‘Bestfoods open to Unilever offer’
THE board of Bestfoods is reported to have softened its stance on a possible takeover by Unilever, reports The Independent.
The newspaper reports that Bestfoods executives told a New York analyst that they would be open to a deal with Unilever.
But Bestfoods spokeswoman insisted this should in no way be taken as a sign that the company would accept Unilevers $18.4bn offer.
