By Scenic Drive With Rian

Eiren Drake, an entrepreneur from Limpopo, made history after he produced the world's first tinned chicken feet and necks.

Drake, with his late grandfather, produced their first 400g canned product line through their business, Tin Stuff.

As a young boy, he spent a significant amount of time with his late grandfather’s employees.

It was then when he was first introduced to the widely loved and consumed dish of chicken feet, which very quickly became one of his favourite dishes.

Drake believes that it taught him a lot about local culture and food. According to him, the business idea provided a solution to the difficulties many families experience in getting good quality protein.

Drake spoke to Danny Painter about his innovation and helping families in need.
