Tin Stuf (Pty) Ltd is a family business that was founded in 2017. The Tzaneen based canning factory was initially commissioned as a pilot facility, to be used as a R&D plant for the development of the company's flagship product - a 400g canned chicken feet & necks in a delicious, rich broth.
According to 26 year-old co-founder Eiren Drake, the inspiration behind the development of this product came from his up-bringing on a farm in Limpopo Province, where he was introduced to the widely loved and consumed dish of chicken feet as a young child - He later developed an affinity for the dish, which is still one of his favourite meals today. Drake says, this evoked an interest for him, in the dominant foods, staple diets and different preparation methods used by different cultures in South Africa.
Tin Stuf’s range of canned chicken feet and necks meets an unmet demand in the market for access to good quality, affordable protein. We eliminate the need for access to electricity to store the frozen form and offer the added value of convenience to this widely loved and consumed traditional dish.
The company was founded to be a
responsive market player that aligns its product development with the tastes, needs and
aspirations of its market.
