One of the salient features of Zydus is its rich history and lineage. The origin of the company dates all the way back to the 1950s. The company was founded in the year 1952 by Mr. Ramanbhai B. Patel (late), a first-generation entrepreneur and a doyen in the field of Indian Pharmaceuticals.

In 1995, the group was restructured and thus was formed Cadila Healthcare under the aegis of the Zydus group. From a humble turnover Rs. 250 crores in 1995 the group witnessed a significant financial growth and registered a turnover of over Rs. 19,500 crores in FY-24.
