Drink Baotic – co-founded by graduate Isatou Njai, produces Baotic, a dairy-free, high-fibre breakfast drink made from the super fruit, baobab.
The fruit is sourced from the baobab tree and its extract forms a traditional Gambian drink used in celebrations and medicinally. Drink Baotic commits a minimum of 10% profit to support community development across Africa and sources baobab through a charity supply chain that benefits local community harvesters throughout different countries and regions of Africa.
Since 2008 the team have led community development projects in The Gambia, in both Education & Health. And have supported rural schools, village development committees and entrepreneurial female co-operatives to develop agricultural gardens to improve income, health and nutrition.
The company has received funding from various sources, including Royal Society of Edinburgh, Santander Universities, Scottish Edge Wildcard.
