The founder’s experience working in this sector of the country motivated me to embark on the registration and licensing of global healthcare products manufacturing in food medicine and licensing of the global healthcare administration and control authority of Ethiopia (FMHACA) as a local agent and to represent in the big government, non-government, and relief organization tenders as a commission agent in the territory of Ethiopia.

Our leadership

Leadership with extensive knowledge of the business and the market segment in which we operate: the Ethiopian pharmaceutical market. The company's leadership team is led by the manager of each department, who is also a member of the leadership team.

Technical operation

Organized by three independent technical departments: product development, regulatory affairs, and quality assurance, which are managed by the technical director.

The Regulatory affairs and product development department is composed of people who have been working for local, multinational, and international pharmaceutical companies in the registration of their products and licensing of their company in the food medicine and health care administration and control authority of Ethiopia (FMHACA) for more than 10 years.

The team coordinator and manager are among the top regulatory affairs managers in the country. The team's ability to manage further FMHACA information requests during registration is strong in two ways: their organizational skills request FMHACA almost to none (no further request has been asked from most of our partner companies), and if further information is requested, they manage it immediately on the spot, which in turn quickly facilitates the registration and licensing of pharmaceutical companies in Ethiopia through our leadership.

The procurement, storage, and distribution departments are in charge of sourcing healthcare products from reputable suppliers on a global and local scale. Under the supervision of the storage and distribution pharmacist, the warehouse manager handles the procured products in accordance with the company's storage guidelines. Invoiced products are distributed to customers in accordance with the company's standard operating procedures for product distribution.

Our tender management team: The team has extensive experience managing tenders from various government, non-government, international, and relief organization tenders.
