Zaare Smoothie bar is a Bolgatanga based social enterprise that provides a diverse line of juices, smoothies, coffee, tea and small food products (toasties) to customers in its targeted market. The mission is to provide customers with an expansive number of quality and freshly made juices, smoothies, hot coffee and small food products that are affordable and healthy. This project contributes to the vision of the YHFG in many ways. First of all, the smoothiebar employs local young people. The employees are given the opportunity to develop their professional skills and have a decent income. In addition, all raw materials of food and beverages are purchased from local marginalized farmers and suppliers. This contributes to improve livelihood for the local farmers while generating income to finance youth empowerment activities. Lastly, the Smoothie bar functions as a meeting place for Ghanaian and western people. The healthy benefits and tastes of the juices form the core of the bar’s services.
