How can I find distribution agents in EU Countries
I am looking to export globally, in-particular to EU countries. I would like to find Pharmaceutical distribution agents, supermarkets suppliers and wholesalers to promote/sell my products which are natural weight loss supplements – Can anyone help with this?
All products manufactured in and exported from the United Kingdom.
both Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and UKTI can help you source distributors for your products. EEN has a specific service where you can search for European partners and /or have your own partner search profile which can be seen by businesses across your targeted countries. See http://www.een-london.co.uk/lnx/services/tech_search.asp?ContentID=0192&BackTo=0&savemsg=&CustomMessage=
UKTI has a Business Opportunities website where you can get alerts posted by UK embassy posts across the world (see http://www.businessopportunities.ukti.gov.uk/home.html?guid=007F2BA1708171ABA340CE2739F4D310) and runs advisory services for exporters.

I hope this helps.
Have tried the two big UK/European Pharmaceutical distributors?
Alliance are based in Chessington Surrey and are owned by Boots are one of Europes biggest distributors to this channel. The second largest pharm wholesaler Is AAH based in Coventry. They also have strong connections as they are German owned ( Celesio ). You can google their contact numbers and give them a call.
