Market Report, "Health and Beauty Specialist Retailers in Argentina", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

2014 was marked by strong legal disputes between the City of Buenos Aires and the national government on the products that are allowed to be offered in parapharmacies/drugstores. Whilst the Ministry of Health of the Nation by the Pharmacy Law 26.567 established that these stores are allowed to sell only medications or hygiene products, the government of the City of Buenos Aires by Decree 41/14 enables these outlets to carry on other business activities which do not interfere with the sale of remedies. In 2014 chains such as Farmacity and Vantage continued to sell products other than drugs, although the Argentinean Pharmaceutical Confederation (COFA) and the College of Pharmacists and Biochemists Capital Federal oppose it, and a tough legal battle is expected.
