Bristol Rovers renews partnership with ‘friendly bacteria’ brand Yakult

14 November 2023

Bristol Rovers are delighted to announce that our partnership with Yakult will continue through to the end of 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.

James Aitken, Head of Nutrition at Bristol Rovers, said: “Everyone here loves Yakult. The players consume the products daily as a part of a balanced diet. As a result, I'm very pleased to renew our partnership with Yakult."

Kevin Mansell, National Sales Manager at Yakult UK & Ireland, said: ‘’Yakult is proud to partner with dynamic organisations such as Bristol Rovers FC that recognise the importance of a balanced diet and lifestyle, and the role of gut health in supporting overall wellbeing throughout the football season and beyond. It’s a pleasure to provide the team with their daily Yakult and to cheer them on. We wish the team a successful season.’’

Yakult has been investigating gut bacteria for over 85 years and believes that happiness and wellbeing start in the gut.

Yakult is available in three delicious varieties: Yakult Original (red top), Yakult Balance (blue top) and Yakult Plus (green top). Yakult Original is the iconic fermented milk drink which has a hint of vanilla and lemon flavours. Yakult Balance also contains vitamin D** which supports immunity and normal bone & muscle function. Yakult Plus is rich in vitamin C***, which supports immunity and helps lower fatigue. It also contains fibre that feed the bacteria in the gut.

Yakult is available at major stockists nationwide including Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Waitrose, Ocado, Milk & More and Booths.
