The Catena-Fildas Group in 2021 reached a total turnover of EUR 2 billion from drugstores and distribution, rising by 8% year-on-year, according to ZF calculations based on data provided by the company, reads an article published by Ziarul Financiar.
“2020 promises to be a year filled with challenges, the volatility characteristic to the last two years of pandemic being now amplified by the effects of the rampant inflation we are facing”, said the representatives of the pharmaceutical group.
