Kimberly and Priscilla Addison are two Ghanaian sisters who have built their own cocoa processing company called 57 Chocolate that produces tons of chocolates all made by hand.
According to a short documentary sighted by Legit.ng on DW.com, the 57 Chocolate sisters had been living abroad until 2014 when they decided to return to Ghana and rather help the country.
In 2016, the Addisons started 57 chocolate and only four years on, the company is able to process 1 ton of cocoa to produce 1,000 handmade chocolates on a weekly basis.
Demand on their products is so high that they are able to export to Asia, America, Europe and other parts of Africa.
According to the biological sisters, there are great plans to grow the business massively, start using high-tech machines and employ many more Ghanaians into the business.
"Unfortunately, there is unemployment and chocolate can be a great way to create jobs for the youth so that we keep them on the continent, keep them working and show them that there is value in adding value to the cocoa bean, here in Ghana," one of the sisters said in an interview.
