Carlsberg is on the hunt for acquisitions so it can get stronger in the UK, chief executive Nils Anderson told The Mail on Sunday. His comment came in the wake of speculation that Carlsberg could find itself on the receiving end of a bid from Scottish & Newcastle (S&N) or even quit Britain entirely. He was quoted in the newspaper as saying: “People have got it wrong if they think our position is vulnerable or that we would be willing to concede any kind of control…to S&N…we are in a position to be a buyer”.
