Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/02/2014 -- Traditionally in Colombia chemists were independent players, with one outstanding cooperative, Copidrogas, which over the previous ten years doubled its number of affiliates. This cooperative has been so successful that others are following suit. Recently, some regional distributors of medicines created a unified company and a network of chemists under the Droguerias Roxi banner, which allows them to improve the power of negotiation with the different pharmaceutical laboratories and suppliers, translating into efficiencies to consumers as a result of economies of scale. This trend will continue to strengthen during the forecast period and almost all of the 20,000 chemists in the country will belong to some sort of associative scheme.
