Meat the Mushroom

meat the mushroomMarvin and Aleah Montague introduce the Sharks to Meat the Mushroom, their vegan bacon made from 5 simple ingredients, in Shark Tank episode 1508. The husband and wife team started the business in 2021 after being vegan for 7 years. Marvin initially went vegan for health reasons – it helped him beat an early diagnosis of heart disease and cured the asthma that had bothered him since childhood.

Their product, which they call “Shroomacon,” is the first they introduced. It tastes like BACON! The ingredients are mushrooms, olive oil, smoke flavor, salt and black pepper. Each slice is just 25 calories (compared to 44 for a slice of bacon). The Shroomacon is free of nitrates, soy, gluten, cholesterol and saturated fats.

Eight 3 ounce packs cost $88. They have their products in several regional grocery chains like Woodman’s Central Market, Mom’s Organic Market and dozens of independent stores. They likely want a Shark’s help getting into more national chains.

They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John and recurring Shark Daniel Lubetzky that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Meat the Mushroom will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
