CPhI worldwide: German probiotics company SYNformulas seeks partnerships to drive internationalization

  • SYNformulas, leading probiotics supplier from Germany, will exhibit for the first time at the pharmaceutical trade fair CPhI worldwide in Milan
  • Focus will be on promoting internationalisation of business through partners under the Kijimea® brand or established local brand families
  • Excellent, evidence-based products, supported by publications in e.g. The Lancet, generate worldwide interest

Gräfelfing, 21st October 2021. SYNformulas, one of the leading probiotics companies in the field of treating intestinal complaints and allergies, is exhibiting for the first time at CPhI worldwide. From 9-11 November 2021 the company will present its groundbreaking offer for new licensing and distribution partnerships in the category "Finished Dosage Formulation”. At booth 1D51, trade fair visitors and interested exhibitors will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the scientifically researched products of the Kijimea® umbrella brand and examine distribution opportunities in countries that have not yet been tapped. "While we are successfully represented with Kijimea® in 10 European countries - and sales are steadily growing – we want to make use of the full potential of our strong brand and focus on international distribution partnerships in the future," says David Rietbrock, Managing Director of SYNformulas GmbH.

The Kijimea® portfolio ranges from products against chronic intestinal complaints to novel treatment options for allergy sufferers. Notably, the significant efficacy of SYNformulas products has been impressively proven by clinical gold standard studies1,2. Publication of these studies in renowned journals such as The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology has received a lot of attention and a great interest worldwide.

SYNformulas exclusively own the world´s only patented bacterial strain that has proven significant efficacy in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome in two gold standard studies – both in live and heat-inactivated form.1,2 Based on these positive study results, the bacterial strain was recently included in the newly updated version of the S3 Guideline Irritable Bowel Syndrome3 - the standard guideline for clinical practice, independently compiled and edited by the German Society for Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS).

"Around 11% of the population worldwide is affected by irritable bowel syndrome – and the prevalence is rising continuously! The disease affects people of all ages and sufferers often feel left alone with their discomfort. With strong distribution partners, we want to give these people access to our groundbreaking therapy options and give them back some quality of life", says David Rietbrock.

SYNformulas is represented at CPhI by the management team around David Rietbrock (Managing Director), David Schmidt (Director Product Management) and Dr. Max Dingler (Director Research & Development).
