Nestle resumes manufacturing of Maggi noodles at Pantnagar

Yet to commence production in Tahliwal (Himachal Pradesh)

Nestle India has resumed the manufacturing of magi noodles at the Pantnagar factory in Uttarakhand, making this the fourth factory currently manufacturing the product after Nanjungud in Karnataka, Moga in Punjab and Bicholim in Goa.

In a filing to the BSE, Suresh Narayanan, CMD, Nestle India, said, “As we welcome back Maggi noodles we have reached out to more than 600 towns and cities, covered around two lakh outlets and sold over 4.5 crore packs.”

The ban order imposed by the Uttarakhand government was only up to September 30 and the Bombay High Court has said aside the order passed by the FSSAI. The company has fully complied with the directions of HC before commencing manufacture and sales, the statement said.

Nestle is yet to commence production in Tahliwal (Himachal Pradesh) and is engaging with the authorities and other stakeholders for the necessary clearances it added.

The company said that its suppliers, vendors, distributors, retailers, among others are in the process of re-activating the systems and processes.

The company is also awaiting clearances in some States to sell Maggi, for which it is engaging with the authorities.
