Fertin Pharma's history

The history of our company begins with the history of the affiliated company Gumlink, formerly known as Dandy

Fertin Pharma was set up in 1978 as a Dandy Group subsidiary to undertake research and development into chewing gum as a drug delivery system, on the basis of Dandy's existing expertise.

Today, Fertin Pharma is a company of the Bagger-Sorensen Group, and we conduct business on a global scale.
