A Growing Appetite

Banking on acquisitions, Torrent Pharma is focused on strengthening its presence in the domestic market

In the pharmaceutical industry circle, turant was the name used when one spoke of the Ahmedabad-based Torrent Pharmaceuticals. Turant is ‘immediate’ in Hindi and the word was really to drive home the point on the company’s ability to move quickly, be it launching new products or the pace of decision-making. It was a title, which was used in a big way in the late 1980s and early ’90s.
