Keeping essential
medicines available

We are committed to making high-quality essential medicines always available on time to patients in the Netherlands.

We do this in a sustainable way:
We keep the value chain as short as possible, producing medicines close to home whenever possible, keeping ample stocks, and carrying out quality control in the Netherlands with the help of reliable partners around the corner.

This is how we contribute to the sustainable and reliable availability of high-quality generic medicines for millions of patients in the Netherlands.

We stand for sustainable availability
of generic drugs

1

Short value chain

  • We work as much as possible with Dutch and European suppliers and partners.
  • Together with our local partners, we strive to produce as much as possible close to home.
  • For raw materials, ingredients, and materials with long delivery times from distant countries, we keep ample stocks together.
  • Our short value chain leads to reliable availability and is economical, flexible and sustainable.

Production close to home

  • We strive to produce as much as possible close to home. This applies to the raw materials and ingredients contained in our products, our packaging materials, and our intermediate and final products.
  • By jointly holding sufficient stocks for raw materials and materials with long delivery times from distant countries, we can deliver reliably and respond appropriately to sudden changes.
  • Especially for a small competitive market like the Netherlands, this is of great importance.

Reliable quality

  • The quality control of all our products is carried out close to home by a certified laboratory in the Netherlands.
  • All our local partners are GMP/GDP certified.
  • Our customer service and pharmacovigilance desk is permanently available.
