About Kohl & Frisch

Who We Are

Kohl & Frisch is Canada’s leading healthcare distributor. Since 1916, it has been our tradition to provide the best possible service to our customers and to our suppliers. This service commitment has been not only a tradition, but also a corporate mission.

As the only Canadian-owned national full-line distributor, Kohl & Frisch is strategically located in eight pharmaceutical distribution centres across Canada. Through excellence in technology and innovation, we are fully equipped to service leading chain retailers, independent pharmacies, clinics, and hospitals across the country for all of their Rx, OTC, HHC and front-shop needs.


As the essential link between pharmaceutical manufacturers and healthcare providers, our goal is simple yet challenging – combine the desires of the manufacturer for effective distribution of their products with the needs of the customer for a steady, reliable source of a variety of products at attractive prices.

We never choose short-term gain over long-term partnership and, over the years, we’ve built strong relationships with people who share these values. It is a true business partnership – all three links in the supply chain working toward a common goal – of which we are proud to be a part.
