S.Africa's Taste Holdings plans to exit food business, sells Starbucks

JOHANNESBURG, Nov 1 (Reuters) - South Africa’s Taste Holdings said on Friday it had sold its Starbucks business for 7 million rand ($464,200) and was also considering selling others in its food business, including Domino’s Pizza, as part of a new plan to become a luxury retail group.
