Explosive International Growth and Diamond Foods and Kraft to Help Offset Domestic Headwinds

The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Diamond Foods & Kraft Foods

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 25, 2011) - As the emerging world continues to develop at a rapid pace, companies in the Processed Foods sector are trying to increase their exposure in order to participate in the growth. One strategy to get into the emerging markets has been through acquisitions. The Bedford Report examines investing opportunities in the Processed Food Industry and provides equity research on Diamond Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ: DMND) and Kraft Foods, Inc. (NYSE: KFT).

Earlier this week Kraft Foods said India is one of the key markets to the overall growth prospects of the second-largest packaged food company in the world by sales. Kraft's $19-billion acquisition of Cadbury PLC last year has given it greater access to sales in fast-growing developing countries in Latin America and Asia. Kraft has since started selling some of its brands like Oreo cookies and Tang powdered drink mix in India.

Overall, the core tactic for the firm is to boost awareness and trial in its primary sectors of interest, snacks and confectionery, which remain at the beginning stage in many nations.

Earlier this year Diamond and Procter & Gamble announced that Pringles would merge with Diamond for $1.5bn from Procter & Gamble in a structured deal that will leave Diamond shareholders with 43 percent stake and P&G shareholders with 57 percent. With the integration of Pringles, Diamond Foods will gain access to diverse international markets and be positioned to exploit a range of growth opportunities. The acquisition will elevate Diamond Foods from 16th to second position in the global sweet and savoury snacks market.

Unfortunately shares of Diamond Foods have been on a rapid decline of late. Shares took a massive hit earlier this week after director Joseph Silveira committed suicide -- which analysts speculate could complicate DMND's proposed deal to buy the Pringles snack brand, Bloomberg reports.
