H.E. Dr. Akima Umezawa, Consul-General of Japan in Dubai, UAE, hosted the Japanese National Day Reception to celebrate the birthday of His Majesty the Emperor of Japan. The reception was attended by UAE ministers, residing diplomats, VIP guests & corporate executives at HABTOOR PALACE, Dubai from 7 PM until 9 PM extended until 10 PM. Japanese companies in the UAE took part in the exhibition and Yakult Middle East was one among them to showcase & sample its products. Around 150 guests (of which 10% Arabs, 40% Westerners and Asians and the remaining 50% Japanese) who visited Yakult’s stand were offered a bottle of Yakult.
Guests who tried Yakult for the first time were exited to know about Yakult, its benefits and probiotics in general. Many guests who had already consumed Yakult before elsewhere in the world were happy to learn Yakult’s availability in the UAE. Many said it is their kids favorite drink. Guests who were unaware about the launch of NEW Yakult LIGHT were happy to know about its availability in the UAE.
