Who are we?
Nicolas Delaporte has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry as well as a master’s in chemistry and has followed master’s courses in business management. He then obtained a doctorate in Chemistry at Montreal. After a year of postdoctoral study in France at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), he returned to Quebec to take up a research position at the Hydro-Quebec Research Institute (IREQ).
Sara Abchir has a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. During her schooling, she followed specific courses such as human nutrition and management of SMEs, which prepared her to the growing up of Meditrina Pharma.
Meditrina’s founders met on the benches of the university. The idea of founding a company has been a very deep desire from the beginning of their meeting. Being both scientists, their common mission is to use scientific progress to help others. Together, they decided to found Meditrina Pharma. Nowaday, society has nutritional deficiencies due to the reduction of physical effort and the trivialization of refined products. At the same time, modern agriculture is depleted in specific nutrients. (Ex: the tomato from 100 years ago has more nutrients than the tomato from today). Excess of salt, fat and sugar have led to a prevalence of diabetes, cholesterol, obesity and all types of cancer. Fortunately, commercial supplements exist to give your body what he needs. However, we have found that the dietary supplements offered in pharmacy are not always well adapted for our daily needs. Some of them are very dissociative and only contain one active ingredient like vitamin D, for example. We rapidly identified the problem and the opportunity to offer complete and affordable products considering the active ingredients combined. Supported by our mentor, which possesses thirty years of experience in the pharmaceutical field, we have developed unique food supplements in Quebec and #Made in Montreal.
The mission of the Meditrina Pharma laboratory is to design and market innovative nutritional supplements with unique formulations in Canada and accessible to anyone who wants to regain its well-being and be in good health.
- Become a key actor in natural health products domain (food supplements, cosmetics, oils, meal replacements) across Canada.

We are committed to providing high quality, complete and price competitive products. Our values constitute the DNA of the company: entrepreneurship, transparency, equality, tolerance, performance, innovation, altruism, environment.
