You're invited to visit the Yakult Factory

Our amazing history dates back to the 1930s when scientist Dr. Minoru Shirota selected and cultivated the Lactobacillus casei Shirota bacteria. And in 1935, Dr. Shirota produced the first glass bottles of Yakult.

Now, many years later, Yakult factories throughout the world continue to produce Yakult in its iconic little bottle. Did you know that our little bottle is the same everywhere in the world? Would you like to know more about how Yakult is produced? We are happy to provide you with a tour along the production process for free.

The factory in Almere, the Netherlands is also open for visitors. Last year alone we received more than 10.000 visitors.
