A major South African pharmaceutical company, Adcock Ingram is a South African pharmaceutical company. The company is divided into two divisions, its pharmaceutical business and its health care business with a market capitalisation of about R9 billion.
In 1890 E.J. Adcock Pharmacy opened its doors in Krugersdorp. In 1937 they launched Ingram's Camphor Cream, and the company moved into the pharmaceutical procution field, eventually assuming the name it now uses.
Over the years the company has donated a large amount of money to the arts and social upliftment programmes in South Africa. Among the arts projects sponsored over the years, particularly under the influence of Norman Nossel in the 1980s, have been music scholarships, music commissions and the theatre book The Breytie Book (edited by Temple Hauptfleisch, published by The Limelight Press, 1985)
