    LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Food giants Nestle, Kraft Heinz and Unilever are expected to bid for GlaxoSmithKline's Horlicks health nutrition business, which could fetch more than $4 billion (£2.8 billion), according to people familiar with the matter. GSK has started a strategic review of Horlicks - a malt-based drink brand popular in India – and some of its smaller products, after buying Novartis out of their consumer healthcare venture for $13 billion on Tuesday. The main asset on the block is GSK's 72.5 percent stake in its Indian subsidiary GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare.

    British shares fell to a new 15-month low on Wednesday as Kingfisher (KGF.L) and Moss Bros (MOSB.L) piled more bad news on a UK retail industry reeling from the surge in e-commerce. Any end to the sustained squeeze on UK household incomes was not showing through in the retail industry on Wednesday, however. Formal clothing chain Moss Bros lost nearly a quarter of its market value after a profit warning it blamed on supply chain problems and fewer customers in its stores.

    Primark-owner AB Foods sees margin boost from weaker dollar​

    Associated British Foods said profit margins at its Primark business are set to benefit from the recent weakness of the U.S. dollar versus the pound, given that the fashion chain sources the majority of its goods in dollars from the Far East. Primark, which trades from about 350 stores in Britain, continental Europe and the United States accounts for about half of AB Foods' revenue and profit. AB Foods said Primark's operating margin in the first half of its 2017-18 financial year would be close to that of the previous year, with better buying terms virtually offsetting the adverse effect of the U.S. dollar exchange rate.
