About Varichem Pharmaceuticals


Varichem Pharmaceuticals is a wholly Zimbabwean, privately owned company established in 1985.  Varichem manufactures and markets a   wide range of quality generic pharmaceuticals and related products.

Varichem was born in 1985 out of the awareness of the acute, sometimes critical, need for reliable cost effective health care products often seriously lacking in the delivery of medical care in Zimbabwe, a country which had been dominated by the heavy weight pharmaceutical multinationals. The entrance of Varichem into the health care business signaled a new era in the whole pharmaceutical market by changing the rules of the game.
