McCormick & Company, the US-based spices and spices group, has announced that it does not intend to make an offer for Premier Foods after completing its due diligence review of the British food business. McCormick has, after careful consideration, concluded that it would not be able to propose a price that would be recommended by the Board of Premier Foods while also delivering appropriate returns for McCormick shareholders. Accordingly, McCormick has withdrawn its proposal to acquire Premier Foods.

The board of Premier Foods has expressed appreciation for the open and constructive spirit in which the engagement with McCormick was conducted.
