Yoplait Light targets sweetener
NEW YORK — The maker of Yoplait Light is hoping a sweetener change can help bring back customers. General Mills Inc. said Wednesday it plans to remove aspartame from its popular reduced-calorie yogurt in favor of another artificial sweetener, sucralose. Aspartame is better known by the brand names NutraSweet and Equal, while sucralose is the sweetener used in Splenda. Although sucralose is also an artificial sweetener, General Mills CEO Ken Powell said it has greater acceptance among consumers. The change comes as General Mills struggles to fix its Yoplait business, which has been upended by the popularity of Greek yogurt and the move toward ingredients people feel are natural.
GoPro prepares for Wall Street
NEW YORK — GoPro has climbed mountaintops and dived to ocean bottoms. Now it’s headed somewhere only slightly tamer: Wall Street. The maker of wearable sports cameras is expected to sell its shares publicly for the first time and begin trading on the Nasdaq stock market Thursday. The company is entering a busy time for initial public offerings, with seven companies expected to make their debuts the same day. GoPro’s cameras have created a new market, selling to those who want to record and share their experience jumping out of a plane or riding a skateboard. GoPro hopes to raise more than $400 million. The stock will trade on the Nasdaq stock exchange under “GPRO.”
