After the State Monopoly

Pharmacy Chain Comes to Sweden

The private pharmacy chain Celesio is preparing to establish itself at the Swedish market. In a press release, Celesio announces its intention to open up to 100 branches in the years to come. Some 400 pharmacists are to be recruited.

Celesio is currently operating businesses in 28 countries and would be – according to the company itself – the first private pharmacy chain at the Swedish market since the abolishment of the country’s pharmacy monopoly in July. (ah)
