Chiquita says Fyffes grants waiver to talk with Cutrale, Safra
Sept 8 (Reuters) - Banana producer Chiquita Brands International Inc said Fyffes Plc has granted a waiver to engage in discussions with juice maker Cutrale and investment firm Safra Group regarding their $611 million takeover bid.
Chiquita said it has sent a letter to the two firms, saying it was willing to hear another offer.
The U.S. fruit firm had last month rejected Cutrale and Safra's bid in favor of a merger with Ireland's Fyffes. (Reporting by Ramkumar Iyer in Bangalore; Editing by Sriraj Kalluvila)
