Pharmaceutical Industry

The $232 Billion US Pharmaceutical Industry is made up of both over the counter (OTC) products and prescription drugs (RX).  The Pharmaceutical Industry develops, produces, and markets drugs that are licensed for use as medications. Pharmaceutical companies are allowed to deal in both generic and/or brand medications. They are subject to a variety of laws and regulations regarding the patenting, testing, ensuring safety, efficacy and marketing of drugs.  Given this, the need for a consistent supply of ethical ingredients from reliable suppliers is critical.  Ampak meets this need and sells a wide range of functional ingredients to this Industry including products in the following functional groups:

  • Actives

  • Amino Acids

  • Antioxidants

  • Cellulosics

  • Custom Blends

  • High Intensity Sweeteners

  • Humectants

  • Hydrocolloids / Thickeners

  • Minerals

  • Phosphates

  • Preservatives

  • Vitamins

  • Other Specialty Ingredients
