In time, I think not also. If true, on unconfirmed rumors that LNCE was in the bidding process for Pringles. This shows they are battling for scale and shelf space. Higher input cost for raw materials is something most all food companies are battling, Lance included. IMO it just make sense to consolidate competitors that have good brand names, but are weaker in shelf-space, delivery costs, and margins. Due to integration and cost cutting. IMO Lance has fully not realized the benefits of it's merger with Synders. Any hypothetical suitor could cost cut more and realize a fuller benefit by integrating their product lines in.
