The formal announcement of this cooperation was made at a press conference organized in Kolkata. Mathias Hevert, managing director of Hevert-Arzneimittel, is looking forward to the start of the collaboration: “We are really happy and proud to offer our proven homeopathic products now to millions of people in India, too. Here, we rely on quality 'Made in Germany' and the promise of offering homeopathic products from the homeland of Samuel Hahnemann, a German doctor and the founder of homeopathy.”

The partner companies M Bhattacharyya and King & Co. are based in Kolkata and belong to the well-diversified Emami Group which is engaged in different sectors worldwide. After the announcement of the cooperation with Hevert-Arzneimittel, shares of the group gained as much as 3.3 percent. In the future, Hevert will also advice the Emami subsidiaries in taking their production to European GMP-level in order to manufacture new homeopathic products on the basis of German formulations. The aim of the cooperation is to establish first-class German homeopathic remedies on the Indian market and to make them available to local people.

Around 1830, homeopathy was introduced in India among others by Johann Martin Honigberger, a doctor from Transylvania. Until today, homeopathy is firmly anchored in the Indian public healthcare system and widely accepted.

"As well-established homeopathic brands in India, M Bhattacharyya and King & Co. have been enjoying Indian people’s trust for more than a century. Nevertheless, homeopathy is a vast and ever changing area of knowledge. It is necessary to keep ourselves updated with significant international developments in this area of treatment. We were always open for a strategic, technical collaboration with international homeopathic specialists and I am confident that our partnership with Hevert is going to benefit the consumers in India immensely," RS Agarwal, founder and joint chairman of Emami Group, stated.
