Clients Customers
At Elfin,we believe that contributing back to the society is not only a RESPONSIBILITY but a COMMITMENT. Our little value addition to the betterment of society is a part of our mission, in line with our commitment to human health. Through the years, Elfin has strived to make the world around it a better place. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not just an integral part of our business but devotion; the promise of a brighter future for every life we touch.

We consider it our duty to contribute a share of our earnings towards health benefits to the less privileged, rural welfare to make life easier for rural poor and several charitable activities to do our part towards the welfare of society as a whole. Blood Donation With second highest population in the world, there is tremendous requirement of blood for patient care. Unfortunately, there is an endemic shortfall of this precious item. Every year we organize a blood donation drive at all our locations for our team members, to contribute to this noble cause.
Rural Welfare Apart from regular medical initiatives, we have also been working in the domain of rural upliftment having built several Community halls in vicinity of several hospitals. These community halls are used by relatives of patients admitted in the hospitals especially government run hospitals. The patients'' relatives are provided with free accommodation and subsidized meals while they are busy taking care of the patient. We have also developed waiting areas in government hospitals to provide seating areas to patients and their families. Eye Camps Our CSR efforts are focused on ''how to not turn a blind eye'' to a common yet growing medical concern in India. India is home to a quarter of world''s blind with cataract being the leading cause of this problem. Our free eye camps have helped make a very simple yet vital procedure accessible to needy patients, averting the need for them to face a bleak yet highly preventable long-term reality – a life without sight. We continue to conduct large eye care camps in various villages where we provide underprivileged people with free cataract operations and eye checkups through the services of eye specialists and surgeons. All patients undergoing eye operations are also provided with adequate post-operative care. In 2012, our dedicated team was instrumental in achieving over 11,000 cataract surgeries successfully.

Our Business Philosophy
Over the years, Elfin has established a wide marketing network that is operative in domestic and international markets. The set-up is supplemented by a wide distribution network in all activities, which are centered on establishing the company''s brands in respective markets for sustained sales. Our focused approach on Key Markets and towards ''Brand Building'' in those markets over the past few years have resulted in consistent above average growth rates. A well-knit marketing and distribution network synergy has been instrumental in this achievement.
Domestic Marketing
For Elfin, sale of branded formulations in India is an integral part of business operations, which contributed little over 35% to the company's sales income for FY 2013. India being one of the fastest growing pharmaceutical markets in the world, it is a major growth driver for the company. Company's clear focus on specialty segments of Ophthalmology, Dermatology and Cardiovascular has enabled it to continue to grow at much higher rates over industry average growth rate of the Indian Pharmaceutical Market (IPM) for last 5 years. Our competency in identifying unmet medical needs and then being first-to-market many products, has been our foundation for success throughout these years and will continue to be so in the coming years.
Global Market
Elfin having gained a foothold in the domestic market since its inception took steps towards a very natural progression into ventures in the overseas market in October, 2012.In addition to consolidating its business in developing countries, Elfin is working towards creating a global footprint by entering mature markets like North America and Europe.The endeavour was to tap on the ever increasing demand for the products on a global platform even as this sector kept growing exponentially.

By leveraging its competencies in R&D, manufacturing and business development, Elfin seeks to take advantage of attractive opportunities in the generic segment in developed markets.

Thus began Elfin's journey into the geographical sphere. Initially it entered itself in Phillipines, Myanmar,Georgia and looked to grow from thereon. We have our eyes firmly set on tapping the highly dynamic Asian and Latin America markets.

We are ready to surge ahead in the ever growing and ever challenging global market.

The company systems act as a guiding tool for the product development, manufacturing, distribution and these functions are carried out in accordance with the regulatory requirements of the specific country. The regulatory department at Elfin acts as an interface with the R&D, Manufacturing & Marketing and keeps itself abreast of the latest regulatory guidelines of the health authorities such as US-FDA, EDQM, TGA etc.

  • Submission of product registration applications in the form of CTD-Dossiers, marketing applications, ANDA, NDA etc.
  • Response to queries or deficiencies from regulatory bodies / customers.
  • Inspections and inspection reports.
  • Post approval / marketing surveillance by regulatory bodies.
