The Financial Times reports on the latest efforts by a host of major food companies to help feed the poor in developing countries through fortified products sold ‘at cost’.

The FT also has news of the rising price of sugar after a surprise ruling by Indian regulators and says investors have reacted less than favourably to news of Danone’s planned rights issue, with the French food group’s share price falling at quite a rate yesterday.

The Daily Express is among those to cover Sir Terry Leahy’s earnings this year – as exclusively revealed in Tesco’s public accounts – in the wake of the retail giant’s record profits. Grown-up papers including the Daily Telegraph, The Independent and The Guardian are also interested.

The Daily Mail looks back on yesterday’s news about the £98m to be shared out around Sir Terry’s more junior Tesco colleagues and reports on today’s results from Irn-Bru maker AG Barr, as reported elsewhere on this site.
