Tex Biosciences was the first Indian company to indigenously manufacture and supply enzymes to the leather market. Its products were import substitutes at a time when all leather enzymes were being imported, and tanners faced problems in foreign exchange availability for imports. Tex Biosciences is one among few organizations to manufacture all its enzymes in house and formulate high performance enzyme mixes for better productivity in animal farming.

I am not sure the article has an accurate title; this is more of an advertisement for Tex and contains little if any informational content.
