Our Story 

Rod and Ros Bates, owners and co-founders of Karutz Smallgoods introduced their favourite German style smallgoods recipes to Western Australia in 2005 starting with award winning German mettwurst from The Barossa Valley region in South Australia. Since then Karutz Smallgoods has expanded its range of artisan meats into jerky, biltong, pâté and more recently launched a unique new brand: Artisan Game Specialists, an exciting range of artisan jerky, biltong and smallgoods made from Australian game meats including kangaroo, crocodile & emu.

Originally starting in wholesale Karutz Smallgoods soon after began selling at local and regional food festivals including Perth Royal Show, Perth Good Food & Wine, Mandurah Crab Festival, Dowerin Field Day and in 2009 started trading from the iconic Fremantle Markets where they still operate today.  

Karutz Smallgoods is excited to offer Australia’s finest artisan air-dried and cured meats now delivered to your door with express shipping Australia wide. We provide jerky, biltong, mettwurst, pepperoni, salami and Artisan Game smallgoods.
