Unifine to target home bakers

first_imgUnifine Food & Bake Ingredients UK will be looking at potential opportunities in the retail market in the new year.Following the acquisition of the business by Dawn Foods in June, Unifine Food & Bake Ingredients UK told British Baker yesterday that the company’s eyes were opened and it wanted to reach more customers with its fine patisserie ingredients, including the ever-increasing home baking market.Simon Solway, managing director of Unifine, said: “Home baking is growing massively and we are looking more into opportunities in this area,” said Solway. “In addition, we are trying to find packers who can reduce the sizes of our products that would be more suitable to home baking demands. “Our retail presence is low, as we cater more towards wholesale, the craft bakers and larger organisations. But the home baking market is something that we cannot ignore and could help increase profits.”The European food ingredients company was taken over by the international family-owned bakery supplier six months ago, which will be fully intergrated into the American-based company next year. Dawn Foods now handles Unifine’s seven manufacturing sites, 10 sales offices in Europe and its brands Sucrea, Fruibel, Caullet and Dethmers.“We’ve been analysing who’s doing what – both our customers and markets – and the potential growth and attractiveness of these,” added Solway. “The acquisition presents a new range of possibilities to our customers and they are coming on a journey with us as two separate businesses. There’s no overlap between us and Dawn Foods and our customers have a good relationship with both companies.”Explaining what was in store for the company in 2012, Solway said that looking at market trends would be a key area for the business to develop.Solway said: “We’re open to new ideas and that is something we will be doing more of next year. We will be looking at new handmade decorations and exclusive high-tech ingredients as a result of this. We aim to launch new ingredient products every month, such as compounds, flavours and mixes that are innovative and affordable, giving us that edge on our competitors.”last_img read more

Students share Ugandan stories

first_imgWhile many Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame students spend a semester abroad in Europe and Australia, six Belles chose a less traditional location for their international studies: Uganda. These rising senior nursing and education students shared stories, photos and videos of their six-week summer experience in a capstone presentation Monday. The students stayed with the sisters of the Holy Cross in Kyarusozi, Uganda, and worked with the sisters in rural community’s school and health clinic. Using the phrasing of a popular Ugandan Coca-Cola advertisement that proclaims there are “a billion reasons to believe in Africa,” the students shared their personal reasons for believing in Uganda. After working in the Kymbogo Health Center in Kyarusozi, senior nursing student Joy Johnston said she believes in the country’s unique way of life. “Working with the staff [at the clinic], there was no stress,” Johnston said. “They don’t rush, but they do what they need to do.” She also described the differences in technology. “There is no technology. So if someone has an IV, they rely on gravity,” she said. Senior Cassie Fill, a nursing student, said she believes her time in Uganda changed her initial perception of African lifestyles. “Contrary to stereotypes … [Ugandans] are healthier than people think,” she said. “As I finished my first day, I realized I had stereotyped them.” Senior nursing student Genevieve Spittler said “the sheer beauty of the country” and its people was reason enough to believe in Africa, especially when she and the other students had the opportunity to assist in deliveries while working at the clinic. “To hear a child’s first breath is the most beautiful thing,” Spittler said. The three education students shared their experiences of working in Moreau Nursery and Primary School, which teaches children from the equivalent of preschool to fourth grade. Senior Jen Prather, an elementary education major, said the connection she made with people in Uganda and the other Saint Mary’s students defined her abroad experience. “My reason for believing in Africa is because of our faithful and spiritual bond [with one another],” she said. “We all had formed a new family together and it wasn’t just the six of us.” Senior Sarah Copi said she shared a similar feeling of community with the children she met. “They taught me more than I could ever teach them,” she said. Copi said the hospitality of the Ugandan people meant a great deal to her. “They taught us generosity. They were always willing to give and share even if they didn’t have a lot,” she said. Senior elementary education major Nora Quirk said her students displayed a willingness to learn and valued education highly. “Every day there would be at least ten students who did not want to leave,” she said. “Every child takes an active role in their education.” Quirk said she wants to bring that same enthusiasm into her future classroom. “I really want to make sure I instill that value in my students here in the United States,” she said. In addition to speaking about their experiences, the students sold jewelry and other crafts purchased at Maria’s Shop in Fort Portal, Uganda. The proceeds from these items will support the Kymbogo Health Center and Moreau Nursery and Primary school in Kyarusozi. The Uganda Summer Program is available to rising seniors majoring in nursing and education. Three students from each major are selected and receive seven academic credits for the program. Interested students can apply online through the Center of Women’s Intercultural Leadership on the Saint Mary’s website.last_img read more

Vendors to credit unions: Focus on members, we’ll take care of the rest

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Randy Salser Randy Salser was appointed President of NAFCU Services Corporation in October of 2013. He comes to the credit union industry with over 15 years of executive-level experience in the areas … Web: Details Credit unions have done an amazing job of serving their members through the COVID-19 pandemic. From skip-a-pays to loan payment deferrals to emergency loans, you’ve been there for your members, demonstrating our people-helping-people mantra.Very often, credit unions are able to remain laser-focused on serving their members, because someone has your back. Your board members. Your community. Your business partners. Collaboration with business partners helped credit unions through the fallout of the pandemic and as we move forward.While no one saw COVID-19 coming– nor its vast psychological, social, or economic impact –until it was too late, many of the companies that support credit unions have been working diligently to help keep credit unions up and running through these challenging times. For example…Central Willamette CU was able to stand up cloud services from AWS in a day when the full effect of coronavirus was becoming known–from Virtual Desktop, which allowed staff to work from home, to Amazon Chime, that allowed for digital communication and collaboration. Joey Rudisill, CIO for the credit union, said he loved the data, quick charting and analysis capabilities of Amazon Quick Site, which helped in the short-term, but also set the credit union up for the future.One of the most critical pieces of member service during a crisis is clear, consistent communications. Total Expert Founder & CEO Joe Welu explained that credit unions must consider what they can do to help members regain control of their financial picture. When 83% are scared that COVID-19 will negative affect them and information is changing all the time, their credit union can be the calm in the storm through its communications. Welu conveyed that his company moved swiftly to build a rapid deployment of its data and technology solution to help credit unions educate and inform their members through the crisis, even while branch access was limited or closed.In times of crisis, there are inevitably bad actors who are going to take advantage. Mastercard Senior Managing Consultant Katie Steel shared that her No. 1 recommendation for handling claims and charge backs, is a streamlined, clean intake of the claim with a centralized team working through what’s true fraud versus something like buyers’ remorse. But that’s not always feasible, so equip the people who will be doing any intake (call center or branch rep) with the appropriate training, a strong recognition script, and decision matrix, including identifying relevant transaction elements. Bonus: Since mid-April, CUs can choose to go to arbitration under Mastercard’s rules rather than the merchant controlling the final steps of the process.The SBA Payroll Protection Program was a massive undertaking that moved forward very swiftly; and despite the problems, FIS EVP Rob Lee said that in that context, it actually functioned pretty well. FIS was on the frontline of helping credit unions and other financial institutions handle the massive transaction flow into SBA’s E-Tran System to push through PPP loan applications for small business applicants. Because the company was already working with SBA lenders, it was able to pivot quickly to get money back in small businessowners’ and their employees’ pockets. FIS culled down the intensive process to just 10 minutes for clients that automated it.Patch. Patch. Patch. That was the clear message to credit unions from DefenseStorm’s CISO Bob Thibodeaux. Credit unions should have an ongoing process in place to scan all infrastructure to determine the greatest vulnerabilities and then analyze that data.  Don’t wait too long to patch critical vulnerabilities – no longer than 90 days, but if you have to: prioritize. From there, follow standards and frameworks. Thibodeaux highly recommends taking advantage of free membership from the Center for Internet Security.With so many working remotely, Brian Bodell, AdvantEdge Analytics’ vice president of product management, advised credit unions on a number of must-haves to ensure security of member data. For example, using only company-issued devices for work activities and ensuring the security of home WiFi networks. Simple things like sharing a screen on a video conference can cause problems, so he cautioned to always count to five first to ensure all screens with sensitive data are closed. Additionally, employees should be mindful of their privacy to keep personal information or images to themselves. Finally, always be on guard against cyberthreats. And Allied Solutions continues to deliver new research and insights on risk mitigation and fraud protection—including up-to-the-minute alerts on the latest scams. CEO Pete Hilger and his team have been coming to market with a constant flow of new products and services to help credit unions and their members protect themselves.   Based on the efforts of the companies featured, a few things become clear. The future is melding the human and the digital worlds for comprehensive member service, whether in economic prosperity or crisis. The only way to get there is with precision expertise and knowledge that few credit unions, if any, can achieve on their own. Collaboration with the many CUSOs and vendors will help your credit union fill the gaps with domain knowledge and innovation.NAFCU’s Preferred Partners are constantly investing in next-gen technology, cutting-edge products, and innovative campaigns to help credit unions thrive. To learn more, register for our upcoming 2020 Partner Innovation Spotlight, July 8, 2020 from 2:00-4:00 PM EST.

Letters to the Editor for Thursday, March 28

first_imgRabbi Cutler worthy of community praiseAs a 97-year-old member of Congregation Gates of Heaven (oldest man in the synagogue), I feel well-qualified to celebrate Rabbi Matthew Cutler as an outstanding community leader.Over his 24 years’ of service at Temple Gates, Rabbi Cutler emerged as one of the strongest and most visible clergy leaders in the Capital District. His ecumenical work is well known. He’s a much sought-after speaker and teacher in the area. He’s one of the founders of the interfaith conference, Schenectady Clergy Against Hate, a group dedicated to cross religious and cultural lines and foster healthier dialogue to build a strong community. She suggests that one American who dies at the hands of an illegal immigrant is one too many. Then she contradicts herself by gladly offering the physical whereabouts of any Democrat or liberal, as well as disarming their means of security. Apparently they are not included in her “one too many” worth saving.The immigrant policies currently implemented at the border are both cruel and inhumane. Any policy that rips children from their parents with no news of when and how they will meet again is unAmerican. These are children, not political affiliations. We’re all honor-bound in a sane society to protect kids everywhere. How about some kindness? People with anger, fear and bigotry are far more dangerous than 99 percent of the immigrant population looking to us for a better life, much like our ancestors did years ago.“Every man’s death diminishes me, for I involved in mankind”  including Democrats and liberals, and all humans sharing this planet.Connie CartwrightScotia Rabbi Cutler serves on the board of Bethesda House, which is working to help the poor and the homeless in our area.On October 29, 2018, Rabbi Matt hosted a standing-room-only event at Gates of Heaven to remember the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre.Schenectady Clergy Against Hate speakers of several religious leaders included American Sikhs, Islamic Center, Union College, Schenectady Interfaith, African-American churches and several others.Rabbi Cutler is not only creative and innovative within the congregation, but believes in and practices outreach.Ted VinickSchenectady Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionFear and bigotry are dangerous qualitiesI’m curious what could possibly have given Bonnie Decker, in her Feb. 28 letter, the right to accuse all Democrats and liberals of “hating America.”Does she know them all and what’s in their hearts? That’s a very sweeping, inaccurate, bigoted, ridiculous thing to say based in no known reality at all.She has obviously been drinking from the cup that’s being passed around made up of fear, anger and irrationality, much like the followers of cult leaders, the ultra-right and Fox News pundits. Don’t trust Dems to pass major reformsIn response to the March 20 Gazette article, “9 fund-raisers in just 1 night,” I believe that the state’s Democrats “will enact campaign and ethics reforms.” I also believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.Paul ButlerNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.
