REFILE-Danisco chairman declines to name other bidders, (DCO), (NYSE: DD)

Danish food ingredients and enzymes maker Danisco's (DCO.CO) chairman declined on Monday to identify other bidders who he said had been interested in buying Danisco in addition to U.S. chemicals group DuPont (DD.N). DuPont late on Sunday announced a friendly $5.8 billion cash offer to acquire Danisco. "We have had several bids," Danisco chairman Jorgen Tandrup told a news conference, but he declined to say how many or to identify the rival bidders.
