A MAJOR new pact between the Pharmacy Guild’s Gold Cross brand and Weight Watchers was announced yesterday evening at APP on the Gold Coast. Almost five years in the making, the new arrangement is set to reinforce pharmacy’s credentials as a “weight loss destination” and includes a new, exclusive, pharmacy-only range of weight management information kits. Weight Watchers MD Joseph Saad – well known to the pharmacy industry through his previous role as head of Pfizer’s local consumer healthcare products division – said there was huge opportunity to improve the health of Australians via the initiative. Pictured above at yesterday’s launch are, from left: Pharmacy Guild National President Kos Sclavos; Joseph Saad, Weight Watchers Australasia Managing Director; and Gold Cross General Manager, Trevor Clarkin.
