ZoPharm is the first, and currently the only firm in Mizoram to be granted a Manufacturing License to produce sanitizers and disinfectants under the Drug and Cosmetic Act, 1940 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Government of Mizoram. The firm currently produces WHO Formula-1 Hand Sanitizers and two types of disinfectants – Sodium Hypochlorite USP (5 % w/v) and Hydrogen Peroxide (5 % w/v).
