Product Description

Beef & Yeast Extract
A great, hearty drink, warming millions with its beefy taste since 1886.
Bovril - a great, hearty drink, warming millions with it's beefy taste since 1886.

Do you know your Bovril history?
In 1871, a Scot, John Lawson Johnston, won a 'canned beef' contract to feed Napoleon's troops with his invention "Johnston's Fluid Beef". This has evolved into the Bovril we know today.
In 1968, the year Bovril production moved from London to Burton on Trent, Burton Football Club was saved from relegation when Stevenage Town left the Southern League!
In 1994, enough Bovril drink was made to fill 90 million match day mugs. In the same year, Andy Cole became the highest ever Premiership scorer with 34 goals in a season for Manchester United.

Product formulations may vary and consumers should always check the actual product label.

Heavenly on toast

Title says it all. Seemingly not everyone has come across the joys of Bovril on toast, but it trumps Marmite every time...

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Touches the Spot

On these cold wet days Bovril really warms you up. It's low in fat and calories ok perhaps it's a little high in salt but you can't have everything, and although it's fairly expensive you can get away with a scant teaspoon or less.
