Roche Takes a Leap in Indian Diabetes Care with Locally Manufactured Accu-Chek Active Meters
Roche Diabetes Care India (RDC India) has made a strategic move to manufacture its Accu-Chek Active blood glucose monitoring device in India, partnering with Sanmina-SCI India Pvt.

The new product packs, featuring the ‘Made in India’ tag, highlight the company’s commitment to the local market. RDC India anticipates that this move will not only make Accu-Chek Active meters more accessible to India’s growing diabetic population but also help the company reduce its carbon footprint and contribute to global sustainability goals.
Omar Sherief Mohammad, Cluster Head – India Middle East and Africa, RDC, shared his excitement about the launch, stating, “We are pleased to announce the manufacturing of Accu-Chek Active meters in India in partnership with Sanmina.
