KIDO Corp. (formerly Kinh Do Corp.) plans to sell its remaining stake in its snack business to a foreign company this year, local media reported Friday.
The negotiation process is underway, news website Saigon Times Online cited KIDO’s Chairman Tran Kim Thanh as saying.
KIDO Corp., headquartered in Ho Chi Minh City, produces confectionery products including biscuits, buns, snacks, cakes, mooncakes, ice cream and yogurt under the brand names of Kinh Do, AFC, Cosy, Solite, Merino, Wel Yo and others.
