'57 Chocolate is the pioneer bean to bar chocolate company in Ghana. Ghana attained independence in 1957, which started a domino effect, inspiring others to do the same. We channel Ghana’s Independence Day spirit by manufacturing world class finished goods with the country's natural resources, and aim to inspire others to do the same.

Since 2016, we’ve taken dried cocoa beans and processed them into luxurious chocolate and confections. We make products that celebrate and reflect African art and culture. 

'57 is about patriotism and sparking the entrepreneurial spirit among the youth in Ghana. We want to encourage people to transform natural resources and manufacture high-quality products.

Kimberly fell in love with the possibility of making chocolate when she went on a factory tour in Switzerland. Disheartened by Ghana's lack of value addition to cocoa,  Kim took up the challenge of learning to make chocolate, right at home!
