Selected Successful Cases
28
Recaldent by Cadbury Japan
DESCRIPTION Recaldent, launched in 2000, is a
chewing gum containing xylitol and CCP-ACP, which
helps prevent tooth cavity and strengthen teeth.
Its business right was transferred to Cadbury
Japan in early 2003 due to acquisition of Pfizer
Consumer, Inc. (former Waner-Lambert) by Cadbury.
KEY SUCCESS FACTORS
1
Trident, a predecessor of Recaldent, was
innovative to create a healthy gum category in
Japan. - Trident was launched in 1976 as the
first sugarless gum in Japan, when consumers
awareness of dental care was still low.
2
Trident grew further to the next stage by adding
an innovative ingredient, Recaldent, which was
developed by University of Melbourne, Bonlac
Foods, and Victorian Dairy Industry Authority.
3
  • Recaldent was registered as a FOSHU product in
    June, 2003.
  • It is allowed to make a health claim, for your
    strong and healthy teeth
  • It can communicate a clear message to consumers

bark (Pinus maritima) in southern France. It
contains a high amount of polyphenols called OPC
or Oligomeric proanthocyanidin. The ingredient
is imported from France by Toyo Shinyaku. RTD
tea drink containing Flavangenol by Suntory was
introduced early this year and became a big hit.
KEY SUCCESS FACTORS
1
  • Toyo Shinyaku approached Suntory
  • Suntory has a strong RD team which can research
    and publish the antioxidant ability of
    Flavangenol.

2
National TV commercial by Suntory was successful
to increase the brand recognition and let
consumers have an image that Flavangenol is
effective to keep the clear blood flow
As Flavangenol is now well known, Toyo Shinyaku
expands its application to cosmetics.
30
FloraGLO by Kemin Foods Asia
DESCRIPTION FloraGLO is a nutritional ingredient
which is extracted from marigold and contains a
high amount of lutein which supports eye health
and helps prevent AMD. Lutein is one of the
major ingredients for eye support dietary
supplements and Kemin is the market leader.
KEY SUCCESS FACTORS
1
  • Distribution and education are done in separate
    organizations
  • Koyo Mercantile is responsible for distribution
    and Kemin is responsible for education of
    FloraGLO to professionals and consumers

2
