This recognition is a testament to our commitment to providing nutritious and healthy food options to consumers across the country combined with the determination of the Nestlé India team to bring this vision to life. I am extremely pleased that we have launched millet-based products such as Nestlé a + Masala Millet with bajra, Nestlé CEREGROW grain selection with ragi, and MAGGI Oats Noodles with Millet Magic with jowar and ragi amongst others. I extend my gratitude and sincerely congratulate the Government of India for bringing millets to centre stage and making 2023 the International Year of Millets.
