About OtsukaMessage from Top Management

We aim to be an indispensable contributor to people’s health worldwide.

Inspired by our core philosophy, "Otsuka-people creating new products for better health worldwide," we work hard to create new value through the complementary nature of our two core businesses – our Pharmaceutical Business, which extends from the diagnosis of disease through to treatment, and our Nutraceutical Business, which supports the daily maintenance and improvement of health.

Since our founding, we have pursued a creative approach, thinking outside of the box to explore new and unique solutions to global health issues. In 2019, the start of Japan's new Reiwa era, the Otsuka group announced its Third Medium-Term Management Plan, a period in which to advance and grow, and also challenge ourselves in new approaches, categories, and geographies. In preparation for the 100th anniversary of the company next year, 2020 marks an important year for Otsuka Pharmaceutical to implement a new system and methodology for our continual future growth.

In order to continue to respond to the needs of people around the world looking to maintain good health, we leverage science-based research and creativity, the two pillars of our DNA, and keep one step ahead of emerging challenges in an ever-changing society.
