Commits to year-long impactful initiatives on the eve of Independence Day.
MAGGI has been an integral part of Indian households for nearly four decades and is strongly anchored in our repertoire of culinary choices. To celebrate the trust and affection that millions have given us and to re-dedicate ourselves on India’s 74th Independence Day, Nestlé India is announcing the launch of “MAGGI Desh Ke liye 2 Minute – Ek Chhoti Si Koshish”, a set of year-long initiatives, across the country.
The initiative will begin with a digital launch followed by several initiatives focusing on Swasthya (Health), Swachhta (cleanliness) and Sahayata (Co-operation) that will be unveiled as the year progresses.
