DuPont Expanding Manufacturing In India

Aug. 9, 2007
Will produce biosecurity program to prevent livestock viruses

Going after India's fast-growing animal and human health solutions, DuPont announced on Aug. 8 it is expanding its manufacturing capabilities in India. It will establish a local contract manufacturing plant at Baddi in Himachal Pradesh to produce biosecurity program products and solutions to help prevent and control viruses in the livestock industry, as well as provide a healthy environment for animals.

"At DuPont, we believe biosecurity will be the cornerstone of the Indian livestock industry, enabling Indian farmers to compete successfully in both the domestic and the international markets with safe and healthy food products. A step-change in biosecurity approach and practices is a must to help prevent the spread of viruses within the animal population, as well as help prevent diseases from mutating from animals to humans," said Dipal Parikh, regional marketing manager, DuPont Animal Health Solutions, Asia Pacific.

At the Baddi facility, which will start operations later this month, DuPont will manufacture a broad range of sustainable chemistries that include disinfectants, cleaners and sanitizers for animal health that help prevent pathogens from establishing themselves and also help prevent the spread of infection on the farm.
