Zar & Zar was founded in 1995 as a Sole Trading Company Limited by Dr. Myo Thant with an intention to import, market, and distribute medical products in Myanmar. Inspired by his experience as a physician and a public health professional, Dr. Myo Thant wanted to increase accessibility to drugs and medical equipment in Myanmar. The Company started with less than five employees with turnover volume of not more than US$ 10,000. Over twenty years, it has grown to become one of the leading distributors in the Myanmar pharmaceuticals industry with annual turnover of US$ 10 millions. With a dedicated sales and distribution team for different regions of Myanmar and representation on several healthcare industry associations, Zar & Zar has established decades-long relationships with healthcare professionals, public health institutions, and our valued customers all over the country.
In 1989, Dr. Myo Thant , our founder and Managing Director, finished his graduate studies with a Graduate Diploma of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, and a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Mahidol University in , Thailand. Shortly after, , Myanmar opened up and gradually shifted towards a market economy. In seizing the opportunity, Dr. Myo Than started his very first trading business through border trade with Thailand. He co-founded Mega Products Limited, Myanmar, which is the Branch Company of Mega Products Limited, Thailand. Following his entrepreneurial drive, he left Mega after seven7 years and started his own business in 1995, which has now grown into Zar & Zar Group of Companies.Since then, Zar & Zar Group has been distributing pharmaceutical products and medical equipment for two decades. In 2016, we expanded our product portfolio to include FMCG products, such as batteries and oral care products.
