Express Pharma Pulse Awards 2002
3 new recognitions this time, totalling 10
Honouring excellence has been our tradition. Or perhaps a habit. Indian pharmaceutical industry is the fourth largest in the world today. The highest of its growth rally was registered in the last one decade. As an industry-centric publication, we have been feeling the pangs of a growing industry. With our ears pressed to the ground, we have been harking to the thuds of growth as it took foliages for the last seven years. Today, if Express Pharma Pulse holds the most faithful mirror to the industry; if it has become the undisputable gradient to measure the pulse of the industry, we attribute everything to our care-givers. We honour them. We recognise the best of them. The best of the best.
Industry associations, have always recognised the meritorious performers. But this is the first national initiative, from outside the industry to recognise excellence.
Last year we had given 7 awards:
1.) Overall Performance Category – 4
2.) Special Category – 3
(Lifetime Achievement, Special Recognition & Best Exporter)
Cipla, Unichem, Biochem and Morepen won the best performers’ awards whereas best exporter’s and Special Recognition awards went to Ranbaxy Ltd and Shantha Biotech respectively. Late Ramanbhai Patel of Zydus Cadila received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Under the overall performance category, the top 150 companies as per IMS data were classified into four groups and evaluated on totally quantifiable parameters of market share, growth, new product introductions and sales with appropriate weightages assigned to each.
THIS YEAR, there are SIX awards in overall performance category and FOUR in the special category with an additional recognition for the best bulk drug company.
