Updated on July 15, 2015


Location: Akkulam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India

HLL Lifecare Limited (HLL) started to serve the Nation in the area of Health Care, on March1, 1966, with its incorporation as a corporate entity under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of the Government of India. HLL was set up in the natural rubber rich state of Kerala, for the production of male contraceptive sheaths for the National Family Planning Programme.

The foundation stone was laid by the then Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Sushila Nayyar at Peroorkada in Thiruvanthapuram on January 14, 1967.

The company commenced its commercial operations on April 5, 1969 at Peroorkada in Thiruvanthapuram . The plant was established in technical collaboration with M/s Okomoto Industries Inc. Japan. Two most modern plants were added, one at Thiruvanthapuram and the other at Belgium in 1985.

The new condom plant inaugurated by the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss on 24th November 2007 has added another 283 million pcs to the Peroorkada plant’s existing capacity. With this the production facility at Peroorkada has emerged as one of the largest single manufacturing Plant’s in the world for the production of Condoms, with a capacity to produce over 1 Billion Condoms a year. With the addition of this capacity, HLL today has an annual production capacity of 1.316 billion condoms.

HLL is today a multi-product, multi-unit organization addressing various public health challenges facing humanity.

On the path of rapid growth, HLL has set its sights to be a Rs 1000 crore company by the year 2010.

HLL has been declared a Mini Ratna Company by the Government of India and upgraded as a Schedule B PSU.

HLL Life care Limited is the only company in the world manufacturing and marketing the widest range of Contraceptives. It is unique in providing a range of Condoms, including Female Condoms, Intra Uterine Devices, Oral Contraceptive Pills – steroidal, non- steroidal and Emergency Contraceptive pills; Contraceptive Cream, and Tubal Rings.

Mission and Objectives


Over the past three decades, HLL has developed its mission as “Building a healthier and happier India”. The effort toward attainment of this mission called for active role in creating planned social change. This role has necessitated the building of competencies in the area of brand marketing, social marketing, logistics planning and project management. These activities are supported by a strong manufacturing base.


  • Building an enduring manufacturing base for contraceptives and health care products.
  • Logistics planning and Management for ensuring the accessibility of HLL brands “at the arm’s length of desire”.
  • Effective practice of Social Marketing Programmes aimed at addressing the needs of the society and providing impressive return on investment to Government of India.
  • Conceptualization and implementation of social projects aimed at creating planned and sustained behavioral change in the areas of Reproductive and Sexual health.
  • Commercializing innovations in the area of health.


Hindustan Latex Limited, a public sector company established more than three decades ago, came to occupy a premier position in the country’s family planning and health care programs. The company not only established itself as the leader in the segment of manufacture of contraceptives, but also diversified itself into manufacturing and marketing of other related health care products. Social marketing became one of the key areas of the company to ensure the quality contraceptives are available to the people at an affordable price.

Though the direct marketing operations of the company were doing well over years, the company could not look at profitability alone, which was however being sustained through its exports and direct marketing. The company realized the need for family planning and health care programs aimed at the poor and disadvantaged sections of the society. HLL thus ventured into social sector projects aimed at creating a planned social change. It was with this objective that HLL formed the Hindustan Latex Family Planning Promotion Trust, a non-profit organization promoted by HLL.

Since its establishment in 1992, HLFPPT has been undertaking the conceptualization and implementation of various social sector projects. The trust’s area of operations extends to the various states of India. Although the Trust was established for promoting the agenda of family planning, the Trust’s activities have now been broad based to focus on reproductive and sexual health. The Trust is expected to develop into a major civil society participant working in the health sector, in partnership with a range of development actors.
