History snapshot

  • Founded in 1985, Taj Pharmaceuticals was initially a marketer and distributor of ethical and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines in Mumbai, India. In the 2000s the company began manufacturing generic pharmaceuticals for the local market.
  • In the 2005s, as a consequence of Indian health sector reforms, Taj Pharma increased its focus on export activities. This move resulted in the restructuring of core operations into two distinct business activities: domestic in-licensing and agency operations, to supply the Indian retail pharmacy sector own and in-licensed generics, OTC’s and nutraceutical/dietary supplements; and export out-licensing operations, to supply generic medicines and dietary supplements to global markets.
  • Taj Pharmaceuticals’ domestic operation has grown to more than $57 million annually and today employs one of the largest field sales teams in India. The sales team services retail pharmacy, health stores, hospitals, doctors and specialists.
  • Currently we are supplying close to 450 unique generic products to more than 60 customers in 35 countries around the world.

Quality & Compliance

Taj Pharmaceuticals is committed to 100% compliance with internationally recognised quality systems and good manufacturing practices. Our customers have the highest degree of assurance that our products are manufactured and controlled to the levels required by the world’s most demanding health authorities.

Quality and compliance proof points:

  • Our manufacturing operations are conducted in accordance with the current requirements of the internationally recognised ‘PIC/S (Pharmaceutical Inspection Cooperation Scheme) Guide to Good Manufacturing Practice for Medicinal Products’.
  • All facilities, systems and procedures are regularly inspected by the Indian Ministry of Health and Local State FDA’s Compliance. Consequently, we have a manufacturing licence and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certificate issued by Indian Food and Drug Departments in compliance with WHO | GMP guidelines.
  • We are also licensed by Indian Central Drug Authority to manufacture veterinary medicines.
  • We are a registered pharmaceutical manufacturer with the Russian and Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

Our quality control and quality assurance systems have been successfully inspected by the USA FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration).

Research & Development

Research and development at Taj Pharmaceuticals is driven by the specific needs of our domestic and international customers. Our discovery programme is focused primarily on preparing brand-name equivalent drugs and the development of ANDA and NCEs (New Chemical Entities).

Taj Pharmaceuticals New Drug Development and F&D Department occupies a state-of-the-art laboratory complex at Taj Pharma Sanand. This facility includes three pilot scale manufacturing plants (two fully dedicated to the manufacture of high potency products); two instrument rooms (one with controlled lighting for the analysis of light-sensitive compounds); and an office suite for Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls documentation writing and data validation.

Programme capabilities:

  • We have expertise in the development and manufacture of specialised high potency tablets, hard-gelatin capsules and pre-filled syringe products.
  • We have developed and produced alternative-branded generics for global markets, fully supported by patient programmes and promotional material.
  • Our team provides CMC services to both generic and NCE clients in compliance with EMA (European Medicines Agency), US FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) and ICH (International Committee on Harmonisation) guidelines.
  • Many of the generic products we develop are poorly soluble and can present considerable challenges to the achievement of BE (Bioequivalence). Overcoming solubility challenges is a strength of ours.
  • We can assist with formulation and CMC needs for IND-ANDA (Abbreviated New Drug Application) filings.
