“We're thrilled to be back in the Den,” says Corin Mullins, CEO and Ernst and Young Award winner, “It has been five years since we first appeared on Dragon’s Den. With Holy Crap now being sold on US Amazon and soon internationally we felt we needed to attract major league production and marketing expertise and the Den was our first stop."
“We know the cereal works everywhere after being sent to the International Space Station on Expedition 35 with Commander Hatfield. With sales in the EU and Africa Corin and I felt that we needed to give the Dragons and us a second chance opportunity to take this success story to the next stage of growth,” says co-founder Brian Mullins.
