come to cook
Paper and biodegradable packaging where possible, minimal plastic use, with a lofty dream of zero plastics in our future
To delight our customers with great quality produce at great value, whilst providing a perfect customer experience from start to finish.
To be the best damn deli that anyone has ever been to! We want to be the place to go for delicious and unique produce, from cured meats, to fresh meats, to delicious condiments and wines.
At the root of everything we do, we always consider our customer's satisfaction at the number one priority.
