Juices and sodas from the waste product (pulp!) of the cocoa fruit 🧃

Kumasi Drinks

The idea for Kumasi originated when Lars Gierveld and Jochem Pinxteren made a documentary about the cocoa industry in West Africa. Together with a number of Ghanaian farmers, this gave rise to the idea for their own sustainable company; a drink made from the juice of the cocoa fruit.

Normally that juice is thrown away. A shame, because it is surprisingly fresh and fruity: it tastes a bit like lychee and mango. By making a product and selling it, a cocoa farmer can increase his income.

That makes sense, on paper. But to really get it all off the ground, Kumasi was founded in 2019. With the aim that as many cocoa farmers as possible can earn an extra income by selling the juice. In the first trials, the farmers earned at least 15% extra income on top of their cocoa price. This is only possible if it does not stop at a sympathetic idea, but if we now also really work professionally.

Kumasi has therefore put together a small but effective team and found serious partners who are willing and able to make a difference.
