Owners of North East protein snack firm Oatein, John Paul Gardner and Andy Dixon made their pitch on the latest episode of the BBC show.
The duo, who met in the boxing ring, set up the Whitley Bay-based firm in 2016. Their mission was to break into the healthy snack market, producing a growing range of protein-fuelled snacks. The firm began by producing its flagship flapjack, which combines healthy, slow energy release protein and oats. Since then, they have created a wide range of products including brownies, protein bars, cookies and peanut butter in a variety of flavours which provides consumers with the health benefits of complex carbs, fibre, and additional protein. Since their launch, Oatein has sold more than 2.5m bars, flapjacks, and cookies in around 60 countries worldwide – with exports accounting for a phenomenal 90% of turnover.
The objective of entering the den was to tap into the potential of the rapidly expanding UK healthy eating market. The Geordie duo’s product was an instant hit with the much-feared dragons, resulting in the pair receiving three offers of investment. Making one of the quickest decisions seen in the den, the pair agreed to partner with Peter Jones, in a five-figure deal, giving the dragon 20% of the business for £50,000.
Managing Director at Complete One, Glen Lowes applauded the pitch and deal that the duo won, ‘It’s always great to see people who are following their passion, achieving their goals,’ stated the business owner.
