Reckitt Benckiser, the manufacturer of household goods, has insisted it is on track to reach its full-year financial targets, despite shares falling after Unilever's profit warning.

The Anglo-Dutch company, which produces Dettol and Finish dishwashing detergents, said it is continuing to work towards a net turnover growth of at least 7% and an increase in net profits of at least 18% for the full year, according to newspaper reports.

Shares in the company were down 21p at £14.11 following Unilver' profit warning.
