The Company

Rightdose Healthcare Limited is a joint venture between CEO and founder, Kasim Gulzar, Asim Sarwar, Executive Chairman and major shareholder in United Wholesale (Scotland) Limited, Scotland’s largest cash & carry operation with sales of over £230m per annum.

The business has ambitious, large-scale expansion plans to diversify its operation by providing an online pharmaceutical distribution service. Significant investment has already been made in new premises and specialist equipment for this enterprise. The trend of consumers moving from away from high street shopping to online, coupled with the increased demand in pharmaceutical products substantiates the business developing this offering.
