DRDO-Ramdev to make, market herbal products

After lending its might to the International Yoga Day, the country's defence establishment has now tied up with Patanjali Yogpeeth of yoga guru Baba Ramdev for manufacturing and marketing some of the herbal supplements and food products developed by DRDO. 

An agreement of this effect was signed between DRDO's Defence Institute of High Altitude Research (DIHAR) and Patanjali Yogpeeth in the presence of defence minister Manohar Parrikar, Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag, DRDO chief S Christopher and Ramdev in Leh.

The move will enable herbal products developed by DRDO- which is into making everything from juices and mosquito repellents to strategic missiles and fighters despite criticism- to get more customers in the civilian market, said officials.

under transfer of technology, scientific know-how for manufacture of five products developed by the Leh-based DIHAR will now be given to Patanjali Yogpeeth, which too manufactures herbal products and food products with an annual turnover of Rs 2,000 crore. The DRDO products include herbal tea, seabuck-thron dietary supplements and juice.
