Help Support a promising idea to fruition
Hello, my name is Gertrude Adzo Borklo Chief Executive Officer of Popsicles Ghana a leading dessert brand in the event space in Ghana.
As an ex-banker who lost her job, I needed to be creative and start a brand that stands out and brings in income for my survival and that of my child. And here we are even though it has not been an easy journey being an entrepreneur; I have not regretted it either.
We produce desserts such as popsicles, ice cream, pancakes, popcorn, waffles, smoothie, cocktails and juices, local bar setups and many more.
Our services include Events and occasions, we are live on Glovo and on all social media handles. Our service coverage is nationwide and we are always available to travel.
Popsicles Ghana remains a healthy option for desserts in Ghana as we take into consideration clients’ preferences of taste, health and work towards achieving that.
Client segmentation such as people who want desserts but low sugar, no sugar, lactose intolerant, vegetarians are all segmentations we consider when producing to meet their needs.
We stand out in the market because of all the above and have been nominated for the Ghana Event Industry Awards for two years in a role, thus the 2020 and 2021 event years.
We have served over seven thousand (7000) Ghanaians with our treats.
We source our fruits and vegetables from local farmers in Somanya, Anfoega, and Agbozume. We have been able to contribute to the value chain of agricultural products in Ghana and have absorbed a portion of fruits and vegetables that were usually left to rot.
As part of our corporate social responsibility and contributing to a reduction in unemployment,
Our company has trained over five hundred women and girls in ice cream production. Free training in Accra, Ho, Wudoaba, Hohoe and so on.
I am starting this fundraiser so that I can purchase equipment to support and expand my business. Additionally, the ability to purchase this equipment will allow me some release from unemployment thoughts, and seek financial stability, while doing work that is extremely meaningful to me.
