Our Story

American skin was birthed out of a meat packing company by Wesley Blake Sr. and Anthony Blake in the 1930’s formerly known as Wanet’s Sausage. In 1981 through the vision of Neil Blake, pork rinds became the main focus of American Skin. In 1998 Wes Blake III and Les Edwards purchased the business along with Grandad’s Real Bacon Rinds in Atlanta Ga. andmoved both businesses to Burgaw, NC. This heritage of quality products and southern service has made American Skin a Nation Leading Manufacturer of pork rinds and Cracklings in the Meat Snack Industry.
