Review of the year 2017: April to June

first_imgAs the year draws to a close, we look back at some of the major stories that have impacted the baking industry in 2017.See here for a review of January to March 2017.AprilWarburtons announced plans to close its Giles Foods bakery in Milton Keynes, which produced own-label products including garlic bread. Warburtons said the decision was a result of “significant ongoing challenges facing the business and is despite considerable time and financial investment”. In June, it confirmed the closure of the site.Bakery packaging specialist Reynards, which entered administration in March, was resurrected by Intelipac, a supplier of products including bakery and deli bags, carrier bags and corrugated cardboard boxes to retailers in the UK and Australia. The new business – Reynards Food Packaging Ltd – is run from the Reynards’ head office in Manchester.Genius Foods announced 115 workers were to be made redundant as part of plans to end production of non-branded products. “In order to support our market-leading position, we need to simplify and focus on developing and investing in a strong Genius brand,” said Genius chief executive Jeremy Bradley. In August, the business said it would close its production facility in Hull with the loss of 68 rolesNorthampton-based bakery Oliver Adams closed its 17 outlets, resulting in 150 redundancies. Insolvency experts BRI said the business ceased trading after Oliver Adams “failed” in its attempts to save the company. Ian Cooke, insolvency manager for BRI, said he had been working to keep the business afloat over the past year. MayDaelmans Group closed its former Fabulous Bakin’ Boys factory in Witney, Oxfordshire, with all 21 staff made redundant. The closure came three years after the Dutch bakery business acquired The Fabulous Bakin’ Boys out of administration with plans to develop and grow its portfolio. The closure followed a strategic review of Daelmans manufacturing and trading operations, which resulted in it consolidating its manufacturing base.Sainsbury’s began selling Patisserie Valerie products on its patisserie counters under a new partnership. Handmade cakes and pastries, such as its individual slices and gateaux, are made and delivered by Patisserie Valerie in the morning and sold in the brand’s own presentation boxes by Sainsbury’s. Initially trialled at 12 stores, the scheme has been extended to 18 Sainsbury’s.Bread brands again took three of the top spots in a list of Britain’s most chosen brands. Warburtons, Kingsmill and Hovis dominated the annual Brand Footprint UK ranking, produced by retail analysts Kantar Worldpanel. It showed Warburtons was the most popular UK fmcg brand, with 84.2% of the population buying it an average of 25.2 times a year, although it lost some ground compared to last year. In contrast, Kingsmill was the fastest-growing fmcg brand in the Brand Footprint top 10, pushing Hovis down from fourth place in the top 10 last year to fifth this year. JuneBimbo Little Adventures, owned by Grupo Bimbo, launched into the UK market for the first time with a range of baked family snacks. Each product is inspired by flavours from either Spain, France or Japan.Greencore acquired a manufacturing facility opened by Tasties of Chester in 2015. The processing site is at West Drayton, near Heathrow. The 40,000sqm site, in Stockley Close, was a £4m investment by Street Eats as part of a plan to triple its manufacturing capacity and improve distribution links within the South of England.Suffolk-based family flour milling company C Marston & Sons was bought out of administration by Heygates Limited. Marston’s flour mill in Icklingham, Bury St Edmunds, was sold for an undisclosed amount to Heygates. A freehold property owned by related property holding company D and S Marston Limited was sold to Throop Milling Limited.Warburtons reported that turnover had fallen more than £25m in the 52 weeks to 24 September 2016 as the “increasingly competitive” wrapped bread market impacted the business. But although sales fell 4.6% year on year to £526.3m, operating profit increased 2.3% to £35.5m as the business kept a tight rein on costs.Greggs announced the opening of its first UK drive-through on the outskirts of Salford, Manchester. The site created 25 new jobs and is open seven days a week from 6am-9pm on Monday to Friday, 7am-7pm on Saturday and 8am-6pm on Sunday.last_img read more

Tony Nominee Cheat Sheet! 11 Fresh Faces You Need to Know

first_imgEvery week, Broadway.com introduces readers to a new Fresh Face in the New York theater scene—this season, 11 of our stellar standouts became 2015 Tony nominees! Read below for a cheat sheet on Alex Sharp, Sydney Lucas, Steven Boyer, Leanne Cope, Geneva Carr and more Tony-nominated breakout stars, featuring portraits by Broadway.com Photo Editor Caitlin McNaney. See if these first-time nominees win big at the Tony Awards June 7! MATTHEW BEARDEdward in SkylightSkylight is Matthew Beard’s Broadway debut, but it isn’t his first time working with co-star Carey Mulligan. The pair previously appeared on the big screen in When Did You Last See Your Father? in 2007 and An Education in 2009. The actor, who calls Sheffield home, has had insomnia since his move to New York City. “It feels like the city whizzes by your window,” he said, “and all you have to do is step out your front door to join the wave.” LEANNE COPELise in An American in ParisA British ballerina turned Broadway star, Cope is the very definition of poise in An American in Paris—but in her Fresh Face feature, she revealed her obsession with trashy reality TV (especially The Only Way Is Essex, which is the UK’s answer to Jersey Shore) and her shower cubicle audition for the musical’s director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. BRANDON URANOWITZAdam in An American in ParisWhile Brandon Uranowitz is fairly new on the Broadway scene (he made his debut in the 2011 jukebox musical Baby It’s You!), at age 10 he was the only star of Toronto’s Ragtime who did not get cast in the Broadway transfer. “I looked too Jewish,” he told Broadway.com. “They dyed my hair and eyebrows every two weeks. Imagine me with foils on my head and white shit in my eyebrows.” LYDIA LEONARDAnne Boleyn in Wolf Hall Parts One & TwoAfter wowing London audiences as Anne Boelyn in Wolf Hall Parts One and Two, she’s reprising her powerhouse performance on Broadway (in an extremely tricky corset). Although Leonard isn’t a singer, she’s dreaming of taking singing lessons so she can one day play Sally Bowles in Cabaret…and maybe Elphaba in Wicked! GENEVA CARRMargery in Hand to GodWhile Carr isn’t quite as crazy as her character in Hand to God, she’s got a great life story. After living in 11 states, she settled down with her husband, a “handsome, smarty-pants architect from Tokyo” whom she met on OKCupid. While the 44-year-old is making her Broadway debut, you might recognize her as AT&T’s nagging “Rollover Mom,” a gig that paid for her apartment. EMILY SKEGGSMedium Alison in Fun HomeThe Broadway newbie grew up seeing theater in New York City, but as a kid, she was more interested in being an animal than an actor. “My parents used to call me the Wolf Child because I was a really rambunctious kid,” she said. “I would get into these horrible temper tantrums where I would snarl and bite people.” STEVEN BOYERJason in Hand to GodThis Tony nominee isn’t technically a Broadway newbie—he cut his teeth playing Gilley in the 2002 revival of I’m Not Rappaport—but his explosive performance as a troubled teen and his posessed sock puppet Tyrone has the theater scene buzzing. Before his big break, he upstaged Leonardo DiCaprio in a bit part in The Wolf of Wall Street and proposed to his wife Emily on a kiss-cam at an NBA game. SYDNEY LUCASSmall Alison in Fun HomeWhen we first met Sydney Lucas, she was a 10-year-old bundle of energy taking on the tough role of young Alison Bechdel in the new musical Fun Home at the Public Theater. She’s now reprising her role on Broadway, and while she’s a little bit older and wiser, her performance is just as powerful. “People ask me, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?'” she said. “And I tell them, ‘I’m already doing it. I can’t change!” RICHARD McCABEHarold Wilson in The AudienceIt’s his first time on Broadway, but McCabe has played a Prime Minister three times before on stage and screen. “It’s strange, because I would be a lousy politician,” he said. “I couldn’t keep up that pretense all the time.” But he’s happy to keep up the pretense on stage, especially if it means improvising with fellow Tony nominee Helen Mirren. ALEX SHARPChristopher in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-TimePlucked straight from Juilliard (which he called “a fairly traumatic experience”), 25-year-old Sharp’s performance in Curious Incident is the talk of the town. But before he was a Broadway star, he was building tables to pay his rent. “I found all of these distressed wood tables for sale at extraordinary prices online, so I went to Home Depot, made the tables and starting selling them,” he said. “I have a more glamorous job now.” MICAH STOCKGus in It’s Only a PlayThere’s a reason Micah Stock is so adept at playing coat check boy Gus in the star-packed revival of It’s Only a Play—he actually was a coat check boy before making his Broadway debut! The star, who was the only actor in the Terrence McNally comedy nominated for a Tony Award, is still awestruck about appearing alongside Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. “I’m spoiled just to even be on the poster, let alone be on stage with them,” he told Broadway.com.
