In 2020, Jason Baits-Tomlin established BACX with the aim of offering athletes and sports enthusiasts a healthier and more efficient option for energy and rehydration, in contrast to the sugar-laden beverages that are commonly consumed.
BACX has appointed Bill Ronald, the former Chairman of Fever-Tree, as its new Chairman. Ronald was instrumental in driving Fever-Tree’s remarkable growth, taking the company from a $34 million to a $400 million revenue enterprise.
Drawing on his vast experience in the food and beverage industry, Ronald intends to contribute to BACX’s ongoing prosperity.
A remarkable group of athlete ambassadors, including Joe Truman, a Commonwealth medalist, and Team GB track cyclist, have been drawn to BACX.
Sebastian Vettel talks about his investment
“BACX products were the first I’ve tried throughout my 15-year F1 career that kept me energized right until the end of a Grand Prix without any stomach problems or side effects.”
“This inspired me to get involved, alongside our mutual values of sustainability, health, and performance, to help scale the business to assist as many people as possible on their fitness journey.”
