ORONAMIN C DRINK marketed in Indonesia

AIO produces and markets POCARI SWEAT, SOYJOY, and other health-related products for the Indonesian market. Various marketing and public awareness campaigns have boosted awareness of the health value of these products, earning a reputation for quality and reliability.
Affected by reduced consumer spending and other factors, the Indonesian market for beverages is slowing*1, with trends indicating a preference for high value-added, affordable products*2. With the introduction of ORINAMIN C, an iconic brand recognized and trusted by people of all ages in Japan, Otsuka aims to promote the health benefits of the product in the Indonesian market.

AIO president Director Yoshihiro Bando commented on the product launch: "Based on our corporate philosophy of 'Otsuka-people creating new products for better health worldwide,' we have contributed to health and wellbeing with products such as POCARI SWEAT and SOYJOY. With the launch of ORONAMIN C, we aim to offer new health benefits and bring energy and smiles to people throughout Indonesia."

ORONAMIN C DRINK is a carbonated nutritional beverage fortified with vitamins, including the vitamin C equivalent of 11 lemons. Creating a new market category of carbonated nutritional beverages with its 1965 launch in Japan, in 2011 ORONAMIN C became the first small-sized vitamin drink to sell more than 30 billion bottles in Japan. Developed from the pioneering idea of adding carbonation to a nutritional beverage, ORONAMIN C has maintained the same basic formula and product logo over the years, while making innovative promotions including enamel billboards and campaigns featuring well-known celebrities have kept pace with the changing times. Overseas distribution was launched in 1985, and ORONAMIN C is currently available in nine countries and areas including Japan. "Genki Hatsuratsu!" (Full of Vitality) ORONAMIN C will continue to energize people of all ages in Japan and overseas.
