Small bakery manufacturers at the show were upbeat amid a backdrop of increasing consumer awareness of food origins and a retailing drive to ’think local’.However, The Heatherslaw Bakery doesn’t talk about ’food miles’; ’food metres’ is closer to the truth. This top-end cake and biscuit bakery stands on the same site as a water-powered mill among the fields where the wheat is grown in Northumberland. MD Colin Smurthwaite claimed this was proving a great selling point. “The story we try to convey is the location, and that everything is handmade to traditional recipes,” he said of the 120 products, which range from four to six months’ shelf life, including a Christmas range with national distribution.The one-year-old Heavenly Cakes was hoping to expose its new branding to distributors. Having formerly helmed a catering firm, the owners switched to baking cakes when they became frustrated at the quality of products they were buying in. The firm now makes 20 lines of traybakes, supplying the likes of London Zoo. “We avoid artificial flavourings, bindings and colours as much as possible and stick to real ingredients, such as real egg and Belgian chocolate,” said co-owner Nigel Green.Ian Craig, MD of Beckleberry’s, which supplies ice cream and speciality patisserie to the hotel and restaurant market, said he was promoting its use of real ingredients: “We work from first principles; we make our own pastry, frangipane, mousses and purées – we use real strawberries rather than what some ingredients suppliers think is the taste of a strawberry!” The seven-day life baked products are deli-vered chilled, while the bulk of the 1,000-strong range are frozen; 40% of products are bespoke. It deli-vers direct to the north of England, while the firm is still joining the dots on its UK-wide distribution.Farmer/miller Gilchesters Orga-nics started working with a wholesaler last month and was drumming up interest in the south for its spelt and rye speciality flours. “Getting bakers to change their habits is a very difficult process,” said owner Andrew Wilkinson. “They have established grists of grain and set modes of production. So for us to introduce speciality stoneground grains, with different baking characteristics, has been hard work. But once bakers try the flours and realise there’s something special in the flavours of these old varieties, it helps us to help them develop new ranges of speciality breads.”Pullins Bakers was launching branded mini bar flapjacks, shortbreads and tiffins, with contemporary-looking cardboard sleeves for coffee shops, travel, retail and foodservice. “We’re also introdu-cing a Family Breads range of five Great Taste Award-winning breads, which have been developed from recipes dating from 1925,” said marketing executive Tristan Hunt.Meanwhile, bake-off specialist Mantinga was showcasing the only product to win a Great Taste Award in the new bake-off category this year – a seeded wholemeal loaf. “To us, that has been a great achievement – we’re the only people, ever, to win a gold in bake-off!” said delighted MD Steven Mackintosh. Mantinga also launched a sun-dried tomato loaf, Mediterranean green olive bread, peperonici and fougasse, with ham and walnuts.

I’m not going to pretend that 2018 has been an easy year. In Scotland and across the UK, the past 12 months have brought home the difficulties of leaving the EU. Brexit has amplified divisions – between political parties, within political parties and outside politics too. The people I meet in Scotland simply want Brexit sorted. I understand that. I agree with them that we need to move on to the many other things that matter to us in our daily lives. For that to happen, 2019 must be a year of compromise and pragmatism. It must be a year when we set aside divisions and work together for the good of the country. Even after a tough 2018, I’m confident that can happen. We can leave the EU, respecting the result of the 2016 referendum and the votes of 17.4 million people across the UK, and we can do so in a way that protects jobs, supports business and allows us all to get on with our lives. The Prime Minister has negotiated a deal with the other EU member states that delivers on all of that. We can leave in an orderly way, with a transition period that will allow us to finalise our future arrangements with the EU, wave goodbye to the despised Common Fisheries Policy and begin to strengthen our trading relationships with the rest of the world. But we will all need to summon the spirit of compromise. As we enter the final three months before we leave the EU, the time has passed for politicians seeking to use Brexit to bring about a General Election or an unwanted second independence referendum. The last thing we need, the last thing the country needs, is more division. Instead, we should be the crossing the ‘t’ and dotting the ‘i’ of Brexit, then moving onto focus on other issues. Scotland’s economic performance continues to lag behind that of the UK as a whole. Both Scotland’s governments must work together to address the challenges we face. That’s why, in 2019, my priorities will be jobs and prosperity in Scotland. We will soon have new growth deals covering Ayrshire, Borderlands and Moray, on top of the more than £1 billion the UK Government has already committed to economic regeneration in and around Scotland’s seven cities. And like everyone else in Scotland, I want to see the Scottish Government getting to grips with our struggling NHS, our under-performing schools and our woeful rail network. What I do not want is to see Nicola Sturgeon expending all her energy trying to use Brexit to campaign for a second independence referendum. That issue was settled decisively in 2014. So I say, let’s work together. In 2019, let’s finish the job of leaving the EU and refocus so we can make real progress on the things that matter to us all. I know we can do it. Speaking just ahead of the turn of the year [31 December 2018], Mr Mundell said:

The project, which began in May and ends November 15, is to develop the comprehensive framework for the rapid exchange system for dangerous products, a computerised system to track notifications, and a training programme for all participating nations.The consultant said the goal is to create a system that all users are able to work with immediately and by which information can be exchanged quickly between authorities. It covers all non-food products excluding industrial products, consumer services, drugs and tobacco. In November, one person from each member state will participate in a train-the-trainers programme to be able to pass on knowledge of the system to colleagues.The Caribbean model, being called CARREX – CARICOM Rapid Exchange system — is based on the European Rapid Exchange system (RAPEX) which has been in use for more than 30 years.The CARREX Secretariat will function as the central node with 15 national contact points, and the OECS Secretariat as an associated contact point. The 15 national networks will be made up of members from public administration bodies and institutions, economic operators and individual consumers and consumer organisations.According to Sidiropoulos, a product is classified as dangerous when you find out that although it has been manufactured and achieved certification it is proven to cause health or safety problems for consumers.by Nerissa GoldenCaribbean News Now

Switzerland County, In. — Contractors replacing two bridges for the Indiana Department of Transportation on State Road 56 in Switzerland County will begin operations in mid-September.Milestone, INDOT’s contractor for the $3,695,455 project near Lamb, plans to clear the S.R. 56 Tucker Run site during the second week of September. Once cleared, temporary signals will be installed before actual construction—replacing one-half the bridge at a time—starts on or after October 1. Single-lane traffic flow will be controlled by the temporary signals.The new S.R. 56 Tucker Run bridge will be a 3-span concrete bulb-T structure measuring 200 feet in length with almost 33 feet of clear roadway side-to-side.A second S.R. 56 bridge located less than a mile west of the Tucker Run structure will be removed and replaced after the first of the year. The S.R. 56 Green Valley Creek bridge is a single-span I-beam structure measuring 68 feet in length and 30 feet side-to-side. Clearing should begin this October, followed by utility relocations. Actual construction activities are slated to start in January.Approximately 1000 feet of new pavement will be put in place to realign S.R. 56 north of the current Green Valley Creek structure. This will allow continuous free-flow traffic at the site until pavement tie-ins occur. At that time, a 14-day closure will be imposed to complete the connection.S.R. 56’s traffic count is 2,257 vehicles per day.
Monaco was held to a disappointing 2-2 draw at the Stade Louis II by Stade Reims on Sunday, with Onyekuru hauled off after just 45 minutes. After replacing him with Sofian Diop, Kovac said, Onyekuru remains part of his plans going forward and he’s happy to have him in the squad. “Henry Onyekuru is an important player in the squad, having only been with us for two weeks. As you have seen, Sofiane Diop made a good appearance off the bench. I’m happy with both players,” Kovac told a news conference after the game. Monaco boss Niko Kovac believes Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru will play an important role for the French Ligue 1 campaigners this season. Onyekuru joined the club last season from Everton, but he spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Turkish outfit Galatasaray. Kovac however recalled the player and made it clear, he’s banking on him for the new French Ligue one season, which kicked off last weekend.
