Daesang Corporation, a major producer of consumer foods and additives in South Korea, has been in talks to buy a stake in Duc Viet Food JSC, news website VnExpress reported Thursday, quoting an unnamed source from the Vietnamese company. The source did not reveal how much stake Daesang will buy, but since last month international and local media have quoted Korean newswires as saying that it will buy 13 million shares, or a 99.99 percent stake, at 37.52 billion won (US$33 million).
