Last weekend, Noa and I were very glad to join the Yakult Philippines Plant Visit in Laguna together with some bloggers. I rarely say yes to out-of-town blogging events, but since Yakult is a household favorite, I couldn’t let the chance slip.
My daughter is a Yakult monster — she can finish 5 bottles in one sitting if you don’t keep it out of her sight. When I told her the night before our scheduled visit, she was very excited to come with me since I told her that we would be visiting the Yakult factory.
The Yakult Plant and Main Office is located at Maharlika Highway, Bo. Makiling Calamba City, Laguna
The Yakult Plant is very clean and organized. We were able to take a glimpse of the different manufacturing sections of Yakult. Everything we see on each bottles of Yakult is manufactured at their plant in Laguna.
This is the section wherein they gather and print on the Yakult bottles
This is where they carefully check the proper foil capping of each Yakult bottles. Yakult Philippines produces 2.4 million bottles of Yakult everyday.
Did you know that you can visit the Yakult Plant for FREE? As long as the plant is available, you can schedule a site visit with them.
