Strengths and Features of the Medical-Related Business
1Dispensing Pharmacy Business

2Contributing to Community Healthcare
In the pharmacy business, we aim for all its dispensing pharmacies to function like a "family pharmacy" with solid roots in their communities. We are reinforcing functions by focusing our efforts on strengthening home care service capabilities, hiring and utilizing dietitians in a move toward preventative medical care, and acquiring “health support pharmacy” accreditation. We aim to obtain certifications as community cooperation pharmacies and specialized medical institution cooperation pharmacies, while responding to the revised Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Act that came into effect in August 2021.

In our pharmacies, we sell OTC pharmaceuticals and health foods handled by the Self-medication products wholesaling business, and private brand products from APOCREAT Corporation. In addition, we offer dietary and nutritional consultations by registered dietitians.
