By thinking out the right approach couldn't the company have saved a good part of Rs.20 cr. it is reported to have spent for burning the lot? Or, could it have earned some salvage instead? Could it not have saved the reverse transport costs (think of the fuel)? Could it not have saved the unnecessary air pollution caused by the burning of tons of Maggi?

  CSR in the disposal of banned Maggi packs

 

Isn't burning banned Maggi lots least appropriate of all the options on the disposal?

 

Was it so dangerous that it could not have been fed to the cows as little part of their meals, minus the spice mix of course? (Was the 'Maggi' sold earlier and consumed by humans any different?)

 

Could it not have been fed to some of those animals reared for meat?

 

Could it not have been suitably converted for use as manure?

 

Could it not have been just buried appropriately particularly since the noodles are absolutely bio-degradable?

 

By thinking out the right approach couldn't the company have saved a good part of Rs.20 cr. it is reported to have spent for burning the lot? Or, could it have earned some salvage instead? Could it not have saved the reverse transport costs (think of the fuel)? Could it not have saved the unnecessary air pollution caused by the burning of tons of Maggi?

 

Of course, it would have called for some great planning. But why wasn't at least some thinking on the options considered worthwhile? Isn't the govt too responsible on this?

 

Presume the packing materials were not burnt and shall be recycled!
