With its pharmacy brands BENU, Apotek 1, Rowlands Pharmacy and Help Net, the Vekade group successfully operates more than 2,700 of its own pharmacies in 14 European countries. Each year, our employees take care of around 160 million customers and dispense more than 375 million medicine packages to patients. We see our employees as our most important resource: By providing excellent service and healthcare advice, they care for millions of satisfied patients throughout Europe – every day.

For many patients, pharmacies are the first point of contact when it comes to health issues. They come for specialist advice from our competent and experienced employees, and to obtain medicine and various other health-related products.

The Vekade group’s four large pharmacy brands are present in several European countries. We work tirelessly to serve the population with a timely, reliable, community-based supply of pharmaceuticals.

We want to grow

The VEKADE group wants to continue achieving growth in a profitable, responsible manner. We are always searching for new pharmacies for our retail chains in areas where we currently have a presence. And we also looking to tap into new markets. Throughout Europe we are implementing sustainable expansion plans, geared toward specific regional and national factors. For this reason, we are always on the lookout for new business locations for sale or rent.

If you are interested in a collaboration or have definite plans to sell or let, contact our Corporate Retail Real Estate department directly.

Our pharmacy customers in wholesale also benefit continually from the experience we are gaining in retail with our own pharmacies. For example, we share successful marketing measures directly with individual pharmacies through our pharmacy cooperation programmes.

Our pharmacy brands

Our pharmacies in 15 different countries are operating regionally under the umbrella of our four large pharmacy brands: BENU, Apotek 1 Rowlands Pharmacy and Help Net. Their histories are as individual and varied as each of the countries in which we are present, with a success story we can look back on with pride.
