Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), in response to speculation about changes to its R&D and Engineering teams, stated: “Kevin Sullivan, formerly Keurig’s Chief Technology Officer, remains with the company and has no plans to leave. Over the past 15 months, Kevin and Brian Kelley, Keurig’s President and CEO, have been working closely together to shift Kevin’s responsibilities at his request. Kevin will now focus exclusively on critical technology initiatives for the company. In April 2015, following a comprehensive search to find the best candidate to serve as Keurig’s Chief Technology Officer, Mark Choe assumed the position, joining Keurig from Whirlpool Corporation (WHR). Since Mark began in his role, he and Kevin have been working closely together to ensure a seamless transition. There has been no shake-up in our R&D division.”

07:43 EDTNSRGYMead Johnson pushing for changes to WIC program, WSJ reports
The law authorizing the $6B per year WIC program providing food vouchers to women who are pregnant or have young children is up for renewal this year and formula makers, led by top U.S. maker Mead Johnson (MJN), are pushing for change, said The Wall Street Journal. Growth in the program has made it a money-losing venture for baby formula makers who essentially make no profit off formula sold to states as part of the program and Mead Johnson is pushing for changing eligibility requirements, thereby limiting or even shrinking the pool of recipients, the report noted. Other U.S. infant formula makers include Abbott (ABT) and Nestle (NSRGY). Reference Link
