Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. announced a new, strategic corporate identity program to build its global brand. The world’s leading producer of medicines said it is building on its strong global footprint, size and scale, to reinforce its focus on making these medicines more accessible. 

According to a press release, this next phase of Teva’s evolution is signaled by the adoption of a new brand, which is being introduced and embedded within the company over the next 12 months. The brand embodies a new promise, vision and identity for Teva and will bring to life the purpose and values the company has instilled in its employees.

Teva plans to introduce the new brand to its 43,000 employees around the world prior to launching the brand externally.
