“FERN has not only an established brand heritage, but also a complete range for adults as well as for the pediatric application. With FERN in our portfolio, we will establish a strong consumer healthcare platform to launch other quality medicines as well and provide better health for all Filipinos. With our successful portfolio expansion activities, we are able to offer quality medicines at reasonable prices, across all segments of healthcare; specialty, generics and consumer health.” Abarientos said.
Another wonderful announcement is that while FERN-C, Fern-C Kidz and Kiddimin are already available in Watsons and other drugstores, the brand will also be soon available in Mercury Drug outlets nationwide.
