Nestlé’s much-loved Maggi noodle range was recognised for their high quality standards by SLSI (Sri Lanka Standards Institution) at a recent awards ceremony. Maggi’s entire noodle range is now SLS certified, including Maggi Chicken, Curry, Daiya, Tikiri and Double Pack noodles as well as Maggi Devilled Chilli Chicken and Spicy Blast noodles.

SLSI is the National Standards Body in Sri Lanka and a member of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). An SLS Certification signifies that a product is manufactured in compliance with Sri Lanka Standards Specifications, and can be purchased with an assurance of high quality. Continuous compliance is assured by regularly monitoring the company’s quality assurance system via audits and product testing.

Sri Lanka Standards Institution Chairman Pradeep Gunawardana said: “I would like to offer my heartfelt congratulations to Nestlé for successfully obtaining the SLS Certification for its Maggi Noodles portfolio. The SLS product certification mark is a symbol of quality, with the product being certified by an independent government body. By achieving this certification, Maggi has gained a label of recognition for complying with quality management standards.” 

Maggi Noodles are manufactured at Nestlé’s state-of-the-art production facility in Kurunegala, where it follows the strictest quality control measures, stringent product hygiene and food safety standards, thorough quality checks and comprehensive testing, in accordance with local and international food safety laws, at each stage of the manufacturing process. 

“We are delighted to have received the highest independent guarantee of quality for our much loved Maggi Noodles,” said Priyadarshinie Karunaratne, Vice President – Food at Nestlé. “Maggi has been a trusted household favourite in the country for many decades, with deep Sri Lankan roots. As a brand that has always placed a strong focus on delivering the highest quality products with the promise of taste and goodness, this is indeed a very important milestone for Maggi.”  

Nestle Lanka Managing Director Shivani Hegde said: “At Nestlé, quality and safety have always been non-negotiable priorities. These apply to not just our food and beverages but to all our systems and services. This SLS certification not only acknowledges our commitment to providing consumers with food and beverages of the highest quality, but also marks another milestone for Nestlé in living our purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future.”

The Maggi brand has always held the needs of its consumers close to its heart. All of its noodle products are fortified with calcium, providing consumers one-third of the recommended dietary intake for this micronutrient.

In response to local consumer preference for more natural and familiar ingredients, Maggi has also renovated its popular chicken flavoured noodles to include eight popular local spices to enhance taste. The product contains vegetables, herbs and spices traditionally used in Sri Lankan kitchens like coriander, cardamom, turmeric, cumin, black pepper, nutmeg, fenugreek and aniseed. The move is part of Maggi’s “Simply Good” initiative to inspire and offer tastier and more nutritious choices. With an ever-growing trend towards health-focused cooking, the “Simply Good” plan will also continue to lower salt in the Maggi range.     

Other SLS certified Nestlé products include Cerelac, Milkmaid, Maggi Coconut Milk Powder, Nespray Nutri-Up, and Nescafé Ice Coffee. Nestlé’s Sales Promotions department is also SLS certified for ‘Good Manufacturing Operations’ in sampling, making it the first promotions department in the country to be certified for quality by SLSI.
