    Costa Coffee will be spun off after parent Whitbread yielded to pressure from hedge funds who argued it was being held back by being grouped with the Premier Inn hotel chain. The world's second biggest coffee chain after Starbucks Corp (Hanover: SRB.HA - news) has attractive, long-term international potential, Whitbread said. Former brewing group Whitbread will retain its Premier Inn hotels and Beefeater and Brewers Fayre restaurants once the split is completed within 24 months, a timeline which some shareholders said was longer than necessary.

    P&G's vitamin boost could signal more to come

    LONDON/CHICAGO, April 20 (Reuters) - Procter & Gamble (Swiss: PG-USD.SW - news) 's $4.2 billion deal for Merck (LSE: 0O14.L - news) 's vitamin and supplements business demonstrates that major consumer companies remain hungry for health-related products. The fragmented nature of the sector and its appeal to younger consumers makes further M&A activity a likely prospect even after a spate of recent acquisitions.

    Reckitt takes hit from stumbling Scholl and price pressure

    Reckitt Benckiser lagged other consumer good makers in the first quarter as further falls in Scholl footcare and lower prices hit the British company's sales growth. Bernstein analysts said Reckitt's like-for-like sales growth was "bottom of class" of the five European food and packaged goods companies that have reported quarterly sales so far, and it shares fell more than 6 percent to their lowest level since the start of 2015. Nestle, Procter & Gamble and Unilever also saw very little pricing growth, as packaged goods makers face pressure from retailers fighting off drug store chains and Amazon.com.
