How to get manufactured new herbal product combinations?

We are the unit of people from medical and pharmaceutical background. We had developed few Herbal products based on research and scientific basis. However, we don’t have facility to manufacture these products. We have following queries.
  1. From where we can manufacture these products from Maharashtra or Telangana?.
  2. If we manufacture these products from some party, how we assure that our formula for the product will not be used by other people?.
Herbal products could be manufactured in two way:

In dietary and food supplements, you can’t claim any medicinal claim. You have to sell it as food supplement and there will be clear indication at packing that “Dietary and Food supplement, not for medicinal use”. You can get manufactured your product from any food supplement manufacturing company. Company will take approval as dietary supplements.

In Ayurvedic product,

For manufacturing any Ayurvedic product in India, manufacturer’s require product’s approval from Ayush department. Product’s approval is sent in prescribed format having following requirements:

S. No. Category Ingredient(s) Indication (s) Safety Study Experience/Evidence of Effectiveness
1 2 3 4 5 6
Published Literature Proof of Effectiveness
1 Patent or Proprietary Medicine As per Text Textual Rationale Not Required of ingredients Pilot study as per relevent protocol for Ayurveda , Sidha and Unani drugs
2 Ayurveda, siddha and Unani drugswith any of the ingredients of Schedule E(1) of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 As per text Existing Required Required Required

Note: Photo-copy of the textual reference of ingredients used in the formulation as mentioned in the book will be attached with file.

In case of Classical Ayurvedic Products e.g. Single herbs, Chawanprash, Ristha, Ashava etc, Manufacturer need to take approval from AYUSH department just by mentioning name and prescribed book name (Along with photo copy of textual reference). Ayurvedic manufacturer can manufacturer classical products without any alteration in label and indications as described in Ayurvedic Books.

You can get manufactured your product from Ayurvedic third party Manufacturers present in Maharashtra or Telangana.

For protection of your formula, you have to apply for patent with complete details and scientific research documents. Once your product is patented, no one can use same formula without your permission. You will authorized any Ayurvedic manufacturing Company to manufacture this formulation for you. Patent is only alternative otherwise if you get formulation approval at manufacturer basis, he will be free to manufacture this formulation for any other party without your prior permission.
