(Bloomberg) -- Kraft Heinz Co., in the midst of building a turnaround plan, hired the leader of Campbell Soup Co.’s fast-growing snacks business to lead its U.S. operations.Carlos Abrams-Rivera, 52, will join Kraft Heinz in February. He previously was president of Campbell’s popular Pepperidge Farm brand, which makes Goldfish crackers and Mint Milano cookies. He also worked at Mondelez International Inc. and started his career at Kraft Foods before its 2015 merger with Heinz that was engineered by Warren Buffett and the private equity firm 3G Capital.Abrams-Rivera’s hiring is a rarity in a company that has stayed mostly within the 3G family when replenishing its executive ranks. Kraft Heinz Chief Executive Officer Miguel Patricio and Chief Procurement Officer Marcos Eloi both came from 3G-backed Anheuser-Busch InBev SA. Chief Financial Officer Paulo Basilio, who returned to the role in September, has been a partner at 3G since 2012.Since Patricio joined Kraft Heinz last year, investors have been eager to see how he will turn around the flailing business. The company had a tumultuous 2019 that included weak profit, a $15.4 billion writedown and an SEC subpoena. Amid this backdrop, it seems Kraft Heinz is moving beyond the typical 3G playbook, which is to slash costs until profit rises and then acquire competitors and repeat the process.“I want talent, and that’s what I’m looking for,” Patricio told Bloomberg in an interview Wednesday. He cited Abrams-Rivera’s track record at Campbell, including oversight of brands that proved to be consistently successful. The growth of Pepperidge Farm and Campbell’s acquisition of Snyder’s-Lance under Abrams-Rivera drew Kraft Heinz’s attention, he said.“The story of his career is building brands and turning brands around,” Patricio said.Abrams-Rivera will face that very challenge at Kraft Heinz. Patricio mentioned Heinz Ketchup and Philadelphia cream cheese as top performers that can keep growing. Oscar Mayer and Lunchables, meanwhile, are examples of brands that are ready to be turned around, he said.(Adds executives affiliated with 3G in third paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Deena Shanker in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Sally Bakewell at firstname.lastname@example.org, Jonathan Roeder, Lisa WolfsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Unilever NV has made a great deal of “instilling purpose” into its products, trying to flag up the social and environmental credentials of things from Dove shower gel to Magnum ice cream to appeal to millennial consumers. It doesn’t seem to be doing much for its sales.The Anglo-Dutch company surprised the stock market on Tuesday, warning that revenue growth this year would be below its 3% to 5% range. And it won’t bounce back quickly. Unilever forecasts sales increases will be in the lower half of its target range in 2020, with most progress coming in the second half.The company said it was suffering from an economic slowdown in south Asia, particularly India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and difficult trading conditions in west Africa. Meanwhile, its big-selling north American products such as ice cream and hair care are still recovering from a sluggish period, while competition is fierce in parts of Europe.Yet Unilever must take some of the blame for its own predicament. Its rival Nestle SA has managed steady sales growth, while pulling off some canny acquisitions and disposals.After a failed takeover approach from Kraft Heinz Co. back in 2017, Unilever set the goal of lifting its operating margin from 16% to 20% by 2020. Alan Jope, the chief executive officer, could have ditched this target when he took the reins at the start of this year to give himself more firepower to invest. But it seems he’s sticking with it: The company said on Tuesday that the goal wouldn’t be affected by the sales slowdown. While Unilever insists it’s spending enough on research and development and marketing, Jope may have to back his biggest brands with more funds to make sure they’re competitive. That would have to come at the expense of margins. He also needs to decide in which categories Unilever wants to compete, and reshape its sprawling portfolio accordingly. It’s admirable that the company generates close to 60% of its sales in emerging markets, and operates in popular areas such as beauty and personal care. Unfortunately, it is also over-exposed to more sluggish food ranges such as tea and dressings.Jope could do worse than learn from Nestle’s CEO Mark Schneider. The latter has been quick to prune unwanted categories, recently selling its U.S. ice cream business to a joint venture between itself and private equity. Nestle has also been buying in its preferred product areas, such as coffee.Unilever, meanwhile, has been less bold, undertaking a plethora of small acquisitions — from fake meat to fancy laundry products. The group generated only about 0.5 percentage points of growth from its acquisitions and disposals in the first half of the financial year; Jope says he’ll slow the pace of bolt-on deals and step up disposals.If he doesn’t hurry, someone else might attempt to do some portfolio tidying for him. Kraft Heinz isn’t in a position to make another approach. But an activist investor may be tempted. Selling Unilever’s foods and refreshments business for cash is a possibility, although a demerger might be complicated by Unilever’s dual British and Dutch structure.The food unit could have an enterprise value of 55 billion euros ($61 billion), according to UBS analysts. So offloading it would generate proceeds to invest in higher growth products, while allowing the return of cash to investors. On a price-to-earnings basis, Nestle’s premium over Unilever is widening. An aggressive investor may spot a corporate purpose of their own.To contact the author of this story: Andrea Felsted at email@example.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: James Boxell at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Andrea Felsted is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering the consumer and retail industries.
