The profession is changing. Advance with it.
As you know, pharmacists are taking on more projects. They are no longer simple dispensers of medication but key players in the healthcare world. No doubt this works in the interest of a profession faced with changing demands. But there are also requirements.
Between competitors, price and volume reductions in prescribed medications, and emergence of new services, it’s not so easy to make the best choices. In our profession as elsewhere, there is strength in numbers. This is cultivated at the heart of a pharmacist cooperative.
This union aims to defend and ensure the sustainability of pharmacies and the pharmacist profession. Joining the Welcoop Cooperative today, is to believe in this positive dynamic which powers pharmacists towards new aspects of the profession.

The Cooperative: a tool that gives back
A part of the profits of our Pharmacist Cooperative is redistributed to cooperators in the form of cooperative dividends. These dividends are an official legal complementary income specific to the cooperative system. You receive them each year, in proportion to your purchases from relevant Group subsidiaries in Year N-1.
In this way, you receive:
- Cooperative dividends of 20%* on your net purchases of Cristers generic and OTC medications
- Cooperative dividends of 5%* on your net purchases of Pharma Lab European medications
- Cooperative dividends of 4%* on your purchases of D Medica home healthcare products and services.
* After ratification by the Welcoop Cooperative Assembly General.
While preserving your financial health with cooperative dividends, you also become owner of your own generic and over-the-counter medication laboratory, Cristers.
