About us

Forum Health Products Ltd is part of the Barentz group. Forum Health was established in 1981, when Forum Chemicals was set up to sell ingredients to the food and pharmaceutical industry. The business has evolved over many years and since 2011, was acquired by Barentz. In the United Kingdom, Barentz operates Barentz UK, the ingredients business and Forum Health Products, a virtual distributor of medicinal products.

Forum Health Products Ltd are a ‘virtual’ distributor (we do not have our own warehousing facilities but instead outsource this activity to appropriately authorised contractors). We operate a business to business (B2B) model. We distribute a number of licensed medicines on behalf of marketing authorisation holders to pre-approved customers only.

We are licensed to procure and supply medicines and our authorisation covers the product categories of General Sales List (GSL), Pharmacy only (P) and Prescription Only Medicines (POM). Our authorisation covers both ambient and cold chain products.
