Sabinsa founder Dr. Muhammed Majeed and Sabinsa’s parent company Sami Labs were honored recently with several awards by the Associated Chambers of Commerce & Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), an organization of over 300 Chambers of Commerce and trade associations with the mission to impact the policy and legislative environment to foster balanced economic, industrial and social development in India. The awards were presented at the ASSOCHAM National Symposium on Nutraceuticals, Functional Food and Dietary Supplements in New Delhi.

In recognition of his pioneering research and outstanding achievement in the nutraceutical industry, Dr. Majeed received a Shield of Honor from India’s Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey. This award not only recognizes Dr. Majeed’s outstanding contributions to nutraceuticals research but also his work to improve awareness and understanding of the health benefits of herbal products based upon Ayurvedic traditions and expanded through modern research and development techniques.

Sami Labs, which manufactures and markets phytonutrients and standardized herbal extracts, specialty fine chemicals, and organic intermediates for the nutritional, cosmeceutical and food industries, was honored with two Certificate of Excellence Awards: Best Nutraceutical Company and Best Herbal Research Company.

“I am truly honored to be recognized by the Associated Chambers of Commerce & Industry of India,” said Dr. Majeed. “Research into development of botanical products that will contribute to the health and well-being of mankind is the core mission of the Sami-Sabinsa Group. Such recognition of those efforts reaffirms that commitment.”
