Beaphar has been passionate about pets for 75 years now. During this time, we have developed, manufactured and marketed pharmaceuticals, healthcare products and super premium complete foods to help improve the lives of all types of pets. We are proud of this heritage and the high quality, extensive range of products that we now offer to pet owners all over the world.
Our History - where it all began
Beaphar was founded in 1942 by the man after whom the company is named: Bernard Aa (Pharmacy). With Grandfather Aa’s background as a miller and his passion for pets, it wasn’t long before Beaphar began developing homeopathic products for dogs and cats. The 1950’s to 1970’s saw a period of growth for Beaphar. During this time, we produced our first veterinary product, followed by increased development and production of multiple types of medicines and care products for pets. Under the direction of J. Henk Aa the company embarked on a policy of expansion. 1979 marked the start of an exciting new area for Beaphar including the creation of our own R&D department complete with laboratory. This allowed the company to take a big step forward into the world of veterinary medicine and later led to production of our first dog and flea collar in 1983. Further takeovers took place joining the Beaphar family.
A unique moment in the history of Beaphar arose in 1993 when, after eight years of case assessment, flea drops were registered. Beaphar was one of the very first companies to have this registration. Today, Beaphar is established across multiple territories and is one of the leading Pet Manufacturers.
Our Philosophy - we're pet owners too!
We believe pets deserve the very best and to that end, Beaphar aims to be, stay and deliver the very best possible. 90% of Beaphar employees also have pets at home, so they can truly relate to the emotional bond between pet and owner.
