1) Tell us a little something about your business…
New Zealand Pharma is a biopharmaceutical company. We are a unique blend of entrepreneurs, biochemists, scientists and industry professionals focused on bringing naturally safe and active ingredients to the world.  The discovery of our flagship active ingredient, NGESIC, has led to the establishment of New Zealand Pharma. Our primary goal is to collaborate with our customers, enabling them to utilize our active ingredients to develop new products or enhance their existing range. Our core focus is to discover and develop unique compounds and ingredients which can lead to the manufacturing and global distribution of specialty medicines that make a difference.

2) When was your lightbulb moment?
Have you ever been in pain?  Of course you have; I wanted to change all that!
Pain is universal to all of us whether it’s mental, emotional or physical.  There is just so much pain in the world. Natural pain products are hot topics these days and we’ve been working on safe and effective formulations to take away topical pain with our award winning science team, as well as doctors and entrepreneurs. Whether it hurt’s, aches, sting’s, twinges or stabs we want to create worry free care that works.

3) Three words of advice…Ok – 6!
Surround yourself with people smarter than you; get out of your comfort zone and keep persisting until other people start to see your vision.
