Max Rombi was a veterinarian who was passionate about phytotherapy. In 1980 he decided to focus on this passion. He created Arkopharma Laboratories to modernise the old-fashioned image of how plants were used in pharmacy. He was then at the origin of the greatest discoveries and innovations in phytotherapy. These include Arkogélules®, the first capsules based on natural active ingredients. In 2008, Dr. Rombi passed control of the Group to one of his sons, Philippe, who at 47 years of age became the new President.
