Nestle the international food giant today announced that it had bought MFI the British flat pack furniture retailer.
A press release from Nestle spoke of the obvious synergy between the two companies, and the huge cost savings to be made by the acquisition.
Further reading reveals that Nestle will add a melamine production facility to it's milk processing plants, thus saving millions in disposal costs of the additive formerly added to milk powder, whilst at the same time producing furniture at virtually no cost.
The shares of Nestle soared on the news. A spokesperson for the receivers of MFI expressed satisfaction at the deal which will raise some much needed cash for the creditors.
"This is a benchmark solution and should counter any criticism that we do not furnish value as liquidators" the spokesperson added.
