Bakels gives Diamond touch to cakes and desserts

first_img“Bakels Multiseed is now the biggest-selling product in four of our worldwide businesses,” Paul Morrow, international managing director, told British Baker at the recent Iba exhibition in Düsseldorf. Two new products were demonstrated by Bakels at the show: Diamond Glaze Extra and Frutojam Gourmet. And the firm also displayed a new Blueberry Crumble mushroom-shaped muffin.Diamond Glaze can be applied with a palette knife on the flat surface of mousse, cakes and desserts at both frozen and ambient temperatures. When heated up to 50C it is stable on mousse cakes and pastries of any shape. It is ready to use and freeze-thaw stable.Frutojam Gourmet is a range of bakery jams containing 45% fruit while Bakbel Blueberry Fruit filling is made from Wild Canadian Blueberries. Bakels group chairman Armin Ulrich said: “These are much more expensive than the farmed varieties but you can really taste the difference.” The fruit fillings range, called Lafruta, typically contains 70% fruit.www.britishbakels.co.uklast_img read more

A sense of adventure

first_imgEver thought about stocking dehydrated kale? Or almond protein balls? Healthy snacking has hit a recent innovation surge, ensuring a wide new range of convenience products. And while not every bakery or café outlet will suit the more adventurous new launches, there is plenty in the category to boost your profit margins.”People are more aware of health,” says Gareth Fryer, a planner at The Marketing Store, whose clients include Britvic and McDonald’s. “So it’s about making sure you carry a range of stock to cater for all where possible. Convenience food does well in recessionary times for obvious reasons, but there’s no point broadening the portfolio for the sake of it it has to be grounded in a solid sales objective.”So what kind of products will help you maximise your returns in healthy food-to-go? Before you look to stock, it’s important to assess your brand and what your customers expect from your outlet. But within the sector there are emergent trends this year and, if you pick the right product from the bunch, then good sales will hopefully follow.Crunch timeMost bakery outlets stock crisps, but healthier options of bagged salted snacks have broadened recently to meet demand. A recent Mintel report (2011) confirms that food-to-go sales of bagged salted snacks rose by a healthy 8.5% in bakery and café outlets, and the research giant predicts big things for new products. Healthy savoury snack products also fit an emergent customer profile, purchasing bite-sized portions rather than full meals. As Macphie marketing manager Jania Boyd advises: “It is important for bakeries and cafés to recognise and tap into the key trend of ’grazing’, or all-day dining. With many consumers cutting down on their lunchtime spend, they are looking for flexible menu options with smaller items available all day.”When it comes to actual products, the rising star for this year looks to be flavoured popcorn, with several new brands emerging. Gourmet brand Propercorn has launched in high-end café outlets, such as Benugo, Leon and Caffè Fratelli, with flavours including Worcester sauce & sun-dried tomato. Other new brands to look for are child-friendly packaged brand Peter Popples, and premium Joe&Sephs popcorn. The latter high-end brand sells at £2.95 for 90g and includes flavours such as goat’s cheese and black pepper and caramel macchiato and whisky.The other big mover in this category is vegetable crisps, which are now regarded as a mainstream product thanks to supermarket stocking and chains like Pret A Manger. In fact, the latter’s own-brand vegetable crisps proved so successful, they recently launched a second ’beetroot and carrot’ variation.For bakeries looking to stock a Pret equivalent, potato crisp brand Tyrrells has recently launched beetroot, carrot and parsnip vegetable crisps in 40g snack-sized bags for an RRP of 99p, so bakeries have the convenience of stocking an established brand. Meanwhile, smaller brand Glennans sells a 20g portion of its sweet potato, beetroot and parsnip crisps for an RRP of 49p.For truly adventurous outlets, or those with a very health-focused customer base, there is also a buzz around kale chips, which are on-trend in New York. Only one brand currently sells to UK outlets, and products come with a hefty price tag, but Inspiral sells kale ’crisps’ in Wasabi and Wheatgrass, Baobab and Cider Vinegar and Cheesie Purple Corn versions for around £3.50 for 40g. The products might be an innovation too far for the average outlet, but kale chip snacks now sell in London delis and health food and café chain Planet Organic.Nuts and seedsSo how are nuts and seeds selling as a food-to-go item? These foods have gained an increasing amount of press coverage, but market reports suggest that customers are looking for a convenient and appetising format. The obvious answer to this is the cereal bar, which was a boom product two years ago. However, Mintel’s latest reports suggest that, unlike salted bagged snacks which have continued to grow as a sector, cereal bars took a slight hit during the recession. Growth still prevailed, but these products proved a viable cut-back for consumers looking for perceptions of value, and this is confirmed by bakery and café outlets. “Customers are more interested in our freshly made tarts and cakes than cereal bars,” explains a spokesperson for Caffè Fratelli. “In the food-to-go sector we’d rather stock products that reflect the innovation and gourmet appeal of our brand.”While old-fashioned cereal bars might be a less profitable choice, however, ’clean label’ cereal bars appeal to the growing trend for products that have a homemade feel to them. One such contender is NutriChef’s newly launched Flapjack Bars, which contain no trans fats, salt, wheat or dairy and no artificial colours or flavours. The bars’ recommended retail price is £1.49, which can achieve up to a 40% profit margin for stockists and, with a dedicated PR campaign this year, brand awareness is likely to be high.Other novel formats for nuts and seeds include the increasingly popular ’Bounce Balls’ and similarly formatted products. These golf ball-sized sweet nut snacks have proved to sell well as a counter-top impulse buy, offering a palatable format for customers to eat nuts and seeds and a good price point of around £1.50.In their raw form, snack-sized portions of nuts and seeds are few and far between, but The Food Doctor brand has recently launched a range of 70g bags to follow on from its larger 150g tubs of nuts and seeds. Products include roasted soya nuts, savoury seed blends, and wholesome spicy fruit and nut mix and are attractively packaged.”We’re looking to move more into food-to-go, because this has become increasingly popular,” explains Paul Wyn of The Food Doctor. “We launched the packs because there was a market for pre-portioned nuts and seeds in healthy flavours, and sales in café-style outlets have borne that out.”If you’re looking to refresh your healthy snack range for 2012, either via a cautious expansion into healthier food-to-go, or by embracing the latest innovations, there is plenty to tempt both you, and your customers.last_img read more

Back then, team Captain Sara Kimball ’76, described as a “colorful, temperamental character, not easily forgotten by those who encountered her,” helped lead a resurgence of a competitive team that was tempered through hard work, perseverance, and no shortage of team spiritMuch the same could be said of epeeist Noam Mills ’12, current captain of the women’s team and member of the Israeli Olympic Team that competed in Beijing in 2008. For Mills, intercollegiate fencing has helped change her perspective on the sport, and credits her teammates with making the transition from Israel to Harvard an easy one. “It’s very different (in a good way) when I have teammates to share the joy of winning and the agony of losing with, “ Mills says.Harvard University recently played host to the 2010 NCAA Fencing Championships, being held from March 25–28 at the Gordon Indoor Track.

Letters to the Editor for Tuesday, April 9

first_imgI believe that it’s myopic and naïve for anyone to expect one person to bring positive change if the members of the different departments are not working together. That’s not to say that some weren’t.It’s important that city officials (including Schenectady City Council members) work together in coalition with the Public Safety commissioner in dealing with disgruntled employees, unions, corporate council, department heads, etc., in order for the city to move in a positive direction.Thank you, Mr. Eidens, for your service to Schenectady and its resident. I wish you all of the best in your future endeavors.Flora L. RamonowskiSchenectady Case for collusion? Connect the dotsIt’s hard for me to see any United States ties to Russia except for the Roger Stone things, and the Manafort, Cohen and the Flynn things, and the Maria Butina/NRA thing, and the Tillerson thing, and the Sessions thing, and the Kushner thing, and the Carter Page thing, and the Felix Sater thing, and the Sergey Gorkov banker thing, and the Azerbaijan thing, and the Sergey Kislyak thing, and the hack of the DNC thing, and the Guccifer 2.0 thing, and Trump’s request to Russia to hack Hillary’s email thing, and the Trump house sale at $100 million Russian fertilizer king thing, and the Wilbur Ross with his Cyprus bank thing, and Trump not releasing his tax returns thing, and the election hacking thing, and the GOP platform change to the Ukraine thing, and the Steele Dossier thing, and the Sally Yates firing thing, and Trump warning the Russians before the bombing thing, and Flynn’s Turkish lobbying paid for the Russians thing, and the Trump asking Comey for a “loyalty oath” thing, and the Trump firing Comey thing, and the finding out that Trump actually tried to fire Robert Mueller in June 2017 thing, and the lying to the American public during the campaign about having no business in Russia thing and the Ivanka super-duper Moscow hotel spa thing.So there’s probably nothing.  It’s coincidental, and those dots don’t make the picture that you are seeing.Glenn GraySchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesGov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionEidens’ resignation came as no surpriseI’m not surprised to read about the resignation of Public Safety Commissioner Michael C. Eidens.I don’t know why Mr. Eidens made this decision. However, when he was first hired, I was concerned that he would burn out with all of the responsibilities expected of him.Not only was Mr. Eidens expected to oversee the Schenectady police and fire departments (and their unions), but also code enforcement and possibly some additional responsibilities.I also felt that the $130,000 salary should have been higher due to Mr.  Eidens’ oversight of such important city departments. Maybe if Mr. Eidens had a magic wand?Knowing Mr. Eidens personally by working with him via the League of Women Voters’ justice committee on alternate courts, I found him to be of the highest character, working for positive change for Schenectady residents.last_img read more
