Nkpouto Edem Ekong is from Ibiono Ibom local government area of Akwa Ibom State. He is a graduate of Computer Science and the CEO of Chopcee Foods. Chopcee Foods aims to use natural sweeteners instead of refined sugar in producing all food powders.

He ventured into this line of business in 2018. He affirms that the business is lucrative and one can make money from it. According to him, “We make much money especially now that people are running away from refined sweeteners as the health implications worsen. The more they use our products, the more they buy because of the natural sweeteners”.

Nkpouto started his business with a startup capital of twenty-five thousand naira (N25,000).

The high point recorded so far in this business is his ability to purchase grinding machines, sealing machines, other grinders, ovens, and dehydrators. The purchase of these machines has made production easy for him and his team.

The low point of the business is the inability to meet up with the high demand for its products. He has never thought about giving up in the face of challenges.

Nkpouto does not work alone, he employs people to work with him and his business is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission.

Policymakers and investors can assist him with mentorship and grants.
