Maggi is the most desired instant noodles in our country. Me and my sister grew up eating this, and now my son is doing the same. Fit for any age group, maggi just sorts out all your hunger cramps just in few minutes.
Maggi is an international brand of seasonings, instant soups and noodles owned by MRR, Nestlé since 1947. The original company came into existence in 1875 in Switzerland, when Julius Maggi took over his father’s mill. He quickly became a pioneer of industrial food production, aiming to improve the nutritional intake of worker families. Maggi was the first to bring protein-rich legume meal to the market, and followed up with a ready-made soup based on legume meal in 1886. In 1897, Julius Maggi founded the company Maggi GmbH in the German town of Singen, where it is still based today.
In May 2015, Food Safety Regulators from Barabanki, a district of Uttar Pradesh, India reported that samples of Maggi 2 Minute Noodles had unexpectedly high levels of monosodium glutamate, as well as up to 17 times the permissible limit of lead. On 5 June 2015, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) ordered a recall of all nine approved variants of Maggi instant noodles and oats masala noodles from India, suggesting them unsafe and hazardous for human consumption. On the same day, Food Safety Agency of United Kingdom launched an investigation to find levels of lead in Maggi noodles. On 6 June 2015 the Central Government of India banned nationwide sale of Maggi noodles for an indefinite period. In August, tests performed by the US health regulator FDA showed no dangerous lead levels in the products.On 13 August 2015, the nationwide ban was struck down by the Bombay high court. The court stated that proper procedure was not followed in issuing the ban and called into question the test results, as the samples were not tested at authorized laboratories accredited to the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).
Maggi came back to the shelves in India in November 2015.Nestle has also been running a campaign to win back trust of members of the Indian community Nestle in India resumed production of maggi in all five plants,that is Nanjangud (Karnataka), Moga (Punjab) Bicholim (Goa) and Tahliwal and Pantnagar in Himachal Pradesh on 30 November 2015.
