Who we are
Portfolio Pharmaceuticals Botswana, established in 2009 is a manufacturer of oral Pharmaceutical Products (Medicine) in Botswana . The major objective of the company is to improve the supply of medicine throughout Botswana and possibly within the SADC region. The company has been given license to practice by Drug Regulatory Unit of the Ministry of Health of Botswana. Granting of the licence was based on World Health Organization (WHO) Good Manufacturing Procedures (GMP) guidelines. We comply to all statutory and regulatory requirements and our doors are open to all regulatory inspections for compliance. At Portfolio we believe that local production increases availability resulting in affordability and better access to the all-important medicines for the public. For over two years now in operation, the Company has been fulfilling its mandate by adequately supplying the nation of Botswana with medicine thus ensuring availability and affordability.
What we do
Our state of the art facility is designed and built for packaging and manufacturing of oral dosage form pharmaceutical products. It is equipped with modern technology for formulation and packing of tablets, capsules and liquids. As the first phase; our current activities include packaging of tablets from bulk material. Plans are at advanced stage to move to the next phase of manufacturing from semifinished goods (e.g. pre-mixed powders and granules) ready for compression into tablets and filling of capsules followed by subsequent packaging. The ultimate aim is starting from raw materials all the way to packaging, which entails full manufacturing. We boast the Botswana Government procurement entity (Central Medical Stores) as our major client which we have been diligently servicing through tender contracts. We also look to export our products within the region.
Due to the nature of operations, we have three types of employees namely; permanent, long term contracts as well as short term contracts, a total of which can go up to 70 employees or more during full production periods.
