Just in time for Black History Month 2022, on this 25th episode of Z Talks, we speak with this black woman-owned benefit corporation founded in 2018. After a life-changing trip to Ghana, she learned more about the Cocoa industry and what was going on behind the scenes. She wanted to see how she could help drive more economic success for the people in Ghana. This experience led her to leverage her business and social activist background to found her company.
She certainly has a lot of things to share with us. Press play above ^^ to listen.
