Frucor: holding out for a hero

Danone, the dairy and biscuits giant that also happens to be the world's biggest water bottler, could be rebuffed in its attempts to buy New Zealand's Frucor. One factor behind this coolness towards the bid is the low level of the offer. However, Frucor may also be keener to join forces with a company whose strengths are closer to its own development goals.

San Miguel, most famous for its leading beer brand, has been expanding aggressively outside this sphere in recent years, and it has now won a lengthy battle with Fonterra to get its hands on National Foods, the largest Australian dairy company.

Suntory has agreed to buy Frucor from Danone for a price reported to be over E600 million. Danone suffered a drop in share price despite increasing sales in the third quarter of 2008, and while the functional drinks sector in which Frucor operates has shown strong growth in recent years, it is now slowing and Danone is looking to focus on its core brands while reducing its overall level of debt.
