27. Heinz bought by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway for $28bn

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21461779

US billionaire Warren Buffett is to buy food giant Heinz in a deal worth $28bn (£18bn).

Mr Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway company is part of a consortium of investors who will take over the food company, famous for its ketchup and baked beans.

In a statement, Heinz called the deal "historic", and the largest ever in the food industry.

The takeover has been approved by the company's board, but still needs to be voted on by shareholders.
