Company background

Indonesia's Kalbe Farma is one of Southeast Asia's largest pharmaceutical companies. It has a diverse lineup of products, ranging from prescription medicine to vitamins to energy drinks.

The company has its own distribution network that carries products to a large number of retail outlets. It also distributes products for major foreign pharmaceutical companies, including Astellas Pharma of Japan and Baxter of the U.S.

Kalbe Farma was launched out of a garage by Boenjamin Setiawan, who is now in his 80s, and his brothers. Setiawan has left the board of directors and now serves as honorary chairman. His niece, Bernadette Ruth Irawati Setiady, has served as president since 2008. The group of founders holds a significant stake in the company.

Kalbe Farma has been expanding its consumer sector, acquiring local health-drink producer Hale International in 2012. The company exports some of its products to neighboring countries.
