100 years of otsuka
From humble beginnings in Japan, Otsuka has grown into a global organisation with a core focus on pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals.
Throughout this time, Otsuka has strived to think differently in the pursuit of solutions and opportunities that improve the health and well-being of people worldwide.
People from all over the world choose to work with us. They value our commitment to innovation and our spirit of creativity and perseverance.
The direction and growth of our 40-year-plus European business has been influenced by our Japanese heritage. We take pride in tackling challenges and seeking solutions that will make a difference to people’s lives.
Our European colleagues worked together to define why we do what we do and how we can be better together. Find out more about our values, built by Otsuka-people.
