Yakult To Construct New Plant In Guangdong, China
Probiotic dairy drink company Yakult has announced that it is starting construction on a new plant in Foshan, in China's Guangdong province.
This will be the the group's sixth production plant in China, having started with its Guangzhou facility in 2002.
The company says that the Guangdong province is witnessing strong demand for its product in its central cities, but it also expects sales to rise in suburban areas as health awareness grows.
The Foshan plant is planned to be operational by March 2019, and will have the capacity to produce 1.2 million bottles of Yakult and Yakult Light per day.
