Description of economic activities

Manufacture of pharmaceutical preparations (NACE2 2120)

This company, with headquarters in Arlesheim, Switzerland, operates as a developer, manufacturer and seller of complementary medicine, nutritional supplements and natural cosmetics. It was founded in 1921. The company is a world market leader in integrated pharmaceutical and body care products. The company produces and markets medicaments and personal care, based on an anthroposophic understanding of human beings and nature. Its elixirs are extracted from the immediate life current of plants that are known to be especially suited for a wholesome diet. Its cosmetics are carefully produced from choice raw materials of high quality and naturalness in modern manufacturing plants. The company's product range reflects the needs of its customers. It wants to provide the ill as well as the healthy person with products that enhance self-healing processes and general health. Furthermore, the company wants to make an active contribution to the democratization of knowledge and to ongoing debates on health topics through information and publications to help increase the competence of the patient and enhance the awareness of responsibility towards oneself as well as social interrelation. In 2006, the company has been awarded the German Language Prize by the Institute of German Language (Institute Deutsche Sprache) and the Eberhard Shock Foundation. The reason of the award was that Weleda AG motivates consumers to make up their minds about Weleda products instead of just making them buy by means of promises or disguise. The company aims at long-term business relationships marked by maximum transparency and respect for mutual interests with business partners and consumers alike. It honors the promise to base its products on raw materials grown to organic standards or gathered in a sustainable manner by establishing and cultivating a network of suppliers based on trust. The company seeks direct contact with all of its partners to put mutual aims into effect.
