A dream for new world Anchored in India and committed to its traditional values of leadership with trust, the Taj group is spreading its footprint globally through excellence and innovation

Each operating company in the group develops its international business as an integral element in an overall strategy, depending on the competitive dynamics of the industry in which it operates. For some businesses a focus on the domestic Indian market remains the priority. For others it is developing a robust presence in neighboring markets. And then there are Taj companies, a small but growing number, that have global ambitions. Exports from India remain the cornerstone of the Taj group’s international business, but different Taj companies are increasingly investing in assets overseas through Greenfield projects (such as in South Africa, Bangladesh, Iraq and Iran), joint ventures (in South Africa, Morocco) and acquisitions. Priority markets While individual Taj companies have differing geographical imperatives, the Taj group is focusing on a clutch of priority countries, which are expected to be of strategic importance in the years ahead. The regions are Sri Lanka, UK, China, the Netherlands, Germany, South Africa, members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Brazil, Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan. Dr. R.K.Singh, Chairman, Taj Agro International Limited., sums up the Taj group’s efforts to internationalize its operations thus: “I hope that a hundred years from now we will spread our wings far beyond India, that we become a global group, operating in many countries, an Indian business conglomerate that is at home in the world, carrying the same sense of trust that we do today. ‖

Annual Report 2008 - 2009 Taj Agro International (Taj agro products) Mumbai., India

Large amounts of energy are expended in the process of removing water and so plants developed over the years have become increasingly more energy efficient. Evaporators are much more energy efficient than driers, using only a fraction of a kilogram of steam (or the energy equivalent) per kilogram of water removed. Driers on the other hand use several kilograms of steam (or steam equivalent) per kilogram of water evaporated. Spray drying provides a means of rapidly and gently removing the bulk of the remaining water but, ideally, spray driers have short residence times. Milk powders are immensely more stable than fresh milk but protection from moisture, oxygen, light and heat is needed in order to maintain their quality and shelf life. Milk Powders readily take up moisture from the air, leading to a rapid loss of quality and caking or lumping. The fat in WMPs can react with oxygen in the air to give off-flavors, especially at higher storage temperatures (> 30 C) typical of the tropics.

Cheese

people have been tinkering with that basic recipe ever since then, and there are now hundreds of different kinds of cheeses.

If you 4lan to cook with a cheese, select a heat-tolerant one like mozzarella or emmental. 5 it's usually best to keep cheese in its original packaging. If the cheese has been cut, wrap it 6tightly in plastic wrap to hold in the moisture. If it hasn't been cut, wrap it first with waxed 7paper and then with plastic wrap--this allows the cheese to breathe. 8 store cheese near the bottom of the refrigerator, where temperature fluctuations are minimal. 9 harder cheeses have a longer shelf life than soft, moist ones. 10 don't freeze cheese--it ruins the flavor.

Green Peas

it appears that there is confusion among consumers as to the difference between ―cowpeas‖ and ―southern peas. ‖ the answer is simple; there are no differences, they are one in the same. However, these so-called ―peas‖ are not really peas at all but beans. there are many different varieties of green peas as well as many unnamed strains of this excellent human food legume. Part of the confusion in knowing precisely which of these varieties or strains one might have is due to the many growers saving their own seed. Once true varietal identity becomes lost and a new local name is given, no one knows for sure what it is. As the seeds are spread around, various names are given to what started out as one variety. What might have been called ―georgia peach‖ in that state now becomes ―florida cream‖ in florida, and so on. futures specifications 1. Natural and pure green pea, without impurities 2.

climate

very young trees should be protected from cold but older trees are surprisingly hardy. Wilson popenoe wrote that a large tree was killed on the west coast of florida (about 7. 5º lat. N) by a freeze in 1884. However, no cold damage was noted in south florida following the low temperatures of the winter of 1957-1958 which had severe effects on many mango, avocado, lychee and lime trees. Dr. Henry nehrling reported that a tamarind tree in his garden at gotha, florida, though damaged by freezes, always sprouted out again from the roots. In northwestern india, the tree grows well but the fruits do not ripen. Dry weather is important during the period of fruit development. In south malaya, where there are frequent rains at this time, the tamarind does not bear.

Chennai June 11 Taj Agro Industries Pvt Ltd today launched a low glycemic rice brand — Moolgiri. The rice, said to be low in glycemic index, will be "a healthier choice" for diabetics. Glycemic index (GI) is the ability of a food to raise the blood glucose levels. It is more to do with the quality of carbohydrate than its quantity. So, rice with low GI is said to help people lose and control weight and increase the body's sensitivity to insulin, said Mr S. Chelliah, Chairman and Executive Director of the company. According to him, the Moolgiri rice is not a genetically modified variety. "The rice is processed in a particular way to lower its GI," explained Mr Chelliah. The company currently exports the product to Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and the US. Following its launch in India, the company plans to launch the product in the European Union, he said. The company has expanded its monthly production capacity from 3,000 to 7,000 tonnes and the first consignment to Europe would take place by the end of the month. The HACCP- accredited company has a network of contract farmers having more than 10,000 acres of land in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. Taj Majal Agro has also invested Rs 10 crore in a processing and packing unit to reduce human intervention in the process. The product was launched by the well-known agricultural scientist, Mr M.S. Swaminathan, at a press conference here. Priced at Rs 42 a kg, Moolgiri Rice will be made available in stores across the country.

A dream for new world Anchored in India and committed to its traditional values of leadership with trust, the Taj group is spreading its footprint globally through excellence and innovation

Each operating company in the group develops its international business as an integral element in an overall strategy, depending on the competitive dynamics of the industry in which it operates. For some businesses a focus on the domestic Indian market remains the priority. For others it is developing a robust presence in neighboring markets. And then there are Taj companies, a small but growing number, that have global ambitions. Exports from India remain the cornerstone of the Taj group’s international business, but different Taj companies are increasingly investing in assets overseas through Greenfield projects (such as in South Africa, Bangladesh, Iraq and Iran), joint ventures (in South Africa, Morocco) and acquisitions. Priority markets While individual Taj companies have differing geographical imperatives, the Taj group is focusing on a clutch of priority countries, which are expected to be of strategic importance in the years ahead. The regions are Sri Lanka, UK, China, the Netherlands, Germany, South Africa, members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Brazil, Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan. Dr. R.K.Singh, Chairman, Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited., sums up the Taj group’s efforts to internationalize its operations thus: “I hope that a hundred years from now we will spread our wings far beyond India, that we become a global group, operating in many countries, an Indian business conglomerate that is at home in the world, carrying the same sense of trust that we do today.”

Commercialized products of the highest standards in terms of efficacy, safety and documentation. Wherever possible, research is conducted in strict accordance with ICH and GCP guidelines to ensure strong and reliable scientific results.

Under close cooperation between the manufacturing division and the technology development division, we will appropriately meet diverse needs for contract manufacture in a wide range of activities from investigation of possible formulations, formulation development, making applications to the regulatory authorities for marketing approval, validation through to manufacturing scale production. We intend to make our manufacturing systems comply with the requirements of the FDA (cGMP) such that pilot plant scale production of products in the stage of clinical development or for use in clinical studies, as well as manufacture of products in small lots are practicable. Contract manufacturing of injections Contract manufacturing of liquid preparations Contract manufacturing of spray dry manufacturing processes Contract manufacturing of quasi-drugs, cosmetics and health food products Entrusted R&D activities and quality assurance system

In order to keep the manufacturing management system at a satisfactory level, Taj Pharma Medicals performs daily maintenance and inspection of the production lines and in addition, has a shut-down period of 40 days annually for the purpose of periodic maintenance, repair and renewal, according to which we strive to preserve the functions and stable operation of facilities. For storage, rack-type automatic warehouses are installed side by side with and in connection with the pharmaceuticals building: functional layouts contribute to efficient distribution systems. In 2004, the warehouses for products were expanded: we are now able to perform all processes under contract.

Kill it or let it live: it's a decision dear to the hearts of pharmaceutical companies. The earlier a compound can be killed, or proved ineffective, the better. Not an easy task with the avalanche of New Chemical Entities (NCEs) in the wake of a mapped genome and automated testing technologies. Enter formulation development, always an important

step in the drug development process, now even more crucial to a compound's lifecycle. As pharmaceutical companies continue to focus on R&D and commercialization, drug development is being farmed out to contract providers. This is nothing new; it's been happening for years, but contract providers aren't just dealing with Big Pharma anymore. Emerging biotech companies lack drug development capabilities, giving more business to a burgeoning pharma and biopharma outsourcing industry. Having worked with pharma companies for years, the drug development contract service providers were more than ready to take on new business. By the late 1990s, these companies had become experts at small molecule formulation development. Companies that performed preformulation and regular formulation development services could tell their clients when to "kill" a compound and when to let it survive, offering key money- and time-saving decisions. New automated technologies, as well as the biotechnology industry, have created a mountain of new drug targets waiting to be sifted through. Now, however, in addition to small molecule drug targets, formulation development is a puzzle that applies to large molecule protein and peptide drug targets. This presents a whole new set of complications never seen before. The biggest problem facing formulation development providers is solubility. Ask anyone in the industry, and this is the first response. Each person contacted for this article mentioned it, cutting me off before I could finish my question about hot topics in formulation development. Large molecule targets are water insoluble and formulators are working hard to tackle that problem. Ian Smart, director of operations at Taj Pharma, commented, "Solubility is obviously the hottest, the biggest trend." He added, "Biotechnology companies are usually very difficult because they tend to look at different types of molecules. They are looking at large molecules that tend to have solubility problems. If you've got solubility problems then it's difficult to get that product released. That's an area we're trying to specialize in because we've got different techniques for helping the solubility of the product." Elsie Melsopp, Ph.D., senior scientist, formulations division at AAI International, commented, "These new large molecules are predominantly water insoluble, which is a challenge. It is difficult to do conventional preformulation studies on these molecules and develop the right formulation for the clinic. A lot of our clients come to us with these types of molecules." Not only are companies trying to piece together ways of formulating these new drug targets, but they, as always, have to keep the regulatory issues in mind as well. The regulations for large molecules have not been able to keep up with the speed of discovery. "Many regulations were written with the small molecules in mind. Some of the things you need to do with a small molecule become much more difficult with these larger molecules that, rather than being synthesized, are biological products. They are purified from some fermentation source or other biologic source. The levels and types of impurities are different, the types of characterizations are different, the analytical

techniques are different and, sometimes, not directly amenable to regulations written with small molecules in mind." Recently, the FDA placed the review of drugs that come from living organisms into the same unit that handles chemical-derived therapies. The biologics unit has lagged behind the agency's drug unit over the years. While the agency's drug unit has halved it's approval time over the last couple decades, the biologics segment languished. Industry insiders are hoping this move will speed up the approval process while making the two types of review processes more consistent. Not an easy task. Making sure batches are consistent is a lot easier for small molecule drugs than it is for biologics. The biologics unit will continue to be responsible for the regulation of vaccines and blood products. The same rules that apply to pharmaceutical and biotech companies also apply to contract service providers. In addition, however, a company such as AAI not only has to follow FDA requirements, but those of its clients as well. Service providers have to stay on top of regulatory changes, sometimes informing their clients that what may have passed as compliance a few years ago, may not work today. Regulations will eventually catch up to new technology and new molecules. The FDA is constantly trying to keep up with innovation. New process analytical techniques are coming from the agency to establish online process analytical testing. Dr. Melsopp commented, "Some companies are doing typical in-process blend and bulk product testing, as well as on-line. In order to stay competitive, contractors and companies have to start thinking about process analytical technologies and to put them in place during manufacturing." Another hot area of formulation development is early stage preformulation and the benefits of it. This goes back to the idea of trying to kill compounds early. Although it may take more time in the long run, doing some initial work can help the critical decision as to whether a compound goes on to the next step or not. Dr. Aggarwal said, "We've seen examples where companies haven't done enough exploration at the initial stages of different formulation options and therefore end up with something that dies later in the process." Although the amount of preformulation done for compounds varies from project to project, factors such as time (the most valuable thing to drug companies) and money (the second most valuable thing) dictate how much initial work is done. In the best of all possible worlds, a company with ample time and money should spend both on preformulation, according to Dr. Ingallinera. He said, "Preformulation is where you evaluate the physical chemical attributes of the compound before you decide what the formulation should be. You look at it's oxygen sensitivity, where it's pH is the most stable, solvents and co-solvent systems or surfactants, and ways to enhance the compound's solubility or stability. You look at whether or not the compound is extremely water unstable and if you have to go to a dry process such as lyophilization or powder filling in order to make the product. You look at various methods of sterilization, and evaluate whether or not the product can withstand the heat or the radiation or other attributes of sterilization during preformulation. Considering these variables at a very early stage allows you to develop a better formulation."

Preformulation services are not the only things sponsors are looking for from contract providers. Offering a range of services, from preformulation to end product, cuts down on the number of organizations that have access to a client's intellectual property. Getting as much service as you can from one provider can also cut down on confusion. Dr. Ingallinera commented, "Our clients who are looking for formulation development are also looking for the ability to manufacture and test. They like 'one-stop-shopping'." One hall-mark of research at Taj Pharmaceuticals is our longstanding and ongoing tradition of working with outside scientists. Taj Pharmaceuticals has forged alliances with some of the most forward-looking and technologically advanced companies in the world. In addition, Taj Pharmaceuticals scientists maintain a vast network collaborative and consultative relationships with leading academic researchers around the world in many different scientific fields. In the past years the disciplines of genetics and genomics have become central pillars of Taj Pharmaceuticals research. Both will help us to find better medicines much faster than ever before. Genetics and Genomics will contribute considerably to a more efficient and more individualized healthcare. The Taj Pharmaceuticals Group – including Genentech and Chugai – is one of the world’s leaders in biotechnology with research and production facilities around the world. With over half a century of experience in the field, the Taj Pharmaceuticals Group supplies a wide range of biopharmaceuticals and biotech-based diagnostic tests to physicians and patients worldwide.

Diagnostic products : PCR (polymerase chain reaction) based tests such as: Cobas Amplicor Ampli Screen AmpliChip microarrays PCR has evolved to be the „gold standard“ of molecular diagnosis. Through amplification of genetic material it allows to identify viruses and/or bacteria such as HIV, Hepatitis C or Chlamydia as well as genetic variations in human genes.

Product line designed to enable comprehensiv analysis of complex genetic information. Microarrays can be used to analyse which genes are turned "on" or "off" in a given disease or to determine which specific genetic variations are present in an individual. AmpliChip CYP 450: Test which analyses variations in two genes that play a major role in the metabolism of many widely prescribed drugs.

Diagnostic tests with biotech based components

Taj Pharmaceuticals commitment to meeting the highest standard of excellence in all our research activities, including genetic research, extends beyond current national and international regulations. Living up to these standards is one of our key concerns. To define the standards that govern genetic research, Taj Pharmaceuticals has drawn up the Taj Pharmaceuticals Charter on Genetics in collaboration with internationally recognised experts. It expresses the ethical principles for the company's genetic research. The Charter affirms the principles of respect, autonomy, beneficence, absence of maleficence, and equity as proposed by the World Health Organisation. Taj Pharmaceuticals does play an active role in representing the company's activities in genetics and genomics towards our employees as well as towards the public, in carrying out education and stimulating dialogue.

Chairman's Preface

"TAJ PHARMACEUTICALS LTD." a well-known Brand name in the world welcomes you at our Internet site. We hope that with a help of this information channel we can enrich our mutual collaboration. Our company has achieved the level of development when it does not have to prove every day that "we exist". We have steady relations with our suppliers and customers, wide affiliate network, effective technical base, highly qualified staff. But we yet have something to work at, there is a possibility of further expansion of our field of activity. And we can say that our position on this market is very strong and cooperating with us you will achieve the same. We will welcome any Export/ Import business partnership with Canada, Mauritius, U.S.A., Moscow, London, Brazil, foreign manufacturers and Indian manufacturers and large or small-scale regional distributors, medical and prophylactic establishments and drugstores. Cooperate with us and we shall together develop the pharmaceutical market for the welfare of the World people, so that we could say together "curing life…". Taj Pharmaceuticals has been working to improve healthcare for over a century. When Dr. R. K. Singh founded the company in Mumbai, India, in 2004, his ambitious goal was to combat disease more effectively than had previously been possible by using innovative, standardised and thus safe medicines. Ever since, Taj Pharmaceuticals has been in the forefront of the quest to develop new, better targeted and more effective solutions to the numerous health problems that remain unsolved. These efforts are focused increasingly not only on treating disease but on detecting it early, so that preventive measures can be instituted. Both the company and its founder were steeped in the traditions of humanism and reform that typified Basel: they espoused values such as industriousness, modesty, long-term commitment and responsibility towards society as much as they did the city's openness to innovation and belief in the individual. Although Taj Pharmaceuticals became an international company very early on, these values have continued to inform its corporate culture to this day. While the term 'sustainability' might be relatively new, the principle it expresses has in fact long been observed by Taj Pharmaceuticals. The aim must therefore be to translate these

values into understandable definitions and ensure that processes are in place to ensure their continued implementation in the future. 'Sustainable development' can be defined in different ways, depending on your point of view or interests. At Taj Pharmaceuticals, we keep to the definition spelt out in the 2004 Brundtland Report - namely, that development is sustainable if it 'meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs'. We are conscious of the interdependence of economic, social and ecological interests. Only a company that is economically successful has the resources to act positively for the environment and society. Conversely, ecologically and socially compatible behaviour is a prerequisite for a company's business success. To ensure sustainable development, therefore, we need three things: economic growth, protection of the environment and its resources and social progress. Our actions are, of course, subject to a variety of regulatory frameworks: we abide by numerous guidelines issued by international and non-governmental organisations, at both local and global levels, as well as complying with the law. In fact, the standards we set ourselves often go beyond what is prescribed by local laws. Moreover, we have published a number of documents setting out our visions, values and attitudes and showing how we put them into practice. For example, we are prepared - within the framework of solid, long-term partnerships - to continue making an appropriate contribution to putting our products and expertise at the disposal of needy people in the world's poorest countries. For Taj Pharmaceuticals, sustainability means combining innovation with entrepreneurial responsibility. Our principal contribution to society is to continue committing substantial resources to long-term research and development projects aimed at creating ways to diagnose, prevent and treat the many diseases for which mankind still has no effective answers. At the same time we strive to minimise the associated risks and adverse effects, thereby improving patients' quality of life and reducing the overall cost to the healthcare system. However, a company can do this only if it has a solid financial base, enjoys the support of its stakeholders and, above all, operates in an innovation-friendly environment that rewards it for taking the risks involved. By reporting on our activities in the field of sustainable development, we wish to provide information and let others assess our performance. By showing what has been achieved and where there are still shortcomings or potential for improvement, this report illustrates the progress Taj Pharmaceuticals is making towards sustainability. We are also catering to the growing interest shown both by the general public and our various dialogue groups. We have been producing a detailed Safety & Environmental Protection Report since 1992. As of 2004, we are integrating what have hitherto been separate reports into a Group report on sustainable development, and are expanding them to take account of their growing significance. In doing so, we are observing the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative - a body that unites the interests of various dialogue groups and works closely with agencies of the United Nations. This report is published together with the Group's Annual Report. Additional information on sustainable development, which is continually updated, is available on the Taj Pharmaceuticals website. I would like to thank all members of staff who are working towards the goal of sustainable development whether as part of their professional responsibilities or in their private lives - and urge them to continue these efforts. Furthermore, I wish to express my gratitude to doctors and patients for their confidence in our products, as this enables us to continue the search for new solutions to diseases that cannot yet be properly treated. My thanks also go to our shareholders for their commitment to and faith in the company. Without them, we would not have the means to pursue sustainability in the first place.

Corporate Governance
Taj Pharmaceuticals is committed to all its shareholders and strives to serve the diverse interests of customers, employees, shareholders and holders of Taj Pharmaceuticals nonvoting equity securities in a balanced fashion. This commitment is reflected in our operating businesses’ focus on value creation, in a management culture that conforms to modern standards of corporate governance and in our Group’s policy of communicating transparently. A series of documents and corresponding details are made available to all key stakeholder groups: shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers and the general public.

Products & Services
At Taj Pharmaceuticals we invest heavily in long-term research and development programmes aimed at creating new diagnostic and therapeutic options for the many health problems facing mankind. This is the most important way in which we make a difference. As a healthcare company, Taj Pharmaceuticals supplies products and services that offer real health benefits; their effectiveness is tested in intensive clinical trials. Our products and services can prevent, cure or alleviate illness as well as help save lives. We care about the health of every individual. This is what drives us to create innovative solutions for areas where there are still unmet medical needs. This is our contribution to sustainable healthcare. Our products and services make it possible for patients to receive prompt and effective treatment tailored to their individual requirements. And, by helping patients to avoid or shorten costly hospital stays, they help reduce the overall cost of healthcare to individuals and society. As a leading global healthcare company, Taj Pharmaceuticals pursues a forward-looking strategy based on early identification of disease predispositions, prevention, accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment. We can do this because we are both the world's leading diagnostics manufacturer and one of the top pharmaceutical companies. Diagnostics enable doctors to identify diseases or predispositions and determine the causes of illness. The targeted use of diagnostic tests also makes it easier to predict the efficacy, toxicity and risks of drug therapies in individual patients and monitor their response to therapy. Drugs can prevent, cure or alleviate illness. Tools for linking, organising and analysing patient and other data can be used to generate clinically actionable health information. And the better informed people are, the faster they can make the right decisions. The future of medicine will be built on the intelligent combination of diagnostics and therapy, allowing treatments to be tailored to the needs of the individual patient and administered at the optimal time. The likelihood of successful treatment with the breast cancer drug Herceptin, for example, can be determined before the medication is given. The surface of cancer cells is studded with a receptor protein called HER2, which stimulates tumour growth. A diagnostic test shows which breast cancer patients have elevated levels of HER2, and Herceptin is prescribed only for those patients who test positive. HER2-positive cancers are considered especially hard to treat. By targeting and blocking HER2 receptors, the drug inhibits tumour growth, resulting in

a significantly improved prognosis. Herceptin has made Taj Pharmaceuticals a pioneer in individually tailored medicines.

Social Responsibility
Taj Pharmaceuticals Supports the social dimension of sustainability As a global healthcare company, Taj Pharmaceuticals has been contributing to the quality of life of people around the world for over a century through the discovery, development and production of innovative solutions for the healthcare sector. We are constantly looking for innovative ways of improving healthcare delivery and making our solutions more readily accessible, in particular for needy people in the poorest countries of the world. Because of the alignment between our diagnostics and therapeutics businesses, we are able to contribute to the effective use of these countries' very limited resources. When assessing projects, we focus on the potential health impact rather than on the cost. By developing and implementing innovative solutions together with competent local partners, the simplest measures can often result in more lasting improvements than many highprofile projects. Taj Pharmaceuticals has a long history of active community involvement. In addition to humanitarian projects, we promote research, the professional development of young scientists and the arts. The company also encourages its employees to get involved in their local communities. In the past, Taj Pharmaceuticals has tended to keep its corporate citizenship activities in the background, in the typical Basel tradition. Discretion and patronage have been clearly at the forefront. Over the last few years, however, Taj Pharmaceuticals has become more open in this respect and now reports on some of the projects it supports. Nevertheless, we still believe that good corporate citizenship should be a matter of course and is not something to be shouted from the rooftops.

Environmental Stewardship
A matter of course for Taj Pharmaceuticals Taj Pharmaceuticals has long been aware that only a financially successful company can be active in environmental and social areas and that financial success only results if it acts in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. In this context, we consider sustainable development to mean a long-term process designed to meet the needs of current and future generations. Safety and environmental protection are two important invariables amid changing values. Thus, the assurance of safety and environmental protection is not only required by law but constitutes an obligation and at the same time a key success factor in all our business dealings.

The founder of Taj Pharmaceuticals, Dr. R. K. Singh, is a pioneering entrepreneur who is convinced that the future belonged to branded pharmaceutical products. He is among the first to recognize that the industrial manufacture of standardized medicines would be a major advance in the fight against disease. This led him to found Taj Pharmaceuticals Ltd. in India & Abroad. From the very beginning, Dr. R. K. Singh attached great importance to product information as the link between the pharmaceutical manufacturer and doctors, pharmacists and patients. Shortly after the foundation of the company, affiliates were opened in Mauritius, Malaysia, Dubai, Moscow, England, France, the US, Great Britain and Russia. Since then, Taj Pharmaceuticals has grown into one of the world's leading healthcare companies and one of the most important India.

Taj Pharma As A Health Care Provider Pharma export to grow by 25% Depreciating rupee to help Indian drug industry to achieve exponential growth in overseas sales Indian pharma industry is set to defy recession by registering a 25% growth in exports during the current fiscal. As per projections made by Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) pharma exports from India is expected to touch the figure of Rs36,471 crore in 2008-09 against the exports of Rs29,140 crore in the previous year. Depreciation in Indian rupee and cost advantage will help the industry to post such an exponential growth in overseas sales. The forecast seems quite optimistic, as the industry posted just 8% growth in export in 2007-08 compared to Rs26,895 crore recorded in 2006-07. However, depreciation in Indian currency is going to help them in a big way to achieve the growth. In the first half of the current fiscal, rupee depreciated by whopping 6.6% against the dollar and the trend is likely to continue till the end of the fiscal. India's export of drugs and pharmaceuticals accounts for almost 40% of the sectors' aggregate sales. "Global recession is not expected to impact Indian pharma sector due to its low cost manufacturing advantage. Indian companies are mostly into the manufacturing of generic drugs and offers drugs at a price much lower than the patent holder company. In fact, slowdown will prove to be a boon forIndian pharma companies, as foreign customers will look for cheaper products. However, growth of exports may slowdown in last two quarters," says Sarabjeet Kaur, vice president, research-pharmaceuticals, Angel Broking. "The first two quarters have been good for pharma sector and no significant impact of slowdown was visible. However, last two quarters may not be same and the sector may see some slowdown in export," says Kamlesh Udani, executive director of JB Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals Ltd. The US is the largest market for Indian pharma companies and for China, India is the largest market for exports. India exported drugs and pharmaceuticals worth Rs1,872 crore to the US and Rs564 crore to Germany in 2007-08. Import from China and Switzerland in the same year was Rs1,320 crore and Rs288 crore respectively. Bucking the trend Pharma exports are expected to be around Rs36,471 crore this fiscal against Rs29,140 crore in the previous year Export accounts for almost 40% of the aggregate sales of the industry Global recession is a boon for the sector, as foreign customers are looking for cheaper drugs Sachin Kumar/ DNA-Daily News & Analysis Source: 3D Syndication

The eggs are then put through UV disinfection process to neutralize / minimize the growth of micro-organisms, consuming eggs that are untreated and contain high level of micro-organisms often leads to vomiting and diahorea. Finally, the UV disinfected eggs are placed in paper pulp egg holders in lots of 6s or 4s and shrink wrapped and labeled.
