The sale of half of No. 2 yogurt maker Yoplait formally gets under way next week - with French P-E firm PAI Partners eager to unload that stake for €1.5B to bidders like General Mills (GIS), Nestle (NSRGY.PK) and Groupe Lactalis - but the move could be complicated by the owner of the other half, French dairy co-op Sodiaal. The French government has intervened in such sales before, and might again.
