Bega Cheese has increased its stake in Capilano Honey to 8.4 per cent, after having secured an initial shareholding in the week ending 31 August. Capilano is currently the subject of a takeover bid from private equity groups Wattle Hill and ROC Partners, whose $20.06 per share offer values Capilano at more than $190 million. Bega executive chairman Barry Irwin states he is not perturbed by reports that Capilano may unknowingly be selling "fake honey". Irwin says Bega has not made any decisions about making a bid for Capilano itself.
