Grandparent’s Day at Yakult

What is Grandparent’s Day?


Grandparent’s day is a special day to celebrate the important role grandparents play in our lives. It is a day to show our appreciation for all they do for us and to let them know how much we love and cherish them.


Grandparents play a pivotal part in Australian society. As the average age of Australians continues to rise, this special day acknowledges and honours all grandparents for their unconditional love for their families and contributions to society.


Grandparent’s Day event


At the end of the September school holidays, Yakult ran a special Grandparent’s Day event at our facility in Dandenong South. In addition to a tour of our factory, we provided delicious Yakult milk slushies. All attendees including children and their families participated in a spinning wheel lucky draw competition to win a prize. Our mascot Yakult Man also joined us for photographs. Everyone had great fun on that day! Check out our video to enjoy a snapshot of our Grandparent’s Day event.

If your grandparent doesn’t live close by, there are still plenty of ways to show your love and appreciation. You could send them a homemade card or picture, give them a call, or even just tell them how much you appreciate everything they’ve done for you. No matter how you choose to celebrate, Australian Grandparent’s Day is a special day to remember the wonderful people in our lives who have always been there for us.
