    About Glico

    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.

    * Some products in the portfolio may be available in Japan only.

    About Pocky

    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, 2022 to cater to the evolving consumption pattern and purchasing behavior in Southeast Asia. With growing health consciousness, more and more consumers are seeking healthier choices that are guilt-free. In response to this demand, we added fiber into the pretzel of Pocky, providing additional health benefits. Furthermore, we have introduced wholewheat into the pretzel, resulting in a lighter and crispier texture. To achieve the right balance of sweetness, we have adjusted the cream-to-biscuit ratio, enhancing the unique aroma of the chocolate flavors while maintaining a rich and smooth taste.

    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 Association1.

    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.
