Today, Dabur operates in North America in key consumer products categories like Hair Care, Skin Care, Oral Care, Massage Oils, Foods & Supplements.
Almost half a decade after stepping into North America, in the year 2010, Dabur made its first overseas acquisition in the US with the purchase of Namasté Laboratories LLC, a leading ethnic hair care company based in Chicago with operations in US, Europe and Africa. Dabur bought 100% equity in Namasté Laboratories LLC and its three subsidiary companies -- Hair Rejuvenation & Revitalization Nigeria Limited, Healing Hair Laboratories International, LLC, and Urban Laboratories International, LLC along with its South African arm -- marking its entry into the fast-growing $1.5-billion ethnic hair care products market in U.S.
This acquisition is in line with our strategy to build a global presence in the international FMCG market. The Namasté Group has a complementary product mix that can be easily integrated with Dabur and will also serve as a gateway to the US market for our portfolio of consumer products.
The origins of Dabur, promoted by the Burman family, can be traced back to 1884. From its humble beginnings in the bylanes of Calcutta, Dabur has come a long way today to become one of the biggest Indian-owned consumer goods companies. Dabur has successfully transformed itself from being a family-run business to become a professionally managed transnational enterprise. What sets Dabur apart from the crowd is its ability to change ahead of others and to always set new standards in corporate governance & innovation.
