Human Health

The Human Health segment consists of two product groups: Finished Dosage Form Generics and Nutritionals. Finished Dosage Form GenericsIn December 2010, Aceto acquired Rising Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a finished dosage form marketing and distribution company with 40 years of experience in the U.S. generics business, providing Aceto with a platform for growth in this rapidly growing industry. This is a natural extension of our successful business model which will provide customers and suppliers additional opportunities to penetrate the end user segment of the pharmaceutical market. With the Rising brand label, we have been able to expand our direct involvement in the pharmaceutical manufacturing space through greater global awareness of our capabilities in the marketing of pharmaceutical intermediates, active ingredients and the ultimate end-products, finished dosage form generics.NutritionalsAceto supplies the raw materials used in the production of nutritional and packaged dietary supplements, including vitamins, amino acids, iron compounds and biochemicals used in pharmaceutical and nutraceutical preparations. After identifying a change in the attitudes of Europeans towards nutritional products, Aceto globalized this business, creating an operating company headquartered in Germany, Aceto Health Ingredients GmbH. This globally structured business then became the model for all of our business segments, providing international reach and perspective for our customers.
