Holista CollTech: Directions for Focused Growth
In December 2009, Holista CollTech Ltd. was established as a biotechnology company and its core business was the production of ovine collagen and Kacip Fatimah extracts. The ovine collagen was used mainly in a broad range of food, health supplements, cosmetics, and medical products, while Kacip Fatimah extracts were ingredients for food and supplements products. Holista CollTech's corporate vision was to be a global player in the multi-billion dollar collagen and herb extract markets. However, it faced fierce competition in the collagen market which was already dominated by a number of large multinational firms, and in the herb extract market in which competition was becoming increasingly intense due to the rising number of imitators. This was a challenging situation for Holista CollTech Ltd. since these competitions could prevent the company from achieving its objective to increase its control in these two markets. This case provides the opportunity to discuss Holista's competitive environment and internal elements. The case analyst will recommend appropriate strategies to the newly appointed Chief Executive Officer.
