The National Enterprise Challenge in partnership with Ryman is massively excited to announce that we are partnering with sports nutrition brand ‘Grenade‘, who are setting our KS4 challenge, to design a healthy alternative to a chocolate bar aimed at young people.
Grenade’s ethos is very much aligned to our own and is to simply ‘inspire people to get more out of life!’
The challenge will be heavily centred around health and well-being and we can’t wait to start delivering it to students across the UK.
Grenade CEO, Alan Barratt said: “We were so inspired by what we saw in The National Enterprise Challenge we thought it would be good to see what young people can do for our brand. We have a lot of entrepreneurs in the country and students are just the right age to start thinking about healthy eating and nutrition, so we’re really excited to be launching the ‘Grenade Challenge’ in as part of The National Enterprise Challenge. We want to see what the challenge participants can design, and if we get an idea we like we’ll go ahead and take it to UK retail. And we sell about a million bars a week… so that’s a pretty big deal!”
Co-Founder of The National Enterprise Challenge, Ben Dyer commented: “We’re incredibly proud to be partnering with Grenade on such a topical and important subject as health and nutrition. We’re passionate about inspiring young people to be the best they can be and that extends well beyond the classroom. We can’t wait to get started and see what the young people of the UK come up with in the KS4 Grenade Challenge”.
The National Enterprise Challenge re-starts in September for the 2019/20 academic year. Please get in touch with our engagement team to be involved in this inspiring initiative.
