Who we are



By advancing research and development, we are powering innovation to find new ways of delivering high-quality and affordable medicines. Our international team gathers people from across Europe, including industrial scientists and academic partners from universities across Europe.

Our experts utilize top-class science, using state-of the-art equipment at our world-class facility in Prague. As we leverage growth from patent expiry, we are fuelling innovation as we expand our comprehensive therapeutic portfolio.

We go further for the people we serve, by developing value-added medicines that innovate around established products, enhancing the patient experience in order to support improved outcomes.



With an extensive manufacturing network and flagship sites in Prague and Bucharest, our production and supply chain capabilities represent a powerhouse for generic and OTC medicines in the heart of Europe. Our industrial footprint provides the capacity to reliably produce high-quality and affordable medicines for the millions of people we serve, delivered at competitive prices for our customers.

Our manufacturing network and resilient supply chains are vital to ensure continuity of healthcare for large numbers of people, which is currently more important than ever. We are constantly investing to upgrade and extend our manufacturing operations, while streamlining processes to optimise productivity



Our aspiration is that healthcare should be a right, and not a privilege. Now, more than ever, people need broad access to high-quality and affordable medicines. We are proud that our branded generic and OTC portfolio actively supports people’s daily healthcare needs, while helping governments throughout Europe to build and maintain a sustainable healthcare system for society as a whole.

Standing side-by-side with healthcare professionals, pharmacists and health system decision-makers, we have the same sense of social obligation to help lower costs and improve access to healthcare. With our continued expansion into new markets and our winning team, we can deliver more medicines that people need every day, in Europe and beyond.



Zentiva is proud to be socially responsible with programs at both global and local levels that focus on our people, our partners and our planet. The growth of our organization brings new opportunities for our people to fulfil their potential, while also positioning us well to attract the best talent and retain our team, to secure our success for future generations.

Our PlanetZ program, increasing our use of renewable energy throughout our organization, aims to help create a sustainable future for all. 

We strive to nurture young pharmaceutical scientists and engineers through initiatives like The Parc and ORBIS that connect rising talents together with leading pharmaceutical and academic experts, all working to address the biggest challenges in healthcare.
