Famy Care

JP Taparia worked in his extended family’s hand tools and engineering business until 1990. On 28 September 1987, Jyotiprasad ventured into entrepreneurship by founding Famy Care Ltd., which established itself as a global leader in the production of female oral contraceptives. Famy Care formed a technological partnership with Finland’s LierasOyand in 1991 following which it achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first Indian pharmaceutical company to provide contraceptive devices to the Government of India. In 1996, Taparia’s sons, Sanjeev Taparia and Ashutosh Taparia, joined Famy Care and helped the company expand beyond Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) by identifying a need for oral contraceptive pills, which were also in high demand from the Indian government. The creation of Mala D, an oral contraceptive pill that is taken to delay the menstrual period or make the period occur less frequently, proved to be a successful move. Following the success of Mala D tablets, Famy Care began exporting its products to other Asian and African countries. The company’s operations quickly scaled up and in 2010, the private equity firm AIF Capital invested $40 million for a 17.5% stake in the business. Famy Care’s strategy was to provide a diverse range of contraceptive options, starting with injectables and progressing to oral pills and eventually condoms. This focus on diversification and expanding product offerings has been a key factor in the company’s success in the industry.
