Fighter Shots are UK made, all-natural functional remedies. Varieties include ginger, turmeric, collagen and manuka honey, aimed to provide a health boost, especially amid COVID-19 health concerns.
Customers love us for the punchy flavour and high-quality potent ingredients that perk them up and remind them daily of a healthy lifestyle. Initial customer feedback on our ginger shot suggests that it is one of the best tasting shots in the market.
Sustainably enabling people to boost immunity and vitality through natural ingredients are central to Fighter Shot’s vision.
The functional drinks market has the potential to grow by $180bn (11% CAGR) to $270bn from 2020-24 on the back of COVID-19. We believe we are well-positioned as a substitute to coffee and sugary drinks.
Anna founded Fighter Shots in 2019 at London Business School’s Incubator. Full scale production started end of 2019, with over 50k units sold by Q2 2020. Distrubution includes direct web sales, online marketplaces, cafés, gyms, and offices. Listings with the Health Store, Tree of Life and DDC are secured.
Simultaneously, we are developing sales in the UAE. Listing with noon.com is achieved and an initial conversation with a premium hotel is underway.
Investment will help to build digital marketing and sales capabilities to bring our product to many more customers.
