More about Chosan

Chosan is an African inspired brand of naturally healthy food products made from exotic fruits and plants, namely baobab and hibiscus. We’re an independent spirit, all about capturing that perfect taste of natural flavours and introducing people to something novel and exciting.

Hibiscus is the signature ingredient in our sorbets, and baobab, in our jams and spreads. Hibiscus makes a refreshing drink popular all over the world, while baobab has immunity enhancing properties and is rich in nutrients. Made with all-natural ingredients, our products are free from additives and preservatives.

Along with the natural goodness of our products, there is also an ethical element to our brand. We donate a proportion of our profits to support women food producers in The Gambia improve their quality of living.
