About us

We help provide better care

Established in 2006, Mantra Pharma quickly earned an enviable position in Quebec’s pharmaceutical industry from its great leadership and extensive business relationships. You can certainly count on the twenty-five years of industry experience of our administrators as well as on our team of specialized representatives who are in continuous contact with pharmacists and other healthcare professionals.

Since 2009, Mantra Pharma has built a strong portfolio of generic and natural health care products that provide a competitive edge.

Mantra Pharma has succeeded in doing so by being first to market in the line of MCal supplements with vitamin D, which now offers therapeutic solutions that meet Osteoporosis Canada recommendations.

At Mantra Pharma, patient safety is of the utmost importance. That is why our offerings are clearly identified quality products that meet patient and pharmacist needs alike.
