Established over 100 years ago, Unilever are one of the world’s largest consumer goods companies. They are known for their great brands and our belief that doing business the right way drives superior performance. When John Lawson Johnston died, his son George Lawson Johnston inherited and took over the Bovril business. In 1929, George Lawson Johnston was made Baron Luke, of Pavenham, in the county of Bedford.

In fact, by this time, Bovril was so popular with Brits that an electric advertising sign was erected in London’s Piccadilly Circus.

A century and a half ago, a revolution took place in the food industry. A boom in the urban population fuelled a need for the mass production of affordable, non-perishable foodstuffs sold in cans and jars. Advances in processing and manufacturing collided with a burgeoning interest in science: the result was the emergence of branded convenience foods, cleverly marketed as nourishing and nutritious.

Somehow or other, both Pepper Mill and I knew the answer, although I don’t think they’ve ever had Bovril here in the States. As Rayne Man suggests, we told her it was like beef bouillon. Some 130 years ago a Scotsman spotted a gap in the market. Tasked with supplying preserved beef from the ranches of North America for Napoleon III’s army, following their defeat due to starvation during the 1870/71 Siege of Paris, John Lawson Johnston saw the potential for a beef extract with added protein. He produced an extract made by heating carcasses of cattle and reducing the liquids that came off into a residue which was mixed with powdered dried meat. This substance, which Johnston believed was truly nutritious, overcame all the problems associated with the transportation of meat across thousands of miles of ocean. Bovril was an inspired name marrying together meat, myth and magic: the first part of the word ‘bo’ borrowed from bovine and the second part ‘vril’ from Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s science fiction novel, The Coming Race, in which the Vril-ya were an underground people with awesome electrical powers.

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! Advertising connected Bovril to the fashionable and popular physical culture movement by getting sporting celebrities to endorse the brand. One of these, the world’s strongest man at the turn of the 20th century, an Adonis-like star called Eugen Sandow, had developed his rippling muscles so that his body resembled a classical sculpture which he showed off to enormous crowds in the music halls. In the 1910s Bovril was also marketed as a highly advanced, scientific beverage that had been shown in experiments to boost the weight, assumed to be muscle mass, of humans and dogs. In 1871, a Scot named John Lawson Johnston won a 'canned beef' contract to feed Napoleon's troops with his invention "Johnston's Fluid Beef", the original name for his famous Beef Extract. Renamed Bovril in 1886, the Great British drink we know and love was born.

The inventor of Bovril found an unusual word in a book. The first two letters of the Latin word ‘bovir’, meaning ‘electric fluid’, were combined with the word ‘vril’, which means ‘an electric fluid’. The word was used in the 18th century to describe the fluid that flowed through the human body. It was also used as a name for a type of electric battery, and it is still used today. Is Bovril high in B12?For an instant, warming, nourishing drink, simply put one heaped teaspoon (5g) of Instant Bovril Beef Flavoured Drink into a cup. Add 200ml (7floz) of hot water and stir until dissolved.

One serving provides a fifth of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of folic acid, a quarter of our riboflavin needs and 15 per cent of the niacin requirement.
