Cadbury-Schweppes could complete its acquisition of Orangina from Pernod Ricard within the next few weeks.

Patrick Ricard, chairman of Pernod Ricard told AFX News Ltd that he hopes to sell the Orangina-Pampryl non-alcoholic drinks brand in the coming weeks to Cadbury-Schweppes PLC.

No financial details were disclosed, but the AFX report claims that CEO Jacques Pfister said Cadbury-Schweppes is an excellent candidate to acquire the brand.
