    Unilever's Ghana Unit Sees Growing Economy Bolstering Sales

    Rapid economic expansion and a stable currency will continue to bolster Unilever NV’s Ghana unit after revenue grew by a fifth in the first three months of 2018, according to its managing director. The manufacturer and distributor of Lux soap and Lipton tea wants to take advantage of favorable conditions in the West African nation by widening its distribution network and introducing more products, MD Ziobeieton Yeo said Thursday in an interview in the capital, Accra. An oil-fueled boom has lifted Ghana’s economic expansion to 8.5 percent last year and the International Monetary Fund forecasts growth of 6.3 percent in 2018.

    Kraft Heinz Prepares to Take On Hellmann’s With a New Mayonnaise and ‘Mayochup’

    Hellmann’s maker Unilever PLC and Kraft Heinz Co., which owns Miracle Whip, are cutting prices and slinging out new concoctions as they battle changing eating habits, an array of new competitors and each other. The two, which together account for more than 80% of U.S. mayonnaise sales, are duking it out because they are at risk of losing shelf space to faster-growing rivals. U.S. sales of mayonnaise fell 6.7% between 2012 and 2017, according to Euromonitor.

    IFF to buy Israel's Frutarom for $7.1 billion, nearing top spot

    JERUSALEM/NEW YORK (Reuters) - International Flavors & Fragrances Inc (IFF.N) agreed to buy Israeli flavours and ingredients maker Frutarom (FRUT.TA) for $7.1 billion (5.24 billion pounds) in cash and stock on Monday, vying for the industry's top spot with market leader Givaudan (GIVN.S). The flavours and fragrances sector was expected to consolidate after Geneva-based Givaudan said in March it planned to launch an offer for French natural ingredients firm Naturex (NATU.PA) and Israeli media reported last month that Frutarom had attracted takeover interest. The deal marks another bet on the explosion of consumer preferences for smaller upstart brands that feature more natural products focused on health and wellness.

    Dutch PM Rutte survives censure vote over dividend tax row

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte survived a censure vote in the early hours of Thursday called by lawmakers who believe he withheld information about how his Cabinet reached an unpopular decision to scrap a tax on dividends. Almost all opposition lawmakers believe Rutte misled them when he said in November he did not remember there being any memos prepared during negotiations on the issue. On Tuesday, the government released nearly 60 pages of documentation uncovered after a freedom of information request.

    Dutch PM Rutte under fire as row over dividend tax cut escalates

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was summoned to parliament on Wednesday to explain how the government decided to get rid of a tax opposed by big businesses, after the overnight release of confidential memos describing lobbying by Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) and Shell (LSE: RDSB.L - news) . The opposition has criticised last year's move to scrap a 15 percent tax on dividends paid by multinational businesses. It has now become the centre of a political storm for Rutte, who had repeatedly said he had no memory of documents showing the decision-making process.

    Dutch government memos: Tax cut was 'decisive' for Unilever's HQ choice

    The scrapping of a Dutch tax on dividends was "decisive" for Unilever in deciding whether it would choose the Netherlands or Britain as its base, according to memos released by the Dutch government as part of a domestic political row on Tuesday. The memos compiled in the summer of 2017 as Prime Minister Mark Rutte was engaged in negotiations to form a government recorded lobbying by both Shell and Unilever against the tax, which forced them to maintain awkward dual share structures in order to ensure British investors were not disadvantaged.

    Reckitt takes hit from stumbling Scholl and price pressure

    Reckitt Benckiser (Xetra: A0M1W6 - news) 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. Rakesh Kapoor, who runs the maker of Durex condoms, Lysol disinfectant and Mucinex cold medicine, said on Friday that pricing power could soon return as commodity costs edge up, but said it was hard to pinpoint when.

    P&G, Nestle, Unilever forgo price increases to move product

    ZURICH/LONDON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Quarterly sales growth at Nestle, Procter & Gamble and Unilever was driven almost entirely by shifting more goods, in a stark illustration of how hard it is for consumer products makers to raise prices in a competitive retail environment. The result has been mounting tension, which recently erupted in a clash between Nestle and European retailers that saw some of the Swiss company's goods briefly taken off store shelves. Nestle's 2.8-percent underlying sales growth only got a 0.2 percent boost from higher prices, and Unilever's 3.4 percent growth just a 0.1 percent lift.
