Happy Lunar New Year from Yakult


Lunar New Year is a celebration of the arrival of spring and the beginning of a new. It is one of the most important holidays in China, one also widely celebrated in Vietnam, South Korea, and countries with a significant overseas Chinese population. This year we usher in the Year of the wood Dragon based on the Chinese zodiac calendar.



At Yakult, we celebrated the Lunar New Year at our facility with dragon-themed event in Dandenong, Victoria. In addition to a Mandarin-guided tour of our factory, we provided a dragon handcraft activity for all child attendees while learning about the benefits of Yakult. Our mascot Yakult Man joined us for photographs and gifted everyone Yakult customised red envelopes (lucky packets) in the tradition of Lunar New Year.


We wish you a happy Lunar New Year and all the best in the Year of Dragon!
