“Odyssey is a purpose-driven company on a mission to upgrade people from their habitual caffeine crash, jitters, and burnout to a more sustainable energy. By utilizing the power of functional mushrooms and bringing them mainstream, we aspire to expand a growing population of conscious individuals that are more focused, more productive, and passionate about doing good, feeling good, and sharing those vibes with others,” added Frohman.
The market for Odyssey is being driven by uptrending generations of forward-thinking Gen Z and millennial creatives, artists, techies, athletes, and health-conscious consumers. Odyssey targets the convergence of the $86 billion energy drink and $118 billion functional beverage markets. Since its debut last year, it is now available at over 5K brick and mortar locations, including natural, conventional retailers, and c-stores.
