2020 composition of net sales

Hard candy
Hard candy market share: No. 1 (19.8%, *Intage SRI, Jan. - Dec. 2020)

We continuously offer product brands loved by many people, including our long-selling Kanro Ame which also became our company name, Kenko Nodoame brand which was the first to establish the cough drop category in the confectionery market, and the No. 1 milk candy brand Kin no Milk.

Gummy market share: No.2 (16.5%, *Intage SRI, Jan. - Dec. 2020)

Our mainstay brand Puré Gummy offers a fruit-like texture and sweet and sour flavor that created a new gummy market for adults. The Candemina Gummy, popular among children and male consumers, is also growing into a popular brand trailing behind Puré Gummy.
With the launch of the new gummy production lines in 2020, we will strive to further expand sales.
