28.02.23 Yakult Partnership

Yakult and Bristol Rovers are to continue their partnership into 2023.

This season, Yakult will continue to supply Bristol Rovers first-team players with their daily bottles of Yakult at the club's Quarters Training facility.

Yakult has been on a happy mission to inspire happiness and well-being since 1935. It all started with their founder, Japanese scientist, Dr Shirota, who believed that the gut is the core of well-being. He selected and cultivated a unique strain of lactic acid bacteria, now known as L. casei Shirota, and used it to make the famous milk drink, Yakult! 

Fast forward over 85 years, today Yakult products are enjoyed in over 40 countries and regions worldwide, with millions of people consuming products every day. Each little bottle of Yakult Original and Yakult Light contains over 20 billion friendly bacteria, scientifically proven to reach the gut alive.

James Aitken, Head of Nutrition at Bristol Rovers, said: “We’re delighted to renew our partnership with Yakult. The players really enjoy Yakult, and it has quickly become part of their daily routine."

Kevin Mansell, National Sales Manager at Yakult UK & Ireland, said: "We are proud to continue our partnership with Bristol Rovers Football Club, providing the team with their daily Yakult and cheering them on throughout the season."
