The global speaker bureau
Levi Roots is the creator of 'Reggae Reggae Sauce' and one of the recent success stories from the BBC Entrepreneur programme, Dragon's Den. His late entry into the culinary field came because of commitments to music. Levi was enjoying himself touring around the world, performing with icons such as James Brown, Dennis Brown, Michael Rose and Black Uhuru. He was nominated for a MOBO award in 1998 for his Free Your Mind album. He sang Happy Birthday to Nelson Mandela when the South African icon visited Brixton and used to play football with Bob Marley every Sunday in Battersea Park!
"Levi's story is one of the most heart-warming business success stories to date"
Levi Roots wowed the dragons with his Reggae-Reggae sauce, taken from his Jamaican grandmother's recipe, with his unique 'all singing' marketing campaign and managed to secure an investment. He made the big time from producing his Reggae Reggae Sauce that won an exclusive contract in 2007 and was soon stocked in Sainsbury's stores across Britain becoming the chain's fastest ever selling product. Levi also released a new album and continues to feature regularly as a guest chef on cookery shows in addition to touring the country as a motivational speaker, encouraging young people to follow in his footsteps.
