MEXICO CITY, Aug. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Genomma Lab Internacional, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: LABB) ("Genomma Lab" or "the Company"), one of the leading pharmaceutical and personal care product companies in Mexico with an expanding international presence, today announced that the Mexican Ministry of Health's Federal Committee for Protection from Sanitary Risks ("COFEPRIS") has granted its approval of the sanitary license for the oral liquids, topical liquids and tablet coatings operations at Genomma Lab's Medicinas y Medicamentos Nacionales, S.A. de C.V. ("MMN") manufacturing facility in the State of Mexico.

The Company's OTC plant Operating License phase has therefore concluded and all manufacturing lines are able to manufacture a wide range of pharmaceutical products, effective immediately.

Rodrigo Herrera, Genomma Lab's Chairman, commented: "The expanded operating license enables Genomma to now manufacture an extensive line of pharmaceutical dosage forms, representing a crucial milestone on our journey and further strengthening Genomma's position as the Pharma and Personal Care products leader in the Americas."

He continued, "The Plant has been meticulously designed to yield a maximum return on invested capital, fueling a trajectory of profitable and enduring expansion. We remain focused on these and other important initiatives to ensure ongoing efficiency gains and profitability."

Next Phases:

Genomma's manufacturing facility was granted its operating license and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification in September 2021 for its solid and semi-solid pharmaceutical dosage forms. This GMP permits Genomma to sell manufactured products in the domestic market.
