In Document No.19942/QLD-CL dated November 27, 2019, the DAV asked Saigon Pharmaceutical Company (Sapharco) – the importer of the medicine – to work with suppliers and distributors to send a notice of withdrawal to wholesalers and retailers within 48 hours since the document was signed.

Sapharco will then have to submit a report on the retrieval of Young II Captopril tablets to the DAV in 18 days since the signing date of the document.

Established in 1975, Sapharco has always ranked among the companies which have the biggest annual turnover in the Vietnamese pharmaceutical industry (consistently above VND1 trillion [$43.48 million]), making up 10 per cent of the nationwide pharmaceutical market.

The firm’s scope of activities includes the trading and distribution of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and raw materials for manufacturing western formulations and herbal medicines. The company has built up a distribution network that covers the whole nation, reaching all hospitals, pharmacies, and health stations. Along with the network of distribution is a competent contingent of staff who are assigned to provide everyone with medicine.

Sapharco aims to become a leading pharmaceutical in Vietnam with the most modern technology and a nationwide distribution network.
