It has two World Health Organization Good Manufacturing Practices certified manufacturing facilities in Baddi and also has a Council of Scientific and Industrial Research approved research and development facility. It customizes multiple dosages including those of tablets, capsules, dry syrups, ointments, liquid orals, and sachets.

On the generics side it has a portfolio of more than 400 products sold through more than 3,400 stockists and distributors covering almost 96,000 retail touchpoints.

Innova’s total income grew 9.82% from 374.6 crore to 412 crore between FY20 and FY21, while profit grew from 27.8 crore to 34.5 crore because of higher export sales and higher sales under various brand names by wholly-owned subsidiaries, according to the filing with the ROC.
