Adcock Ingram Take two and see me at the JSE
Adcock Ingram has just, we are informed, taken delivery of Nutrilida, a Joburg based vitamin, mineral and supplements (VMS) outfit, for an undisclosed sum. Among the Nutrilida products consumed in our household are ViralGuard for immunity, particularly as the seasonal mists roll in and Bestum, a multivitamin which when swallowed with a mouthful of Johnny Walker Black in the morning puts an extremely positive complexion on the day ahead. Nutrilida’s turnover last year was a, dare we say, healthy R212bar, and the acquisition fits neatly into Adcock’s aspirations for, ahem, VMS, where it has grown its presence in recent years.
Comment: So now you know what VMS is, and may fling the expression around with confidence on the cocktail circuit.
