Industry Foothold

Rafarma is positioned to capitalize and grow from two significant variables saddling the Eastern European Pharmaceuticals market: growing demand and a struggling economy. The population of elderly citizens throughout Eastern Europe has grown alongside the region's economic turmoil.

These factors equate to increased favorability from both healthcare providers and individuals pursuing high-quality yet affordable pharmaceutical products. In addition, Russian government mandates requiring physicians to use Rafarma products create a solid and unique niche within the pharmaceutical industry.

If the progress continues as the government plans, the Russian pharmaceutical industry by 2020 could contribute 50% of drugs in circulation, 80% of which would be domestically developed.

Rafarma is on track to saturate the Russian market as a European-based specialist pharmaceutical producer. Its initiatives don't stop there - the company is also securing its foothold penetrate international markets such as Brazilian and the Southeast Asian sub-continent.




Manufacturing and Distribution Facility

Rafarma Pharmaceuticals has invested considerable funds in building a state-of-the-art production facility in the economic development zone in Terbuny, Lipetsk Region, approximately 300 km south of Moscow.

This multi-profile pharmaceutical plant has the capability and space to produce all types and forms of medical drugs of various pharmacological groups.

The project has been supported by the government of Lipetsk region of Russia, Ministry of Health of Russian Federation, and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russian Federation, which listed Rafarma Pharmaceuticals as one of the leading and most prospective projects in the modern Russian pharmaceutical and medical industry.
