During the laboratory and production area tour, participants were required to wear uniforms that had been prepared by the company, namely laboratory coats, headgear, and footwear. In this tour, participants were given knowledge about the tools used in the laboratory, the types of laboratories, the product development process, and the production process starting from preparing raw materials, mixing, labeling, filling, and product packaging.
