Profile

Yakult is a pioneer in probiotics, which launched the probiotic drinks Yakult in 1935 after Minoru Shirota's discovery of Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota, a strain of lactic acid bacteria proved to be able to live in intestines, in 1930. It operates in 38 countries across four continents. In addition to the retail outlets, the home delivery channel, served by a team of 80,000 Yakult Ladies globally, contributes about 45% of its food and beverage sales. Yakult has built a meaningful presence in emerging markets including China, Indonesia, Mexico, and Brazil, the key drivers behind its growth. Overseas markets comprise more than 40% of group sales and about 70% of profits. It also operates a pharmaceutical business with an emphasis on oncology drugs, leveraging its know-how in probiotics.
