The canned version of the South African favourite chicken feet or ‘walkie-talkies’ is flying off African retailer shelves.
Lester Kiewit spoke to Ditsie Moagi, the sales executive at Tin Stuf about a chicken feet canning company breaking continental waters. .
The Limpopo-based company - founded in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown - recently signed a three-year contract to supply giant retailer Shoprite with canned chicken feet.
Moagi said the company had been receiving a lot of interest from southern African countries.
Botswana, he said, was the biggest buyer. He added that there was also a high demand for the product from Namibia, Zimbabwe and Lesotho. The company distributed approximately 300,000 cans a month
The product caters to people who are curious to taste chicken feet straight out of the can as opposed to how they are normally prepared.
