Ingredients company Unigen Pharmaceuticals has expanded its sales presence in Europe and Latin America by signing agency and distribution agreements with six international corporate partners. The company is also planning to sign up a distributor in France before the end of this month.
The six European partners are: Lake Chemical in the United Kingdom; CH Erbshloh in Germany, Poland, Austria and Switzerland; Bionord in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway; Pharmalogic in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Italy, Greece and Poland; Zeus Quimica in Spain and Portugal; and Will & Co in Belgium and the Netherlands. In addition, Unigen has expanded into the Brazilian market after signing up local firm Ayalla Marketing.
"Many international companies are answering the call for finished products made with novel and efficacious active ingredients that are backed by sound science," said Derek Hall, Unigen's chief executive. The company, which specialises in the development of ingredients from botanical sources such as ginseng, soy, rice and aloe vera, indicated that its product range would be rolled out by the new distributors rapidly.
