Supplier of pharmaceutical products and leader in care solutions

200 years of experience and entrepreneurship

Our organisation represents over 200 years’ worth of experience in the healthcare industry and entrepreneurship. In 1798, Willem Brocades founded his pharmacy in Meppel. He soon started manufacturing products and preparations for neighbouring pharmacies, and then expanded his range with bandages, plasters and medical tools, so as to respond to every need in the market as best he could. He had a pioneering spirit and was able to envision how the various cares surrounding the matter of healthcare could be taken care of.

Many partnerships and business expansions later, Brocacef Group is now part of the German PHOENIX Group, with McKesson Europe as the second-largest shareholder. We work with and for pharmacies, hospitals, general practitioners, nursing homes, suppliers, healthcare insurers and private individuals

Present throughout the whole chain

Brocacef operates throughout the entire pharmaceutical chain, lending us a unique position in the Dutch pharmaceutical healthcare industry. We are the uncontested market leader in our field.

  • In the corporate market, we service a large range of healthcare providers, from pharmacies and dispensing general practitioners to hospitals, care homes, and nursing homes, and from pharmaceutical manufacturers to veterinarians.
  • In the consumer market, we operate across the country, always close to the consumer thanks to our chain of over 500 pharmacies (320 Brocacef and 180 partner pharmacies) and via BENU Direct. With our BENU brand, we are able to provide consumers with access to pharmaceutical care via multiple channels, via our own pharmacies, partner pharmacies, and BENU Direct. Our range consists of medication, medical bandaging materials and tools, self-care products, dermo-cosmetics, (pharmaceutical) care support and nursing care at home. We also manufacture LIVSANE, our own extensive line of self-care products.

What customers say about us

There's nothing but positive things to say about the nurses
Jolieke Mendrik
Patient Solutions Manager Benelux

"There's nothing but positive things to say about the team of very committed, experienced and passionate nurses. They have specialist knowledge of the medicine and the indication area, due to which they can provide personal, specialized care for patients at home. The fact that BHS is part of Brocacef Group - which we also know well - played a part in our choice to partner with them. Brocacef gives us a sense of trust, and that's important in such a big project. The success of our collaboration is also shown in the first patient feedback: patients rate the support program with a 8.9.

Brocacef Healthcare Logistics is able to adapt quickly
Marco Groot
Supply Chain Clusterlead Benelux & Nordics

"Brocacef Healthcare Logistics ensures that our products are stored and transported at the right temperature. Our opiates are stored in an opiate safe. The organisation also handles the destruction of rejected or expired products. They will gradually fulfill an additional role in reprocessing work, such as repackaging and re-labelling secondary packaging on site. We're familiar with each other, and Brocacef Healthcare Logistics is able to adapt quickly, which is a real added value for us."
