How did it start?

As a distributor of Feed and Food ingredients, it was a natural progression for Chr. Olesen to expand into distributing ingredients for the veterinary pharmaceutical industry. The journey of distributing pharmaceutical ingredients started in 2006. Since then, we have further gone into the human API market and later into exclusive intermediates for pharmaceutical applications.

What do we do now?

Today, Chr. Olesen’s Pharma division is divided into three distinct business areas: human and veterinary APIs, and exclusive intermediates for pharmaceutical applications. We have offices in Denmark, Belgium, Germany, and the USA, and we primarily distribute our products to Europe, Africa, Brazil, and the US. The pharmaceutical business is currently led by Managing Partner Tobias Facklam.

Looking into the future

Our goal is to continuously meet the changing needs of our customers within the pharmaceutical industry. We stay up-to-date on the best products available in the market and continuously monitor the industry for new product possibilities. We are confident that by investing in innovation, quality, and customer service, we will continue to be a reliable distributor in the international pharmaceutical ingredients industry.
