Bad Vilbel –
22 November 2023 – STADA is expanding and improving its distribution and promotion of cough and cold brands in China through a partnership with leading locally-listed pharmaceuticals player CR Sanjiu. This cooperation was sealed during a formal signing ceremony held in Shenzhen on 22 November.

Under the terms of the agreement, CR Sanjiu will be responsible for the hospital, pharmacy and e-commerce channel distribution and promotion of STADA's well-established cough and cold syrups in China. Among these are the Shidagong, Gelite, Ruike and Xikening brands which STADA produces at a dedicated 13,250 sq m facility in Miyun, near Beijing, China.

Furthermore, the partnership is also intended over time to act as a multi-category platform from which to introduce other STADA consumer healthcare products that will be promoted and distributed by CR Sanjiu through its network of more than 2,000 sales representatives and e-commerce platforms, serving 400,000 pharmacies and thousands of public hospitals nationwide.



For CR Sanjiu, adding STADA’s highly reputed cough and cold brands to its promoted portfolio diversifies its offering to consumers, hospitals and retail partners whilst complementing the company’s existing range of respiratory products. The partnership with STADA aligns with CR Sanjiu's strategic goals and category development plan as well as its ambition to collaborate only with trusted partners such as STADA.
