Our aim is to increase our current sales to 200 000 units with a montly turnover of $3.2 million. This target is achievable within 6 months.
We are cuurently supplying to all major pharmaceutical wholesalers in South Africa who in turn distribute to most pharmacies throughout the country. Our products are registered with the South African Medicine Control Council and are paid by most medical aid schemes. All products are manufatured in a lab under strict GMP conditions.
As mentioned, 70% of our (and the African) population use these products on a daily basis as "immune boosters".
Our product has been on the market since 2002 and is therefore well known as a brand.
