● Outline of the presentation


“The Galapagos Approach – Keys to Cultivating a Mature Market and Strategy for Differentiation” Like the Galapagos Islands, where species evolved in unique ways, the market for chocolate in Japan has distinctive attributes. For example, the market associated with distributable confections is an arena of fierce competition and is brimming with new products each season. Products are improved and withdrawn in rapid succession. For this reason, confectionery manufacturers, our clients, are constantly looking for diverse types of chocolate offering a variety of flavors, aromas, hues, textures, and features. In his presentation, Mr. Ebihara also commented on the business model constructed by the Fuji Oil Group to meet these particular wants and needs.
