Nestle says will work with govt to bring Maggi back

nestleNestle welcomed the decision by the Bombay High Court to lift the ban on Maggi noodles imposed by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India and said it expects to see the product back on shelves soon.

“(We) will comply with the order to undertake fresh tests,” Nestle said on the order.

“It is Nestlé India’s endeavour to get MAGGI Noodles back on the shelves as soon as possible for the benefit of our consumers.”

It said the company remains committed to working with the FSSAI, FDA Maharashtra and other stakeholders.

In a major relief to the company, the Bombay High Court today overturned the ban on the noodles saying the company was not given an opportunity to present its case.

It also allowed Nestle to go for fresh testing by sending five samples of each variant of noodles to three independent laboratories in Punjab, Hyderabad and Jaipur which were accredited with National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).
