Ending the Pharmacy Monopoly

Published tisdag 10 juni 2008 kl 11.56
Per Båtelssen

Although the government recently delayed the deregulation of Sweden’s pharmacy monopoly by 6 months, the state-owned Apoteket company is already getting ready to meet competition.

At the moment the company’s 900 stores are the only place in Sweden where you can buy prescription or even non-prescription drugs.

That means only one store where you can buy remedies such as aspirin for every 10,000 people here. But as of July 1 next year, their market domination will be over. Kris Boswell spoke to chairman of Apoteket’s board, Per Båtelsson.
