MUMBAI (NewsRise) -- Nestle India reported a 50% jump in April-June net profit, helped by cost controls and lower commodity prices, while pledging its commitment to reducing the amount of salt, sugar, and fat in its products.

Net profit in the quarter ended in June stood at 3.95 billion rupees ($57 million), compared with 2.63 billion rupees a year earlier, the noodles-to-chocolate maker said in an exchange filing. Analysts were expecting the company to report a net income of 3.72 billion rupees, according to a Reuters poll.
