Merck launches Vivera in Latin America
Merck, a leading science and technology company, today announced the launch of its new consumer brand Vivera® in Latin America. Vivera is being launched first in Chile in January 2016, to be followed by several major Latin American markets later in 2016. Vivera provides fast relief from a gastro-intestinal upset by accelerating the natural healing process.
Merck formulated Vivera with B.Aliv® , one of the most researched and most effective probiotics in the world for the treatment of gastro-intestinal upset, which works by regenerating the intestinal flora. The Vivera food supplement comes in a practical and innovative ready-to-use powder sachet, making it an ideal choice for children and adults to use anywhere on-the-go.
Uta Kemmerich-Keil, President and CEO of the Consumer Health business of Merck, commented: “We truly look forward to launching Vivera! Vivera is a fantastic probiotic product which accelerates the healing process after a gastro-intestinal upset and restores the function of the digestive system naturally. I am confident that we have a truly winning proposition for both children and adults, particularly when looking for natural and effective options.”
Brand transitions from Biopharma to Consumer Health
Also in Latin America, Merck announced a second wave of brand transfers from its Biopharma business to the Consumer Health business. These start from January 2016 onwards in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru and then in 2017 in Chile. The brands involved in the transfer are Anemidox® / Confer® , a treatment and prevention of iron deficiency related anemia at every stage of life; and Hepabionta® , a liver protector.
Uta Kemmerich-Keil explained, “We have decided to transfer these brands as all of them have great potential for consumerization. Leveraging this approach, we will further develop these brands and thereby generate further growth.”
