Trade magazine Chain Drug Review has picked Israel’s Super-Pharm Ltd. as the
best pharmacy chain in the world for 2010. The company beat the US’s Walgreen
Company and the UK’s Boots.
Super-Pharm also operates chains in Poland,
China and Trinidad. It uses the same logo and some of the same private-label
brands, such as Life and LifeStyle, as Canada’s Shoppers Drugs Mart Corporation,
where its founder, Murray Koffler, got his start.
“When I founded Super-
Pharm more than 30 years ago, I never dreamed that it would be such a success
story,” Koffler said. “There is no question that this is not the success of just
one man, but of a team of thousands of employees, beginning with the employees
in the stores who are responsible for dayto- day contact with our customers, and
up to the company’s executives, who set the vision and lead Super- Pharm to
impressive achievements year after year.”
