Our Mission

Yakult's mission is to contribute to the health and happiness of every person around the world through the pursuit of excellence in life sciences and the study of microorganisms. We continue to spread the message of preventive medicine and the benefits of probiotics, such as Lactobacillus casei Shirota. One by one, city by city, country by country, we deliver this message in the shape of a small bottle - a bottle that contains around 8 billion live and active good bacteria.

Consuming one or two bottles a day of this exclusive probiotic drink may help improve digestive balance and overall wellness. Yakult and Yakult Light have no fat, no cholesterol, no preservatives, no gluten, no high fructose corn syrup and no aspartame.
