Nestlé India welcomes the orders passed by Hon’ble Supreme Court in MAGGI Noodles matter today.
Nestlé India had challenged two interim orders of National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) before the Hon’ble Supreme Court in 2015. As per directions of Hon’ble Supreme Court, samples were sent to Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) and the analysis results showed that samples were compliant for Lead and other relevant parameters.
The appeal filed by Nestlé India against the two interim orders passed by National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) came up for hearing today. As per the lawyers who appeared for Nestlé India, Hon’ble Supreme court in view of reports received from CFTRI, has agreed with Nestlé India’s contention and has set aside both the interim orders passed by NCDRC which were challenged by Nestlé India. The Supreme Court has also directed that the reports received from CFTRI will be the basis for proceedings before NCDRC. Full details will be known only after receipt of the order by the Company.
