Akua Obenewaa Donkor makes chocolates from organic locally sourced cocoa in Ghana's capital, Accra.
We make chocolate from the cocoa liquor; we don't have enough machines to start processing chocolate from the cocoa beans.
So when we come we process it and then we make chocolate bars and filled chocolate, when I talk about filled chocolate, they are the tiny ones that has sometimes have caramel, peanut, cornflakes in them.
So we make both the bars and the filled chocolate," said Akua.
Akua says Ghana is capable of adding value to its cocoa and in turn reap more benefits instead.
After processing the chocolate liquor, she adds flavours and ingredients like nuts and other ingredients to produce a variety of bars.
The entrepreneur who is also a communication design graduate says her products don't have artificial additives and preservatives usually found in chocolates on the market. "
