Yili Receives FDA Approval for Dairy Products and Launches First U.S. Flagship Store

Yili Group recently opened its first U.S. flagship store in Los Angeles, CA. Located in the 99 Ranch Market in The Shops at Santa Anita, the store launch marks a significant milestone for Yili as it expands its presence in the U.S. market. The 99 Ranch Market is one of the largest Asian supermarket chains in the U.S., with stores set up nationwide. This follows the official approval of various Yili products by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including AMBPOMIAL and Youngfun liquid dairy products, as well as Chocliz,Bitter Coffee and Yili Ranch. These products are now available to American consumers.

Yili’s expansion in the U.S. market involves its four main business lines: liquid milk, milk powder, ice cream, and butter. Prior to the store launch, Yili’s Kabrita goat milk infant formula products and Westgold butter products were introduced in the U.S. market.
