UniLever hikes U.K. prices for products, begins standoff with Tesco, WSJ says

UniLever (UL) is raising U.K. prices for many of its products, asking top grocery retailers in Britain for price hikes of 10% on average, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter. Such a request started an unusual public standoff with Tesco (TSCDY), the report notes. Unilever said that rising commodity costs in dollars are to blame for the price hikes, the report says. Tesco began removing Unilever products from its website as it refused to accept higher prices, the report adds. Reference Link

The firm recommends buying the stock ahead of the company's results.
