New Delhi | Newly appointed India Chief of Nestle India Suresh Narayanan said today the popular instant noodle brand Maggi will be back in business as soon as possible.
Mr Narayanan, 55, who officially took charge of India operations replacing Managing Director Etienne Benet, who stepped down on July 25 said dairy, chocolates and confectioneries will all be in focus and push growth.
‘The journey of Maggi will continue and the journey of other categories will be emphasized’, Mr Narayanan said.
The Bombay High Court is expected to deliver its verdict on the Maggi on Monday.
Food regulator on June 5 had banned the sale of Maggi after it found high amount of lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG) in samples.
For Nestle India, Maggi was the dominant brand and accounted for 31.5 per cent sales in 2014.
