Bristol-Myers Squibb in Packaged Food

Company Profile

About This Report

May 2010

Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) has a modest presence in packaged food. Its key strength is in baby food in which it has the leading global brand. However, unlike its rivals, Danone and Nestlé, BMS has not engaged in any acquisition activity. In fact, Danone has had to deny reports that it would purchase BMS’s baby food business before it was spun off as an independent entity in late 2009, as Mead Johnson Nutritionals.
