Jacksons and Warburtons start Co-op own label bread contract

Jacksons and Warburtons start Co-op own label bread contract

first_imgSource: Co-opJacksons and Warburtons have kicked off their own-label bread contract with the Co-op.Under the deal, Jacksons will bake Co-op’s bread which is distributed daily across the UK through the Warburtons logistics network.Fourteen products are now made by the Hull-based bakery including a new 800g toastie loaf, Co-op’s Honest Value range and, a white & bran loaf containing bran and wheatgerm (pictured).The pair take over from former supplier Allied Bakeries which failed to agree commercial terms with the retailer on a contract renewal last summer.In its announcement at the time, parent company Associated British Foods described Co-op as “one of its more challenging accounts in terms of cost to serve”, with deliveries to 3,750 stores widespread across the UK. A “lengthy notice period” was given by Co-op to aid Allied in the transition.Owen Elliott, chief operating officer of Jacksons, which was established in 1851, described the new deal as a “brilliant opportunity”.“The William Jackson Food Group, which owns Jacksons, has a long history with Co-op and is closely aligned in terms of quality and values – it’s great to be able to build on this relationship even further,” he said.“A huge amount of work has gone into developing recipes for the new Co-op loaves, getting the factory ready for the additional business and setting up a logistics model to work with Warburtons.”Colin Bebbington, Warburtons sales director, said: “This partnership with Co-op will maximise our industry-leading distribution network to deliver freshly baked bakery products to its stores across the country. We are proud to be part of this partnership and are looking forward to working together with Jacksons and the Co-op for the long term.”Sinead Bell, Co-op’s director of chilled food and bakery added: “This is an exciting development with all the ‘ingredients’ to bake in our shared values – Co-op is committed to meeting the need for great quality, fresh, delicious bread and bakery products, conveniently.”last_img read more

Popular social calendar app Toga shuts down

Popular social calendar app Toga shuts down

first_imgThe social calendar app, Toga, abruptly shut down in May after a failed acquisition process. Marshall alumnus Noah Johnson co-founded the app in 2015. (Photo courtesy of Noah Johnson)Upon returning to USC this fall, upperclassmen may have noticed that Toga, a social calendar app, was missing.Toga, which launched in 2015, was an app that displayed events, ranging from house parties to concerts at Shrine Auditorium, happening on or near USC’s campus.Toga’s sudden disappearance was a source of mystery to students. A simple message appearing on the application and through emails announced its shutdown in May. “On May 15th, Toga will be shutting down. But … as one chapter closes, a new one opens!” the message read.Noah Johnson, a Toga co-founder and alumnus of the Marshall School of Business, explained that Toga shut down due to a failed acquisition. “The abruptness came about due to an acquisition process, where a larger company was going to acquire us, but in the 11th hour, [the acquisition] fell through,” Johnson said.Before the failed acquisition, Toga provided students with a shared platform on which all social events on or around campus were posted.Its shutdown disappointing for many students, including Isabella Smith, a senior majoring in industrial systems engineering. “It becomes a little more exclusive at USC when there’s not something that’s open to everyone to see where all the [events] are,” Smith said. While larger events were added by the Toga staff themselves, students had the ability to broadcast their personal functions to all of campus, almost as a form of advertising to the student population. This ensured larger turnouts to organizations and social events, such as fraternity-affiliated parties.“Back when I was a freshman, ultimately, it was difficult to find all of the events happening on campus,” Johnson said. “I built Toga to solve that [issue].” Toga’s initial development included multiple iterations of the application, with the initial launching solely at USC. As the app received funding, its reach expanded to over 38 campuses and thousands of users. The app itself was socially oriented, showing friends from connected social media accounts who were interested in the same events as the user. Toga also offered a unique experience which allowed the user to “peek” onto other campuses, giving an insight into many universities’ specific student cultures and their events.While many students may be disappointed by Toga’s shutdown, some students found that the app could be a nuisance because of how easily someone could post an event for the entire campus, even if they were not the function’s coordinator.“I lived in a pretty big house on the corner of Menlo [Avenue], and parties, which were private Facebook events, on two separate occasions, were put on Toga,” said Justin Rankin, a senior majoring in industrial systems engineering. “We ended up entertaining a large amount of people we did not know.” Rankin’s experience seems to be in the minority, with many upset by the app removal. “One of the biggest things [I see] when I look at the whole journey is ultimately perseverance, you learn from your mistakes and you keep building,” Johnson said.last_img read more

How SITA Director Vincent Kennedy developed leadership potential at LYIT

How SITA Director Vincent Kennedy developed leadership potential at LYIT

first_img‘This course changed the way I think’ – says SITA Senior Manager Vincent Kennedy after completing the Executive Master of Business in Innovation & Leadership at Letterkenny Institute of Technology.Vincent is the Director of Software Development at SITA in Letterkenny, and the company lead in Ireland.With a team of approx 130 people to manage, Vincent enrolled in the highly-regarded MBS at LYIT to gain specialist leadership knowledge. This two-year part-time programme is focused on equipping people in senior business roles with the skills to make an impact in their organisations and become champions for change. Participants are senior and middle managers from across a diverse range of organisations, multinational and indigenous SMEs, who put their studies into practice in their workplace through action learning.Some of the most valuable skills Vincent gained was how to understand other people’s motivations, he said: “Through the MBS course there are many skills that can be learned and developed. However, one of the areas that resonated with me most, is the area of Emotional Intelligence. Understanding the individuals and teams we work with, their expectations, needs and perspectives is important as a leader, especially in times of uncertainty.”Vincent Kennedy, (SITA) – Donegal ICT/FinTech Working Group Chairperson.Progression, innovative thinking and advancement are at the heart of the programme, which Vincent said was an eye-opening experience: “This course changed the way I think in many aspects of my working life. It has really helped me develop my business acumen and opened my mind to new ideas and techniques when leading teams.”Originally from Inver, Vincent now lives in Donegal Town with his wife and two young children. Balancing a busy work and family life with his studies was surprisingly easy thanks to the flexibility of the Masters course and the fact that Letterkenny isn’t a long journey away. “LYIT were very accommodating and supportive to me. In the end I found the learning experience throughout the MBS course actually helped me manage my workload better. LYIT showed great flexibility with timelines and other work challenges like business travel etc.,” Vincent said.LYIT Master of Business Innovation & LeadershipVincent found that the programme had many rewarding aspects, “but working closely together as a student group and supporting each other was very rewarding. I have made some really good friends through the MBS.”Since graduating, Vincent seized the opportunities his studies have presented and moved to a new role in SITA. For people looking to develop their own leadership potential, he said: “I believe the quality of the course is right up there with the best. From the module content, the guest speakers and the people you study with, the entire experience was excellent.”If you wish to apply for the Executive Master of Business in Innovation & Leadership please visit https://www.lyit.ie/CourseDetails/D401/LY_BINOL_M/Innovation&Leadership/ for further information.

SA colleges get $6.7m boost

SA colleges get $6.7m boost

first_imgEhlanzeni FET College is one 12 South African institutions to benefit from USAID funding. (Image: Ehlanzeni FET College) MEDIA CONTACTS Ranjeni MunusamyMedia and Communications head:Department of Higher Education and Training +27 12 465 5513 +27 82 898 6082RELATED ARTICLES • e-Cadre to boost service delivery • Ubuntu software for schools Bongani NkosiTwelve rural Further Education and Training (FET) facilities in South Africa have received a major cash injection from a US government agency to boost skills development and training.The US-South Africa Partnership for Skills Development, worth US$6.7-million (more than R50-million), was launched on 20 October 2009 at the Waterberg FET College in Mokopane, Limpopo province.The partners in the initiative are the US Agency for International Development (USAid), which is funding the programme, and South Africa’s Department of Higher Education and Training.The scheme aims to strengthen academic programmes, develop lecturers’ training skills and bolster student support services, not only in Limpopo, but at colleges in Mpumalanga and Northern Cape provinces as well.The Mpumalanga beneficiaries are the Ehlanzeni, Gert Sibande and Nkangala FET colleges. In Limpopo the Lephalale, Capricorn, Letaba, Sekhukhune, Mopani South East, Vhembe and Waterberg FET colleges will benefit, as will the Northern Cape Rural and Northern Cape Urban FET colleges.“I am happy that the partnership will support existing interventions being implemented at FET colleges; in particular student support services,” Higher Education and Training Minister Blade Nzimande said at the launch.“This will enhance student access, retention, throughput and linkages with sustainable economic opportunities. [It is] appropriate that a partnership of this nature is formed with FET colleges.”US exchange opportunitiesSupervised by the American Council on Education (ACE) and American Association of Community Colleges, the programme will also create partnerships with the private sector in South Africa and offer exchange opportunities with US colleges and universities.Some of the US academic partners are the Bronx Community College in New York; the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System; National Center on Education and the Economy, based in Washington DC; Springfield Technical Community College in Massachusetts; and YouthBuild International, which is based in Boston.“We are delighted to have this opportunity help build new bridges between the US and South African higher education communities,” ACE’s Madeleine Green said in a statement. “By doing so, [we will] help South Africa tap into lessons learned from US community colleges to expand the learning opportunities for disadvantaged youth.”The programme includes a labour market research component, which has been allocated $320 000 (more than R2-million). Nzimande applauded this element because it will “give colleges access to labour market data”.“In this way, training at colleges can be matched to demands of the marketplace,” he said.Some $1.7-million (about R12.6-million) has been set aside for a local HIV/Aids programme, which Nzimande hopes “will go a long way in liberating our youth and our country from the scourge of the pandemic”.Government’s FET driveThe US investment will go a long way in improving conditions at FET colleges, but the South African government is also working to boost these institutions. The country’s 50 colleges and 236 campuses “will be the primary site for skills development training”, President Jacob Zuma said in his State of the Nation address in June 2009.“To date government has invested R600-million [$80.3-million] in bursaries for FET college students in order to create access for the financially needy,” said Nzimande.“Government was aware that this investment was not enough and will work to improve it,” he said. “We are committed to ensuring that no young person is deprived of the opportunity for education or training merely because of a lack of money…”The FET colleges revitalisation project, which ran over three years and ended in March 2009, saw the government spending R1.9-billion ($25 422-million) on improving infrastructure, acquiring more equipment and developing a new curriculum, among others.FET institutions play a pivotal role in Mpumalanga and the Northern Cape, as universities are yet to be established there.last_img read more

YouTube labels statesponsored news as rules tighten

YouTube labels statesponsored news as rules tighten

YouTube on Friday began labeling news broadcasts that get government money as it vowed to be stricter about content at the globally popular online video-sharing service. YouTube said it is labeling news videos coming from state-funded organizations as part of an effort to improve transparency Explore further YouTube toughens rules regarding which videos get ads Citation: YouTube labels state-sponsored news as rules tighten (2018, February 3) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-02-youtube-state-sponsored-news-tighten.html © 2018 AFP A feature being rolled out in the US displays notices below videos uploaded by news broadcasters which receive government or public money, according to a blog post by YouTube News senior product manager Geoff Samek.”Our goal is to equip users with additional information to help them better understand the sources of news content that they choose to watch on YouTube,” Samek said”News is an important vertical for us and we want to be sure to get it right.”The move is likely to affect videos from services such as Russia-backed RT, which critics call a propaganda outlet for Moscow, but others as well.The blog post included a screen shot with a disclaimer about the US government-funded Radio Free Asia. The flagging may also apply to state-chartered news organizations such as the BBC and AFP, and US-based public broadcasters.Notices displayed with state-sponsored news broadcasts will include links to Wikipedia online encyclopedia so viewers can find out more about agencies behind the reports, according to Samek.The feature is nascent and will be refined based on feedback from users.YouTube made a series of changes last year intended to “better surface authoritative news,” according to Samek.YouTube priorities for this year include tightening and better enforcing rules at the service, according to chief executive Susan Wojcicki.”The same creativity and unpredictability that makes YouTube so rewarding can also lead to unfortunate events where we need to take a clear, informed, and principled stance,” Wojcicki said in an online post.”We realize we have a serious social responsibility to get these emerging policy issues right.”Solutions being worked on include enhanced software smarts and more human review of videos uploaded to YouTube, according to Wojcicki. The number of workers at YouTube and Google focused on content that might violate policies was to increase to more than 10,000.”We’re also currently developing policies that would lead to consequences if a creator does something egregious that causes significant harm to our community as a whole,” Wojcicki said.YouTube last month announced ramped-up rules regarding when it will run ads with videos as it scrambled to quell concerns by brands about being paired with troublesome content.YouTube late last year pulled 150,000 videos of children after lewd comments about them were posted by viewers.
