We accelerate the new Africa

Our Group

Missionpharma has joined forces with the strongest and most progressive companies in the pharmaceutical, retail, automotive and equipment-distribution industries in Africa. Since 2012, we have been a proud member of Eurapharma and the CFAO Group – a multibillion-dollar group owned by Toyota Tsusho Corporation. This makes us stronger and better equipped to continue to support our customers with sustainable solutions for many years ahead.

The CFAO Group has a strong presence on the African continent as a distributor of brands within retail and equipment. Eurapharma is one of the leading distributors of branded-originator pharmaceuticals to the private market in Africa. Our partnership opens the way for a series of mutually beneficial business synergies and opportunities, and provides us with direct access to a comprehensive distribution network in Africa.

A shared vision

We share the vision of being important contributors to accelerating the new Africa within a range of industries. Without a doubt, Missionpharma is much better equipped for strengthening tomorrow’s healthcare in Africa as part of Eurapharma and the CFAO Group.

Christian Overgaard, CEO, Missionpharma Group

Expanding our operational reach

Missionpharma has always delivered flexibility and efficiency in everything we do. By being part of a larger group, we are now backed by global resources and financial strength, while our customer-oriented focus remains the same.

Besides supporting our business in taking on future challenges, this partnership enables Missionpharma to further establish and develop our important wholesale operations in Africa, and to extend our operational reach.
