(Reuters) – Nestle said on Friday it is looking at options for frozen foods business Davigel, with a view to partnering the unit.
 
“This mainly involves identifying a partner to help Davigel in its next stage of growth while safeguarding the best interests of employees, customers and shareholders,” the Swiss food and beverage giant said in a statement.
