Chosan World Jollof Rice Day Drink

Happy World Jollof Rice Day! Chosan is an independent producer of a range of 100% natural, organic drinks bursting with the flavours of hibiscus and superfruit, baobab. Here at Chosan, we are big fans of West Africa’s most famous dish. Our own name ‘Chosan’ means cultural heritage in Wolof, the language that the very name jollof rice is derived from. There is much debate about the origins of jollof rice and as the name comes from the Senegambia region we heartily stake our claim!
