  • Annual Report 2008 - 2009 Taj Agro International (Taj agro products) Mumbai., IndiaLarge amounts of energy are expended in the process of removing water and so plants developed over the years havebecome increasingly more energy efficient. Evaporators are much more energy efficient than driers, using only a fraction of akilogram of steam (or the energy equivalent) per kilogram of water removed. Driers on the other hand use severalkilograms of steam (or steam equivalent) per kilogram of water evaporated. Spray drying provides a means of rapidly andgently 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 inorder to maintain their quality and shelf life. Milk Powders readily take up moisture from the air, leading to a rapid loss ofquality and caking or lumping. The fat in WMPs can react with oxygen in the air to give off-flavors, especially athigher storage temperatures (> 30 C) typical of the tropics.© 2008 All Rights reserved with Taj Agro (Taj agro products Mumbai)Taj Agro International, A Division of Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited – Taj Grouo of Companies

As cheeses age, they become morepungent, hard, and crumbly.3 many cheeses become rubbery when cooked too long or at too high a temperature. If you4lan to cook with a cheese, select a heat-tolerant one like mozzarella or emmental.5 its usually best to keep cheese in its original packaging. If the cheese has been cut, wrap it6tightly in plastic wrap to hold in the moisture.

  • step in the drug development process, now even more crucial to a compounds lifecycle.As pharmaceutical companies continue to focus on R&D and commercialization, drugdevelopment is being farmed out to contract providers. This is nothing new; its beenhappening for years, but contract providers arent just dealing with Big Pharmaanymore. Emerging biotech companies lack drug development capabilities, giving morebusiness to a burgeoning pharma and biopharma outsourcing industry.Having worked with pharma companies for years, the drug development contract serviceproviders were more than ready to take on new business.By the late 1990s, these companies had become experts atsmall molecule formulation development. Companies thatperformed preformulation and regular formulationdevelopment services could tell their clients when to "kill"a compound and when to let it survive, offering keymoney- and time-saving decisions.New automated technologies, as well as the biotechnologyindustry, have created a mountain of new drug targetswaiting to be sifted through. Now, however, in addition tosmall molecule drug targets, formulation development is apuzzle that applies to large molecule protein and peptidedrug targets. This presents a whole new set of complications never seen before.The biggest problem facing formulation development providers is solubility. Ask anyonein the industry, and this is the first response. Each person contacted for this articlementioned it, cutting me off before I could finish my question about hot topics informulation development. Large molecule targets are water insoluble and formulatorsare working hard to tackle that problem.Ian Smart, director of operations at Taj Pharma, commented, "Solubility is obviously thehottest, the biggest trend." He added, "Biotechnology companies are usually verydifficult because they tend to look at different types of molecules. They are looking atlarge molecules that tend to have solubility problems. If youve got solubility problemsthen its difficult to get that product released. Thats an area were trying to specialize inbecause weve 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 achallenge. It is difficult to do conventional preformulation studies on these molecules anddevelop the right formulation for the clinic. A lot of our clients come to us with thesetypes of molecules."Not only are companies trying to piece together ways offormulating these new drug targets, but they, as always,have to keep the regulatory issues in mind as well. Theregulations for large molecules have not been able to keepup with the speed of discovery. "Many regulations werewritten with the small molecules in mind. Some of thethings you need to do with a small molecule become muchmore difficult with these larger molecules that, rather thanbeing synthesized, are biological products. They arepurified from some fermentation source or other biologicsource. The levels and types of impurities are different, thetypes of characterizations are different, the analytical Copyright © 2004-2009 Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited. All rights reserved.

  • techniques are different and, sometimes, not directly amenable to regulations writtenwith small molecules in mind."Recently, the FDA placed the review of drugs that come from living organisms into thesame unit that handles chemical-derived therapies. The biologics unit has lagged behindthe agencys drug unit over the years. While the agencys drug unit has halved itsapproval time over the last couple decades, the biologics segment languished. Industryinsiders are hoping this move will speed up the approval process while making the twotypes of review processes more consistent. Not an easy task. Making sure batches areconsistent is a lot easier for small molecule drugs than it is for biologics. The biologicsunit 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 tocontract service providers. In addition, however, a company such as AAI not only has tofollow FDA requirements, but those of its clients as well. Service providers have to stayon top of regulatory changes, sometimes informing their clients that what may havepassed as compliance a few years ago, may not work today. Regulations will eventuallycatch up to new technology and new molecules.The FDA is constantly trying to keep up with innovation. New process analyticaltechniques are coming from the agency to establish online process analytical testing. Dr.Melsopp commented, "Some companies are doing typical in-process blend and bulkproduct testing, as well as on-line. In order to stay competitive, contractors andcompanies have to start thinking about process analytical technologies and to put themin place during manufacturing."Another hot area of formulation development is early stage preformulation and thebenefits of it. This goes back to the idea of trying to kill compounds early. Although itmay take more time in the long run, doing some initialwork can help the critical decision as to whether acompound goes on to the next step or not. Dr. Aggarwalsaid, "Weve seen examples where companies haventdone enough exploration at the initial stages of differentformulation options and therefore end up with somethingthat dies later in the process."Although the amount of preformulation done forcompounds varies from project to project, factors such astime (the most valuable thing to drug companies) andmoney (the second most valuable thing) dictate how muchinitial work is done. In the best of all possible worlds, acompany with ample time and money should spend bothon preformulation, according to Dr. Ingallinera.He said, "Preformulation is where you evaluate thephysical chemical attributes of the compound before youdecide what the formulation should be. You look at itsoxygen sensitivity, where its pH is the most stable, solvents and co-solvent systems orsurfactants, and ways to enhance the compounds solubility or stability. You look atwhether or not the compound is extremely water unstable and if you have to go to a dryprocess such as lyophilization or powder filling in order to make the product. You look atvarious methods of sterilization, and evaluate whether or not the product can withstandthe heat or the radiation or other attributes of sterilization during preformulation.Considering these variables at a very early stage allows you to develop a betterformulation."

  • Preformulation services are not the only things sponsors are looking for from contractproviders. Offering a range of services, from preformulation to end product, cuts downon the number of organizations that have access to a clients 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 developmentare 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 withoutside scientists.

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 ourfield of activity. And we can say that our position on this market is very strong and cooperating with us you willachieve 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, medicaland prophylactic establishments and drugstores. Cooperate with us and we shall together develop thepharmaceutical 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 foundedthe company in Mumbai, India, in 2004, his ambitious goal was to combat disease more effectively than hadpreviously been possible by using innovative, standardised and thus safe medicines. Ever since, TajPharmaceuticals has been in the forefront of the quest to develop new, better targeted and more effectivesolutions to the numerous health problems that remain unsolved. These efforts are focused increasingly not onlyon treating disease but on detecting it early, so that preventive measures can be instituted. Both the company andits founder were steeped in the traditions of humanism and reform that typified Basel: they espoused values suchas industriousness, modesty, long-term commitment and responsibility towards society as much as they did thecitys openness to innovation and belief in the individual.Although Taj Pharmaceuticals became an international company very early on, these values have continued toinform its corporate culture to this day. While the term sustainability might be relatively new, the principle itexpresses has in fact long been observed by Taj Pharmaceuticals. The aim must therefore be to translate these Copyright © 2004-2009 Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited. All rights reserved.

  • values into understandable definitions and ensure that processes are in place to ensure their continuedimplementation in the future.Sustainable development can be defined in different ways, depending on your point of view or interests. At TajPharmaceuticals, we keep to the definition spelt out in the 2004 Brundtland Report - namely, that developmentis sustainable if it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meettheir own needs.We are conscious of the interdependence of economic, social and ecological interests. Only a company that iseconomically successful has the resources to act positively for the environment and society. Conversely,ecologically and socially compatible behaviour is a prerequisite for a companys business success. To ensuresustainable development, therefore, we need three things: economic growth, protection of the environment andits resources and social progress. Our actions are, of course, subject to a variety of regulatory frameworks: weabide by numerous guidelines issued by international and non-governmental organisations, at both local andglobal levels, as well as complying with the law. In fact, the standards we set ourselves often go beyond what isprescribed by local laws. Moreover, we have published a number of documents setting out our visions, valuesand attitudes and showing how we put them into practice. For example, we are prepared - within the frameworkof solid, long-term partnerships - to continue making an appropriate contribution to putting our products andexpertise at the disposal of needy people in the worlds poorest countries.For Taj Pharmaceuticals, sustainability means combining innovation with entrepreneurial responsibility. Ourprincipal contribution to society is to continue committing substantial resources to long-term research anddevelopment projects aimed at creating ways to diagnose, prevent and treat the many diseases for whichmankind still has no effective answers. At the same time we strive to minimise the associated risks and adverseeffects, 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 letothers assess our performance. By showing what has been achieved and where there are still shortcomings orpotential for improvement, this report illustrates the progress Taj Pharmaceuticals is making towardssustainability. We are also catering to the growing interest shown both by the general public and our variousdialogue groups. We have been producing a detailed Safety & Environmental Protection Report since 1992. Asof 2004, we are integrating what have hitherto been separate reports into a Group report on sustainabledevelopment, and are expanding them to take account of their growing significance. In doing so, we areobserving the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative - a body that unites the interests of various dialoguegroups and works closely with agencies of the United Nations. This report is published together with theGroups Annual Report. Additional information on sustainable development, which is continually updated, isavailable 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 theseefforts. 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. Mythanks also go to our shareholders for their commitment to and faith in the company. Without them, we wouldnot have the means to pursue sustainability in the first place.Dr.R.K.SinghCMD Taj Group Copyright © 2004-2009 Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited. All rights reserved.

  • Corporate Governance Taj Pharmaceuticals is committed to all its shareholders and strives to serve thediverse interests of customers, employees, shareholders and holders of TajPharmaceuticals nonvoting equity securities in a balanced fashion.This commitment is reflected in our operating businesses’ focus onvalue creation, in a management culture that conforms to modernstandards of corporate governance and in our Group’s policy ofcommunicating transparently. A series of documents and corresponding details are made available to all keystakeholder groups: shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers and the generalpublic.Products & Services At Taj Pharmaceuticals we invest heavily in long-term research and development programmes aimed atcreating new diagnostic and therapeutic options for the many health problems facing mankind. This is the mostimportant way in which we make a difference. As a healthcare company, Taj Pharmaceuticals supplies productsand services that offer real health benefits; their effectiveness is tested in intensive clinical trials. Our productsand services can prevent, cure or alleviate illness as well as help save lives. We care about the health of everyindividual. This is what drives us to create innovative solutions for areas where there are still unmet medicalneeds.This is our contribution to sustainable healthcare. Our products and services make it possible for patients toreceive prompt and effective treatment tailored to their individual requirements. And, by helping patients toavoid 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 earlyidentification of disease predispositions, prevention, accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment. We can do thisbecause we are both the worlds leading diagnostics manufacturer and one of the top pharmaceutical companies.Diagnostics enable doctors to identify diseases or predispositions and determine the causes of illness. Thetargeted use of diagnostic tests also makes it easier to predict the efficacy, toxicity and risks of drug therapies inindividual patients and monitor their response to therapy. Drugs can prevent, cure or alleviate illness. Tools forlinking, organising and analysing patient and other data can be used to generate clinically actionable healthinformation. 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, allowingtreatments to be tailored to the needs of the individual patient and administered at the optimal time. Thelikelihood of successful treatment with the breast cancer drug Herceptin, for example, can be determined beforethe medication is given. The surface of cancer cells is studded with a receptor protein called HER2, whichstimulates 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 consideredespecially hard to treat. By targeting and blocking HER2 receptors, the drug inhibits tumour growth, resulting in Copyright © 2004-2009 Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited. All rights reserved.

  • a significantly improved prognosis. Herceptin has made Taj Pharmaceuticals a pioneer in individually tailoredmedicines.Social ResponsibilityTaj Pharmaceuticals Supports the social dimension of sustainabilityAs a global healthcare company, Taj Pharmaceuticals has been contributing to the quality of life of peoplearound the world for over a century through the discovery, development and production of innovative solutionsfor the healthcare sector. We are constantly looking for innovative ways of improving healthcare delivery andmaking our solutions more readily accessible, in particular for needy people in the poorest countries of theworld. Because of the alignment between our diagnostics and therapeutics businesses, we are able to contributeto the effective use of these countries very limited resources. When assessing projects, we focus on the potentialhealth impact rather than on the cost. By developing and implementing innovative solutions together withcompetent local partners, the simplest measures can often result in more lasting improvements than many high-profile 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 alsoencourages 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 thetypical 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 itsupports. Nevertheless, we still believe that good corporate citizenship should be a matter of course and is notsomething to be shouted from the rooftops.Environmental Stewardship A matter of course for Taj PharmaceuticalsTaj Pharmaceuticals has long been aware that only a financially successful company can be active inenvironmental and social areas and that financial success only results if it acts in an environmentally andsocially responsible manner. In this context, we consider sustainable development to mean a long-term processdesigned to meet the needs of current and future generations.Safety and environmental protection are two important invariables amid changing values. Thus, the assurance ofsafety and environmental protection is not only required by law but constitutes an obligation and at the sametime 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 thefuture belonged to branded pharmaceutical products. He is among the first to recognize that the industrialmanufacture 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 pharmaceuticalmanufacturer and doctors, pharmacists and patients. Shortly after the foundation of the company, affiliates wereopened in Mauritius, Malaysia, Dubai, Moscow, England, France, the US, Great Britain and Russia.Since then, Taj Pharmaceuticals has grown into one of the worlds leading healthcare companies and one of themost important India.

  • Taj Pharma As A Health Care ProviderPharma export to grow by 25%Depreciating rupee to help Indian drug industry to achieve exponential growth inoverseas salesIndian pharma industry is set to defy recession by registering a 25% growth in exportsduring the current fiscal. As per projections made by Centre for Monitoring IndianEconomy (CMIE) pharma exports from India is expected to touch the figure ofRs36,471 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 anexponential growth in overseas sales. The forecast seems quite optimistic, as theindustry posted just 8% growth in export in 2007-08 compared to Rs26,895 crorerecorded in 2006-07. However, depreciation in Indian currency is going to help them in abig way to achieve the growth. In the first half of the current fiscal, rupee depreciated bywhopping 6.6% against the dollar and the trend is likely to continue till the end of the fiscal.Indias export of drugs and pharmaceuticals accounts for almost 40% of the sectors aggregatesales."Global recession is not expected to impact Indian pharma sector due to its low costmanufacturing advantage. Indian companies are mostly into the manufacturing ofgeneric 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 foreigncustomers will look for cheaper products. However, growth of exports may slowdown inlast two quarters," says Sarabjeet Kaur, vice president, research-pharmaceuticals, AngelBroking. "The first two quarters have been good for pharma sector and no significantimpact of slowdown was visible.However, last two quarters may not be same and the sector may see some slowdown inexport," 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 thelargest market for exports. India exported drugs and pharmaceuticals worth Rs1,872crore to the US and Rs564 crore to Germany in 2007-08. Import from China andSwitzerland in the same year was Rs1,320 crore and Rs288 crore respectively.Bucking the trendPharma exports are expected to be around Rs36,471 crore this fiscal against Rs29,140crore in the previous yearExport accounts for almost 40% of the aggregate sales of the industryGlobal recession is a boon for the sector, as foreign customers are looking for cheaper drugsSachin Kumar/ DNA-Daily News & Analysis Source: 3D Syndication Copyright © 2004-2009 Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited.
