Quality is Our Mission

All Universal employees undergo Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Awareness Training which covers the proper handling, storage, and delivery of products and the proper following of procedures. Employees also receive Counterfeit & Falsified Medicines Training and carefully follow Defective Medicines Reporting processes. Universal's warehouses undergo precise temperature mappings seasonally, with daily temperature recordings down to the tenth of a degree. All of these practices further contribute to the high quality of products and services we provide to our customers.
