Chosan Supports World Jollof Rice Day 2016

By West Africa Cooks, 15 August, 2016

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! For the real dish nothing beats our national dishes Benechin/Chep Jen so we are quite happy for other West Africans to appropriate Jollof Rice.

We use authentic, time honoured recipes from The Gambia to create our non-alcoholic drinks. Our range of organic hibiscus drinks, inspired by Gambian wonjo, are the perfect match to drink alongside jollof rice. Made with healthy, 100% natural ingredients with no artificial additives, the drinks are available in three flavours - Pure Hibiscus, Hibiscus with Fiery Ginger, Hibiscus with Refreshing Mint.

Alongside the natural goodness of our drinks, Chosan also believes in contributing back and being an ethical company. Five pence from every bottle sold will go to African food producers to help improve their standard of living.
