History

1984 - ESTABLISHMENT

Realizing the need for qualified raw materials in the Brazilian pharmaceutical market, Giuseppe Frangioni establishes Blanver. It quickly becomes one of the main market suppliers, due to a high investment in technology and technical support.

1988 - INTERNATIONALIZATION

Already well established in the Brazilian market, Blanver starts the internationalization process, with a strategy of exclusive distributors for each territory.

1995 - FOOD SEGMENT

Another important milestone was when we started exploring the food sector. With some adaptations, microcrystalline cellulose supplied for pharmaceutical products could be used in several food products such as ice cream, dairy beverages, heavy cream, among others.

1996 - PHARMACEUTICAL UNIT

With globalization and the growing international competition, Blanver was already supplying the Brazilian market with a synergic and innovative product line complementing its portfolio, and this year it establishes its pharmaceutical unit, offering medication manufacturing outsourcing services, with intensive and high quality technical support.

1998 - OFFICE IN EUROPE

With the goal to explore opportunities in Europe and later in Asia, Africa and Oceania, we opened an office in Spain.

2000 - BLANVER USA

At the turn of the century Blanver started operating in the United States, the largest pharmaceutical market. With the opening of the office and four strategically located distribution centers, we started to directly offer our products to customers, supplying high quality products, prompt delivery and with local technical support.

2005 - ANTIRETROVIRAL FINISHED DOSAGE FORMULATIONS

Our start on the antiretroviral segment happened by providing outsourcing production service of HIV medications for official Brazilian labs. This year we also had the patent registration of the medicine Didanosine Enteric, developed together with research institutes.

2009 - NEW PHARMACEUTICAL UNIT

We opened a new pharmaceutical unit, with a modern structure and a larger production capacity. From a high technology and R&D investment, we began to develop our own finished dosage formulations.

2011 - 1st OWN MEDICATION

2013 - 2nd OWN MEDICATION

Launch of Blanver’s second medication – Duplivir (Tenofovir + Lamivudine), considered an innovation in HIV treatment, as it combines two APIs in one tablet.

2014 - ELECTRICITY COGENERATION PROJECT

By implementing the electricity cogeneration system we started to produce 80% of all electricity needed by our raw materials plant, resulting in one of the most important actions regarding sustainability.

2015 - STRATEGIC CHANGE

New direction for the Pharmaceutical Unit: Discontinuation of the outsourcing division and focus on development and production of our own finished dosage formulations and on the internationalization plan.
