Dirtea Announces Global Partnership With Bear Grylls

DIRTEA, the market-leading functional mushroom brand has partnered with Global adventurer and award-winning television presenter Bear Grylls as an investor and global ambassador. 

DIRTEA, the UK’s leading functional mushroom brand has announced Bear Grylls, the globally recognised face of adventure and renowned survival expert as an investor and ambassador.

In another milestone moment for DIRTEA, this deal is one of Bear’s most significant personal investments and is a powerful endorsement of the brand, affirming Bear’s belief in the DIRTEA team, product, and vision.

Bear’s firsthand, transformative experience using DIRTEA products has been the driving force behind the partnership. Passionate about bringing people closer to nature and educating them on the earth’s most effective remedies, DIRTEA’s core brand values perfectly align with Bear’s mission to bring vitality and positive energy to millions around the world.

Bear says “DIRTEA has had a profound impact on my life, helping fortify my energy levels, aid recovery times, and enhance physical performance. I’m so proud to join the DIRTEA family as an investor and partner, standing shoulder to shoulder to build upon the powerful work already achieved.  Together our goal is to be an unstoppable force for good, and to share the transformative, research-based power of functional mushrooms, to enhance our health and life.”

“Bear is an inspiration; his relentless passion to unleash adventure and his never-give-up attitude brings out the best in everyone” continues Simon Salter, Co-Founder of DIRTEA. “Bear is synonymous with survival and nature, and as an adventurer who relies on natural solutions in extreme conditions, there’s no one better to empower people to realise the power of one of nature’s most sacred ingredients, functional mushrooms.”

“Since our launch in 2021, DIRTEA has been dedicated to improving people’s health through the functional power of mushrooms. DIRTEA is now established as the market leader and an authority on functional mushrooms, driving education and setting high standards for product quality. With Bear onboard, we’re truly excited about what the future holds, inspiring health-conscious consumers worldwide to embrace the huge number of benefits offered by the DIRTEA range and empowering people to feel good and live better” continues Andrew Salter, Co-Founder of DIRTEA.

To make the agreement official, celebrate their friendship and mark the start of an exciting adventure together, Bear and DIRTEA Founders, Andrew and Simon Salter captured a skydive in Switzerland earlier this year symbolising the adventurous spirit and bold vision driving this collaboration.

Looking forward to growing his investment portfolio in the wellness space, Bear is intent on only working with brands he truly believes in, and those committed to helping people everywhere to be as well, mentally and physically, as they can be, and as Bear aims to be and is, every day.

Bear’s investment and partnership marks another significant moment for DIRTEA, solidifying their status as the no.1 functional mushroom and wellness brand in the UK, and coinciding with the appointment of Grant Coetzee, former COO at Huel as CEO, as well as the game-changing introduction of DIRTEA Gummies in May 2024. – ENDS-
