Our story begins in 1956 when the late Mr. A.E. Patel founded our business first as a modest retail outlet, then as a wholesale and distributor on SSR (ex-Deforges) Street, Port Louis. With a vision to make quality care accessible to all, Mr. Patel laid the foundation based on the principles of unwavering integrity, excellence, and commitment to customer satisfaction and patient care for AEP to grow into the trusted and reliable partner in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, and wellness industry it is today. From sourcing high-quality products from manufacturers to ensuring their efficient delivery to healthcare and wellness providers, AEP’s dedication to ensuring the availability and accessibility of vital pharmaceuticals and innovative healthcare and wellness products is unparalleled.
