Takeda Completes Consumer Health Split

Feb. 20, 2017

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company will transfer its Japan consumer healthcare business unit to Takeda Consumer Healthcare Company Limited (TCHC), its wholly owned subsidiary.

Takeda announced its intention to spin-off its Japan Consumer Healthcare Business Unit in February 2016, in order to realize a more agile business model to promptly meet environmental changes and customers’ needs in the consumer healthcare market.

The Japan consumer healthcare business unit has been focusing on over-the counter medicines including Alinamin and Benza, and a health food named Midori-no-Shukan.
