WhiteWave Foods could become acquisition target, says Bernstein

After Dean Foods (DF) announced that that it will be spinning off a portion of its remaining equity interest in the WhiteWave (WWAV) foods company, Bernstein thinks that Dean's move could pave the way for the acquisition of WhiteWave. The firm thinks that WhiteWave could be particularly attractive to General Mills (GIS).
