The history of the PharmaNutra Group

The history of the PharmaNutra Group was founded from the vision of two brothers, Andrea and Roberto Lacorte, who, in the early 2000s, decided to put together their scientific and commercial insights to change the way people approach health and well-being.

Our commitment

The PharmaNutra Group is currently one of the most appreciated Italian companies in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical sector, thanks to products made with innovative and patented technologies. A forward-looking business, strengthened by a continuous and increasingly intense Research & Development activity and a constant overseas expansion. A business capable of growing and establishing itself also in the field of sport, through sponsorships of excellence, with the full awareness that at the base of every company, there must be strong financial soundness.

“PharmaNutra was founded from a dream: that of improving personal well-being starting from the properties of the micro- and macronutrients consumed through diet. We have truly believed in this, we have taken risks, we staked everything on our intuitions and on a method of our own. And we will continue to do so.”

Andrea and Roberto Lacorte, Founders of PharmaNutra S.p.A.
