    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.
