Blue Horizon portfolio company in German Shark Tank

Blue Horizon’s portfolio company Happy Ocean Foods appeared in the German version of Shark Tank and secured not only one but two shark investors with former Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg and former member of the German Bundestag Dagmar Wöhrl.

Julian Hallet and Robin Drummond successfully pitched their plant-based shrimps product to the sharks and two of them bit. Happy Ocean Foods was founded on the grounds that our seas are overfished and we continue to consume seafood in a very unsustainable manner. This needs to change and the biggest leverage the two founders identified was reinventing shrimps.

All the sharks were blown away by the quality of the product and all of them ended up offering a deal. The decision landed with Nico and Dagmar, and we at Blue Horizon are excited to work together with this team to further push the alternative seafood category with new innovative products.
