Pharmacosmos 1965 - 2015
Pharmacosmos reached a significant milestone in the company history in 2015 as we mark 50 years in operation: From the humble beginnings with the entrepreneurial production of APIs in an old, reconstructed dairy to today's fully integrated pharmaceutical company.
"Looking back, there are some key milestones in our history, which I believe are the defining moments that have helped shape Pharmacosmos into the company that it is today" says Lars Christensen, MD, CEO.
These defining moments have been compiled in an anniversary booklet and simply illustrate how our history is shaping our future.
We hope you will join our celebration.

More than 1 billion people live with iron deficiency anaemia and it is the leading cause of death for an estimated 180,000 people every year. This makes it one of the largest global health challenges of our time.
