Nestle India to pay royalty to parent company

Nestle India has aggreed to pay royalty to its parent Nestle SA, said the company in its exchange filing dated April 5.

The royalty fee will be a maximum of 5.25 percent of the sales revenue from the products sold by Nestle India.

The new  royalty will start from July 1, 2024.

Two days back, the National Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission dismissed the government’s 2015 plea against the sale of Maggi noodles in favour of Nestle India.

Maggi was banned in June 2015 for six months across the country following allegations it contained chemicals beyond prescribed limits. The company had to recall and destroy 38,000 tonnes of Maggi noodles from millions of retail shelves. The ban was relaxed in November 2015.

Yes, that’s correct. Nestle India recently announced a board-approved decision to increase royalty payments to its parent company, Société des Produits Nestlé S.A., based in Switzerland. Here’s a breakdown of the key points:

  • Effective Date: This increase will be effective from July 1, 2024.
  • Current Rate vs. New Rate: Currently, Nestle India pays a 4.5% royalty on net sales. After the increase, the royalty will reach 5.25% of net sales by the end of the five-year period.
