Speaking on this occasion V.K Dhawan, CEO, PHL stated, “Residing in the beautiful state of Uttarakhand, The Dhawan’s as a family felt that organic wellness and holistic living, which were the way of life of our country, were getting extinct and becoming old fashioned. To reintroduce age old methods with modern technology was the idea with which Planet Herbs was born. They were keen on taking the best resources from there own state and developing it into medicines which would help relieve modern ailments through Natural Therapy & Products. PHL in fact feels that the “Planet Herbs Products were a gift from the land of Uttarakhand to India.”
He further added, “Many a times, I have been asked a question that how and why did we start PHL, whereas our core business has been Oil & Gas. As a founder chairman of CII, Uttarakhand, I was involved in development of some information on availability of herbs in Uttarakhand. Additionally , the key focus area of the government has been the herbs development and its related products. Inview of this, further study was done and a company established with full R&D and quality facilities, which are at par with any world class facility.”
Mandira Bedi shares, “I am a true believer of originality and purity. Our body loves an organic routine. It is stress free and uplifts not only our system, but also our spirit! It is a great path to wellness & a healthy lifestyle.”
