History :

In 1945, a Goan entrepreneur Mr. Govind Ramnath Kare, who was in the business of wholesale and retail trade of pharmaceuticals, started a firm which he named Indo Continental Trading Company.

The principal business of this firm was to import pharmaceutical formulations from Europe and distribute them in Western India.

However in 1947, after India became independent, the new Government in its bid to encourage indigenous manufacturing of medicines banned import of several formulations. Mr. G.R. Kare instead of being discouraged, decided to venture into manufacturing of pharmaceuticals.

Accordingly, on 23rd August 1947, a week after India's independence, a new Company was founded with the intent to manufacture and sell pharmaceutical formulations.

Thus, Indo Continental Trading Company became Indoco Remedies Limited.
