ABOUT GLAXO SMITHKLINE: o Glaxo smithkline consumer healthcare limited (GSKCH), a global nutritional healthcare company . o It came up in India in 1958 o Horlicks is the most respected brand of GSK. o It has about 21000 employees working with it. o Its first plant in INDIA was set up at NABHA. o Horlicks is the name of a company and of a malted milk hot drink, which is claimed to promote sleep when consumed at bedtime. There is, however, no evidence that malted milk directly promotes sleep, merely staves off hunger pangs that may disturb sleep. It is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline in the United Kingdom, India and Jamaica. o By far, the biggest market for Horlicks is India, where it has traditionally been marketed as 'The Great Family Nourisher.' New products have been developed specifically for India, such as alternative flavors and special formulations for young children and breast-feeding mothers. Claims by GlaxoSmithKline India in 2005 that Horlicks encourages growth and alertness in children have, however, caused some controversy. Junior Horlicks 1-2-3 is a large extension that is specially designed for pre-school children. Horlicks is also available in biscuit forms. In 2005, Horlicks Lite was also introduced targeting older consumers and does not contain any cholesterol or added sucrose.In addition,the company has introduced Cereal Bars under the name Horlicks NutriBar exclusively for India.
