Four Sigmatic is a company founded by group of Finnish friends in 2012. The United Kingdom was one of the first stops of the Finnish Funguys on their journey to shroomize the world.
Currently their easy-to-use and effective functional mushroom products can be found in over 2000 natural food stores in the United States. Recently they also launched their innovative mushroom coffees in Sephora stores around United States and opened their own retail space in hip Abbot Kinney street in Venice, California.
Mushroom wave from the other side of the Atlantic is also reaching the shores of the United Kingdom and you may find Four Sigmatic products for instance in Planet Organic, Whole Foods Market and As Nature Intended, along with their own website www.foursigmatic.com.
Their sortiment has functional beverages in easy-to-use powder packets. Their most popular product is Mushroom Coffee which has been raved by bloggers, podcasters and even the Osbournes in the recent years. It tastes like coffee but it has half the caffeine of a regular coffee cup and mushrooms in it lower the acidity of the coffee and bring health benefits for immunity and cognition.
Four Sigmatic uses functional mushrooms like Chaga, Reishi, Cordyceps and Lion’s Mane which all have plenty of research and even up to 2000 years of proven usage. Finnish founders definitely haven’t been cheap with their mushrooms as their functional Elixirs have up to 1.5 grams of dual-extracted mushrooms per packet, adaptogenic herbs filling the rest of the 3 gram packet. Chaga is known to boost your immune system as Reishi, also called the “Mushroom for Longevity” has been associated with stress-relieve and improvement of sleep. Cordyceps is a favorite of the athletes due to its support for the lungs and oxygen intake when Lion’s Mane is famous for cognitive and brain supportive qualities.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) has highlighted the efforts of Divine Chocolate as a model for success.
The Government department highlighted that Divine’s ethical business model plays a key part in its international exporting success, with the United States being its biggest market, finding that it is leading the way in the ethical chocolate industry. The Department for International Trade (DIT) recently helped Divine to acquire a Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) Grant, which enabled the company to attend BIOFACH 2019, in Germany.
Secretary of State for International Trade, Dr Liam Fox MP, commented: “It is exciting to see a UK company like Divine Chocolate, who was involved in our Britain is GREAT campaign, not only finding success in overseas markets but also ensuring that these hard-working cocoa farmers get the remuneration and industry recognition that they deserve. This is an excellent example of how important international trade is for empowering producers in emerging economies to increase prosperity and wealth.
“The UK exported an impressive £713.7m worth of chocolate last year, highlighting a global demand for British-made produce. This is a golden opportunity for other UK producers to tap into the demand and explore new international markets, and my international economic department has a network of experts on hand to help navigate the entire exporting process.”
Sophi Tranchell MBE, Group CEO of Divine Chocolate, added: “We knew from the UK market – where our initial audience and supporters were primarily Fairtrade supporters – that consumers were very proactive in spreading the message about Fairtrade products, and our chocolate was a favourite way to tell the Fairtrade story. Therefore, it made sense to grow into markets where our chocolate would be loved, and our ethical story would be appreciated.”
