History[edit]

Established in 1910 by Pattani, Prime Minister of the erstwhile state of Bhavnagar, Zandu went public in 1919 with the issuance of stocks.[5]

The company derives its name from Vaidhya Zandu Bhattji, the original founder of the firm named Zandu Pharmaceuticals. He was a renowned Vaidhya not only of Gujarat but India in late 19th century and early 20th century. The Vaidhya family's stake has been sold to Emami recently [6]
