DIPO has warehouses in Guanacaste, San Carlos, Pérez Zeledón, Pococí and San José. It currently serves 11.000 businesses and plans to serve 1.000 more with the new division.
Before the arrival of new competitors, pharmaceutical companies are reviewing their strategies for the year.
In the last five years 63 new pharmacies and retail outlets began operating, reaching a turnover of $402 million in 2014, 70% more than in 2009.
New distributors, more chain pharmacies and new alliances are examples of the dynamism in the sector.
A study by the Universidad de Costa Rica notes that one company controls the distribution of 80% of drugs sold, with price differences of up to 1,000%.
