The Budapest Business Journal reported about Pharmafarm losing its license to operate this summer. The Romanian authorities revoked the license on June 21, in a response to what it ruled was a breach of good distribution practice.

In a press release issued today, Richter says that most of the companyʼs warehousing facilities have already re-obtained their licenses.

Pharmafarm (including six regional warehouses) was acquired by Richter in 2007. As of the end of 2017, it employed more than 500 people.
