Tech and Entertainment Venture Capital firm, Five Four Ventures, Makes First Investment in Food Space with Bellway
NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bellway, the natural fiber supplement brand, announced today its entrance into the market with a line of modern fiber products.
Bellway developed its line of products to meet the evolving needs of the consumer, offering a healthy digestion solution to achieve optimal wellness on a gut level. Delivering 18 percent of daily fiber needs, more than the current leading brands, Bellway is made with real fruit and no sugar or chemicals, using Organic Psyllium as the main ingredient – a natural soluble fiber and prebiotic that nourishes healthy bacteria in your gut – supporting improved immunity function, clearer skin and a better mood.
While innovating brands like Hello Fresh, Freshly and ALOHA Max Dresse Founder and CEO of Bellway became a pioneer of omnichannel marketing, he remarks, "I realized that about 95 percent of Americans weren't getting enough fiber and what was currently on the market wasn't anything I could get behind, so I partnered with a team of doctors, scientists, nutritionists and health & fitness experts to make fiber more accessible, clean and delicious than ever before."
Bellway, launching direct-to-consumer online, is currently in incubation with Five Four Ventures, a fund that spun out of the digital media arm of Lorne Michaels' global media company that produced SNL, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, 30 Rock, and more.
"We incubated Bellway because we believe healthy fiber supplements can greatly improve everyone's diet and lifestyle," said David Birnbaum, Managing Partner of Five Four Ventures. "The fiber supplement market is a multi-billion dollar opportunity, yet the products currently dominating it don't speak to today's consumers, who are concerned about ingredient quality and live a mobile first, digital life. With Bellway, we're bringing a new approach to the transformative power of fiber supplements to the market."
