Probiotec is a leading manufacturer, marketer and distributor of a diverse, high quality range of prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals and complementary medicines. Over the past week, Probiotec has announced the sale of the Impromy brand to Blackmores, the sale of a number of pharmaceutical brands to iNova Pharmaceuticals and the sale and lease back of its manufacturing facility in Laverton North.
