Our History


The Prati-Donaduzzi history was built on the pillars of total devotion to the quality of its drugs, and its commitment in valuing people, ethics and integrity.

After returning from their masters degree in France, in the late 80’s, the pharmacist couple Luiz e Carmen Donaduzzi, started the task of installing a medicine factory in the capital of Pernambuco, Recife.

In 1993, with the support from the Municipality of Toledo (a city in the state of Paraná, Brazil) and the State Government of Paraná, it was possible for the company to be established in the city. In Toledo the company started its activities manufacturing drugs to hospitals, but with a key vision to new opportunities in the upcoming pharmaceutical market in Brazil, due to laws that allows the production of generic drugs (Law nº 9.787, February 10th, 1999), Prati-Donaduzzi started making its way to the top in the national market.

Today, the company is prominent in manufacturing generic drugs, being the largest supplier to governmental entities in Brazil.
