Cadila Healthcare Rebranded as ‘Zydus Lifesciences’

India: Cadila Healthcare, a leading pharmaceutical company in India, has rebranded itself as Zydus Lifesciences Ltd. with an aim to create a new brand identity. Zydus also launched a new brand logo that brings together two hearts, one in purple symbolizing dedication to care and nurturance while the other heart in teal color represents dynamism. The ‘us’ in the Zydus logo signifies the stakeholders, including employees, health care providers, associates, business partners, banks, investors, and all those involved in the company. Building on a rich legacy of over 70 years, the rebranding of Cadila Healthcare is a part of the company’s commitment to constantly evolve and unlock the possibilities with life-changing discoveries to impact lives and empower people.

Zydus has made many first-in-India and first-in-world discoveries in the last seven decades. It was the first Indian pharmaceutical company to make a breakthrough in its research efforts with Lipaglyn, a novel drug for type-2 diabetes treatment. Zydus has collaborated with Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV) to develop ZY19489, a potential fast-acting, single dose cure for the treatment of malaria. Apart from being the first company to bring NCE from lab to market, Zydus also has a robust pipeline for Biologics and Vaccines. The company has recently started supplying the world’s first Plasmid DNA vaccine, ZyCoV-D, for human use to the government.

In March 2022, Zydus Lifesciences received approval for Oxemia, the first-of-its-kind oral treatment in India for anemia associated with chronic kidney disease, from the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI). Chronic kidney disorders are likely to become one of the most common causes of premature deaths in India by 2040.

Bringing forth a new vision for the company, Zydus Lifesciences' Managing Director commented, “Our new brand identity is a confluence of what we truly are. A global lifesciences company driven by the purpose of delivering care and nurturance for the patients, backed by the power of innovation, science, and cutting-edge technology. With these attributes close to our heart, we wish to make a meaningful difference in serving patients and communities. These pillars of care, compassion and commitment to innovation will remain at the heart of all that Zydus stands for.”

Commenting on the rebranding of Cadila Healthcare, Director at TechSci Research Pvt. Ltd. said, “Cadila Healthcare has remained among the leading players in India and has played a crucial role in taking Indian pharma space to new global heights. The company has constantly been improving its in-house new drug development with an objective to launch new blockbusters. Many breakthrough developments by Zydus have put Indian companies in direct competition with global innovators, and the company will continue to excel in strengthening the Indian pharma industry.”
