Asked about the strategy that they will implement in Mexico, Jose Gonzalez, the President of Farma Leones stated: “We would like to walk before we run.” He added: “The Mexican market, being so brand conscious will need some time to trust a new brand. As part of our growth strategy, we would like to start on our warm market first, which is the health care before we introduce BelleMa in the consumer market.” Jose Gonzalez also shared that as part of the company’s dedication into fulfilling its commitment with BelleMa, Farma Leones just opened their offices in Mexico City, adding to its Monterrey and Guadalajara operations. The Mexico City Branch will serve as a Sales Office and Distribution Center for all its product lines, including BelleMa breast pumps and will be the Consumer Division Hub once the brand is ready to be launched for retail. Jose Gonzalez, prior to joining the family business worked as a Buyer for a few major consumer retail chains in the Mexican region and is very confident that Farma Leones will be a good partner for BelleMa to handle the entire Mexican market.
Farmacia Leones will carry all the BelleMa breast pump models and accessories which include two models on single electric breast pumps (the Mango Series) and two models on double electric breast pumps (Melon Double and Effective Pro).
