(TSXv: YERB.u; OTCQX: YERBF), a plant-based energy beverage company, today announced Brock Purdy, quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, has signed on to its growing roster of luminary investors. While Purdy has endorsement deals with a variety of other companies and causes, his relationship with Yerbaé is his first as an investor.
"The best competitors analyze everything about their performance, including taking nutrition seriously. I’m excited pure plant-based energy is now available in an energy drink without sugar. Yerbae, it’s a Game Changer," said Purdy.
Brock Purdy – known as the former “Mr. Irrelevant” as the last player selected in the 2022 NFL Draft – continues to establish himself as one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks, leading a team with strong Super Bowl prospects.
