Being the boss of a giant liquor company that manufactures, imports and distributes both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages into the Ghanaian market; Mr. Isaac Tetteh, however is able to blend the demanding task of his Managing Director role with the challenges that come with philanthropy.
For the past 13 years, Mr. Tetteh, affectionately called ‘Uncle ‘T’ has been instrumental in ameliorating the plights of many orphans in the SOS Village; the orphanage located in Tema Metropolis of the Greater Accra Region.
‘Uncle T’ derives pleasure from throwing party and above all making donations to the inmates of the SOS Village Orphanage especially during the Easter and New Year festivities, every year. It has been a ritual since 2013.
The initiative has enjoyed the support from his suppliers and foreign partners including south West Distillers, Parmalat South Africa and Britvic International.
In December last year, Uncle ‘T’ once again organized a big party for over 100 children within the Tema SOS Village, putting smiles on their faces again during the Christmas and New Year festivity.

Aside the party, he also presented 30 bags of rice, 30 cartons of assorted soft drinks and 5 cartons of Uncle ‘T Tomato paste to the inmates of the Village.
According to Uncle T, the only benefit he derives from his benefaction over the years has been profound ‘happiness’ not only for himself but his family as well as from his supporting partners.
“We eat with them, share jokes with them, watch them perform their own cultural dance and plays and above all a dancing competition just to put smiles on their faces. It makes me happy so I just have to say thanks to God for that”, Uncle T added.
In an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the celebration, ‘Uncle T’ urged all Ghanaians to be hard working and determined to achieve goals that will lead to the development of the nation. He said Ghanaians owe it a duty to develop our own nation because “our destiny lies in our own hands.”
The philanthropic Uncle T has expressed optimism about the growth of Ghanaian businesses this year. He said although the previous years has not been good for business due to of ‘dumsor’ problems, he is emphatic 2017 will be an auspicious year for businesses including his own company to boom. He hinted his company will start its own production locally to cut down importation of goods outside the country which has been the norm.
TT Brothers Limited has been in business since 1988 importing and distributing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages like Ethanol and Bottled spirits, Parmalat fruit juices & dairy products like pure joy and Parmalat Custards, Coca Cola products, Foot prints wines, Malt, Tango fruit juices and many more.
The company in 2016 through hard work and determination has managed to introduce some products into the market locally which is gradually making waves. Currently, it can now boast of 4 major brands namely Uncle T Energy drink, Uncle T Red Wine, Uncle T Sangria including Uncle T Malt. According to the Managing Director, the company, this year the company will be unleashing two other Uncle T products to add up to the latter. “We are going to have Uncle T non-alcoholic wine and then also we’re adding Uncle T chips and if God permits by the end of this year, we will come out with our own brand of fruit juice which we will be released into the market”. “So we’re working assiduously to add up more products unto Uncle T brands portfolio”.
Uncle T concluded by saying his company hopes to own its manufacturing outlets in the country in the future to handle every production locally from fruit juices to non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages by 2020 by God’s grace.
