International: Nestle buys stake in Haagen-Dazs

Nestle USA, Glendale, Calif., paid $641 million to buy General Mills' 50% stake in Ice Cream Partners USA, the joint venture struck in 1999 to combine Nestle's novelty ice cream business with Pillsbury's Haagen-Dazs frozen desserts.

The new agreement, which gives Nestle a 99-year license for use of the Haagen-Dazs brand in the U.S. and Canada, was triggered by General Mills' recently completed acquisition of Pillsbury.

Ice Cream Partners USA had sales of roughly $700 million in 2000, according to Nestle.
