About us

Vivatis – helping our partners succeed in the API, intermediates, nutraceuticals and functional food sectors

Vivatis is an independent full-service provider for manufacturers, marketing authorisation holders, distributors and brand owners in the areas of pharmaceuticals (generics and product synthesis), cosmetics, nutraceuticals, food (including luxury and functional food), sports nutrition and detergent sectors.

Our staff is committed to the Vivatis motto "From Molecules to Finished Products".


This principle is reflected in the broadness of our portfolio, which includes identifying and qualifying sources of innovative ingredients right around the world (though primarily in the Asian market) and supplying active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), intermediates, finished formulations, nutraceutical ingredients, flavours, fragrances and food additives. Vivatis also offers a wide range of standard packaging solutions for pharmaceutical and cosmetics manufacturers, including dispensers and spray pumps, as well as custom solutions.

There’s increasing demand, especially from chemicals companies, not just for starting materials but also advanced intermediates. Vivatis is able to integrate closely with clients’ value chains and supply pharmaceutical products at any stage of production.

The same applies to the nutraceuticals sector, a market where companies are constantly looking for new product strategies. Vivatis offers everything that nutraceutical and functional food manufacturers and brand owners need, from product ideas to identifying new ingredients to qualifying suppliers to providing finished private-label products.

Flavours, fragrances and additives are needed for the manufacture of many products, and this is reflected in the broad range of the department serving this sector.

Vivatis owes its success in large part to the global supplier network that it has built up, which allows our clients to reliably procure products in the necessary quality and quantity and at fair conditions. Our employees work in a fast, transparent way, with expert industry knowledge and a focus on cost efficiency. Clients of all Vivatis divisions will enjoy a truly exceptional level of service and a strong, trusting partnership.

Our clients range in size from small specialist manufacturers to mid-sized businesses to large corporations, some of who work with Vivatis to implement second-source strategies.

International network for clients and suppliers

Vivatis has independent branch offices in six European countries, and a central sourcing office in China.

It also works with a large international network of audited partner manufacturers who are qualified to EU standards.

This network can provide solutions for almost any requirement that may arise in the pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and functional food sectors, including procurement of pharmaceutical intermediates.


Our six European branch offices offer our clients outstanding service right on their doorstep. To allow us to cater to national and regional preferences regarding particular intermediates or ingredients, our local teams possess in-depth knowledge of both procurement channels and sales markets. The branch offices also offer Vivatis partners unique strategic advantages in terms of logistics and supply chain management.

A special role is played by our sourcing office in China. The highly qualified team based at the China office has at its disposal all the resources it needs to identify and qualify attractive new supply sources. They can also provide expert supervision for client audits, including simultaneous interpreting services.

Besides China, Vivatis focuses on other key Asian markets such as India. Our representatives regularly travel to these countries, and we have built up a network of qualified suppliers.
