Vandana Luthra is the founder of VLCC Health Care Ltd., one of the Middle East region’s leading health and wellness provider specializing in scientific weight management solutions, skin and hair care treatments, beauty services and personal care. Vandana established VLCC in 1989 as a Transformation Center in Safdarjung Development Area in New Delhi, India. It has now evolved to a business that operates across 16 countries including India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Kenya.
Speaking on the occasion, Founder & Vice Chairperson of VLCC, Mrs. Vandana Luthra said, “It is our ambition that going forward with the unmatched standards in slimming, beauty and fitness services that will be offered at this center, will play a key role in making VLCC emerge as a benchmark in the preventive healthcare and wellness domain in the UAE – something the people of Dubai and UAE could take pride in.”
Mrs. Luthra also expressed her and VLCC’s keenness to work closely with the Dubai Health Authority in tackling the issue of obesity, which has emerged as one of the major challenges confronting the global healthcare system at the moment, including that of the UAE. “As a conscientious corporate citizen and a leading player in the preventive health-care domain, of which the wellness sector is an integral part, VLCC has always seen itself as a custodian of people’s health and wellbeing, and been acutely aware of the tremendous responsibilities that go with it,” Mrs. Luthra said.
Obesity is a major adult risk factor in the UAE, and the GCC region at large. The World Health Organization (WHO) says obesity may cause cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases and many types of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
Elaborating on VLCC’s future plans for the UAE, Mrs. Luthra said VLCC is exploring the possibility of setting up its first VLCC Institute of Beauty & Nutrition in the country in the next 12 months so that more youth could take advantage of the skill development opportunities provided by the institute, which will enable them to find suitable jobs as also enable them to become self-employed in the fast growing beauty and wellness services industry. “Given that the beauty and wellness sector has traditionally employed more women than men, focusing on skill development in this arena will also contribute to making women become self-reliant,” Mrs. Luthra pointed out.
Mrs. Luthra also shared that VLCC recently launched BelleWave, its premium Swiss line of professional skincare treatments and home-care products in the UAE and further plan to expand the distribution coverage of its VLCC Natural Sciences™ range of personal care products in the country. “I hope that VLCC’s growing presence in the UAE will further contribute in some humble way to strengthening the bilateral business relationship between India and the UAE,” Mrs. Luthra added.
Mrs. Luthra lastly said Ladies & Gentlemen, We are very hopeful that with your good wishes and support, VLCC, in the days ahead, will continue to play a catalytic role in transforming the Wellness domain in the UAE and enable millions of people across the economic value chain to meet their preventive healthcare needs.
Before I conclude, I would like to reiterate once again our deep commitment to Dubai and the UAE and assure you that VLCC is here to stay for the long haul.
Thank you for coming today, and wishing all of you long, happy, and healthy lives.
May Allah bless us all!
Thank you VLCC for the lovely Kit.
