About us

Established in 1997, Probiotec Limited has quickly achieved a reputation for innovation, customer service and rapid response to market opportunities.

COMPANY PROFILE

PROBIOTEC’S GROWTH HAS BEEN FUELLED BY STRONG ORGANIC GROWTH AND STRATEGIC ACQUISITIONS ALONG WITH RELATIONSHIPS WITH GLOBAL MARKET LEADERS THAT WANT TO CONDUCT BUSINESS WITH A COMPANY THAT MAINTAINS HIGH LEVELS OF QUALITY AND INNOVATION.

Since beginning operations in 1997, Probiotec has quickly emerged as a leading manufacturer, marketer and distributor of a diverse, high quality range of prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals, complementary medicines and consumer health products.

Listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) since November 2006, our Australian owned and operated company has built an enviable reputation for developing innovative new pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical products which not only address researched consumer needs, but also succeed in gaining the clinical approvals necessary to respond rapidly to market opportunities, both domestically and internationally.

What separates Probiotec from other trusted contract manufacturers is that we invest heavily in Research and Development, equip our production facilities with the latest new technologies, employ chemists and microbiologists of the highest calibre and maintain Quality Assurance standards that are second to none.

We also have an intimate understanding of the process and dynamics of developing formulations (and brands) for the retail market that deliver margins that optimise return-on-investment.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

Environmental activities

Probiotec is committed to supporting the environment and the community in which it operates within.

The Australian Packaging Covenant (formerly known as the National Packaging Covenant) was formed to minimise environmental impact from the disposal of used packaging. This is achieved via improvement in packaging design, production processes and facilitating the re-use and recycling of used packaging materials.

As part of an ongoing commitment to protecting the environment, Probiotec continues to be a signatory of the Australian Packaging Covenant.

Sustainable Packaging Guidelines are being adopted for our existing and new products, to minimise the environmental impact of packaging materials, where possible.

The company utilises recycling collection points within our facilities, to reduce the impact on landfill. Cardboard, white paper and commingle are being recycled.
