Most or all of the nutritionals, ingredients and chemicals company could be on the selling block, parent company Henkel Group announces Nov. 13. Dusseldorf, Germany-based Henkel split its chemical products business off to form Cognis earlier this year intending to seek a minority partner, but now says it has been unable to secure an advantageous deal (1"The Tan Sheet" Feb. 14, In Brief). Henkel wants to divert resources from Cognis - which accounts for 23% of the firm's worldwide business - to focus on consumer products.
