PAUL BUL­CKE CEO, Nes­tle SA

New Delhi: Nes­tle SA global CEO Paul Bul­cke said on Thurs­day its In­dia unit is bounc­ing back more quickly than ex­pected af­ter the Maggi ban set­back last year that led to the com­pany’s flag­ship prod­uct be­ing off the shelves for five months.

“In­dia is re­cov­er­ing faster than an­tic­i­pated, although it still weighed on the Asia zone’s over­all per­for­mance. In In­dia, the Maggi noo­dles busi­ness gained back mar­ket share but the busi­ness re­sults were af­fected by the un­favourable com­par­a­tives,” Bul­cke told in­vestors af­ter the com­pany’s first-quar­ter earn­ings, re­fer­ring to year-ago num­bers.
