In addition to building a 100,000 square foot U.S. production facility in Ohio—its first production facility on U.S. soil—it is also now buying back its U.S. distribution rights from California-based Anchor Brewing. ~ BrewBound
  • As you may remember, last month Nestlé India voluntarily recalled millions of dollars’ worth of Maggi 2-Minute Noodles in response to a ban across six India states after the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) declared the noodles “unsafe and hazardous.” This declaration led the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) to conduct its own examination of the noodles to check for unsafe lead and chemical levels. On July 1, the FSA declared that Maggi 2-Minute Noodles sold in the UK were safe and did not pose any safety threat. ~ Food Manufacture UK
