Mandala International is a leader in regulatory, financial and administrative consulting services for businesses seeking to grow in the Brazilian health-and-cosmetics sector. Regardless of a company’s size and whether it is established in the Brazilian market or not, Mandala International provides bespoke solutions to optimise every step in its client-company’s development. The specialist consultancy firm, acting as a hosting company and master distributor, focuses on the health, cosmetics and food sectors.
Mandala International, a hosting company and master distributor specialising in the Brazilian market, works with interested parties in the fields of health (including the medical sector), cosmetics and wellness, along with the food and food-supplement industries. The company holds all the licences and accreditations required for authorisation as a bona fide importer, exporter and distributor in Brazil, therefore facilitating international businesses’ access to the Brazilian market by becoming their trusted third-party partner. The Mandala team is known and acknowledged by local parties for its competence, which provides credibility to any working relationship involving the main players in the market, such as distributors, investors, hospital managers, pharmacists and embassy officials.
Brazilian legislation stipulates that only companies governed by Brazilian law and duly authorised by Anvisa, the national health regulatory agency, may import and commercialise medical products. Businesses seeking to penetrate this market are therefore given three options: to establish a subsidiary; to find a local distributor (who will generally represent several brands), which is an option that usually results in failure within a 24-month period; and, finally, to contact Mandala International.
Mandala International’s service constitutes a smart alternative to creating a Brazilian subsidiary — a lengthy and costly procedure that can turn into a joint venture or an acquisition, which will be followed by the registration of both the company and its products with Anvisa.
Mandala International’s solution is also an alternative to working with a local Anvisa-vetted distributor who is qualified to market goods in Brazil. These distributors are required to be the sole registering entity, which, in Brazil, is tantamount to transferring confidential information — relating to know-how, product intelligence, design and manufacturing — free of charge. In the event that the contract is signed, the distributor then becomes the de facto owner of the company’s products for a five-year period.
To ensure a smooth settlement in Brazil, Mandala International provides a full range of short-, medium- and long-term administrative, financial and legal solutions to handle issues such as address registration (for the business), sales administration, logistics, and human-resources management.
Mandala International is a hosting company and master distributor that helps businesses to retain autonomy, to decide at what pace and in what volumes they wish to market their products, and to choose freely their local distributors. Mandala International makes it possible to separate the legal and the commercial aspects of the business, managing all regulatory and administrative matters, so that companies may focus on their core business activity.
