Wasserburg, Germany: – Pharmaceutical lactose specialist MEGGLE Excipients & Technology (MEGGLE) is underlining its presence in the fast expanding MENA pharma manufacturing market with a presence at September’s Maghreb Pharma Expo in Algiers.

This will be MEGGLE’s first attendance at this recently founded and rapidly growing event, now recognized as one of Africa’s leading pharma-tech B2B platforms.

Wide lactose range

MEGGLE will share Stand A2 at the SAFEX exhibition center in Algiers with its regional distribution partner, UNIPEX Solutions.

The MEGGLE display will emphasize direct compressible lactose types like Tablettose, FlowLac, DuraLac and its wide range of co-processed excipients.

“We will be able to show that our product portfolio of lactose based excipients covers all relevant applications: direct compression, wet- and dry granulation, powder preparations for capsule and sachet filling and dry powder inhalation,” said Christoph Adler, MEGGLE Head of Marketing & Area Manager.

Leading-edge excipients

“This event provides us with a great opportunity to share information and knowledge about leading edge excipients and their place in the latest manufacturing methods,” he added.

Dr. Franz-Karl Penz, MEGGLE Head of Application Management, will be on stand in Algiers to answer technical and detailed questions, along with MEGGLE Area Manager for the Africa Region, Dr. Karim Maarif.

“We are very much looking forward to the Algiers event,” commented Dr. Karim Maarif.

“As the biggest exhibition in North Africa, Maghreb Pharma presents a perfect opportunity to meet our existing customers and to present our product portfolio to our core audience of purchasing and R&D decision-makers,” said Dr. Maarif.

Nearby, on Stand F8, MEGGLE will also be represented by its Tunisian distribution partner, Pharma Labo.
