Missionpharma has joined forces with the strongest and most progressive companies in the pharmaceutical, retail, automotive and equipment-distribution industries in Africa. Since 2012, we have been a proud member of Eurapharma and the CFAO Group – a multibillion-dollar group owned by Toyota Tsusho Corporation. This makes us stronger and better equipped to continue to support our customers with sustainable solutions for many years ahead.
The CFAO Group has a strong presence on the African continent as a distributor of brands within retail and equipment. Eurapharma is one of the leading distributors of branded-originator pharmaceuticals to the private market in Africa. Our partnership opens the way for a series of mutually beneficial business synergies and opportunities, and provides us with direct access to a comprehensive distribution network in Africa.
We share the vision of being important contributors to accelerating the new Africa within a range of industries. Without a doubt, Missionpharma is much better equipped for strengthening tomorrow’s healthcare in Africa as part of Eurapharma and the CFAO Group.
