We leverage the expertise of our subsidiary Francopia, a leading integrated opiate manufacturer and distributor.

Our experience spans agronomic research, industrial and agricultural production, and distribution—all backed by a vast network and robust regulatory support to ensure our clients’ success. 

EUROAPI through its subsidiary Francopia acts as a manufacturer/distributor for its entire opiate and opioid API portfolio, which is manufactured at a Sanofi dedicated site using a continuous extraction process. With 20 and 30 quality audits each year, this site is regularly inspected by international authorities such as the FDA, MFDS, PMDA, ANVISA, and Tr MOH.

We offer an integrated package using on-the-ground farming and extraction in France, along with hundreds of tons of continuous extraction capabilities.
