Our Founder

Ed Bedford, a visionary entrepreneur born in England, has taken a remarkable journey from the adrenaline-fueled world of motorcycle racing to the forefront of design engineering and sustainable innovation. Ed's story is one of passion, determination, and a commitment to making a positive impact on the world.

Ed's early years were shaped by his love for speed and engineering. Growing up in England, he immersed himself in the thrilling world of motorcycle racing, honing his skills and developing a deep appreciation for the intricacies of design and performance. This passion for engineering and a desire to push boundaries became the driving force that defined Ed's career. A little known fact is that Eds Grandad actually invented the Jet Ski!

A decade ago, Ed made a life-altering decision to pursue the American dream. Moving to the United States, he entered the corporate arena, where he spent seven years ascending the corporate ladder. However, Ed's entrepreneurial spirit and desire for creative freedom eventually led him to take a leap of faith.

In pursuit of his vision, Ed founded his own engineering design consultancy. Over the years, he showcased his versatility by designing a wide array of products, ranging from sink scrub brushes to high-performance electric motorcycles. Ed's consultancy became synonymous with cutting-edge design solutions, earning him a reputation as an innovator in the industry.

It was during a routine trip to a grocery store 13 months ago that Ed's next big idea was born. Confronted by the overwhelming presence of plastic bottles in two entire aisles, Ed recognized the urgent need for a sustainable solution. Determined to bridge the gap between ready-to-drink convenience and eco-conscious practices, Ed conceptualized and founded SHARKBITE HYDRATION.

SHARKBITE HYDRATION is a revolutionary drink system designed by Ed Bedford to address the plastic waste crisis and actually taste great doing it! With an ingenious design that utilizes 99% less plastic, SHARKBITE HYDRATION offers a sustainable alternative to traditional “ready-to-drinks”. This innovative system not only reduces environmental impact but also provides consumers with a convenient and eco-friendly option for their favorite beverages.

Ed's journey from motorcycle racer to corporate climber and finally to the founder of SHARKBITE HYDRATION reflects his unwavering commitment to creating positive change. His story inspires not only aspiring entrepreneurs but also those who believe in the power of innovative solutions to address pressing global challenges. Ed Bedford is not just a business founder; he's a trailblazer in the pursuit of a sustainable future.
