    Health-conscious Nestle sells U.S. candy to Ferrero for $2.8 billion

    LONDON/MILAN (Reuters) - Swiss food group Nestle has agreed to sell its U.S. confectionery business to Italy's Ferrero for $2.8 billion, it said on Tuesday, marking CEO Mark Schneider's first big sale and a small step on its path towards healthier products. Nestle, the world's biggest packaged-food company, has cited the unit's weak position in the United States, where it trails Hershey, Mars Inc and Lindt, as the rationale for a sale. For family-owned Ferrero, the cash deal offers a chance for the Italian company to build scale quickly in that key market, where it has done two other deals in the past year.
