Ferrero to Buy UK Chocolate Maker Thorntons for $178 mln

The Italian firm behind Ferrero Rocher chocolates and Nutella spread has agreed to buy British chocolate retailer Thorntons for 112 million pounds ($177 million), striking a rare deal to expand in Europe’s biggest confectionery market.┬áThe deal is the first by family-owned Ferrero International since the death earlier this year of patriarch Michele Ferrero, who was Italy’s wealthiest man and largely shied away from acquisitions as he built up a business that also spans Kinder Surprise eggs and Tic Tac mints.
