The Supreme Court on Thursday revitalized the case filed in National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) against Nestle India.

Earlier, the government has sued Nestle India seeking damages of Rs 640 crore on charges of unfair trade practices, false labelling and misleading advertisements.

The top court had stayed the proceedings in 2015 after Nestle had challenged it.

The Consumer Affairs Ministry had filed a complaint against Nestle India citing provisions of the Consumer Protection Act. The complaint stated that Nestle had caused harm to Indian consumers by allegedly indulging in unfair trade practices and false labelling related to Maggi noodles.

The Centre’s petition said that the company had misled consumers by claiming that the noodles were a healthy item. After several allegations of the presence of high lead content and monosodium glutamate, Nestle had been forced to withdraw the instant noodles from the market.

The top court had on December 16, 2015, stayed the proceedings before the NCDRC and directed the CFTRI (Central Food Technological Research Institute, Mysuru) to place its test report before it.

A bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud on Thursday said that a report from Mysuru-based Central Food Technological Research Institute, where Maggi noodle samples were tested in 2016, will form the basis for the proceedings.

In the petition filed before the NCDRC, the Ministry charged Nestle India's tagline “Taste bhi healthy bhi.”

Nestle had to withdraw its instant noodles brand Maggi from the market over allegations of high lead content and presence of MSG (monosodium glutamate).

Food safety regulator FSSAI banned Maggi noodles after it found the excess level of lead in samples, terming it “unsafe and hazardous” for human consumption.

FSSAI had said Nestle violated labelling regulations on taste enhancer ‘MSG’ and ordered the company to submit a compliance report on its orders.

Such unjust practices in trading should not be allowed at all. There should be further information displayed which is true on all scales of advertisments. Lets believe the Nestle India companu chanes its ways in the future.
