The man behind the brand
Managing Director & CEO
Gaurav Kaushik is a young and dynamic 1st generation entrepreneur who at the age of 36 has mastered the Bio-Pharma business in India. He is the Managing Director & CEO of Meteoric, one of the fastest growing Bio-Pharma company’s in India. Hailing from a middle-class family in Punjab, he always wanted to be a doctor but family conditions did not help him fulfil his dreams, he therefore thought of pursuing Bachelors in Agriculture and headed to Dapoli, Maharashtra. After completing his Bachelors with scholarships, he went to Indian Institute of Plantation Management, Bangalore with Majors in Biotechnology & was a Gold Medallist. He wanted to pursue career with top agro companies in India & was offered job by Agri Corporates, but instead he ventured into business with his friend & now his wife in the year 2006. They both floated Meteoric LifeSciences, now METEORIC BIOPHARMACEUTICALS PVT. LTD., together & Gaurav took the charge & gave a biotech vision to the company. Meteoric invested its entire resources & energy in the highly lucrative field of Bio-Pharmaceuticals, after 2 years of vigorous market study & research in the year 2008 & since then it was no looking back. Gaurav Kaushik incorporated 2 specific rules for his products: 1) No compromise on quality and 2) Best in class technical support to the industry. This philosophy was well received by the industries not only across India but in over 70 countries across the world. In the leadership of Gaurav, today Meteoric is a leading supplier of Enzymes, Probiotics, Nutraceuticals & Animal Healthcare products, to name a few Bromelain, Serritiopeptidase, Trypsin, Chymo Trypsin, Pancreation, Pepsin & the list goes on.
