What is Reggae Reggae Sauce?

Reggae Reggae Sauce is a jerk barbeque sauce that is an alternative to tomato sauce and hot pepper sauce that negates the unwanted qualities of both; it is a sauce that provides multiple flavors all at once without being too spicy.

Levi told the Dragons that the recipe for the sauce belonged to his grandmother, a claim which turned out to be untrue later. The sauce’s recipe allegedly belongs to Tony Bailey who used to run a jerk chicken stall with Levi for about 15 years.

Hence, it would be safe to say the sauce is quite tasty but its origins also unfortunately are quite saucy!

Who Is The Founder Of Reggae Reggae Sauce?

Keith Valentine Graham, popularly known as Levi Roots is a British-Jamaican reggae musician, television personality, celebrity, and author who is the founder of the company Reggae Reggae Sauce.

He sold 4000 bottles of the Reggae Reggae Sauce at the Notting Hill Carnival in 2006. It was at this point, he decided to take his sauce to The Dragon’s Den. He also had a royalty agreement for sales of his sauce with a meat company at that point.

The musician has now made millions from his enterprise and has made his mark in the FMCG industry and he has also been recognized as a chef.

Did Reggae Reggae Sauce Get A Deal On Dragon’s Den?

Levi’s pitch at The Dragon’s Den kicked off with a melodious song that put a smile on the face of our ultra-serious Dragons! Levi then quickly got the Dragons through the details of his product and also revealed that he had a humongous order amounting to £16 Million from a meat company based in Yorkshire which left the Dragons in awe!

This too-good-to-be-true deal’s terms were examined by Dragon Theo Paphitis and it turned out that Levi had mistakenly added a few extra zeros at the end of the deal. This turned out to be a deal breaker for three of the Dragons. Only Richard Farleigh and Peter Jones seemed interested in this deal which they insisted on calling a ‘gamble’.

The original investment proposal put forth by Levi was £50,000 in exchange for a 20% stake in his company but Richard and Peter wanted to have their ‘gamble’ at half the price. Levi finalized this deal to give his company a head start by taking in both the Dragons.

What Happened to Reggae Reggae Sauce After Dragon’s Den?

The revenue of the company at the time of the pitch was about £4,000 per annum.

Having been sold for about fifteen years, this sales figure seemed to be pathetically below average but Levi revealed that he had been running operations from his home kitchen so that provided the logical reason for such low sales.

The company clocked revenue of more than a whopping £3 Million in the year following its Dragon’s Den appearance.

As of today, the company is estimated to be worth more than £30 Million making it one of the most successful products to have ever appeared on The Dragon’s Den. Peter Jones remains a shareholder and an active promoter of the product.

It will be more than safe to say that the ‘gamble’ of both the Dragons paid off quite well and Reggae Reggae Sauce went on to capture a sizeable market share in a space dominated by biggies like Heinz.
