Overview ::

Torrent’s manufacturing facility at Indrad, Gujarat, was set up in 1989. Today, the Indrad facility is at par with international standards. It complies with WHO, cGMP, MHRA and TGA norms and has received ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) certifications; adequately reflecting Torrent’s commitment towards quality and safety. Attainment of such standards have also opened the key to gaining footholds in regulated, lucrative markets like the US and EU for Torrent Pharma.

Torrent firmly believes that quality can not be talked into a product, but has to exist inherently. Its efforts towards realizing world-class quality standards came into limelight with the “Quality Excellence Gold Award” received from the Indian Drug Manufacturers’ Association (IDMA) for four consecutive years viz. 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003.
