19 Jul July 20, 2018 – Drink Entrepreneur Naima Atti, The Land Geek Mark Podolsky and B State Mark Samuel
NINI, meaning delicious in Kotokoli, is a drink on a mission: to make an African drink in the USA that fuels the body and the spirit and helps build a better world. Inspired by West African drink recipes featuring ingredients like hibiscus and lemongrass, NINI A Sip of Africa offers a taste from a continent rich in culture and history and gives back, with each purchase supporting women entrepreneurs in Togo, West Africa. NINI is the realization of Founder Naima Attis. Her lifelong dream was to create a drink that brings people together and build a business that is founded on a mission for change. Naima’s story begins as a little girl growing up in West Africa, where she would sell beverages alongside other traditional African foods outside her family home. After living in Libreville, Gabon, Togo, Ghana, Benin, and Nigeria, she and her family settled in New York City. Naima loved New York vibrant, energetic culture but found that a connection to Africa was missing. Naima decided to combine her love of crafting authentic juices with her desire to celebrate African culture, and NINI was born: healthy, flavorful beverages inspired by her homeland, handcrafted in her new home, New York.
