Company

Originating from the merger of various German medium-sized pharmaceutical companies, some with 110 years of experience, Bernita Pharma are committed to providing high-quality medicines on a readily available and affordable basis.

About Bernita Pharma

Bernita Pharma was founded in 2008 and established itself as one of the most important pharmaceutical companies within a very short time. The company is run by management as an owner-managed medium-sized enterprise.

Our product range is focused on well-known original products alongside a wide selection of the most important substances in the generics market. In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of herbal medicines, some of which have been proven for decades, as well as modern medical devices and other aids.

We are always here for you: dependability is one of the most important requirements in the health care sector. High quality, the availability of medicines and overall transparency are the three main pillars we all stand by in taking care of people’s health. This is ultimately driven by you: our customers, doctors and pharmacists.

You motivate us to demonstrate our ‘Made in Europe’ quality standard every day, across all of our production sites. Our primary goal is your satisfaction and that means: punctual deliveries and the highest quality. We achieve this with our six modern ‘state of the art’ development and manufacturing factories in Germany .
We continue to successfully focus on Germany for our core business. This also provides us the opportunity for consistent control and the required proximity to the market – allowing us to react swiftly to requirements at any given time.

Unified quality standards apply at all of our production sites, which are subject to continuous control. We take special pride in protecting our employees and the environment, which is why we work to the stringent ‘Good Manufacturing Practice’ (GMP) guidelines.

The Bernita Pharma Group is growing: we are currently represented with offices in 13 countries. From here, we manage other brands and sell medicines under our own brand.

Our philosophy is simple: we produce medicines which are both high quality and cost-effective for patients.  “Because every person has a right to health” – as a pharmaceutical company, we want to help keep health affordable.

Health is one of our most important commodities, but preserving or restoring it can be very costly nowadays. Long development times and intensive basic research contribute to the high price level of new pharmaceutical substances. It faces high cost pressure due to tight budgets for medical treatment expenses. Therefore, it is our goal to produce cost-effective and high quality medicines so that they remain affordable and available to all who need them. Not only does that benefit the individuals, it also supports the long-term future of our health care system.

In order to reach our goal, we have chosen a business model covering three primary areas.

The first is the marketing of medicines: we provide highly effective substances, whose patents have expired, as generics – at prices that are affordable for everyone. But we also offer original products and a wide range of so-called OTC products (‘over the counter’: available prescription-free from pharmacies).

 

And finally: we work on a variety of our own galenic and generic developments, actively shaping the future at the same time.

Our focus on people in need all over the country and support for selected organisations with financial and in-kind donations has been part of our identity and our company philosophy for many years. As well as being active in the social sector, we also support sport, education and culture on a regional level.

A project particularly close to our hearts is the Caritas Medical Van.  As our headquarter is located in Berlin, we really value the importance of supporting and taking responsibility for the citizens of our local area. In order to support the work of the voluntary doctors, nurses and social workers, Bernita Pharma sponsors the Caritas Medical Van for the valuable and essential work they carry out.
 The van helps homeless people, those without health insurance or patients who feel too ashamed to visit the doctor’s surgery. The Caritas Medical Van is there to help them. The van fitted out as a simple treatment room and has been in use since 1995.
 The team are committed to seeking out people in the places they live: emergency shelters, soup kitchens, warm rooms, train stations and in-crowd locations. On Monday and Tuesday afternoons, the van sets off looking for homeless people in need.
