Following a shared passion for health and fitness, husband and wife Alan (CEO) and Juliet Barratt (CMO), founded sports nutrition start-up, Grenade, during the last recession.
After launching in 2010 with just £27 in the bank, Grenade was sold for £72m to Lion Capital in 2017 and since then has continued to grow strongly.
It now has over 50 staff, and retails in more than 80 countries around the world. Grenade is now the market-leading sports performance and active nutrition brand, incorporating a wide range of innovative, high-protein and low-sugar products.
Grenade has been named as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies and was featured in The Sunday Times’ Fast Track Top 100 in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
This is the Trailer for episode #125 which will be released at midnight on May 1st and features Grenade Co-Founder Juliet Barratt being interviewed by podcast host of Screw it, Just Do it - Alex Chisnall.
Interviews like this are the reason I got into podcasting in the first place. Juliet and Grenade's entrepreneurial journey are the epitome of the Screw it, Just Do it attitude that I want to showcase every week on the show.
After stepping away from day-to-day duties on January 1st, Juliet is now helping with the education and training of entrepreneurs through working with Richard Branson's Virgin Unite organisation and the Prince's Trust too.
