Lasco Pharmaceuticals, a division of Lasco Distributors Limited, recently received the prestigious 2014 Crystal Leaf Award for promotional excellence from Pharmascience International, a Canadian manufacturer of globally recognised generic medicines.

Lasco Pharmaceuticals was awarded the Crystal Leaf commemorative trophy in January, for the second consecutive year, for their exemplary performance in the marketing and sales of Pharmascience brands such as Pediatric Electrolyte, Entrophen (aspirin) and other prescription items, which are available in pharmacies islandwide.

Honoured to receive the award, Hortense Edwards, general manager, Lasco Pharmaceutical Division, noted that the gesture by their international partner is very encouraging.

"We are honoured to be acknowledged by our international partner in such a meaningful way. This award is the result of our hard-working staff, the tremendous support from the Pharmascience team and our commitment to providing affordable Canadian generics for Jamaicans," she said.

"We value our long-standing partnership with Pharmascience and this recognition serves as further motivation to continue to expand our partnership and deliver outstanding results to our business partner."

Lasco's partnership with Pharmascience spans over two decades and has resulted in greater access to affordable, high-quality generic medicines for all Jamaicans.

Lasco Distributors' Pharmaceutical Division is one of the leading pharmaceutical distributors in Jamaica, representing a number of international drug houses. The division supplies prescription items, over-the-counter medicines, diagnostics medical machines, veterinary items, and is also renowned for its own brand of generics, distributed under the LASMED trademark, for the treatment of life-long illnesses such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes, asthma and HIV.
