Kellogg To Spend $450M On Business Expansion In Nigeria And West Africa by TokyoBulls: 8:22pm On Sep 15, 2015
Kellogg Co (K.N) is setting up a joint venture with the African arm of Singapore's Tolaram Group to bolster its breakfast and snack food offerings in West Africa.

Kellogg will also pay $450 million for a 50 percent stake in Lagos, Nigeria-based Multipro, a food sales and distribution company owned by Tolaram, with an option to buy a stake in Tolaram's African unit.

Tolaram Africa Foods owns 49 percent of Dufil Prima Foods Plc, the maker of Indomie noodles, Minimie snacks, Power oil and Power pasta.

Kellogg said it intends to develop snacks and breakfast items for the West African market through the joint venture.

The world's largest cereal maker will also get access to Multipro's distribution network in Nigeria and Ghana, and potentially in the Dominican Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Ethiopia.

U.S. packaged food companies are increasingly looking to expand in emerging markets as customers in their biggest markets such as North America increasingly prefer cheaper private-label foods and cook more at home.

Kellogg acquired a majority stake in Egyptian biscuit maker Bisco Misr for $125 million in January.
