Unilever brings in sales of $1.2bn (£719m) a year from pasta sauces, with $480m (£287m) from Ragu sales.

    MORGAN STANLEY could now be the only bidder for noodle bar chain, WAGAMAMA, and has again picked up talks with the restaurant's parent, private equity firm LION CAPITAL. Morgan Stanley's second-round bid was too low and has now reportedly placed an offer for just over £200m, which is yet to be confirmed.
