Industry Visit. At Yakult Danone India, Food Park, Rai, Sonepat, Haryana. On February 11, 2016. As a student of a Management college, industry visits are always exciting and enriching. The opportunity was judiciously utilized by my batch mates of (2015-2017). The day rolled out really quick and we all representing EMPI Business School, in a well-groomed attire and attitude forwarded towards our first industry visit to Yakult Danone India. It was around a 2 hours journey from our college. But as soon as we reached the Plant the whole atmosphere was beaming with enthusiasm and Selfies. We are being greeted by the Plant Manager Abhishek and his co-member Soojit. We are being updated about some basic digital hygiene and the functional use of cameras and video recording. Next we are being given a welcome drink and are briefed about the Safety feature of the plant and Assembly area. The whole program started with a short presentation, where we are being updated about healthy living, prevention related to food related ailments, lifestyle modification and with all this context how Yakult, being a functional food helps our body to maintain its proper metabolism. Next a brief on the product and some good knowledge was provided on probiotic and Lactobacillus Casei strain Shirota and their application on human body and benefits out of it. A good question answer session was carried out to break the ice and start a very interactive and positive communication between the two parties. After this we are being introduced to the whole manufacturing system, and are guided by Abhishek to the first segment of the production process, which started from the Germination Chamber or the Seed room, where the strains coming from Japan in powdered form are being germinated in controlled temperature and pressure. He further updated that the whole plant is under controlled humidity and breathable air. Next process includes the fermentation chamber and followed by Quality Control, where every batch of fermentation is being critically monitored along with the final product that is being in the verge of liquefaction. Followed by this is the packaging area where fresh bottles are being made by injection molds and are filled with final product, sealed and packed for retail use or institutional use, as per demand basis. The whole plant is being maintained by only 8 people which includes all the process of manufacturing and PR activities. At present the plant is working on 99% automation with a 30% capacity utilization. In between we were having some critical communication with him on the whole system of the plant and the operation of the machines. After the whole tour we had a group photo and warm wishes along with a strong handshake to end our tour. All in all it was a very warm experience, as their hospitality was amazing and we all had a great memory to cherish upon in the future.
