Kraft Heinz Mulls Selling Off, Other Options For Breakstone’s Cottage Cheese, Sour Cream Business

Recently, the Royal Bank of Canada has been hired by Kraft Heinz to review Breakstone’s business. The process basically includes sales of products. Breakstone’s Business basically sells butter, sour cream as well as cheese.  Kraft Heinz had taken the step so that it can easily understand the proper working of the dairy business.

At present, Breakstone has total revenue of $400 million and also has a total of $50 million earnings before taxes, interest rates, and amortization. Kraft Heinz has increased its overall share by 1%, which had provided a total capitalization of $39 billion. Previously, Kraft Heinz had made an announcement for selling the Canadian cheese business to Parmalat for $1.23 billion. Parmalat is an Italian company which deals in dairy products.

The lower sales in the cheese business led the company to take a charge of $4.1 from Kraft Heinz. This happened as the sales of dairy products had been declined in the US as people have started to opt for not dairy products. Last year, the shares of Dean Foods have fallen by 68%; the company had reported a total loss of $3.63 on every share. Dean Foods basically deals with milk products and in sour cream.

Back in 2017, Unilever had rebuffed the acquisition of Kraft Heinz which made the company lose its reputation in front of stakeholders and consumers.  At present Kraft Heinz has started to make strict adjustments in its business proceedings as it has started to lower its EBITDA three times. Analysts have further estimated that the company has to pay a hefty debt of $3 billion by the year 2020.

At present Kraft Heinz is facing immense competition from cheaper as well as high-end dairy product manufacturing companies. None of the spokesperson of Kraft Heinz made any comment when they were asked about the proceedings of the company.
