Bombay High Court allows Nestle to export Maggi noodles

Mumbai: In a partial breather for Nestle, the Bombay High Court on Tuesday allowed the company's Indian branch to export all varieties of its popular two-minute Maggi noodles.

The domestic restrictions, however, would continue to apply. The matter will now come up for further hearing on July 14.

Maggi was banned by the Food Safety & Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on June 5 after several samples were found having lead and MSG contents beyond permissible limits.

Nestle India had challenged the ban on grounds that it was 'unauthorised, arbitrary, unconstitutional for violating right to equality and trade', and violative of principles of natural justice since the company was not given a proper hearing.
