Hummus 'crisis' sheds light on secret world of mass food production

After a brief recall, tubs are back on shelves. But have retailers learned a lesson about the wisdom of diversifying their supply chain? Inside a cluster of unremarkable industrial units off the A40 in west London is the epicentre of the 2017 hummus crisis. The buildings belong to Bakkavor, the international food manufacturer behind the mass withdrawal of the product from British supermarket shelves after customers complained of a metallic taste.These units off the Hanger Lane gyratory system – among 30 facilities on 19 different UK sites – manufacture hummus and other dips on an industrial scale for supermarket giants including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, the Co-op, Asda and Morrisons, who sell them under their own brands.

Weird weather means wonky asparagus – at lower prices

This year’s crop has grown into odd shapes, prompting Morrisons to sell one of the UK’s most expensive vegetables cheaplyA wonky version of one of the UK’s most expensive vegetables, asparagus, has gone on sale this week for just £1 at a major supermarket chain, in a drive to stop the crop – misshapen as a result of this spring’s fluctuating temperatures – from being wasted. A warm early spring has encouraged asparagus shoots to push up early this year. As shoots track the sun around the sky – and early spring sun levels are low - some of the crop has grown into an uncharacteristic crooked shape. Changeable temperatures have also led to shorter and longer spears. Continue reading...

Alan Johnson: ‘Labour should be willing to work with other parties, through a coalition if necessary’

Alan Johnson is livid at Theresa May for calling a snap election, enraged at Corbyn for supporting it, and angry that, as he leaves politics, New Labour’s progressive record is being denigrated. Simon Hattenstone listensAlan Johnson has started dismantling his office. There are piles of books on his desk – music biographies, politics, novels, all sorts. “Take any of them,” he says. “They’re up for grabs.” Soon after Theresa May announced the snap general election this week, the former postman turned trade union leader turned cabinet minister said he was standing down after 20 years in parliament.The surprise is that it’s only been 20 years. He might have been closing in on 50 when he became an MP, but his subsequent rise was meteoric – work and pensions secretary, trade and industry secretary, education secretary, health secretary, home secretary – all within seven years. Johnson, who left school at 15 to stack shelves for Tesco, has also established himself as a popular TV pundit and prolific memoirist. He is known for his equanimity. And already he’s looking forward to a new life dedicated to writing. But at the same time, he’s fuming about this election – the timing, the chaos it’s wreaked, Tory broken promises, his own party’s unreadiness for office; you name it, he’s angry about it. Continue reading...

United Airlines shows why it's time to deplane corporate-speak

The US airline’s overbooking PR gaffe was an extreme one. But other firms such as Tesco are all-too prone to buzzwords that baffle both staff and customersUnited Airlines has been compared to Gerald Ratner after its extraordinary reaction to a passenger on one of its planes being dragged away with a bloodied face by security guards.Ratner, as a reminder, is responsible for probably the most famous PR gaffe of all time. He was chairman of the high street jewellery firm Ratners when during a speech in 1991 he described one of his products as “total crap”, saying that earrings sold by the business were “cheaper than an M&S prawn sandwich but probably wouldn’t last as long”. After the speech the company nearly collapsed, and he was fired less than two years later. Continue reading...

Мать привередливой девочки боится за её жизнь из-за остановки продаж картошки

В Великобритании мама очень привередливой в еде пятилетней девочки переживает за жизнь своего ребёнка из-за снятия с продажи картошки, которую любит её дочь. Как сообщает издание Mirror, 5-летняя Раби Пасси очень избирательна в выборе еды. Так, она ест только картошку в виде букв алфавита, и без неё она не будет есть наггетсы из курицы или индейки. Со слов её мамы Николы, из продажи в Tesco пропала та самая любимая картошка девочки. Теперь женщина переживает, что её дочь просто умрёт от голода, так как сейчас у них осталось всего четыре пачки с такой картошкой.

Основные фондовые индексы Европы растут

Европейские рынки повысились во время утренних торгов в среду, несмотря на обеспокоенность инвесторов в связи с напряженным ритмом геополитических новостей, который подпитывал покупку активов- убежищ, таких как золото. Общеевропейский индекс Stoxx 600 вырос на 0,57 процента, при этом почти все сектора и крупные биржи торгуются на положительной территории. В среду данные о сильных доходах были наиболее успешными в секторе автопроизводителей. Daimler превзошла более высокую, чем ожидалось, прибыль в первом квартале. Прибыль до вычета процентов и налогов (EBIT) выросла на 87% по сравнению с аналогичным периодом прошлого года. Акции немецкого автопроизводителя подскочили на новостях на 1,3 процента. Норвежская химическая компания Yara International поднялась на вершину европейского индекса после того, как аналитики Goldman Sachs повысили рекомендацию по акциям с «нейтрального» до «покупать» в среду. Ее акции выросли более чем на 4 процента в середине утренних сделок. Крупнейший розничный торговец Британии Tesco превзошел прогнозы по прибыли за весь год, так как его восстановление, похоже, набирало обороты. Тем не менее, акции опустились до нижней границы индекса, на 4 процента, на деталях регламентационного штрафа, который урезал прибыль у ритейлера в США. Dialog Semiconductor понес большие потери с предыдущей сессии в среду. Аналитики немецкого частного банка Bankhaus Lampe предупредили, что Apple может отодвинуть бизнес от фирмы. Его акции снизились еще на 3,6 процента в середине утренних сделок. Канцлер Германии Ангела Меркель готова созвать заседание своего кабинета в среду, чтобы обсудить Брекзит, а также руководящие принципы переговоров ЕС перед специальным саммитом 29 апреля. Во Франции кандидат в президенты от центристов Эммануил Макрон проведет встречу в юго-западном городе По менее чем за две недели до первого раунда двухэтапного избирательного процесса. Макрон будет присутствовать вместе с трехкратным кандидатом в президенты Франсуа Байру, ключевым сторонником бывшего министра экономики. Государственный секретарь США Рекс Тиллерсон отправляется в Москву в среду, где встретится со своим российским коллегой Сергеем Лавровым для обсуждения Украины, борьбы с терроризмом, двусторонних отношений и других вопросов, в том числе Корейского полуострова и Сирии. Тем временем Совет Безопасности ООН проведет совещание по вопросу о продолжающемся сирийском конфликте.
