Emphasizing the importance of Research & Development (R&D), Rossari Biotech sees it as a key element in its growth and innovation strategy. The company’s R&D capabilities are instrumental in meeting market needs and positioning itself as a sought-after partner for bespoke solutions. With a strong R&D framework, financial foundation, expanding capacities and a diverse product portfolio, Rossari Biotech anticipates substantial growth in both domestic and international markets.

The company announced an expansion of its facility at Dahej to venture into products related to HPPC and produce ingredients for subsidiary companies.

The expansion of the ethoxylation capacity at the Dahej facility of Unitop Chemicals Pvt Ltd was also announced to cater to growing demands in agro chemicals, home and personal care, oil & gas and the pharma sector.

Both projects are progressing on schedule, with commissioning expected in a phased manner by Q3 FY25.
