GL: What export challenges have you faced?
Neeta: For us pricing and quality is not a challenge as our prices are competitive and we follow stringent quality checks as per international standards. For us the major challenge is that we do not always find good platforms to showcase our products or genuine local dealers/ agencies to promote our range of products in other countries. FIEO (Federation of Indian Export Organisations) is an organisation with a lot of credibility and as its members we aim to exhibit our products at trade fairs organised by FIEO.

GL: What is your big business dream?
Neeta: BiolineIndia aims to reach every part of the world. We especially want to cater developing nations so that they can have access to quality products at lower costs. We also aim to cater to developed nations as our competitively priced products can capture major market share.
GL: What is your message to aspiring entrepreneurs?
Neeta: Your product should be market-friendly and readily available. In our industry, often there is a gap between the manufacturing sector and the institutions. Minimising this gap will benefit aspiring entrepreneurs.
