"The time has come for retailers to actively participate in their customers' health," says Barbara Ruhs, a former Harvard University dietitian and current director of the Eat Smart program at Bashas'. "I believe that supermarkets can be catalysts for curbing public health issues such as obesity and other lifestyle-related diseases, which puts them in a very powerful position."

"Through our firm's research, we have real-life evidence that consumers want to take the more proactive role in their health," says Caroline Gibbons. "This is a great opportunity for retailers to be a part of this new era for consumers at the ground floor."

Attendance to the presentation is free. Pre-registration is recommended since space is limited (click here to register). Interested attendees may also stop by the Yakult Booth (#4484) at Expo West this week to sign-up and learn more about Yakult's signature probiotic dairy drink.

Yakult U.S.A. Inc., a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Yakult Honsha Co., Ltd., is headquartered in Torrance, CA. It supports Yakult's business in the United States and Canada. Scientists all over the world continue to confirm and expand knowledge regarding the benefits of probiotics and Yakult.
