The GMP approval from the EU will help the company get access to markets in the entire European Union as well as many other markets like  South Africa, Canada, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia/New Zealand and most middle-eastern countries.

“While we have been endorsed for this quality by our partners who are also leading Indian and multinational pharmaceutical companies, the latest nod from the EU GMP is a widely recognised and accepted one,” Sandeep Jain, Founder, Akums Drugs said.
