Life Science, Healthcare & Foods

Life science is the business of the essentials, the things we need to survive and remain healthy, and many parts of this ever changing industry are expected to have a very bright future. So perhaps it’s no surprise to anyone that it takes extensive laws to regulate the business made in the area of life science, healthcare and food.

That is why Cirio's sector group for life science, healthcare & food (from here on referred to as the Cirio life science team) is one of the largest and most experienced in Sweden, with a unique full-service offering.
