Kraft Heinz bids $143 billion for Unilever in global brand grab

Kraft Heinz bids $143 billion for Unilever in global brand grabBy Martinne Geller and Pamela Barbaglia LONDON (Reuters) – U.S. food company Kraft Heinz Co made a surprise $143 billion offer for Unilever Plc in a bid to build a global consumer goods giant, although it was flatly rejected on Friday by the maker of Lipton tea and Dove soap.
