PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the top receivers in the NFL is catching on to something new: entrepreneurial investing. Doug Baldwin, Jr. of the Seattle Seahawks has teamed up with Shurky Jurky, a leading artisan snack purveyor known for its natural attributes and handcrafted quality.
Shurky Jurky (SJ) is a forward-thinking #FarmToLabel consumer packaged goods (CPG) branded online business that supports local farmers and ranchers. Baldwin is now a minority owner, advisor and investor in this fast-growing eCommerce-driven startup.
"We want to work with companies that are changing their markets with innovative, visionary products," said Baldwin. "Shurky Jurky is the perfect example. It's a tasty snack that is also healthy. I'm excited about our partnership."
With a strong team in place, Shurky Jurky has a long-term CPG vision for a diverse line of shelf-stable snacks that bridge the gap between healthy and tasty. Baldwin and other savvy investors will play key roles moving forward.
The startup is pursuing a Seed Round of financing with use of proceeds planned for new product launches and targeted digital advertising. The company has plans to expand outside of meat and take its products abroad.
