Is Kraft’s Crunchie approach going flaky?

Irene RosenfeldCadbury is not looking such an endangered species after a set of third quarter results from Kraft that failed to wow. Unlike Cadbury’s own sparkling financial performance unveiled the other week. Where was the sucker punch before the knockout blow –  a firm bid on the table by next Monday? Or maybe that was exactly the point: Kraft is seeking to lull Cadbury into a false sense of security before Kraft ceo Irene Rosenfeld delivers the coup de grace. “We remain interested but will maintain a disciplined approach” to the Cadbury bid was her muted gloss on the Q3 results. You bet she remains interested. If she fails to produce a convincing bid, she’ll soon be history. No one at Cadbury is in any doubt that she will deliver.
