MUMBAI: Nestle shares rose by nearly 5 per cent after its popular product Maggi cleared the tests conducted by Central Food Technological Research Institute under the directive of the Supreme Court.

On NSE, the scrip moved up by 4.71 per cent to close at Rs 6,147.80.

Led by the uptick in the stock, the company's market valuation rose by Rs 2,536.76 crore to Rs 59,158.76 crore.

"CFTRI has submitted analysis report on Maggi noodles to the Supreme Court. We have been provided with a copy of the reports. We are happy that all 29 samples tested by CFTRI are clear," Nestle India said in a statement yesterday.

The report state that lead levels for all samples are within the permissible limits, it added.
