Boehringer Ingelheim has become the first multinational animal health company to launch a flagship store for pet parasiticides on Tmall.com, an open business-to-consumer platform enabling businesses to reach China’s consumer market. The BI Frontline Flagship Store specialises in selling BI’s full range of pet parasiticides: Frontline®, Heartgard®, Nexgard®, Nexgard® Spectra and Broadline®. BI will also use the Tmall flagship store to educate pet owners about pet health knowledge with the store offering an online consultation service to answer questions from pet owners, and pet knowledge classes on a regular basis.
“BI launches Frontline Flagship Store on business-to-consumer platform Tmall.“
Head of BI’s Pets Business China, Bradley Kaegi, said: “Boehringer Ingelheim is a global leader in pet parasiticides segment and also an active promoter of online pet healthcare. We hope that we can better identify the needs of pet owners through the Tmall flagship store, while providing them with the best-quality pet products and services, so that we can further enhance our brand image. Together with our online presence on JD.com, we hope to encourage Boehringer Ingelheim’s online and offline customers to join us to embrace this unbounded retail era.”
