The MediRite chain of pharmacies was established in order to meet the growing health and wellness needs of the consumer by healthcare professionals at affordable prices.
Our unique ability to pass exceptional savings onto the consumer is the result of reduced operational costs which stems from trading within the supermarket. With 141 in-store dispensaries currently operating throughout South Africa and Swaziland, our goal of bringing better healthcare to the public is being realised. The continued support of our customers and local communities is playing a large role in our ability to operate successfully and to expand our quality healthcare services further across the country, with the opening of additional instore pharmacies planned in the near future.
Our healthcare professionals place a large emphasis on quality service and compassionate consideration for each and every patient and are not only knowledgeable and experienced, but dedicated to making a real difference.
In December 2009 MediRite acquired Transfarm Pharmaceutical Wholesalers which sells and distributes a wide range of pharmaceutical products and surgical equipment to hospitals and clinics, dispensing doctors and veterinary surgeons as well as to private and corporate pharmacies. Transfarm, which continues as an independent business, greatly reduces MediRite’s dependence on other wholesalers and by the end of the reporting period some 90% of the chain’s stock requirements were
already being channelled through Transfarm.
