Rajinder K. Bammi, Ph.D., friend and mentor to Sabinsa Corporation of East Windsor, NJ, passed away in mid-December. Sabinsa credits Bammi with being “one of the primary people responsible for Sabinsa’s portfolio of health-enhancing ingredients”
Bammi played several important roles at Sabinsa and Sami Labs throughout his tenure there, which included president of Sabinsa R&D (1997–1999), director and president of Sami Labs (1999–2007) and chairman (2007–present).
Stated company founder Muhammed Majeed, Ph.D., “[Dr. Bammi] made innumerable contributions in the growth of the company and was an integral part of the R&D efforts upon which our success is based. We will all miss him enormously.”
