    Health-conscious Nestle sells U.S. candy to Ferrero for $2.8 billion

    LONDON/MILAN (Reuters) - Swiss food group Nestle has agreed to sell its U.S. confectionery business to Italy's Ferrero for $2.8 billion, it said on Tuesday, marking CEO Mark Schneider's first big sale and a small step on its path towards healthier products. Nestle, the world's biggest packaged-food company, has cited the unit's weak position in the United States, where it trails Hershey, Mars Inc and Lindt, as the rationale for a sale. For family-owned Ferrero, the cash deal offers a chance for the Italian company to build scale quickly in that key market, where it has done two other deals in the past year.

    Chinese tourists raid Danish supermarkets for infant milk powder

    COPENHAGEN, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 15 (Reuters) - Following a string of food safety scandals, Chinese tourists visiting Copenhagen have this year stocked up on Danish-made organic infant milk formula, prompting some supermarkets to limit the number of cans each customer can buy. Arla Foods, one of Europe's biggest dairy companies, says Chinese demand for premium products and high food safety standards in Denmark have helped it almost double its sales to China this year. Food safety has been an important issue in China since a 2008 scandal killed six infants who had been fed milk powder that had been adulterated with the toxic melamine, normally used to make plastics.
