Nikhilesh Kalra
President of SSP Co. LTD and
General Manager Consumer Healthcare Japan

Since its establishment in 1765, SSP has used the power of Science for the benefit of Society through our innovative products and loved market-leading brands.

Since 2017, SSP became a Sanofi company - a member of the Sanofi Group, a global healthcare leader headquartered in Paris, France. SSP operates as the Japanese branch of Sanofi Consumer Healthcare, one of the top 3 consumer healthcare companies in the world with a presence in 150 countries. At SSP, we aim to bring together Sanofi’s Global expertise, scale and international ways of working with a deep knowledge of our consumers in Japan.  

We are in a period of rapid change. By 2030, 1 in 3 people in Japan will be above the age of 65. As our society ages, there will be an increased need for health solutions and a reduction in the working population in Japan including Doctors and Nurses. Against this backdrop, Self-Care and Health literacy will become increasingly important. At SSP, we are committed to contribute to improving people's health and quality of life by developing innovative self-care solutions such as "Switch OTC drugs," and by using our loved brands to educate consumers so that they can make better, more informed decisions about their Health. We’re also deeply concerned about the future of our planet and are committed to redesigning our products and operations to minimize their impact on future generations. As an employer, we’re committed to creating a diverse and inclusive organization where everyone can bring their best selves to work.

Through our purpose-led brands and science, we are committed to making healthcare as simple as it should be, so our consumers in Japan and beyond can take better care of their health and well-being every day.
