Suppliers target south-east Asia export opportunities

first_imgTen food and drink manufacturers including crackers and biscuits supplier Rakusen’s have taken part in a trade mission to Singapore.With Singapore already importing £4.7bn-worth of consumer-orientated food in 2017, the week-long mission was designed to build relationships and open up further opportunities.Businesses that took part in the trip were: Burt’s Snacks, Crème d’Or, Eat Natural, Franklin & Sons, Millennium Group, Paramount, Rakusen’s, Somerdale, Taylors of Harrogate and Tiptree.The businesses met some of the country’s largest supermarket chains and attended the Food & Hotel Asia Tradeshow during the trip, which was organised by Santander Corporate & Commercial, Singapore bank UOB, British Chamber of Commerce Singapore and the Department of International Trade.Santander said meeting the needs of a diverse population and workforce meant a large share of Singapore’s food must be imported. It added that this was an opportunity for UK firms to tap into a desire for high-quality traditional British produce.“Singapore and the wider south-east Asia market represents an excellent opportunity for dynamic UK firms to meet the high demand for quality food and drink produce,” said Richard Cuda, head of strategic alliances at Santander Corporate & Commercial.Established in 1900 as a supplier of kosher foods to the Jewish community, Rakusen’s products now include a wide range of crackers and biscuits.last_img read more

Life insurance goes digital

Life insurance goes digital

first_img continue reading » A seismic shift has occurred since life insurance became viable over two centuries ago. Not so much in its core purpose, protecting an individual’s assets and loved ones, but in an individual’s expectations of application and delivery. Similar to financial services, the insurance industry is working to up its game to match the demand for digital.“Just like Amazon, today’s consumer expects digital ease and convenience when buying life insurance,” explains Tom Kazar, group vice president/sales and business development for CUES Supplier member Franklin Madison, Franklin, Tennessee. “And the industry has spent a lot of energy improving the customer experience, most notably, digitizing the process, the approval and the delivery.”While some things haven’t changed, such as the desire for a fully underwritten policy and the choice of coverage amount and lengths, Kazar notes that evolving consumer expectations and the promise of online enrollment are disrupting the industry.
