Challenge for Olympic athletes

Handful ambassadors are people in who we do believe deeply, representing our values completely in their everyday routine. That is why we pick them very carefully.

We had an opportunity to cooperate with some wonderful people in the past, food bloggers, chefs, lifestyle bloggers, moms, public persons… and we are more than proud in each and every cooperation.

Still, this one was very dear and inspiring. As a brand who would like to promote healthy way of leaving and food, sports was something logical to be a part of our promotion. We are very proud that our country is one of the most successful when it comes to sports woman and men. Profesional athletes live life that is not easy. They invest lot of effort and time in a way to reach the best scores. One of the key element on this way is food. It is not secret that food is one of the most important part in everyday of both professional and non professional athletes.

Therefore, with great pleasure, we would like to announce new Handful ambassador. He is not only athletes, but Olympic athletes in decathlon. He is a great man and humanitarian worker, natural lover in animals, Mihail Dudaš was natural choice for this role. We believe this is a long standing friendship.

Please look how Mihail challenge himself with Handful freeze dried fruit.
