We supply pharmaceutical ingredients in these categories:
Comprehensive auditing of excipient suppliers can be a challenge for drug and nutritional supplement manufacturers. Excipient manufacturers can be faced with an enormous volume of audit requests. Many have limited audit dates available, and some have begun to charge fees to perform audits. Univar's innovative Audit Library helps customers navigate the supplier auditing process. Univar's broad excipient portfolio from respected producers allows Univar to deliver cost-effective answers to excipient audit challenges.
Univar partnered with Aarti Group to provide high quality Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) to European pharmaceutical manufacturers. Aarti's state-of-the-art manufacturing plants have been approved by United States and European regulators. Equipped with world-class equipment and regulatory protocols, they have been audited by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, European authorities and Canadian health authorities.
Univar, along with one of our supplier partners, introduced an alternative source for a key excipient to a strategic customer. To ensure improved flowability, the customer requested specific characteristics in the excipient that would guarantee consistent results. After several rounds of sampling and testing, the supplier was able to modify the bulk density and particle size to produce a custom grade. Univar's customer service and trusted partnership helped the customer to speed up its production process.
Univar helps the medicine go down a little easier by offering the widest variety of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients, solvents, and process aids of any supplier to the pharmaceutical industry. Pharma customers value our product portfolio and the care we take in sourcing quality ingredients. Our service offerings include reducing testing costs and providing product lot controls, change management controls, supplier management, and more.
It is great for us to work with a company like Univar, which knows the European API market so well. Their expertise has been invaluable in helping us meet regulatory requirements and their comprehensive pan-European distribution network is very attractive for us.
