What do we do at the Braunton site?
We manufacture and pack over 2.5 billion doses of pain relief, cough cold and flu remedies, hayfever relief, nicotine replacement and a range of other self-care products, right here in beautiful North Devon.
Who are our customers?
We predominantly supply the UK retail market with our licenced products which are labelled with the retailer’s own brand. Whilst you may not have heard of us, you could well have consumed a product made by us-and we hope you felt better afterwards! In addition, we also manufacture other well-known branded products for ourselves and a number of other blue chip pharmaceutical companies for products sold across Europe and Australasia.

How does Perrigo support the Community?
As a business we donate to a combination of local and national charities through our charitable foundation each year and we love to match fund the charitable donations our colleagues achieve through their own endeavours every year.
