Supreme Court Issues Notice To Nestle India on Food Safety Regulator's Plea

The Supreme Court directed the hearing of the matter on January 16 as Nestle, represented by the senior counsel Harish Salve, said that it would file its response by January 5.

New Delhi:  The Supreme Court today sought response from Nestle and Maharashtra government on a Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) plea seeking a stay of the Bombay High Court order prohibiting food testing by the government labs not accredited under new food safety law.

A top court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Prafulla C. Pant also issued notice on a FSSAI plea for putting the sale of Maggi on hold as it was a proprietary product and its sale was contrary to the Section 22 of the FSSAI Act.

Comments
However, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the court that FSSAI for now was not pressing for this prayer.

The court directed the hearing of the matter on January 16 as Nestle, represented by the senior counsel Harish Salve, said that it would file its response by January 5.
