Our first U.S. factory is located in Fountain Valley, California, where we make both Yakult and Yakult Light. Our factory also makes, fills, seals and packages our iconic little bottles. The facility can produce 950,000 bottles a day, every one of them packed with billions of live and active probiotic strain, L. paracasei strain Shirota.

We are now offering FREE guided tours of our factory in Fountain Valley, California.
