Clicks Group Profile
Clicks Group Profile

Founded over 55 years ago in 1968, the group has been listed on the JSE since 1996. Following changes in South African legislation in 2003 to allow corporate pharmacy ownership, the group entered the retail pharmacy market with the opening of the first Clicks pharmacy in 2004. Today the group is a leader in the healthcare market, in both retail pharmacy through Clicks and pharmaceutical wholesaling through UPD.
