Kettle Foods sale likely

Kettle Foods could be put up for sale this autumn for $700m (£440m). Owner Lion Capital, which also owns Weetabix and the Wagamama chain, bought the firm in 2006 for $270m but since then the brand, which makes the upmarket Kettle Chips, has become more popular. Lion is preparing to consult NM Rothschild bankers.
