DISCH is a leader in the development of specialised, solid galenic formulations providing both manufacturing and packaging technologies for pharmaceuticals, special foods (nutraceuticals) and sweets. We work as a contract manufacturer for companies in the pharmaceutical industry as well as for a demanding clientele from the food industry and for large retail chains.


Pharmaceuticals and foods

DISCH can look back on 100 years of company history. Founded by Jakob Disch in 1903, the company specialised in food production. In 1967, DISCH concentrated on the production of hard candies and 1993 DISCH obtained a licence for the manufacturing of medications by the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products (swissmedic).

Since 2003 DISCH has worked primarily in the pharmaceutical area. The production of pharmaceuticals and foods with specific requirements now makes up around 80% of our activities.


A leading contract manufacturer

With an increasing focus on the needs of the pharmaceutical industry, we have re-structured ourselves technologically and organisationally, in order to meet the high standards of our customers as well as those of the authorities. The formulations we manufacture are based on technologies from the confections industry. In this specialised area we are among the leading contract manufacturers in Europe.

As a privately-held company our thinking and actions are focused on the long term. It is our goal to continuously develop the company for the benefit of all involved parties in order to offer the highest possible degree of continuity, safety and quality.

Our commitment

  • Full service from concept to product launch
  • Manufacturing according to specific standards (Food or GMP) and Licensed by Swissmedic
  • Quality reviews, stability studies and development of testing methods
