Accordingly, McCormick has withdrawn its proposal to acquire Premier Foods.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.

The board also considers that the company’s longer-term prospects will be enhanced by the co-operation agreement it has recently signed with Nissin Foods Holdings which will expand Premier Foods’ range of growth opportunities.
