Levi Roots - The Roots of Reggae Reggae Sauce

Levi Roots is perhaps best known for his appearance on the BBC's Dragons Den that sparked off his instant rise to fame and cemented him in both the cultural and culinary world. However Levi Roots is something of a jack of all trades and can confidently list musician, television personality, celebrity chef and businessman on his CV.

Most are aware of the delicious product Reggae Reggae Sauce and the catchy song that goes with it but what you might not know is that Levi Roots has a musical history that extends beyond that. Levi Roots was a friend to Bob Marley when he lived in the UK and even sang “Happy Birthday Mr President” for Nelson Mandela back in 1992!

Levi Roots manages to be both a successful businessmen and an all round charmer, proving that you don’t have to be cold hearted and ruthless to succeed in the business world. In 2006 Roots appeared on Dragons Den where his trademark sauce was invested in by Dragons Peter Jones and Richard Farleigh to the tune of £50,000. According to some sources (sorry) the business is now valued at a spectacular £30 million.

Along with the sauce, Roots has released a variety of ready meals and a cookbook that have both proved to be very successful. Roots takes pride in the fact that Reggae Reggae Sauce is made according to his Grandmother Nanna Miriam’s “secret recipe.”

Levi Roots is also an accomplished public speaker and provides expertise as well as the brand of humour and charm that made the public take to him instantly. He has spoken at such events as the South West of England Regional Development Agency conference in 2008 and the Isle of Man Junior Chamber of Commerce.
