Tata Chemicals has formed research alliances with academia and research institutions in order to build on their shared strengths in research and innovation. We are actively working with various universities and research bodies to further develop the understanding of the microbiome and its effect. Tata Chemicals has also advanced in the mapping of the Indian microbiome and the effect of prebiotics on the human microbiome through independent large scale studies.
NQ's foray into the dairy segment is good news for the India Dairy as news as this will boost the segment with the extension of new research and product utilisation areas for the sector that is struggling with milk glut.
