Hovid - Continuous Innovation & Quality

Carotech's parent company, Hovid, stemmed from a humble herbal stall. Dating back to 1945 when the business was first established, Hovid's only commodity was Ho Yan Hor� herbal Tea, concoted by its founder, Dr. Ho Kai Cheong. The popularity of the tea soon made it a household name in Malaysia.

In the 1980's, along with his father's success, Mr. David Ho led Hovid into a new chapter of manufacturing industry. Armed with expertise in pharmacy and natural gift of entrepreneurship, Mr. David Ho ventured into mainstream medical approaches. From that point on, Hovid grew to become one of Malaysia's leading pharmaceutical manufacturers of high quality and innovative medicinal preparations and health supplements of various dosage forms.
