North America's biggest food maker Kraft Foods has approached the consortium of shareholders that owns Britain's United Biscuits with a buy-out plan, British paper The Business​ said on Sunday, revealed Reuters.

It said the plan would value the snack company, bought out in 2000 by a group of firms backed by French food giant Danone, at up to £2.4 billion (€3.8 billion).

United Biscuits' owners have already had discussions with advisers over a potential flotation of the group, and the Kraft plan is now being considered as an alternative to a relisting in London, the paper said.

Kraft already owns some 25 per cent of United Biscuits after it took over rival Nabisco, The Business​ added.
