Managing Director’s Message

We have the team, the strength and the will to do it

Our history, 50 Years of Excellence
Mansoor Daya Chemicals Ltd. was founded in 1962 by Mr. Mansoor Daya. On foundation of the company, the factory was officially opened by the late Hon. Kasambala on behalf of the Father of the Nation, the late Mwalimu Julius Nyerere. With beginnings in Pharmaceuticals, initially only four items were manufactured aspirin tablets; chloroquine tablets; aspirin phenacetin caffeine compound and Vitamin B complex tablets. By 1970, production has reached 500,000 tablets per day. Now more than 55 years later, we can manufacture over 3-million tablets per shift using new machinery - but only utilising 50% of our capacity. We are supplying medicines to MSD, hospitals and clinics. With encouragement from the government directive to buy local medicines, we will be able to utilise 90% of present capacity.
At present
Today, the company manufactures over 50 of our own brands of high-quality Health care products such as Medioral Toothpaste and Medi-Oral Mouthwash, cough syrups, vitamins, etc.
