Cakes and bread drive sales at Premier Foods

first_imgPremier Foods said it expected to hit its 2008 profit targets despite a decline in branded sales in the second half of 2007.Christmas trading was satisfactory across the group and was led by the cakes and customer partnerships businesses, said the company.The main cost pressure over the year came from increases in the price of wheat. Premier said bread price rises and cost savings had helped to offset the effect of more expensive raw materials. Profitability had also been enhanced by the progress of the rationalisation plan with two factory closures in 2007 and seven more planned in 2008-2009. Second half sales were up 3%, while sales over the full year should be 1.6% higher.The cakes and bread bakeries divisions were the best performers with sales gains of 7% and 6% respectively. By contrast branded business fell by 8%.Premier Foods CEO, Robert Schofield, said: “We foresaw raw material and packaging inflation led by wheat but also affecting dairy, fruits and vegetables. Whilst these additional costs have had an impact in the second half of 2007 we have recovered a large proportion of these cost increases through pricing and cost savings.”last_img read more

Statement to Parliament: Greenhouse gases from international shipping

first_imgThe UK was at the forefront of a coalition of high ambition countries working with other member states, industry and non-governmental organisations to agree ambitious quantified emission reduction targets for the sector.Countries will now, through the IMO, commence work on implementing the strategy. The UK, through the Department for Transport will continue to work with other IMO member states, industry and Civil Society to establish what practical and technical steps need to be taken to deliver the emission reduction targets. A revised version of the strategy is due to be adopted in 2023. On 13 April 2018 the International Maritime Organization (IMO) agreed a comprehensive strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from international shipping. The United Kingdom, led by the Department for Transport, played a leading role in the negotiations, pushing for an ambitious and credible outcome that would enable shipping to play its part in meeting the Paris Agreement temperature goals.The strategy is a major milestone for the shipping industry, which is now the first global sector to have set an absolute emissions reduction target.The strategy includes: a commitment to phase out GHGs from international shipping as soon as possible during this century a target of at least 50% reduction, and an aim for 100% reduction, in total GHG emissions from shipping by 2050 a target of at least a 40% improvement in carbon intensity of ships by 2030, pursuing efforts towards 70% in 2050 a list of possible short-, mid- and long term emission reduction measures with a commitment to develop a work-plan for implementation to deliver emission reductions before 2023last_img read more

Making the Journey to Hybrid Cloud

first_imgAs a handy homeowner, it’s often tempting to pick up a hammer on the weekend and join in on the time-honored tradition of “Do-It-Yourself.” Whether it’s adding a deck, building out the basement for entertaining, or landscaping the yard, there is an appeal of applying your skills to a project to gain a sense of accomplishment and save money at the same time.With every undertaking comes the often-overlooked addition of risk.  Like many projects started with the best intentions (in IT and at home), we risk finding ourselves behind schedule, over budget and with an unhappy internal customer. In more extreme cases, we may have unintentionally violated local regulations or building code, impacting us financially or worse.  Through these experiences, we learn to regulate our inner “handyman,” and consider investing in outside expertise.  Expert help offers us the piece of mind that the outcome (and the cost) will be predictable, while our risk of failure is greatly reduced.Recently in a call with analysts, EMC shared an example of a global pharmaceutical company with a goal to build a highly flexible, low-cost way to deliver Infrastructure as a Service on demand to its business units and developers. Even though the company had the internal skills to achieve their goal, EMC provided a Hybrid Cloud solution to meet the company’s goals while staying cost-effective and within the required timeframe: a predictable outcome.The company’s Hybrid Cloud solution leverages its investment in their EMC VMware Vblock-based private cloud managed by EMC, while enabling seamless consumption of capacity from VMware’s vCloud Air public cloud services. For the business units and their developers, an application Self-Service Portal provides the company a single entry point to estimate, request, manage, and track the fulfillment of requests.  This portal is then integrated back into the company’s existing and internally managed tools, further streamlining request through fulfillment.Upon completion of delivering the solution, some 2,000 virtual machines will be migrated from the company’s on-premises private cloud to VMware’s vCloud Air public cloud service, to be followed by additional non-regulated production workloads going forward. The end result: an engineered and proven cost-effective Hybrid Cloud solution that reduces risk and is managed and fully automated and supported by EMC.As your organization makes the journey into Hybrid Cloud, challenge yourself to answer this question: “Do I really want to be in the integration engineering business maintaining versions and upgrade re-engineering, or could I be more successful by having EMC do it for me in about a week?”Once you dig in, you might surprise yourself.last_img read more

SIT Receives $50,000 Anonymous Gift for Scholarship for Women

first_imgSIT Receives $50,000 Anonymous Gift for Scholarship for WomenScholarship Honors Dr. Karen BlanchardBRATTLEBORO — An anonymous donor recently gave $50,000 to the School for International Training (SIT) to endow a new scholarship in honor of SIT Associate Professor Karen Blanchard. The Karen Stromgren Blanchard Scholarship for Women is designated for women who wish to undertake graduate or professional development work in SITs intercultural leadership program. The school offers a broad array of studies in nonprofit leadership and management, ranging from sustainable development to conflict transformation and international education.Blanchard, who earned her Ph.D. at the California Institute of Integral Studies, has taught at SIT since 1988. “It’s a very kind, sweet, humbling gift,” said Blanchard, “and it will be a great help to deserving women who want to participate in our programs.” Blanchard, who will be involved in the selection of scholarship recipients, said that women following in the footsteps of recent Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai will be top candidates. Maathai, an environmentalist and advocate for social change, is also a trustee of World Learning, SIT’s parent organization. Long before Wangari received the Nobel Prize, she was a grassroots activist who believed that change was possible, Blanchard said.”This gift is a wonderful testament to the impact Karen Blanchard is making on so many students who come to SIT for the unique education the school provides,” said Carol Bellamy, former director of UNICEF and new president of World Learning and SIT. “The generosity of this anonymous donor guarantees that Karen’s commitment to making a difference in the world will be realized for many years to come.For more information contact Ellen A.
