ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS. N.J. -Unilever NV, the world's second-largest food company, has offered to buy Bestfoods for $18.3 billion in cash, an unsolicited bid that the U.S. food company rejected as inadequate. Bestfoods, maker of Hellmann's dressings and Skippy peanut butter, said Unilever offered $66 a share yesterday and in April bid $61 to $64. Unilever, a British-Dutch company that makes Lipton teas and Q-Tip swabs, couldn't be reached for comment. Unilever has been buying well-known brands it can market world-wide, spending $2.6 billion last month for SlimFast diet foods and Ben & Jerry's ice creams.

Corn prices rose Tuesday by 10 cents a bushel, the Board of Trade's daily limit on price swings. But commodities prices dropped yesterday after a new six- to 10-day forecast by the National Weather Service predicted cooler, wetter weather in areas such as Illinois and Iowa that are key producers of corn and soybeans.

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands - Unilever, the Anglo-Dutch maker of Lipton tea and Dove skin-care products, will slash 8,000 jobs and close more than 30 factories after acquiring rival Bestfoods for $24.3 billion last year. The cuts are on top of the 25,000 staff reductions over five years the Dutch-British company had announced previously, said Michael Haines, a spokesman. Unilever indicated yesterday that first-quarter net income before one-time items fell 53 percent after acquisitions raised borrowing costs.
