Factory Tour - Yakult

Who has not heard of Yakult? Please raise your hands!

Yakult LadyYakult has been around since 1960s in Japan. It was brought to Singapore in the 1980s. Yakult has her own manufacturing plant in Singapore (amazing if you ask me) so that the bottle can be delivered to us as fresh as possible either through the Yakult ladies or through retail shops.

Currently there are a few types of Yakult Drinks. In Singapore, two types are common. One is Yakult with 10 billion unique probiotics L.casei Strain Shirota and Yakult Ace Light with 30 billions unique probiotics L.casei  strain Shirota.

Situated in Senoko, the factory is open for group visit only. So contact us if you are interested (6 months advance booking is required).

Inside the factory, a guide will talk about the benefits and history of Yakult which contains billions of L.casei Shirota which is discovered by Yakult founder Dr. Minoru Shirota. After the talk, a video will be shown educating us on our immune system and how Yakult drinks can help us. During the talk and video, all participants can enjoy a cold bottle of Yakult..FREE.

After the video we will be given a guided tour around the factory from the cultivating room, to seeding room, to making the sugar syrup room to the bottling and labeling room and the bottle making room.

Do note that photo taking are not allowed in some parts of the factory.

This tour will be classified as part of the Factory Tours and Educational Tours.

If you need transportation services to visit this place, please refer to our product listing page.

Does any of the ingredients, including the probiotics bacteria, in the Yakult drink come from Japan, i.e. am keen to know if there is any exposure to radiation contamination.
