Seeing the need for affordable medicine, he decided to focus on generic medicine wholesale at lower margins.
the company ventured into retail, maintaining only one branch in QC, but then already serving customers as far as Batangas.
As demand grew, the company decided to increase accessibilty of quality and affordable generics through franchising. TGP opened its first franchise outlet in Pasay City along with 20 more stores in Metro Manila the same year.
Achieved target of 1400 outlets, pivoting TGP to be the largest drugstore chain in the country.
TGP started out as small pharmaceutical company in 1949. Acknowledging the dire need for quality medicines but at affordable prices, the company focused on generic medicines to provide the Filipino with a more affordable alternative. In 2001, the company ventured into retail, starting only with a single outlet. As demand grew, the company decided to bring their medicines more accessible to all the far reaches of the country through the FRANCHISING business model. The historic year was 2007, starting with 20 outlets within Metro Manila.
Now as TGP, it revolutionized the entire Pharmaceutical healthcare industry and pharmaceutical retail with its bold and different path for growth. Who would think that a pharmacy or a drugstore with pure generic drugs rapidly take off? After the initial struggles and birth pains, the healthcare landscape has embraced and accepted generic medicine as it has proven to be effective and of high quality standards and yet, truly affordable for every Juan.
Now only on its 7th year in full pharmacy retail and franchising, TGP has dotted the entire archipelago with more than strong 1700 outlets, making healthcare accessible to every Juan. As expansion grew rapidly, so with the numerous awards and recognition TGP received from various entrepreneurship, retail, franchising and marketing awards from various prestigious retail, franchising, marketing, social entrepreneurship and management organizations. The most recent award-the GAWAD GENERIC SUMMIT is made even more valuable by the fact that it was conferred by our own Department of Health (DOH), in celebration of Philippines' 25th Generic Summit celebrated last September 2013. This is solid proof that TGP is now well accepted and trusted as source of quality and affordable generic medicines. The massive reach and accessibility made TGP a friendly neighbor pharmacy outlet. TGP is now the largest retail pharmacy chain in the country.
We carry on with the vision to hit 2000 strong outlets by 2017 where every Filipino will have access to good health.
To be the drugstore of choice for safe, quality and affordable generic medicines through the widest, most profitable franchise network nationwide; leveraging on complementary healthcare services, integrated technology and processes, and the strength of our people and culture.
