Orifarm Group is the largest parallel importer of pharmaceuticals in Europe and the largest supplier of pharmaceuticals in Denmark. An important contribution to our success is our curiosity, ambition, and our will to try new things - a driving force that continues to bring our business forward and guides us in our search for new areas to do business in. Since our foundation in 1994, Orifarm has grown to be a successful company with 1,200 employees, working every day to achieve our mission of making healthcare a better deal for society and­ the patients. We continue to do everything necessary to break through barriers to provide savings in the world of pharmaceuticals. 

This year, TEDxOdense focuses on how everyone can be their own hero, a mindset much like ours. We believe that success comes from inside and when we combine our strengths and skills, together we can break down any obstacle. Orifarm is once again a proud partner of TEDxOdense.
