The Grenade story is one of hands-on hard work and a commitment to doing things better. Launched in 2010 their mission was simple. As sports supplement distributors they had grown tired of selling products that looked and sounded the same. So they set about creating products that people would actively seek out and remember. Grenade is now a market-leading sports performance and active nutrition brand, incorporating a wide range of innovative, high-protein and low-sugar products.
