The History of SteriPharm Export
In 1964, the pharmacist Dr. Dieter Schöne opened the pharmacy “Park Apotheke” in Berlin. He previously worked as a production manager in the pharmaceutical industry and had already developed a number of products there. In 1981 Dr. Schöne founded the company Steripharm Pharmazeutische Produkte GmbH, while running the pharmacy simultaneously. Since then he has developed various products with his experience as a production manager.
In the beginning of the 1990s Dr. Schöne recognised the importance of folic acid for the human organism and consistently developed folic acid products, which were further optimized over the following years. In 2002, the product Folio® was awarded “best medical product” in the category “products with folic acid” in Germany.
Since then, SteriPharm Pharmazeutische Produkte GmbH & Co. KG has steadily expanded its range of folic acid products for women who want to have children, pregnant women and nursing mothers and a growing number of other applications.
The company SteriPharm Export GmbH was founded in 2004 and is responsible for the export. Since then, the proven folic acid products are available in more and more countries. Our packs are optimized for the international market and are available in many languages.
By now, based on the number of pregnancies in Germany, around 45% of pregnant women in Germany take Folio® and / or Folio Forte® as a dietary supplement.
“Less is often more”. We align ourselves by this short guiding principle. A woman needs only a few supplements during her pregnancy, when planning to become pregnant, and during lactation, in addition to a balanced diet, so that adequate nutrition is provided.
A large number of additional vitamins and proteins are not necessary. Our products focus only on the essential supplements and are available over the counter.
We attach great importance to first-class production. Our products are high quality. They are made by experienced traditional manufacturers in Germany.
A healthy diet of women who are pregnant or planning for a family prevents malformations and diseases in newborns. The cost in the public health system could be significantly reduced if more attention was paid to the balanced diet before and during pregnancy rather than later raising the significantly higher healing costs in children with malformations.
We have therefore set ourselves the goal of using our expertise in products with folic acid and B vitamins to inform as many women as possible before and during pregnancy, as well as during lactation and to provide with our products.
