In just seven years, we created the ninth largest network in sales by Abrafarma – Brazilian Association of Pharmacy and Drugstore Networks and achieved a leadership position in our main areas of operation, being among the main chains in the Federal District and Rio de Janeiro.
We are part of the Profarma Group, which started its trajectory in 1961, with Profarma Distribuidora de Produtos – currently the second largest distributor in the country -, a company listed on the Novo Mercado B3 since 2006. And because we are part of this Company, we enjoy some competitive advantages of this integrated model: distribution and retail. Among them: daily deliveries; less need for working capital, as we use the distributor’s inventory; taking advantage of administrative synergies, through the SSC – Shared Services Center; low Capex demand for distribution centers; tax efficiency and increased bargaining power with suppliers – together, we are the third largest buyer in the national private pharmaceutical sector.
