’57 is the pioneer bean to bar chocolate business in Ghana defined by creativity  and luxury. This venture uses resources grown within the country to create delicious, whimsical treats. ’57 hones in on Ghana’s Independence Day spirit and challenges the status quo that premium chocolate can only be made in Europe.

 At ’57 we take dried cocoa beans and process them into luxurious chocolate and confections. Using our creative skills and imagination, we make products that are a reflection and celebration of Ghanaian art and culture. 

Our mission is to revive the 1957 “can do spirit” by adding value to the cocoa bean and cocoa farmer— on a local scale. Our passion is to inspire the people of Ghana, especially the youth to not be satisfied at merely selling and trading the country’s natural resources or other items in their “natural” state, but to use their minds and creative geniuses to transform these resources and items by creating and developing made in Ghana products of premium value. 

 '57 is about patriotism and empowering the youth to create something of their own. We aspire to bring manufacturing back to Ghana.

Pricing for outside tastings events (held outside of '57's residence) are 70 cedis per person.  For children, ages twelve and below the cost is 40 cedis. For parties below the minimum number of participants (6 people) will be charged this equivalent. The duration of the session is one hour and thirty minutes.
