Tobinco Pharmaceutical Company has assured the public that it will continue to maintain the quality and integrity of its products as it embarks on resolving certain issues with the Food and Drugs Authority(FDA) and clearing its good name.

“Our drugs that were and are being destroyed by the FDA are not fake drugs”. The Chief Executive emphasized.

The company states clearly that in its thirteen years in the pharmaceutical industry, it has operated honestly and complied with all regulatory requirements and completely rejects allegations of dealing in unwholesome products. “We can say without doubt that the company has always imported quality pharmaceutical products contrary to what has been put out.

“What has led to the recent state of affairs with regards to registration of products with the Food and Drugs Authority is a misjudgment and delayed action on our part, and has nothing to do with the integrity of the products. A penalty imposed by the Authority in connection with the registration issues has been duly paid and further discussions are ongoing.”

“The health and well being of the nation are our priority concerns and we will continue to contribute our quota through the provision of quality drugs and establishing world class manufacturing facilities in Ghana that will also create jobs.

We must state that some of the medicines which are being destroyed were passed under our previous registrations by the FDA whilst some are in the process of registration and cannot be described as “fake”. Thus, we are not in violation of the provisions of the Public Health Act 2012, Act 851, subsection 123, on fake (counterfeit) products.

Since product registration is for a period, after which the product must be re-registered upon the submission of the relevant supporting documentation, samples and payment, we have duly been pursuing re-registration in respect of all the products we distribute. Indeed the requisite registration payments have been made and documentations are being prepared for the attention of FDA.

We therefore wish to assure the general public that Tobinco is committed to ensuring public health and safety and have never and will not compromise on this.

We appreciate the support of our clients and customers who have sympathized with us in these trying times and assure them that they can continue to count on us to uphold our integrity and continue to provide quality service to them.
