Sanofi launches a new probiotic supplement for kids in South Korea. Released, in Costco stores under the global Cenovis Kids brand, the new supplement with a delicious vanilla flavor and teddy bear shape is produced by Anlit Ltd., Israel, and designed specifically for kids.
”We chose to work with Anlit since they have unique dietary supplement solutions designed for children,” says Joo Yuen Park, Cenovis Kids Brand Manager for Sanofi. “They specialize in making children’s supplements attractive to kids and their parents, helping to improve the child’s health and well-being.”

It is gluten-free, sugar-free, easily chewable and produced with Anlit’s proprietary microencapsulation technology that overcomes taste and texture challenges. It is marketed in cube-shaped units of 20 supplements per blister-pack. Each cube is individually sealed in a foil blister to ensure prolonged stability.
