Mundipharma Announces Principal Partner Sponsorship for Singapore’s National Day Parade 2014

SINGAPORE, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Mundipharma, one of the fastest growing pharmaceutical companies in the region, announced today its status as principal partner of this year’s National Day Parade (NDP)  — the first time ever for a pharmaceutical company to hold this position. In celebration of Singapore’s 49th year of nation building, Mundipharma will be distributing free samples of its flagship BETADINE® antiseptic product range in 220,000 NDP funpacks.

The sponsorship comes shortly after Mundipharma’s establishment this year of its award-winning regional headquarters in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District, where its operations for Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa are based.

BETADINE® is one of Mundipharma’s leading products, a well-established name in the prevention and healing of topical infections for over 50 years. It is used to manage various types of infections due to its broad spectrum of germ killing actions effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi without resistance of clinical significance. It is widely used by health care professionals and consumers alike for wound care, throat and oral care, and feminine care.

"Through this sponsorship, Mundipharma is honoured to be able to demonstrate our commitment to Singapore and the region following the recognition of our regional headquarters here," said Raman Singh, President of Mundipharma Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa.

"Singapore is a valued biomedical hub in the region, and we hope to show our appreciation for the support we’ve been receiving from authorities and consumers by contributing to this year’s celebrations." Raman added.
