Top-Ranked U.S. Tennis Pro, Taylor Fritz, Teams Up With Stryve Foods
Leading Air-Dried Meat Snack Company Brings on ATP’s #23-Ranked Pro To Promote Healthier Habits
PLANO, Texas, Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stryve Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNAX) (“Stryve” or “the Company”), an emerging healthy snack and eating platform disrupting traditional consumer packaged goods (CPG) categories, and a leader in the air-dried meat snack industry in the United States, announced that Stryve has partnered with Taylor Fritz, the highest-ranked American tennis pro, as its newest brand ambassador.
Fritz, 24, is currently the ATP’s No. 23 ranked tennis player ahead of his competition in men’s singles at the 2022 Australian Open.
Stryve is passionate about healthy living, which made Fritz a natural fit for the brand. Taylor relies on Stryve’s nutrient-dense, air-dried meat snack options, made with high-quality and simple ingredients, to fuel his elite training regimen. Through this partnership, Fritz hopes to help educate consumers about better snacking options for their active lifestyles.
“Teaming with Stryve to kick off my 2022 season is incredibly rewarding for me as an athlete and overall fan of the brand,” said Fritz. “Now, more than ever, consumers are keenly aware of what they put into their bodies – you need clean, healthy ingredients to fuel an active lifestyle and that’s exactly what I get from Stryve. And Stryve meat snacks are delicious!”
“Taylor has been a fan of the Stryve brand for a long time, so having a rising star in the tennis world join Stryve as a brand ambassador was a no-brainer,” said Joe Oblas, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Stryve. “Taylor’s success is a testament to hard work and dedication – both of which require the right fuel. Our biltong products are packed with 16 grams of protein per ounce, are all natural and come in a variety of delicious flavors, which we believe make them some of the best possible snacks to help you eat better and live a better, happier life.”
