Founder

Anand Chandavarkar

A young visionary & an enthusiastic personality, Mr. Anand Chandavarkar, in the backdrop of India's independence struggle, dreamed of building a world class pharmaceutical company with the focus of integrating technology with affordability for millions of people to gain access to basic treatment modalities. FDC limited a leading healthcare company came into existence in 1936, as a private limited company known as Fair Deal Corporation (Private) Limited and in 1986 its name was changed to FDC Limited as known today.

History of ORS & Birth of Enerzal

In 1964 scientists working at the Cholera Research Laboratory, Dhaka, and the Infectious Diseases Hospital, Calcutta, contributed to the development of modern oral rehydration salt (ORS) solution. It was observed that glucose enhances the absorption of sodium and water across the intestinal brush-border membrane. The World Health Organization in 1978 launched the global diarrheal diseases control program with ORS at its heart and the short-term objective of reducing mortality due to diarrhoea. Thereafter scientist started their work on enhancing the safety, efficacy & simplicity of ORS.

However this knowledge of electrolyte based Oral rehydration drink today has many different variants to address the fluid/electrolyte loss occurring in other than diarrhoeal condition during fever, exercise, travelling & staying in humid weather, sweat loss during play and at work etc. It was also observed that there are 2 major reasons incentivizing the individual to increase the intake for more Oral Rehydration Salts. 1. Taste & 2. Osmosis is a process by which water will flow from source to the dehydrated cell. Based on this study FDC limited developed a balanced Energy & Electrolyte drink “Enerzal” which you have it today!
