The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices to soft drink majors Pepsico and Coca Cola on a petition seeking that there should be a disclosure by the companies about the ingredients and chemical composition of the products.
A bench comprising Justice SB Sinha and Justice Dalveer Bhandari directed the two soft drink companies to file their replies within four weeks.
A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by an NGO, Centre for Public Interest Litigations (CPIL) had contended that the soft drinks contain some ingredients and chemicals hazardous to health.
The court had earlier issued a notice to the Centre.
