PRESERVATION OF TRADITION
KO DA Pharmaceutical was founded in 1980 and established in Ping-Zhen Industrial Park, trading as Baishou Pharmaceutical Company in Taiwan. Dr Hasegawa, the renowned pharmacist from Japan, was recruited as the factory’s first director to bring in Japan’s advanced granulation technology and to build a factory in accordance to strict Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and international standards. KO DA’s mission is to continuously innovate while remaining true to its founding philosophy “Preservation of Tradition, Innovation for People”.
