History[edit]

In the mid-1880s, Dr. S.K. Burman, an Ayurvedic practitioner in Kolkata, concocted medicines for diseases like cholera, constipation and malaria. He went on to set up Dabur India Ltd in 1884 to mass-produce his Ayurvedic formulations. His son, C.L. Burman, set up Dabur's first R&D unit. The current chairman, Dr. Anand Burman, and vice-chairman Amit Burman, are part of the fifth generation of the Burman family. The Burmans were among the first business families in India to separate ownership from management when they handed over the management of the company to professionals in 1998.[10]

Sustainable Development Society[edit]

The Sustainable Development Society (Sundesh), a non-profit organisation started by Burman, aims to carry out welfare activities in the spheres of health care, education and other socio-economic activities. Dabur drives its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives through Sundesh.[11][12][13]
In the Brand Trust Report 2012, Dabur was ranked 45th among India's most trusted brands and subsequently, according to the Brand Trust Report 2013, Dabur was ranked 65th among India's most trusted brands. In 2014 however, Dabur was ranked 109th among India's most trusted brands according to the Brand Trust Report 2014, a study conducted by Trust Research Advisory, a brand analytics company.[5] But the Brand Trust Report 2015 puts Dabur at 19th place, a notable gainers by 90 positions.[14]

Controversy[edit]

Former executive director Pradip Burman was on the list of black money account holders on 27 October 2014 when BJP government revealed the names. Dabur rejected the black money charge.[15] Inappropriate use of cultural symbols provocation in the advertisements by Dabur during worldcup made some Indian Bengalis angry and they asked to boycott Dabur in July 2019.[16]
