Field Trip to Yakult Philippines

Our MBA class recently went to Yakult Philippines in Calamba, Laguna for a plant tour and visit. The activity is part of our Operations Management (OM) class under Prof. Nani Roxas. Our class went on two separate trips and our section went in the morning.

This is one of the few activities I was able to bring my camera so I'll probably have the images below speak for themselves:

Early birds, before the bus left (L-R): Shu Wang, Karen Sumcio,Neil Risos, Kristine Duque, Anton Del Rosario, Paolo Tomas & Ha Kim Lien)

Ready to roll out! (L-R): Prof. Nani Roxas, Shu Wang, Pia Sanedrin, Neil Risos, Julie Chua, Nina Laquinadum,Paolo Tomas, Ha Kim Lien, Deepti Srivastava, Shonal Jadia)

Yakult, here we come! (F-B): Karen Sumcio, Neil Risos, Rosie Avila, Kristine Duque, John Ray, Anton Del Rosario)

Pair #1: Paolo Tomas & Cheska Herrera

Pair #2: Rajat Gorawara & Julie Chua

The Yakult Plant: 7 million bottles of Yakult are produced here every day.

Ready for briefing: Our class was sterilized before we set foot inside Yakult's audio-visual room.

Ms. Yakult: Ms. Anna of Yakult gave a presentation and answered questions regarding the plant's processes, products and operations. Trivia: Yakult uses a propietary lactobacilli strain discovered in the 1930's.

Yakult Packing: This photo shows bottle packing facility of the plant, where three lines pack bottles in different quantities.

Yakult Production: This is the place where the milk turns into Yakult; thanks to bacteria culturing, temprtature treating and blending

MBA Girls enjoying the trip (L-R): Diamond Uy and Pia Sanedrin

Hey, I'm not reading this brochure (L-R): Shri Reddy, Rishi Ghosh, Sanjiv Balakrishnan & Digvijay Srivastava)

OK ka ba t'yan?!: Me and Lacto

The trip was very informative and enriching and given our section, we made it a little bit more fun. Good thing everybody did not have motion sickness (well, except for Sandeep "Mandeep" Sharma).
