On February 11, 2022, the Glico Group celebrated the
100th year of its founding. In 1922, Glico’s nutritious Glico caramel
in its distinctive red box first hit the shelves of a department store. Headquartered
in Japan, Glico has since expanded into Asia Pacific, European, and North
American markets with the aspiration to stay true to its founding spirit of enhancing
people’s health through food.
Led by its well-loved confectionary brands such as
Pocky, Pretz, and Pejoy, Glico has now expanded its
portfolio* to include ice cream products, baby formula, milk products, desserts,
food ingredients, and raw materials for cosmetic and health products. Its health
and wellness offerings such as the SUNAO range of zero sucrose, low
carbohydrate food products and Almond Koka almond milk are gaining popularity
outside of Japan after becoming a hit in its domestic market.
products in the portfolio may be available in Japan only.
Since its launch in Japan in 1966, Pocky has
maintained its core concept while gradually changing its packaging and
formulation to meet the times and society. The new Pocky range was launched in
the Philippines on June 8 in 2022 to suit the changing consumption scene and
purchasing behavior in Southeast Asia. With growing health consciousness, more
and more consumers are looking for healthier choices and more guilt-free
products. In line with such willing, we added fiber into the pretzel of Pocky
which offers more health benefits. We also added wholewheat into the pretzel
which gives it a lighter and crispier texture. The rich and smooth chocolate
gives the right balance of sweetness while enhancing the unique aroma of the
chocolate flavors by adjusting the ratio of cream to biscuit.
About Pocky day
Pocky day was established in 2016 as a day to
encourage people to start sharing happiness. November 11 was chosen because the
Pocky biscuit stick resembles the number “1”. It was first organized on November
11 in 1999, the eleventh year of the Japanese Heisei era: 11/11/11. It is an
official day recognized by the Japan Anniversary Association.
We hope that Pocky day will not only become the day
to think of and appreciate the important people in your life, but also a day to
take action and make them happy.
