We are proud to have Shilpa Shetty as our brand ambassador as she is synonymous with good health, fitness and an active lifestyle. Having carved a niche for herself in the health and fitness space, Shilpa is completely in sync with “Shirota-ism” our core ideology which focuses on the idea of ‘prevention being better than cure’ and ‘a healthy intestine leads to a long life’,” said Shimada.

Meanwhile, Kundra said “I am very careful about my association with brands and therefore it was important for me to visit the Yakult factory to learn more… Totally convinced, I make sure now that my entire family and me have Yakult every day. I feel very proud to be associated with Yakult as their brand ambassador and want more people understand its benefits.”

Yakult is manufactured in Sonepat in Haryana and is being presented as a drink which will boost immunity and modulate the intestinal flora to restore balance in the body.
