    Unilever strikes deal over South African spreads business

    Unilever has agreed a $900 million deal with South African investor Remgro , buying Remgro's 26 percent stake in its South African subsidiary in exchange for its southern African spreads business and a cash payment. The deal is the first step in Unilever's broader exit from its shrinking spreads business, a move it promised earlier this year following an unsolicited $143 billion takeover offer from Kraft-Heinz. The Anglo-Dutch consumer goods maker, owner of Dove soap and Ben & Jerry's ice cream, said it would buy Remgro's 25.75 percent shareholding in Unilever South Africa in exchange for the spreads business in South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland plus 4.9 billion rand ($371 million) in cash.
