  • Brazil taking large stake in food sector AAP - 9 hours ago

    Demand from China, rising domestic purchasing power and cheap land and labour have helped Brazilian giants earn themselves a healthy slice of the international food sector, as shown by the Heinz-Kraft merger. HJ Heinz's owner 3G Capital, billionaire Jorge Paulo Lemann's investment fund, will have a 51 per cent stake of the new group under an agreement with Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway to create North America's third-largest food and beverage conglomerate. The move comes after Brazilian group JBS, the world's market leader in meat, became the world's number two global food producer by revenue after Nestle.

It was announced in 2003, and quota levels have been slowly raised in recent years to get farmers used to producing more milk.
