Maggi two-minute noodles is raring to make a comeback into the Indian market, as it has cleared all three laboratory tests ordered by the Bombay High Court.
Stating that the company is committed to reintroduce the product in the market soon, Nestle India clarified that sales would begin, only after Maggi was completely cleared.
“We have got the test reports from all three laboratories, in Punjab, Hyderabad, and Jaipur, as ordered by the court to test Maggi samples. All the 90 samples, covering six variants, were exhaustively tested by these laboratories, and cleared by them. They show lead much below the permissible limits,” stated Nestle India in a statement.
The company said it will now commence manufacturing the product, which was banned in June, after excessive amounts of lead in the product, after which the company had withdrawn the instant noodles from the market.
The company will continue to collaborate with the Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), food regulator, and other stakeholders, the company said.
It may be recalled Nestle India had suffered a loss of Rs 450 crore as it has destroyed more than 30,000 tonnes of the instant noodles since June.
