Peaceful Fruits

peaceful fruitsEvan Delahanty wants the Sharks to bite on Peaceful Fruits, his fruit snacks with a social conscience, in Shark Tank episode 816. The snack's main ingredient is wild-harvested açaí berries – a food he discovered while working as a Peace Corps Community Economic Development Specialist in the Amazon rainforest. Now, he makes the snacks in Akron, Ohio where he employs people with disabilities from the community.

He launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in August, 2016 where he raised $22,848 to get the product on the floor at Expo East, a HUGE natural products food show that took place in September 2016 in Baltimore, MD. It cost $10,000 to get a booth at the show, not to mention the cost of providing product samples, literature, travel etc.

Peaceful Fruits come in two flavors: Wild Acai + Pineapple and Wild Acai + Apple. The primary ingredient, the açaí berry, is harvested wild by local people of the Amazon Rainforest. This provides Delahanty with a sustainable source for ingredients and gives indigenous people in the rainforest a way to earn income while preserving their way of life. As the company philosophy says: “snacks made the right way, from the right stuff.”

A 12 pack of snacks costs about 14 bucks. Each packet contains a fruit strip with over 25 açaí berries in each strip. There's no sugar, preservatives, or any other crap in each strip – just fruit. Obviously, Delahanty needs a Shark's help getting into mass retail; he probably needs capital for growth, too. Will a Shark bite on these berries?

Peaceful Fruits Shark Tank Recap

Evan will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Peaceful Fruits will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
