Nestle India to resume exporting of Maggi


New Delhi: Nestle India is in the process of resuming exports of its Maggi instant noodles to various global markets after it got a go ahead from Bombay High Court earlier in the week. The company has started the logistical arrangements to resume the exports. Maggi noodles were banned in India on June 5 by the central food safety regulator FSSAI over presence of lead beyond permissible limit as well as taste enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG).

“The logistical arrangements to resume exports have begun after Tuesday’s decision by the Bombay High Court which clarified that the export of Maggi noodles could continue,” Nestle said in a statement.The FSSAI order was later challenged by Nestle India before the Bombay High Court. The ban, however, continues for Maggi instant noodles in the domestic market.

Nestle also said that Canadian authorities have given clean chit to its instant noddles brand after finding no health related hazard. “We welcome the fact that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s investigation did not find any health risk associated with the consumption of Maggi noodles sold in Canada,” Nestle said.
