Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group Co., one of China’s largest dairy businesses, has been given more time to come up with a public offer for Pakistan’s Fauji Foods.

Yili first disclosed its interest in acquiring the Pakistan dairy firm Fauji Foods, a subsidiary of Fauji Fertilizer Bin Qasim Ltd., to the Shanghai Stock Exchange in July. At the time, Yili was seeking to buy a 51% stake in the company, which markets a range of dairy and juice products under the brand name Nurpur.
