We have four medical and healthcare-focused companies operating within Australia: Johnson & Johnson Medical, Janssen, Johnson & Johnson Pacific and Tasmanian Alkaloids.
Tasmanian Alkaloids Pty Ltd is in the business of pain relief. Located in Westbury, near Launceston, it extracts alkaloids used in the manufacture of opiate-based pain-control medicines from poppy straw.
Around 99% of this product is exported, making Tasmanian Alkaloids the largest manufacturer of active pharmaceutical ingredients in Australia. It supplies a remarkable 45-50% of the world’s demand for medicinal opiates.
Tasmanian Alkaloids contracts approximately 530 Tasmanian farmers to grow the poppy crop. An additional 50 contractors are linked to the agricultural operations. Export earnings of about AUD$170 million flow through the company to the Tasmanian economy with a multiplier effect of five times.
