The Kraft-Heinz Co. - the next steps?

This deal will see Heinz pick up a 51% stake in Kraft Foods, becoming a shot-caller in anybody’s language...

Draft Agenda as follows:
  • Key driver is changing eating habits in many countries, resulting in reduced sales and over-capacity, a trigger for more of the same
  • Obvious synergies in terms of geographical and category coverage globally
  • Increased negotiating muscle ref. major global, local customers and bought-in goods and services...
  • ...which will help when rationalising credit terms, margins and trade support
  • Inevitable regulator-driven disposals arising from competition issues
  • Leading to acquisition opportunities for other suppliers…

Next one, please?
