West Brom forward Hal Robson-Kanu has seen his company The Turmeric Co agree a partnership deal with Championship high-flyers Swansea City.
Swansea City is pleased to announce a new partnership with @TheTurmericCo for the remainder of the 2020-21 season as the club’s official turmeric supplier.

Robson-Kanu founded The Turmeric Co, who “produce a unique range of delicious turmeric shots”.
HRK branching out
We never would have thought a team would need an official turmeric supplier but here we are.
Footballers usually always have to find themselves something to do once their playing days are over and while Robson-Kanu has been in charge of The Turmeric Co for some time now, it’s great that he’s got a successful business up and running before he hangs up his boots.
The Wales international will turn 32-years-old in May and a month later will see his contract at West Brom expire unless he agreed a new deal between then and now.
However, as HRK has struggled for game-time this season, it seems unlikely that he’ll be getting himself fresh terms at The Hawthorns.
Robson-Kanu has made just 12 appearances in all competitions for West Brom this season and has failed to start a single game in the Premier League.
He’s regularly made matchday squads for Slaven Bilic and Sam Allardyce either side of a fractured arm but it’s pretty clear that England’s top-flight is a step too high for the former Reading man.
Robson-Kanu did great last season in helping the Baggies win promotion but it does seem as though this summer will see a natural separation between the forward and the Black Country club.
Maybe a move to Swansea is on the cards now he’s got an in at the Liberty with his turmeric company but we’ll probably see HRK back at The Hawthorns next season in the Championship if we go down and he bags himself a contract at another second-tier side.
In other West Brom news, this youngster has been tipped to “take the league by storm” if the Albion sign him in the summer.
