At Cofares we value our experience and capacity to innovate at the service of members, customers, suppliers and society, generating solid links and trusting relationships that drive the health ecosystem.
Cofares was established as a cooperative in 1944 formed entirely by pharmaceutical capital the main purpose of which is guarantee the spanish pharmaceutical model: pharmaceutical distribution supplies all authorised medicines in the country and defers resources from profitable operations to “cover” unprofitable ones as rural pharmacies: it is a joint and several distribution model that ensures equity in patient access to medicinal products. Our market share is upper 29% what stands us as the largest health cooperative in Spain.
Cofares is working every day to offer its users the best retail offer in the industry with a clear category management approach with leading and seasonal products and exclusive discounts per laboratory. Exclusive offers such as Generic Option, OTC, Top Selection, management of the health and beauty and OTC categories with Nexo.
Cofares provides the pharmacy with tools to develop loyalty schemes so that it can attract new health users, in any support, and increase retail sales. In order to achieve these goals, the organisation Educo Academy seeks to provide accurate information and quality training tailored to the real needs of all players in the health sector. An area for Training, Innovation and Co-creation that provides the sector with high-impact professionalisation and specialisation programmes in different methodologies, in collaboration with the best schools and universities. Our own brand, Farline, promotes a healthy way of life; Farline has included new products in its catalogue (Farline Eco), a category in which articles made of organic, non-pollutant materials are produced. Recently, we have created a innovation HUB to promote health technology.
We work quickly and proactively to identify health solutions that have a positive impact on people.
For this reason, we want to go one step further as a company. So that we become a global health agent that, in addition to supplying drugs to the population, facilitates access to innovative products (and devices), services or tools for a more conscious and responsible health.
We are focused on:
- Offering new opportunities for people to have healthy and productive lives, regardless of their age
- Helping people with chronic diseases to manage and live with it in the best possible way.
And we believe that we have the perfect ally to achieve it: the pharmacies, 100% sanitary health centers, in the first line of contact with users, and that will be the best way to bring innovation to the hands of people.
