Extensive experience

Over 70 years of industry leading expertise

ICE Pharma was established in 1949, by husband-and-wife team Dr Walter and Ida Bartoli. From humble origins in Northern Italy, and under the management of Enzo Bartoli, the company grew both organically and by acquisition into the worldwide group that we are today.

Our company boasts more than a 70 year track record as an expert in our field and as a reliable and trusted supplier to the pharmaceutical market. During this time we have consolidated our position as a worldwide leader in the manufacture of Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA).

Since 2019 ICE Pharma has been owned by Advent International, a major global private equity group. This support has accelerated the company’s development and following a series of successful acquisitions the group has grown in strength and depth. We now operate a network of 7 interconnected manufacturing sites serving customers in over 50 countries.
