Karo Pharma takes aim at Europe

In a short period of time Karo Pharma has, through expanded strategic acquisitions and organic growth, become established as one of the leading specialty pharma companies in the Nordics. Our ambition is to offer products that improve people’s health and quality of life. We have a commercial focus and specialize on the sales and marketing of prescription drugs (Rx) and over the counter (OTC) products for consumers. Our products are available in over 30 countries.

At Karo Pharma we strive to be cost-conscious and opportunistic. The company is growing organically with established brands that have stable cash flows, as well as through acquisitions and investments in innovative projects with low development risk and short time to market. It is a strategy that has given us solid profitability the past few years and positions us as an attractive partner now that we aim to strengthen our presence in Europe and the rest of the world.
