All samples of the newly manufactured batches from its three plants – Nanjangud (Karnataka), Moga (Punjab) and Bicholim (Goa) – were cleared by three National Accreditation Board for Testing Calibration Laboratories (NABL) accredited labs, as mandated by the Bombay High Court.
“Now that the orders of the Bombay High Court have been complied with, we will make our best endeavor to commence the sale of MAGGI Noodles Masala within this month as well as continue engaging with states where permissions are needed or specific directions may be necessary,” Nestle India had said in a statement earlier this month.
Nestle is also working on starting manufacturing of Maggi Noodles at its two other plants – Tahliwal and Pantnagar.
On October 26, Nestle India had said it has resumed manufacturing of the instant noodles Maggi and they will hit the markets after getting clearances from food testing labs.
In June, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) had banned Maggi noodle products saying it was “unsafe and hazardous” for consumption after finding lead levels beyond permissible limits. The company had withdrawn the instant noodle brand from the market.
