Sanofi Strengthens Healthy Aging Portfolio with Acquisition of America’s Rising Star: Qunol®

Sanofi is excited to announce the acquisition of Qunol®, a U.S.-based, market-leading brand in health and wellness. This acquisition bolsters Sanofi’s Consumer Healthcare’s (CHC) Vitamin, Mineral and Supplements (VMS) category, allowing the company to focus on the active ‘healthy aging’ segment.

With Qunol’s CoQ10 in heart health and Turmeric in joint health, Sanofi’s CHC gains a profitable growth brand with a double-digit growth rate. As a leader in consumer healthcare, this acquisition is part of Sanofi’s strategic plan to capitalize on consumer demand for chronic conditions and achieve continued success through growth opportunities and value creation.

We are thrilled to welcome Qunol to the Consumer Healthcare portfolio, strengthening our commitment to wellness with a focus on promoting healthy aging. This acquisition opens up a whole new avenue for us to grow our U.S. presence and helps us fill one of our white spaces in the country.

Our VMS range of products has provided an opportunity for preventive health that has gained even more importance in the wake of COVID-19, and adding Qunol to the mix serves to reinforce this health-focused approach. We look forward to adding more health into the lives of our consumers with Qunol’s innovative offerings.

Qunol CoQ10 and Turmeric are scientifically backed and well-positioned in their respective markets. Underscoring their excellent quality and efficacy, the Qunol brand has earned high consumer loyalty as well as gained strong brand equity.

As part of the Sanofi CHC alliance, the Qunol mark will stand to benefit in being catapulted into other chronic conditions and making its presence felt in markets beyond the United States.
