Togo: Local startup New Road Company reveals its made in Togo chocolate drink, Choco Noor

(Togo First) - Last week, Togolese startup New Road Company revealed its chocolate drink, Choco Noor.

According to the firm’s Managing Director, Adoyi A. Bimon-Isso, the drink’s production aligns with Togo’s national development plan (PND 2018-2022), which is to make Made in Togo products. 

Indeed, the startup uses locally grown cocoa to make the beverage. The latter, according to executives of New Road Company, meets all standards set by the Togolese Institute for Agricultural Research (ITRA) and the National Hygiene Institute (INH).

This was confirmed by Martin Aziato, Head of Food Technology at ITRA, and Dikeni Kondi Ousmane from INH.

Aziato on the same occasion deplored the low level of cocoa processing despite the beans being produced in quantity and quality across the African continent. He therefore lauded New Road Company’s initiative and urged Togolese to follow its example.
