As a leader in the field of Inhalation, DFE pharma offers the pharmaceutical industry the most optimal solution for the development of their Dry Powder Inhalation (DPI) drug. DFE pharma is a partner for pharmaceutical companies developing drugs for pulmonary delivery for many years. We offer a wide range of standard products, plus the option to customize our products to meet your specific needs.


Most medicines, from over the counter treatments to prescription drugs, are taken by mouth in the form of tablets and capsules. Oral medicines are convenient, flexible and cost-effective. They can be produced in large numbers very fast (production rates of 1 million per hour can be achieved). Variants that are precisely suited to individual preferences and needs can easily be developed.

We develop, produce and supply excipients for use in oral solid dose and dry powder inhalation, but as a supplier of complete solutions we do a lot more than that.

That makes us more than just a supplier. We are recognised as a true partner to the pharmaceutical industry in helping people round the world lead healthier lives.
