25 September, World Pharmacists’ Day

For years, the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) has been celebrating World Pharmacists’ Day every 25 September. 

A commemoration organised by the body that brings together the various pharmaceutical associations in each country, with the aim of highlighting the role of pharmacists in global health care. 

In this article we explain what will be celebrated on 25 September 2021 and Grup Barcelonesa’s contribution to the pharmaceutical sector.


FIP is an international body representing more than one million pharmacy professionals – including pharmacists involved in scientific research and development of new medicines – worldwide. 

Now well established, the International Federation was founded in The Hague in 1912 and has had its operational headquarters in The Hague ever since. 

Since it was decided that 25 September should be celebrated as World Pharmacists’ Day, the Federation considered that this day should be used to disseminate messages related to the pharmaceutical profession. Along these lines, for this year 2021, the slogan chosen is “Pharmacy: always reliable, at the service of your health”. 

Therefore, the 2021 edition of Pharmacists’ Day will be dedicated to making it clear that, in the face of the tide of fake news and distrust of institutions that are so common nowadays, pharmacists are a benchmark of credibility and selfless service to ensure the health of all citizens. 


Grup Barcelonesa’s pharmaceutical division also wants to join in this celebration. 

In fact, one of the priority objectives of our pharmaceutical and fine chemistry section is to offer our customers reliable chemistry to improve their health. 

Our main activity is to provide specialised services with high added value in the pharmaceutical chemistry market, commercialising products and services related to both the synthesis of APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) and the production of final pharmaceutical formulations. 

In this sense, the three basic elements of activity are: 

  • Wide range of products and solutions: We offer a wide range of commodity chemicals, speciality products and advanced intermediates. In addition, we work with leading manufacturers, providing the necessary regulatory documentation for each product. We also have an extensive network of contacts that allows us to find any solution to our customers’ needs.
  • Technical support: we only work with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) manufacturers and we carry out an exhaustive control of the regulatory documentation and compliance with the different pharmacopoeias for the products supplied by our suppliers.
  • Locating new products: if you need new raw materials for your processes, we take care of finding them. This allows your technical department to focus on more productive tasks.

Fine chemistry and chemical synthesis

In the pharmaceutical division of Grup Barcelonesa we work in four product categories for the manufacture of active ingredients and chemical synthesis: 

  • Organic and inorganic commodities. 
  • Solvents. 
  • Reaction media. 
  • Synthesis intermediates.

Additives and supplements for making pharmaceutical formulations

If what you need are additives and complements so that you can make your own pharmaceutical formulations, at Barcelonesa we sell products of the highest quality. 

Moreover, as we have explained in the previous section, our suppliers – and we ourselves – comply with all the specific regulations on good manufacturing practices. 

These are some of the additives and complements that you can find in our catalogue: 

  • Antioxidants. 
  • Coating agents. 
  • Dyes and dispersions.
  • Oils and essences.
  • Natural extracts.
  • Sweeteners.
