About Levi Roots

Levi Roots is a chef, musician and entrepreneur who shot to fame in 2007 launching his Reggae Reggae sauce on Dragons’ Den, where he secured a £50k investment from Peter Jones and Richard Farleigh.

Since then, Levi has gone from strength to strength with over 50 different products on the brand, writing cookbooks, appearing on TV shows and much more. Levi spends most of his time these days attending schools, colleges and prisons sharing his positive outlook on life and trying to inspire our next generations. Levi is a regular attendee at DofE Gold Award celebration events.

Levi is also an accomplished musician, having performed with James Brown and Maxi Priest, and was nominated for a Best Reggae Act MOBO Award. Most excitingly, Levi is having a feature film made about his life story!

Levi has strong links to Bristol, from selling Reggae Reggae Sauce at St Pauls Carnival to becoming Chair of the board.
