    Unilever posts solid start to 2019 with strong emerging market sales

    Consumer goods group Unilever is on track to meet its performance goals this year after strong sales in emerging markets led to a better-than-expected start to 2019. The maker of Dove soap and Ben & Jerry's ice cream said on Thursday it still expects underlying sales growth in the lower half of a 3 to 5 percent range this year. Emerging markets, where Unilever generates 58 percent of its sales, grew 5 percent in the quarter, offsetting a mere 0.3 percent gain in developed markets, which were hurt by economic uncertainty and intense price competition in Europe, particularly in Germany and France.

    Nestle upbeat after U.S. and China boost first-quarter growth

    Nestle posted higher-than-expected sales growth in the first three months of the year after good momentum in the United States and China, putting it on track to meet its goal of more than 3 percent organic growth this year. The world's biggest food group, with brands such as Maggi soup and KitKat bars, said its biggest markets, the United States and China, had shown a strong trend in the quarter, with the largest contributions from pet care, dairy and infant nutrition. Nestle and its peers are trying to buck a consumer trend towards fresh, locally produced foods, which has hit sales of packaged goods, by focusing on fast-growing categories like infant formula and coffee.

    Unilever's Schmidt's Naturals to launch hemp-oil deodorants at retailers in September

    Unilever PLC will be taking its first step in the U.S. hemp market in September, when its subsidiary brand Schmidt's Naturals launches a line of hemp-oil deodorants that will be available at certain retailers. That line will be followed later in the fall by a range of CBD products, according to Schmidt's Naturals CEO, Michael Cammarata. CBD, a non-intoxicating ingredient in the cannabis and hemp plant, has come under the purview of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, who do not allow it to be added to food, beverages or cosmetics, for now. The FDA has promised to hold talks this month on regulation of CBD, which it views as a drug because it's included in the only cannabis-based drug that has won FDA approval as a treatment for severe forms of childhood epilepsy. "We are working with our supply chain to ensure that we comply with FDA and state rules," Cammarata told MarketWatch. Schmidt's Naturals has been working on a CBD line for a year and a half, he said and is looking to ensure a consistent, high-quality supply of the ingredient. U.S.-listed shares of Unilever were down 0.5% Tuesday, but have gained about 8% in 2019, while the S&P 500 has gained 15%.

    FTSE clings to six-month high as potential further Brexit delay lifts mood

    The FTSE 250 bounced 1.2 percent - its biggest rise in two-and-a-half months - for a fifth straight session of gains, while the FTSE 100 added 0.4 percent and ended the session at its highest level since early October. Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday said she would seek another Brexit delay beyond April 12, hoping to try to agree a European Union divorce deal with the opposition Labour leader. "None of this guarantees Britain won't bumble out of the EU sans deal, especially given the frothing fury May's cross-party olive branch has caused among the hard right of her Tory party," said Spreadex Analyst Connor Campbell.
