A New Commercial Cooperation between Enzymotec and Farmacias Similares® extends K·REAL® Krill Oil sales to México with the SIMIKRILL® brand.
Enzymotec, a leading supplier of lipid based solutions, is expanding into the Mexican market with its K•REAL® krill oil due to a commercial cooperation with Farmacias Similares®, who is launching SIMIKRILL®, which will be widely available throughout over 5,000 of their outlets in the country.
Víctor González Herrera, Commercial Director of Farmacias Similares®, the largest pharmacy chain in South America said: "We have seen a growing need for krill oil, since it provides beneficial omega 3 solution with an improved consumer experience – smaller capsules, reduced fishy burps and better absorption of omega 3 fatty acids into target organs. We believe supplying our customers with SIMIKRILL® krill oil, will achieve one of our goals, which is to bring innovative and quality products available to everyone."
