One of the leading pharmaceuticals company in the country MUBARIK PHARMACY today showcased a wide assortment of health related products while participating in a national expo hosted by the ministry of health at the mansoor hotel.
The two day Ministry of Health expo was officially opened by HE Vice President Abdurrahman Abdullahi Ismaeil Saylici and the Minister of Health Hon Suleiman Essa Ahmed “Xaglatosiye”.
MUBARIK PHARMACY as established back in 1990 and has since expanded its operations with at least six branches in Hargeisa and other scattered across the country and even extends its operation to neighbouring countries such as Somalia.
The locally owned pharmaceuticals retail and wholesale firm is one of the leading importers of quality pharmaceuticals products which it imports from Europe , Turkey and arab nations who manufacture good quality products.
Many people who were attending the two day expo thronged to the MUBARIK PHARMACY stalls to see the wide range of pharmaceuticals products which were being displayed by the firm and also to take advantage of the discount being offered by the firm on its products.
We had the opportunity to interview the founder and proprietor of MUBARIK PHARMACY Mr. Yusuf Dualeh Barre who started by giving us a brief history of the company in which he started by saying, “ The company was incepted in 1991 just as the after the war ended and our first outlet was opened in the Dulcad refugee camp during those hard times its was not easy to gain access to proper health facilities because of the lack of health infrastructure in major cities such as Hargeisa and Burao thats is when we decided to step in.
Mr. Yusuf Dualeh went on to say , “Since the country lacked manufacturing capabilities ,we are forced to import our products from other foreign countries such as Turkey where we have been able to forge partnership with wide scale manufacturers such as BIllim Turkish pharmaceuticals giant and others in countries such as Jordan,Germany, Holland and the Netherland.
The managing director of MUBARIK PHARMACY expressing his views on the part of the Ministry of Health two day expo said, “This expo provides an opportunity to the participating companies to display their products and services to the business visitors from across the region and it offered good chance to display the technologies and to meet the customers with ease and as far as the organizing is concerned, it is very nice and smooth. The quality of visitors is very good, and the most important is we got much better chance to interact with the buyers.
