Ernest Sampong’s pharmaceutical company launches herbal cough syrup

by Editorial Team

Ghanian multimillionaire and pharmaceutical giant owner Ernest Bediako Sampong has introduced a new locally manufactured herbal cough remedy to the domestic market. 

The new syrup by Ernest Chemist is a non-drowsy herbal cough remedy made with honey and plant extracts of herbal ingredients, including ginger, basil, long pepper, violets and liquorice, YEN reported. According to YEN, Sampong said the product is in line with its commitment to provide a full range of quality medicine at affordable rates for customers.

“Of late, we have realized that there has been an increasing demand for herbal products, and as a pharmacist, I know that a lot of these medicines derived from plants have very high efficacy rates. So we decided to venture into this area in the interest of serving the needs of patients and customers,” Sampong said.

In a 2019 interview with Ghana Web, he stated that competition and stringent laws on imported products had forced the company to grow. Sampong added that those factors pushed the company into manufacturing most of the drugs that it once imported.

In 2015, Goodman AMC ranked the businessman and pharmacist as Ghana’s 41st wealthiest person with a net worth of $276 million. Although Ernest Chemist launched in 1986 as a sole proprietorship, it became a limited liability company in 1993.
