British Baker Saturated Fat Round Table Debate

first_imgDate: Wednesday 30th March 2011Venue: Leatherhead Food Research, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 7RY>> location and map for Leatherhead Food Research What are the technical, cost, time and resourcing issues facing bakers tasked with reducing sat fats?In 2009 British Baker organised a meeting between craft bakers, manufacturers, fats and oils suppliers and the Food Standards Agency (FSA), to give voice to the technical challenges in meeting proposed saturated fat reduction targets. Eighteen months on and a new government is in place, the regulatory landscape has changed, and the FSA’s nutritional role has shifted to the Department of Health.This follow-up meeting will draw key retail and manufacturing professionals in the bakery industry together to explore how the sat fat reduction agenda is developing. Following the meeting, British Baker will present the industry’s views to the Department of Health to help its food reformulation programme.Discussion points:How difficult is it to reduce saturated fat without compromising the quality of your products?What % reductions should be targeted? Is a blanket approach feasible?Should certain treat products such as indulgent cakes and butter pastries be exempt from the process?What if the baker also offers a healthy alternative? What are the differing challenges facing large and small suppliers and brands?Do credible fats, oils and ingredients alternatives exist in the marketplace?Given labelling restraints, what are the marketing incentives for brands to reduce saturated fat?Is sat fat reformulation the right strategy to tackle obesity and nutrition issues?What is a credible timescale to achieve sat fat reductions in light of resourcing and cost constraints?Agenda09.00-09.30 Registration and coffee09.45-09.50 Welcome, Sylvia Macdonald, editor, British Baker0950-10.00 Introduction, chairman, Geoff Talbot, ‘The Fat Consultant’10.00-10.10 Presentation10.10-11.00 Discussion (includes coffee)11.00-11.10 Presentation11.10-12.30 Discussion 12:30-14:00 Networking LunchReserve your free place today!To reserve your FREE place call:Rachael CannonTel: 01293 610433email: [email protected] are strictly limited to manufacturers and retailers only and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Ex-AB’s assault conviction overturned

first_imgStuff.co.nz 22 June 2012A former All Black convicted of assaulting his son has had his conviction overturned on appeal to the High Court. The man, who cannot be named to keep his son’s identity secret, pleaded guilty in November after striking his son twice with a leather belt. He was sentenced by Judge Tony Fitzgerald in the Auckland District Court in March to come up for sentence if called upon – in effect, no penalty – but his application for a discharge without conviction was declined. The former All Black had argued he had completed an anger management course and the consequences of a conviction would be out of proportion to the offending. He said he had engagements overseas and sat on a number of boards that could be jeopardised if he had to declare a conviction…. Justice Potter overturned the decision saying the man could be at risk of losing employment from speaking engagements, particularly overseas. “Additionally, there is a real and appreciable risk that his continuing contribution to the community would be affected by the consequences of a conviction,” she said. In the appeal, the sportsman’s lawyer John Eichelbaum sought to liken the case to that of a woman who was also discharged in the Court of Appeal for disciplining her son with a belt. Justice Potter said the two cases had “singular circumstances” and declined to use them in parallel. She said the crime was serious but was at the lower end of the scale in terms of gravity. The man strapped his son after his on-going fighting with his sister had caused “tension in the household”. He struck the boy once on the legs and once on the shoulder with the tongue end of the belt, causing bruising and redness. The marks were noticed at school and authorities informed.….Family First director Bob McCoskrie, who has opposed the “smacking law”, said it was another case of the law targeting “the wrong type of parent”. “If you talk to anybody, he’s a good parent.” McCoskrie said many parents convicted in the lower courts for disciplining their children were “rolling over and taking it”, but those who contested the decisions in higher courts were often successful. He said the law was uncertain and parents were in a “grey area” and legislation needed to be introduced to clarify exactly what was acceptable punishment. McCoskrie said he supported MP Chester Borrows’ bill that clarified the law – particularly that implements could not be used to discipline children – but that bill had been “shelved”http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/7156894/Ex-ABs-assault-conviction-overturnedlast_img read more

PHOTO KCCA MEDIAThursday, 4pmUganda ??  vs Egypt ?? Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Cranes striker Farouk Miya is confident Uganda Cranes will build on their strong start to the 2018 World Cup qualifiers despite recent changes to the team’s coaching staff.Speaking to FIFA.com, Miya said the departure of coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic and arrival of Moses Basena in the past month will not change the team’s resolve to build on their recent successes. Micho moved to South African Club Orlando Pirates.“Both coaches know the players and know how we play. I do not think there will be much of a difference and I certainly do not think that the team will be weaker as a result of our coach leaving,” he said.After an away draw and home win, Uganda are second in Group E behind Egypt, and are the only African side not to have conceded a goal so far in their World Cup qualifying campaign. Uganda has played four, won three, drawn one, lost none; goals scored are five, goals conceded none.Farouk Miya is joint-top scorer in Africa’s World Cup qualifiers so far with four of Uganda’s five goals scored in the qualifying phase, and two matches of the group phase.  While all eyes are on him to lead the attack Thursday against Egypt, Miya is confident the team has many match winners.“There is no star player in our team. That makes our team so strong. It is the unity that binds us and moulds us into a team,” he told FIFA.com.“As a team, we grew stronger when we beat Togo (qualifying phase). They have already played at the World Cup and we gained in confidence when we advanced at their expense. Even when we were drawn into the same group as Egypt and Ghana, not to forget Congo, we still believed that we could go through to the World Cup.” 3 Ghana201102−216 Nov0–0—1 Sep —5 Sep2–08 Oct 31 Aug—7 Oct1–0 Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
