One Pharma is the brainchild of a group of physicians who, in February 1996, wanted to have a company that can provide products that will pass the quality and affordability requirements physicians desired. Together with some prominent businessmen and a former executive of a multinational company, One Pharma was born.
The founders sought for a manufacturer that conformed to their standards. World-class Hizon Laboratories was selected to initially supply One Pharma with several pharmaceutical products.
In April 1996, the company was formally incorporated as One Pharma Co., Inc. with an authorized capitalization of 20 million pesos.
After several years in business, One Pharma stands as one of the most reliable distributors of quality pharmaceutical products in the local market. It has established its presence especially in key cities nationwide through its progressive deployment of sales and promotions representatives.
As envisioned by the founders of the company, the main business of One Pharma is the marketing and distribution of pharmaceutical products, both ethical and non-prescription. Initially, One Pharma started marketing top quality products from Hizon Laboratories and since then has added more products from Apotex, Canada’s largest pharmaceutical company. These products are with proven bioavailability and most are bioequivalent with the originator products from other multinational companies. Since then One Pharma has added products from Korea United Pharm, Synmedic Laboratories and PT Indofarma.
One Pharma is also marketing “over-the-counter” type products. Jamieson of Canada, which is a leading manufacturer of naturally-sourced vitamins, supply these added products to One Pharma.
