Nestle India is exploring ways to fortify its mass consumption products to close the gap and contribute to the larger national objective.
Suresh Narayanan, Chairman & Managing Director, Nestle India, said, “With ‘Simply Good’ 2020 initiative, we are building a new, a better, and an even stronger MAGGI brand driven by our purpose which is ‘enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future’. It is a step where we want to introduce products which offer healthier choices to our consumers as we simplify our ingredients and encourage home cooking. At the forefront of this drive is the commitment to reshape MAGGI brand’s products to emphasize the use of familiar and common ingredients that people know and use for home cooking, from their own kitchen cupboard."
The company said that it has also introduced GDA (guideline daily amount) on packs to give transparent information about the nutrients like energy, total fat, saturated fat, sugar and sodium.
