About Us

Alpha Pharm was established in 1968 and started as a distribution channel for a group of Independent Community Pharmacies for the benefit of leveraging collective buying power.This co-operative partnership built by strength in unity set the foundation for the company to grow and become the Industry Giant it is today. Alpha Pharm remains the only true Independent Pharmaceutical Group in South Africa with the largest Community Pharmacy Franchise Network and national footprint.

The group merged its regional structures in February 2015 through the investment of Shogun Und Finanz, further strengthening its position and securing the future of Independent Pharmacy and allied Healthcare in South Africa.
