Subsequently, the winners' shortlist is packed with forty of the industry's most innovative companies and individuals who are truly shaping the future of pharma.

Since 2003, the CPhI Pharma Awards, powered by Informa Pharma Intelligence have focused on recognising innovation in the pharmaceutical industry, applauding pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies engaged in the design, development, manufacture, production and distribution of large and small molecule drug products.
