first_imgKingsmill has announced it has officially been certified by the Halal Food Authority as halal-compliant.The majority of the brand’s products are suitable for vegetarians – with the exception of Kingsmill 50/50 with Omega 3, which contains fish-derived Omega 3 – and while they have always been suitable for a halal diet, the firm said it sought recognition to tie in with its packaging relaunch, announced last month.This accreditation certifies that those Kingsmill bread and bakery goods with the Halal Food Authority logo are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines, said the firm.Guy Shepherd, category director at Allied Bakeries, said: “This demonstrates our dedication to catering to differing consumer needs. The accreditation means that it’s easy and simple for retailers and consumers to be confident that these products are suitable for a halal diet.”There are a number of ingredients that may be found in bakery that are not halal. According to the Islamic Services of America, L-Cysteine is an amino acid used as a dough conditioner and is often sourced from duck feathers or human hair, although there are synthetic versions available. Shortenings, such as lard, may also be made from animal sources.last_img read more

first_imgMany of the places have been created in the academies and free schools that now educate more than 50% of children in state-funded schools in England – with standards rising faster in many sponsored academies than in similar council-run schools.Today’s publication also shows that the number of pupils that are over capacity that has fallen from 97,000 in 2010 to 50,000 in 2018.Since 2010 the Government has led a dedicated programme to provide additional good school places with the creation of new free schools and expanding existing school sites.Most recently the Department for Education announced 37 special free schools and two alternative provision free schools, in addition to over 400 free schools already open and more than 250 due to open in the coming years. Statistics out today show that an additional 96,000 new school places have been created across England in the last year – taking the total number of new school places created since 2010 to 921,000.These figures mean that the Government is on track to deliver an extra one million school places nationwide in the decade to 2020 – and reverses a reduction of 100,000 school places between 2004 and 2010.At the same time, school standards have risen, with 85% of schools now judged good or outstanding – up from 68% in 2010, giving parents more choice of a good school place.Secretary of State for Education Damian Hinds said: Children only get one chance at an education and they deserve the best, wherever they live and whatever their background. That’s why this Government is undertaking the biggest expansion in school places in two generations – and the statistics out today show we are well on track to create one million places this decade. With standards rising in our schools this will mean that more families have the choice of a good school place.last_img read more

first_imgWolverhampton bakery chain Robinson’s has opened its fourth store, in Chapel Ash. Owned by Valencia Fine Foods, it is operating out of former Firkins Bakery sites.The Chapel Ash shop, two miles from Wolverhampton’s city centre, is the fourth Robinson’s shop to open in 14 months. At least five permanent posts are being created with the launch of the site, with “the potential for many more” part-time positions.Robinson’s was taken over by M Firkin Ltd in 1982 and the name gradually disappeared from the high street as it became part of Firkins. That firm went into liquidation in April 2015, but a package of shops and assets were bought by another family-run Black Country firm, Valencia Fine Foods Ltd. They re-opened three shops last year, re-employing many of the original staff.Rob Green, operations manager, told British Baker: “Following the final demise of Firkins Bakery (formerly trading as Newbridge Bakery Ltd) under the stewardship of Oliver Adams Bakery, we acquired assets and leases to three shops to form a new West Midlands-based bakery chain.“Our first shop was originally a Robinson’s store, so we felt it was fitting that rather than reboot Firkins we would revert to Robinson’s, and our West Bromwich shop opened in May 2015, followed by Oldbury in August 2015 and Merryhill-Penn in September 2015.”He added that Robinson’s collection of Italian desserts alongside traditional bakery cakes, breads, sandwiches and savouries, and Black Country favourites such as hot pork cobs and faggots & peas “has been well received”.last_img read more

Browne Awards 2020

first_imgThree graduate students in the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) were recently honored with an E. Broadus Browne Award for Outstanding Graduate Research.Given in honor of Browne, a former director of the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Stations in the college, the award is presented to outstanding master’s and doctoral students based on research and effective communication.This year, Lorena Lacerda in the department of crop and soil sciences was awarded first place for the Browne Award in the doctoral division. Her research is interdisciplinary and international — part of a collaboration between UGA and the Israeli Agricultural Research Organization — and focuses on using remote sensing to improve irrigation scheduling methods in irrigated cotton in the state of Georgia.“Winning this award is good feedback that gives me even more confidence to believe we are on the right path,” said Lacerda. “The monetary incentive that comes with the award will allow us to participate in more events and help us disseminate our results to the academic community, farmers and other stakeholders.”The first-place doctoral award consists of a certificate, $2,000 and up to $1,500 for support to attend a professional meeting. Second place is awarded $1,000. The first-place master’s award consists of a certificate, $1,000 and up to $1,500 in support to attend a professional meeting.Doctoral student Dima White won second place in the doctoral division. His research thesis deals with addressing keel bone fractures using nutrition and management interventions in laying hens housed in cage-free aviary systems. It consists of using a device to scan the keel bones in pullets and laying hens, and determining the structural compositions of those bones in 3D analysis.“[I’m] proud to represent the poultry science department because all of the faculty and students are doing great research and I couldn’t have done any of this without their help and support,” said White.Raegan Wiggins was awarded first place in the master’s division. Her research at the UGA Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics is based on working to combat the buildup of aflatoxin, a highly toxic substance that is sometimes found in peanuts. It is considered the most carcinogenic, or cancer-causing, substance yet discovered.“I firmly believe that, by educating others, we can all do our part in improving on the current world hunger and food safety crises,” said Wiggins.CAES currently has 580 graduate students across its 18 master’s degree and 15 doctoral degree programs.
