Apoteket AB is the national pharmaceuticals retailing former monopoly in Sweden. Apoteket AB, formerly Apoteksbolaget, is a government owned enterprise reporting to the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs.
The company was founded in 1970 under the name Apoteksbolaget AB. In 1998 the name was changed to the current one, Apoteket AB.
On 1 July 2009, the government monopoly was lifted. The Swedish government cited the fact of Sweden being the only democracy, along with Cuba and North Korea, to retain its monopoly as an argument for its abolishment.
