Global pharma major Lupin Limited has announced today the completion of the acquisition of a portfolio of brands from Anglo-French Drugs & Industries Limited (AFDIL) and its Associates.

The acquisition will strengthen Lupin’s India Formulation business by adding a fast-growing portfolio of vitamins, minerals, supplements and neurological products.

We are confident in Lupin's ability to enhance the value of our portfolio of brands,” said Abhay Kanoria, Chairman & MD, AFDIL.
