From its infancy in 1973, when the company was formed, until date, India Gelatine & Chemicals Ltd. (IGCL) strives to produce world-class gelatine in its state-of-the-art factory in Vapi, Gujarat. The journey began more than four decades ago in 1975, when the promoters primarily produced ossein (the raw material for gelatine) from crushed bones and exported it to Japan with technical collaboration from M/S Konica Gelatin Corporation of Japan.
Success of this venture, spurred the company to expand its product line and in 1997 it began producing gelatine from ossein, which was compliant to the highest international standards.
IGCL’s superior product line is fit for consumption in halal and international markets, which has paved a way for export to USA, the EU, Japan, Korea, Middle eastern countries and Indonesia, amongst others. The company has been publicly recognized with numerous awards and is poised to grow and meet the market demand with consummate ease. Its mantra for success is innovation and involvement of all major stakeholders in the company for an integrated system with refined controls.
As the industry leader, IGCL continues to receive awards annually as a leading exporter from CAPEXIL- Ministry of Commerce, Govt. of India, as well as cognizance from the Gujarat government for adhering to pollution control norms and best practices in business.
