Five more budding entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to the self-made multi-millionaires on Dragons’ Den, but where can you buy Fearne and Rosie reduced sugar jams?
Here’s everything you need to know about the pitches on Dragons’ Den on Thursday July 01 2021.
Dragons’ Den pitch: Fearne and Rosie reduced sugar jams
Schoolteacher, entrepreneur and mum Rachel Kettlewell pitches her low-sugar jams for children.
She tempts the Dragons’ taste buds as well as their pockets with Fearne and Rosie reduced sugar jams and no added sugar sauces.
Rachel thought up the idea while on maternity leave with her kids.
Rachel is hoping her company can expand and become a UK family brand – including cereals, and a healthier alternative to Muller Corner yoghurts.
She explains that with other leading brands of jam, there is unnecessary sugar which she has taken out of the product – around 40 per cent less.
Fearne and Rosie also sell honey and honey and chocolate spread.
Rachel’s husband Andrew owns Raydale Preserves.
Dragons’ Den Fearne and Rosie jams – where can you buy them?
The products are available at Waitrose, Ocado, Morrisons and other online outlets.
One 227g jar of Fearne and Rosie Reduced Sugar Jam costs £2.50.
Products contain more fruit and less sugar.
They are made with “all natural ingredients, absolutely no concentrates, are vegan, contain no palm oil and are made in the UK”.
Jams come in strawberry, raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant.
Potty Mouth Pet
First of all, Carlingford inventor Darren Louet-Feisser is looking for investment in his pet company Nobu Pets Ltd.
He pitches his quirky pet products, including his pet bed travel system, a hose dog brush and Potty Mouth Pet.
The former stand-up comedian has gone full circle with his invention.
He says: I used to do a lot of products about poop, and now I am literally designing products about picking up doggy poop.”
Peter says the yellow portable pooper scooper “looks like a half-cut tennis ball”.
It costs £20, with Potty Mouth pooper scooper, portable dog poop scooper, dog leash clip and pooper scooper bags all included.
The Potty Mouth pooper scooper has magentic teeth to keep it sealed and comes in two sizes – “for big poops and small poops”.
The Potty MouthPet enables dog owners to pick up dog mess from any surface without using their hands.
Did you know that the average dog produces 152 pounds of solid waste per year?
Or that in a city of 100,000 people, dogs can generate 2.5 tonnes of faeces per day?
And the plastic bags generally used to pick up dog poo can take up to a 1000 years to decompose in landfill.
Darren has already appeared on Dragons’ Den Ireland in 2009, when he pitched a different business and secured backing from three Dragons Sean Gallagher, Niall O’Farrell and Bobby Kerr.
He’s subsequently hoping to win the UK Dragons over too!
Dragons’ Den pitch: Ocushield blue light blockers

They say it will transform the eye health of nation obsessed with technology, preventing eye strain, headaches and blurry vision.
