To celebrate all the brains behind our Thrive Festival brands we wanted to delve deeper into the beginnings behind each one! Today we chat to Daithi from Revive Active
What is Revive Active’s mission statement?
We have a vision to see people getting the most out of life. To live healthier lives by giving their bodies and minds everything they need to be the best they can be every single day.
Our mission is to change how people look after their health by making Revive Active the easiest and most innovative solution to support their bodies and minds. With a portfolio of products to suit everyone, Revive Active is made to enrich your life.
Where did you get the inspiration for your brand?
My father was a family doctor in Sligo town and the surgery was part of our home. He was always helping others and when the opportunity presented itself to create a unique super supplement that had multiple benefits for people on their journey through life, the path was crystal clear for me.
What are some of your favourite brands in the wellness space that you do not make?
Spotlight Oral Care, Seavite and Elave.
In your opinion, what has been the biggest innovation within your sector in the last few years?
I believe Digital Health is essential to all our futures. People are more conscious of their health and are attending their GPs on a regular basis. Fitbits & Garmins allow people to monitor their daily exercise, heart rate, sleep, and stress levels. I believe this is the future and a preventative measure for future illnesses. We have embraced this culture and as a result, people can see the improvements in their health by taking Revive Active brands.
What has running your own business taught you?
It has taught me humility, understanding and that the words ‘to procrastinate’ do not exist in business.
What do you think is the next big thing in the world of wellness?
Digital health will play a key role for all ages, the western world has an ageing population and I believe advances in technology will allow people to live at home as they reach their 80’s & 90’s. Children born today are estimated to live beyond 100 years that will create a whole new culture.
What did your team enjoy the most about this year’s Thrive Festival?
There was a great range of fitness classes available for everyone to participate in. Great to see so many Irish businesses attending the event too. We were delighted to receive great brand recognition at the event and to interact with so many well-informed people attending.
You have been working from home during the COVID19 crisis. Tell us what your daily routine is like?
I believe a healthy body creates a sharper mind, every morning I have Revive Active & Mastermind together to kick start the day with everything I need for my body & soul. I usually go for a fast walk for about 45 minutes and take a quick dip in the ocean, I am very lucky to live beside the sea in Salthill, Galway.
Flahavan’s porridge oats for breakfast and then my laptop comes out. I usually connect with all the members of our Revive team during the day, we have been manufacturing our products in our Mullingar plant during COVID, all our team have been working closely with our retail partners the Pharmacies & Health food stores to help and assist. Two of our products Revive Active & Zest Active feature multiple ingredients to support your immune system and these products have been in high demand. We have shipped throughout the world from our fulfilment warehouse in Galway City and we have recruited three senior people since COVID started. We have just signed a new partnership with a Portuguese company in Oporto and we have more deals pending.
