The company that now owns Biochem Pharmaceuticals and decides on the research focus and production of the drug maker, Cadila Healthcare Limited, was established in 1952 by a former professor of the L.M.

Nowadays, the shares of the company are listed in the Bombay Stock Exchange.
Product lines, research and development
Although the company mostly focuses on the production of generics to make the most innovative medicines developed by other companies affordable to wider populations and especially people from the developing world, it also continues to engage in research and development of new drugs.
The company offers not only drugs but also diagnostic devices, natural remedies, i.e. plan products, skin care products including creams, ointments, shampoos, and so on, and other prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
The pharmaceutical company produces active pharmaceutical ingredients at multiple factories complexes all around India (the total number is around twenty complexes with some of them having 12 plants at one site) to ensure fast and equal distribution of medications to all country population as well as provide their country citizens with fair employment possibilities and conditions. In 2015, it employed around fifty thousand people.
In 2010, the company that owns Biochem Pharmaceuticals received a Welcome Trust Award under the "R&D for Affordable Healthcare in India" initiative.
Indeed, it strives to cut the prices of the essential and important medications and quite effectively. For instance, in 2014, it became the first drug-making company to make the world's first adalimumab biosimilar generic pricing it at one-fifth the originator's price.
It also launched its first drug molecule Saroglitazar for the treatment of Diabetic Dyslipidemia under brand name "Lipaglyn".
In 2015, the company got the license from the developer Sofosbuvir, the innovative drug for the treatment of hepatitis C, and became the first company to make the generics of this medication and market it at a much lower price that the branded medication is sold at.
