    Nestle shakes up infant nutrition to tackle local rivals

    LONDON/ZURICH (Reuters) - Nestle (NESN.S), the world's largest packaged food firm, is reorganising its infant nutrition unit to compete with regional rivals, the latest in a string of shake-ups for global packaged goods companies struggling to reignite sales. The change comes five months after Nestle's new CEO listed its highly profitable infant formula as a priority focus. Infant nutrition is a key battleground for Nestle and rivals such as Danone (DANO.PA), which also ranks its baby unit as its most profitable, and Reckitt Benckiser (RB.L), which recently bought Mead Johnson, the maker of infant formula Enfamil.

Several global companies, including GlaxoSmithKline and Reckitt Benckiser, have expressed interest in bidding for the unit, which had sales of about $3.4 billion in 2016. The prospective sale, which is being led by Centerview Partners, Guggenheim Securities and Morgan Stanley, was first mooted on Oct. 10, when Pfizer said it was considering strategic options for the unit.

    Reckitt to reshape as sales growth evaporates

    Britain's Reckitt Benckiser will split its business into two divisions -- consumer healthcare and home and hygiene products -- to try to revive sales that are set to stall this year. It hopes to improve performance in its newly expanded health business, while bringing greater focus and accountability to its slower-growth home and hygiene business. Reckitt, whose products range from Durex condoms to Lysol disinfectant, has blamed fallout from a cyber attack, a failed product launch and a safety scandal in South Korea for its lacklustre sales.

    FTSE on the defensive as stronger pound drags

    Britain's main share index fell behind European rivals on Monday in response to a rise in sterling which hit companies that earn money in dollars such as the mining and energy sectors. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) fell 0.2 percent to 7,507.89 points, with the biggest dollar-earning stocks, miners and oil majors, the worst-performing as sterling gained against the U.S. currency. Weakness in sterling had helped the index to produce its strongest week in 10 months last week but the pound's bounce from lows after the weekend put pressure on the index, which has a big international exposure.
