September 10th holds a special spot on the calendar for the iconic, slightly controversial, and constantly changing American meal of convenience. The meal consisted of turkey, gravy, cornbread stuffing, sweet potatoes, and buttered peas, and sold for 98 cents. The food itself was packaged in a foil-covered, segmented aluminum tray to be heated in the oven. I innovated the tray on how it could be served, coined the name and developed some unique packaging.
Rosenfeld, who spoke on a conference call with U. Cadbury rejected Kraft's cash-and-shares bid for the U. Even though Cadbury rejected its bid, Kraft has said it will work toward a recommended transaction. On the Tuesday conference call, Kraft said it does not expect to have trouble financing the transaction and that it will do so with internal cash and additional debt, the report said.
In a Monday interview with the Journal, Rosenfeld said she will work toward "constructive conversation" with Cadbury, but that Kraft will remain a disciplined buyer.
Rosenfeld said her company has made a "full and fair" proposal. Kraft, which owns brands including Oreos and Velveeta cheese, could face competition for the U. Hershey and Cadbury have discussed combinations before. Hershey distributes Cadbury products in the United States under a longtime agreement, the report said.
Prior to Kraft going public with its offer on Monday, Cadbury had already rebuffed the advance in private, said the report.

People close to Cadburywhose chief executive, Todd Stitzer, is in the midst of a four-year growth plantold the paper that the company views the bid as an opportunistic effort to take advantage of its depressed valuation.

Cadbury owns the Trident gum brand. The deal would add new distribution channels for Kraft's existing products, said the report.
The majority of Cadbury's sales are outside the United States, and more than one-third are in fast-growing emerging markets. On Monday, Nestle CEO Paul Bulcke said the company is always "open to acquisition opportunities if they fit strategically," but that its appetite is limited for now.

But a bid was delayed by market and economic turmoil. Rosenfeld contacted Cadbury Chairman Roger Carr, saying she was in the country and would like a meeting, a person familiar with the matter said.
