We contribute to better health and improved quality of life

At Karo Pharma we care about people’s well-being and offer increased access to effective treatments for the ageing population of the Western world. Today we have a broad product portfolio, divided on three primary categories: Prescription (Rx) drugs, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and self-care products, as well as other health-related products. These products include both established brands and innovative up-and-comers. The past few years the company has increased its focus on prescription drugs and OTC products that are sold directly to customers by pharmacies and retail stores, while the other health-related products include medical devices used by the health care industry. The common denominator for all categories is that they include products that contribute to better health and improved quality of life for the users.
