The foundations of our success are a Swiss family business – and over 140 years of experience.
Our story began in 1878 with the founding of the company F. Uhlmann-Eyraud S.A., which today sells pharmaceutical and cosmetic products throughout Switzerland. In 2003, Uhlmann-Eyraud founded a subsidiary, Dabso S.A. This company serves the food sector and is today a sister company of Uhlmann Eyraud. This combined presence in the food sector and the pharma/OTC sector is unique within the Swiss market.
Frédéric Uhlmann-Eyraud (married to Elisa Eyraud) founds F. Uhlmann-Eyraud S.A. in Geneva.
The purpose of the company is to trade in mineral water and hygiene articles.
