Building Societies Enriched by Smiles with the Power of Pharmaceuticals — Doing What Needs to Be Done

Over all these decades, our employees have each thought about what it means for Taiho Pharmaceutical to do what needs to be done, and then acted accordingly. This is what drove us to develop a new oral anticancer drug at a time when oral anticancer drugs, which can be taken at home, were scarcely used. Ever since, we have powered our constant search for optimal methods of administration. Taiho Pharmaceutical is about to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Looking back on some of our history, it is clear that Taiho Pharmaceutical’s growth has been supported by a culture where people persistently do what needs to be done, and passing the baton of that determination to their colleagues. We aim to keep growing by continuing to develop human resources who have the commitment and capacity to do what needs to be done.
“We…contribute to a society enriched by smiles” is a phrase that I especially value in our corporate philosophy. Working together with colleagues around the globe, our entire team will continue to deliver to the world high-quality, outstanding products that can be used with peace of mind. We will do our best to bring smiles to patients, indeed, to all people facing various problems, always helping to keep the rhythm of life flowing each and every day. I am confident that these efforts will enhance Taiho Pharmaceutical’s presence as a valuable company that supports people’s health and helps to build sustainable societies.
