Ascendis Health

Our Story

Ascendis Health has grown from its humble roots in South Africa to become a multinational health and care company with a remarkable portfolio of market-leading products and solutions. Our bold vision, innovative approach and commitment to health and care have seen us grow and thrive, meeting customer needs and expectations, daily.

Our story isn’t just told by the numbers and the strategic plans which form the framework of our success, but by the people behind our vision, strategy and brands. Our core values of integrity, entrepreneurial spirit and success uphold everything we do, and form a part of every interaction we have.

Ascendis Health products and brands may be diverse and different, but they all have one thing in common – they are about health and care.

It is important to us that each of our divisions of Ascendis Consumer Brands, Ascendis Pharma-Med and Ascendis Phyto-Vet, bring real benefits to our customers, delivering effective wellness, nutrition, and medical and environmental solutions. Our belief is that healthy people mean healthier homes in a healthier world.

Ascendis Health’s South African roots add a unique flavour to our ethos and our goals. We have the African energy at our heart – we are single-minded and focused, but we are also diverse and dynamic, just like the land that inspires us.

Ascendis Health’s people share a commitment to the future and bring both fun and vitality to everything we do, every market we enter and every challenge we undertake.

This is why we lead the way in the health and care market and why we deliver consistent results. It is what empowers us as we continue forward with our synergistic vision across the industry’s value chain – from the import of raw materials and manufacturing, to distribution through retail, wholesale and direct channels.

Our culture is diverse with a unified sense of purpose, driving our mission to be a leader in health and care and to tell the singular story of Ascendis – one team, one goal, hundreds of committed people around the world.
