OKEY KA BA TIYAN? The iconic phrase is just getting nearer as Yakult Philippines, Inc. is now building a new factory in Quibonbon, El Salvador City in Misamis Oriental. Yakult El Salvador (Y.E.S.) will be the company’s second plant in the country and will rise at a 4.2-hectare property, some 40 percent larger than its first plant in Calamba, Laguna.
The upcoming plant is targeted to start operations in January 2023 with a maximum daily production capacity of 3.2 million bottles of its mainstay Yakult and low-calorie Yakult Light. It will initially produce 1.6 million bottles of Yakult and Yakult Light daily, and the company plans to expand its facilities depending on demand.
The Y.E.S. Plant Project is expected to generate additional revenues to the city as well as provide more job opportunities to the unemployed. Construction is now ongoing.
