Walgreens Boots Alliance set for long-term global supply agreement
The pharmacy and personal care retail giant has announced a supply agreement with Fareva, a household, cosmetics and pharmaceutical contract manufacturer.

Walgreens Boots Alliance, which was formed in a 2014 merger between Walgreens and Alliance Boots, has announced a binding offer from Fareva for a 10-year global agreement for the manufacture of own beauty brands and private label products.

Terms of the offer

Under the terms of the offer, Fareva will take ownership of BCM, Walgreens Boots Alliance’s contract manufacturing business, which operates factories in the UK, France and Germany. The agreement includes products for sale in the USA.

“The proposed agreement will create a partnership to provide Walgreens Boots Alliance with a core multinational manufacturing and development resource, enabling the company to accelerate its global product strategy​,” says Walgreens Boots Alliance.

Fareva manufactures in 11 countries, including the USA, and has significant research and development capabilities.

The proposed agreement, which is subject to Works Council consultation and regulatory approval, is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
