    Under investor pressure, Danone eyes more profit growth in 2018

    Food group Danone said on Friday it would accelerate sales growth this year and deliver a further rise in profits as it seeks to respond to pressure from investors. Danone, the world's largest yoghurt maker, reported overall 2017 earnings that slightly beat expectations, with solid demand for baby food and waters in China more than offsetting weak dairy sales. Danone, whose brands include Evian Water, Activia yoghurt and Bledina baby food, said it was targeting a double-digit rise in 2018 underlying earnings per share (EPS), excluding the impact of the sale of a $1.9 billion (£1.3 billion) stake in Japan's Yakult announced this week.

    Growth formula eludes under-fire Nestle, L'Oreal stake unchanged

    Weakness in North America led Nestle (NESN.S) to forecast only modest organic sales growth this year after its slowest gain in at least two decades, giving fuel to investor Daniel Loeb's campaign to overhaul strategy at the world's biggest food group. Nestle also said it had no intention to increase its 23 percent stake in French cosmetics company L'Oreal (OREP.PA) but stressed it remained committed to the group. Shares in the maker of KitKat chocolate bars and Nescafe coffee hit a 10-month low after it said organic growth, which excludes acquisitions and currency moves, was only 2.4 percent in 2017, missing even the lowest estimate of 2.6 percent in a Reuters poll of analysts.

    RELX to lose the Dutch half of its Anglo-Dutch identity

    RELX (REL.L) (RELN.AS), the Anglo-Dutch group created by the merger of Reed Business Information and Elsevier 25 years ago, said it would scrap its dual structure in favour of a single London-based parent company to simplify its operations. The move came as the group, which owns LexisNexis legal research, reported a 6 percent rise in underlying adjusted operating profit of 2.28 billion pounds for 2017. Chief Executive Erik Engstrom said a single parent company was a natural step following the renaming of the group from Reed Elsevier and creating a single entity three years ago.

    Sime Darby's Africa ambitions stall pending new deforestation rules

    GBAH, Liberia/KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - When Malaysia's biggest plantation company Sime Darby leased 220,000 hectares of lush forest in northwest Liberia in 2009, executives said they had found a much needed new frontier in global palm oil development. Undulating hills, a tropical climate and plenty of untouched land made the West African country's interior ideal for palm oil growers running out of room in Southeast Asia. Nine years later, however, Sime Darby Plantation (SIPL.KL) has planted only 10,000 hectares in Liberia and has not laid a seed in two years, stalled by uncertainties over new environmental standards.

    Walmart makes push to sell online goods at $10 and up to capture elusive e-commerce profit

    Walmart’s goal is to see higher profit margins selling these more expensive items given the built-in cost of delivering goods purchased online, according to the people familiar with Walmart’s new strategy. In meetings last week with suppliers including Procter & Gamble Co, Unilever PLC, Kimberly-Clark Corp and Clorox Co, Walmart's e-commerce chief Marc Lore said Walmart.com wants to focus on merchandise priced at least $5 and preferably, more than $10, the people said. "Walmart has started to understand it cannot make money if they offer the lowest prices online on every item and then spend $4 or $5 trying to ship it over," said one supplier present at the meetings.
