Quality Brands

One of the main pillars of Prohealth is the Pharma Division. Since its inception in 1995, Prohealth has built a strong portfolio of European pharmaceutical companies offering branded, prescription, and OTC products that includes Ursapharm, Galderma, PIAM, Italchimici, Rowa, Laboratori Plants, Discovery, ICB, Natiris, and Azevedos.

Prohealth is entrusted with the registration, importation, marketing, and distribution of the products of its parent pharmaceutical companies in Malta. Such a process necessitates a high level of expertise in each field combined with excellent teamwork between the regulatory affairs, logistic, medical representatives, and pharmacy sales teams within this fast-growing division.

Success with such an extensive portfolio requires professional and ethical, yet consistent medical detailing of the highest level to a wide variety of medical specialists that include Ophthalmologists, Paediatricians, Family Doctors, Surgeons, Respiratory Physicians, ENT specialists, Psychiatrists, Geriatricians, Orthopaedic Surgeons, Gastroenterologists and Infectious Disease Physicians, to name a few. Interaction with pharmacists and other healthcare professionals, such as nurses and mid-wives is equally important to ensure optimal standards of care and consequential high patient satisfaction at all times. The Pharma Division’s experienced and qualified team of medical representatives is today very well-structured to meet the numerous challenges that lie ahead in this fast-changing marketplace.

In late 2009 Prohealth’s Pharma Division successfully launched Ursapharm products in Libya, and following the positive results obtained, it has recently been entrusted with the introduction of Ursapharm in other developing African markets.

The name Krewel Meuselbach stands for two companies with an impressive tradition in the German pharmaceutical world: Krewel Werke and Meuselbach-Pharma. The merger of these two tradition-steeped pharmaceutical companies in 1996 gave birth to Krewel Meuselbach. Great creativity and innovative spirit have always shaped the history of both companies. The history of Krewel Werke begins in 1893 in Cologne, when the pharmacy Apotheker Krewel & Co. was founded by the pharmacist August Krewel. In 1922, Dr phil. Ernst Georg Blank took over management of the company and began production of medicinal preparations which were very successful in the German market. The foundation stone for the Krewel production facilities was laid. Following this, Dr Blank expanded the range of indications and developed other preparations of high pharmaceutical and therapeutic quality, some of which are still used in therapy today.

Krewel Meuselbach is now known as an internationally operating family company with its own production facilities and strong commitment to its German roots. These strong roots give the company strength to succeed and grow in the dynamic pharmaceutical market with its global challenges. The company therefore emphasizes German quality and strong traditions as the basis of their success. Krewel’s expertise and experience gathered over the years generates the ideas and innovations that give their products that certain touch: the most modern health products developed with the knowledge of generations – highly effective and well tolerated.

 Krewel Meuselbach’s competitive position is based on the high quality of their medicinal products and the innovative formulation development of established active ingredients. However, a quite essential aspect of the company’s philosophy is based on herbal alternatives. Long years of research and developing gentle production processes for herbal medicinal products have made the manufacture of particularly well-tolerated phytopharmaceuticals possible. For a long time, Krewel Meuselbach has been setting benchmarks in the standardisation of herbal extracts and innovative galenic processing, and in maintaining a consistently high bioavailability of the active ingredients.
