Tata Group Wants To Snack On Haldiram's: Report

The Tata Group‘s consumer unit is negotiating to acquire a majority stake in Haldiram’s, India’s popular snack food company. However, it is reportedly not comfortable with the $10 billion valuation sought by the snack maker.

According to Reuters, if the deal becomes successful, it would position the Tata Group to compete directly with Pepsi and Mukesh Ambani‘s Reliance Retail. The acquisition is seen as an exciting opportunity for Tata to expand its footprint in the consumer space.
