Megan Reamer and Scott Reamer, from Crested Butte, Colo., with Jackson’s Honest — a snack company that was inspired by their son’s rare illness.
Small independent consumer brands focused on delivering nutrient density in simple, convenient and approachable ways will have the opportunity to disrupt huge segments of the food chain and disintermediate the established brands whose businesses are optimized for profitability rather than innovation. These sets of companies, of which Jackson’s Honest is one, will reorient the food chain around nutrient density, bringing sustainability back to one of the largest and most important industries in the world.

Each week on “Shark Tank,” budding entrepreneurs have the opportunity to pitch their emerging business to six multi-millionaire and billionaire investors, known as sharks: Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks; Daymond John, fashion mogul and founder of FUBU; Kevin O’Leary, self-proclaimed Mr. Wonderful and founder of O’Leary Financial Group; Barbara Corcoran, real estate maven; Lori Greiner, queen of QVC; and Robert Herjavec, technology guru and founder/CEO of the Herjavec Group. Venture capitalist Chris Sacca is also slated to appear as a guest shark this season.
“Shark Tank,” which is based on “Dragons’ Den,” is produced by Mark Burnett and first debuted in 2009. To date, the sharks have invested more than $87 million in various companies after engaging in numerous bidding wars and shark fights. A new episode airs each Friday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
