Who are we?
Veritas Biomed is a Scottish based healthcare scientific development and marketing business who’s mission is to research, develop and commercialise novel healthcare products which offer the opportunity to make a real difference to consumer’s lives – focusing on products and technologies which can help consumers and patients adopt a healthier lifestyle.
The Company benefits from having an entrepreneurial Management Team, close links with leading academics in the respective fields, and intimate knowledge of pharmaceuticals and consumer healthcare markets. In addition to their own internal research and development activities, the company works with a range of external laboratories and leading researchers in the UK and Europe.
Veritas Biomed has formed a development partnership with the original inventor and global patent holder of the electronic cigarette (Ruyan). This partnership has capitalised on the joint experiences of the companies enabling the businesses to prepare for the launch of a unique product – Puritane The Smoking Alternative, with the first global launch of a totally new generation product in the UK in April 2013. This unique innovation is covered by Ruyan’s extensive patents and the intellectual property is protected by current and pending patent applications.
The team at Veritas Biomed have brought extensive International pharmaceutical experience to the partnership. The team is led by the Managing Director, Andrew Tasker who was responsible for bringing the first nicotine patch to the consumer healthcare market place over 20 years ago, and former involvement in other brand leading consumer and pharmacy nicotine alternative products. Together with a leading team of healthcare experts they bring extensive experience in smoking alternatives to this unique innovation, and the knowledge base comes from years of laboratory and clinical research.
The company is continuing to build a strong, widely experienced and highly motivated team which is driving its continuing development.
The business is establishing a Scottish production base to support the next stage of it’s rapid development.
Puritane: The Smoking Alternative is a registered Trade Mark.
The Veritas Biomed team have a long history in pharmaceuticals and consumer healthcare, and hence believe pharmacy is the correct place to purchase leading innovation. We believe the pharmacist and highly trained support team play a key role in helping consumers improve their lifestyles and will be working closely with Pharmacy in the launch of our new products.
