Pharmacies/Retail Pharmacy – our core business

Our Pharmacies Services Unit operates the largest pharmacy network in Switzerland. It comprises 372 own and joint-venture pharmacies with more than 100,000 customer contacts every day. The unit supports and relieves the pharmacies with centralised back-office functions, allowing them to fulfil their important role as the first point of contact for health and well-being issues. 

Galenica has an excellent distribution network for the sale of its own exclusive products and partner brands in the form of Amavita, Sun Store and Coop Vitality (joint venture with Coop). In addition, Careproduct offers efficient solutions to support and improve mobility for elderly and disabled persons.
