Real Good Food ‘stronger and more resilient’

first_imgSource: Real Good FoodRenshaw and Brighter Foods are getting “stronger and more resilient”, according to owner Real Good Food, after a tough start to the financial year.Real Good Food (RGF) said its plan for the current financial year was to leverage the capacity investment made during FY20 in Brighter Foods, to accelerate operational changes made within Renshaw and to generate revenue growth from new products and better customer service delivery. These objectives, however, were constrained by the pandemic and Brexit uncertainties.That said, RGF believes it did well to hold revenues within 26% of last year. There was a greater drop in profitability, and RGF operated at around break-even for adjusted EBITDA, compared to £2.8m for the first half of the 2019 financial year.Recovery was seen in Q3 with revenues and EBITDA for September to December 2020 sitting at £19.4m and £1.7m, respectively – which was in line with board expectations.RGF has shed many of its businesses in recent years to focus on its core divisions of food ingredients and cake decoration.For Renshaw, this meant a continued focus on developing strategic partnerships with customers and distributors as well as driving “fundamental operational improvements”. RGF said benefits from these were beginning to come through and the business has continued to develop and innovate new products, most notably with recent product launches in Tesco, Waitrose, and Marks & Spencer. It has also launched a vegan caramel to tap growing demand for plant-based food.Brighter Foods, which ended FY20 with what RGF described as “very significant revenue growth”, was impacted by the sectors its sells into being substantially closed during the first lockdown. Revenues were recovered in Q2 and Q3, it added, and it has remained profitable throughout the year.RGF says that once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, Brighter Foods is well-placed to recommence the growth reported in FY20, capitalising on its additional capacity, market opportunities and new product innovation capabilities, while Renshaw should benefit more fully from its restructuring and greater focus on product innovation and customer service.“It is pleasing that both businesses are getting stronger and more resilient despite the current economic challenges and that the group’s Q3 performance was much improved on the first half and in line with last year and board expectations,” said executive chairman Mike Holt.“The board remains committed to reducing the group’s debt burden and reviewing all initiatives to improve its capital structure.”last_img read more

Nursing student analyzes prison healthcare

first_imgThe latest event in Saint Mary’s “Justice Fridays” series featured junior nursing student Annie McGarrigle, who offered her perspective on healthcare in United States prisons.“I wanted to talk about this topic because I am a big believer in human dignity in the hospital setting as well as outside the hospital,” she said. “The ideas of healthcare regarding inmates really interest me, but more importantly, they really concern me.”Caitlyn Jordan | The Observer On an international scale, McGarrigle said prisons in the United States host more inmates than any other nation.“The prison population in the United States is the greatest in the world with about 750 people for 100,000,” she said. “Whereas in places like India, it’s 30 people for 100,000 and China 119, and then in Russia it’s 628.“In total there are more than 1.5 million people incarcerated each year, and 650,000 inmates are released each year as well.”During the discussion, McGarrigle said the nation’s infrastructure is not meant to contain this many inmates, and therefore, they are not getting the correct amount and type of care.“In the United States, the Department of Correction estimates that it’s holding 50 percent more people than it’s designed to, and that’s really dangerous because the people that are receiving care in this facility are more likely to have substance abuse issues, mental health problems, are more likely to have STDs and to be at risk for unplanned pregnancies,” she said. “So it’s really important that they’re receiving the care they deserve.”Along with the recent budget cuts, jails in the U.S. are acting as more than just correction facilities, McGarrigle said.“Our jails actually act more like hospitals, asylums, drug treatment facilities and retirement homes,” she said. “A lot of the people who can’t afford to do rehab treatment centers actually tend to commit crimes just to go to jails so they can receive the medication that they wouldn’t get on the outside.”McGarrigle said one in seven inmates also takes prescription drugs prior to incarceration.“Twenty-one percent of the federal inmates, 24 percent of the state inmates and 37 percent of the local inmates stopped taking those medications when they were incarcerated, which is also really dangerous because medications work by providing a steady amount of chemicals in the blood stream,” she said. “And so if you stop that, you’re going to get withdrawals, causing more problems than you started with, and may end up back in the system shortly after.”McGarrigle said it is also possible to help women in prison by using their sentence as a window of opportunity to provide them with the healthcare they need and may not be able to receive otherwise.“They could be getting the required reproductive screenings they need,” she said. “Cervical cancer, breast cancer screenings, STI tests, HIV testing, all of that provided by a federal or state prison would make such a difference to the women who are either staying there in the prison or going home.”Education is power, McGarrigle said, and it is especially important in prisons.“One of the really great things the United States has going for it is called DTAP, which is the Drug Treatment Center in New York City,” she said. “It offers residential, long-term treatment for non-violent, repeat offenders, and it’s actually shown to be really cost effective.”McGarrigle said she is considering bringing her own nursing talents to help in jails after graduation.“I think that everyone’s capable of love,” she said. “I think everybody’s deserving of love, and so regardless of someone’s past, I think that they should receive the best care possible. And I also think they should receive the care that I would.“The moral of the story is that no one is exactly right, and no one knows exactly how to treat this situation, but all I know is that there’s definitely room for improvement, and I think that we can all agree upon that no matter your political standpoint on it all.”Tags: Annie McGarrigle, Healthcare, Justice Fridays, prisonslast_img read more

SMC College Republicans and Democrats discuss immigration reform

first_imgCaitlyn Jordan | The Observer Members of the bipartisan debate discuss the recent influx of undocumented child immigrants in the United States and the impact of immigration on the nation.In her opening statement, junior Angge Roncal Bazan, a representative from College Democrats, said most children are migrating from areas in Latin America fraught with economic and social turmoil.“They are crossing into the United States in search of refuge,” Roncal said. “The reason they come is because the living conditions in their home countries have become increasingly unstable for reasons like trauma, stress, violence and abuse.”A large issue in the debate was the question of whether to send children back to the situations they had left when they crossed the border.O’Toole said there is a need to reform both border control and immigration.“To a certain extent, it gets out of our hands. If every child in the world said, ‘Take me in or I’m going to be killed,’ it would become too much,” O’Toole said.Junior Bri O’Brien, a representative of College Democrats, responded by saying there are 60,000 unaccompanied minors in the U.S. This is a small number compared to the nearly 420,000 deportations President Barack Obama has authorized, she said.Roncal said the Democrat party believes this system has to change.“The Democrats believe in a more permanent solution that keeps families together,” Roncal said.Shannon Golden, junior and representative of College Republicans, responded by saying it was important to prioritize the needs of legal citizens.“There is injustice going on throughout the world and [we can’t take] everyone that’s being victimized — as much as you would love to do that, we have [many] American citizens without food, without a roof over their head that we need to worry about first, before we can think about people that are trying to come into this country,” Golden said. Saint Mary’s “Week of Action” hosted a bipartisan debate between representatives of the College Republicans and College Democrats clubs Thursday at the College. The issue of the debate was the immigration of unaccompanied minors into the United Sates.The event began with an opening statement from College Republicans representatives. Senior and College Republicans president Nicole O’Toole said she thinks it is important to debunk the stereotype that Republicans are anti-immigration.“We are all immigrants, we are all American,” O’Toole said. “This is not to say that our immigration policies are not in need of dire changes.” Caitlyn Jordan | The Observer SMC College Republicans and Democrats convene to debate immigration policy as part of La Fuerza’s “Week of Action.”In response to a question from the audience on the relationship between Catholic social responsibility and immigration, Roncal said the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) believe it is the Church’s duty to respect all who come the U.S. for safety.She said the USCCB believes we have a “responsibility to help those in need.”A closing statement by the College Republicans emphasized the importance of immigration reform.“The goal is not to send children back, but to make sure no more [children] come in,” Golden said.She said although there is no clear solution yet, the U.S. must reform how illegal children are treated.Roncal delivered the College Democrats’ closing statement, highlighting the importance of keeping families together.Tags: College Democrats, College Republicans, immigration debate, Week of Actionlast_img read more

Business groups challenge stormwater ruling

first_imgGBIC & LAKE CHAMPLAIN CHAMBER ANNOUNCE INTENT TO CHALLENGE WATER RESOURCES BOARD DECISION ON STORMWATERBURLINGTON – On behalf of the business community in northwestern Vermont, GBIC will appeal the October 14th Water Resources Board (WRB) ruling that requires the unprecedented application of the federal Clean Water Act and NPDES program to stormwater discharges from impervious surfaces in impaired waterways.Along with the Lake Champlain Chamber, GBIC and a diverse group of municipalities, business people, engineers and legislators, constructed a framework that would have cleaned up polluted watersheds and allowed for reasonable growth. Last session, the Legislature believed they had achieved a comparable success when they addressed stormwater pollution in a comprehensive way by passing Act 140. The collaborative heralded it as Vermont’s solution to Vermont’s problem.Despite the considerable collaborative effort over the past year, on Thursday, October 14th, the WRB issued a surprising decision regarding Vermont’s stormwater permitting program. The decision has the potential to halt the clean-up process that the State Legislature began this year with the passage of Act 140. The WRB ruled that a federal permit must regulate stormwater discharges in impaired watersheds, even though no such permit will be available for 3-5 years. Furthermore, the failure to get a permit exposes anyone who owns an impervious surface in these watersheds to suit in federal court by anyone.”The economic impacts of this decision are dire and the environmental impacts are even worse,” said Ernie Pomerleau, GBIC Board member and owner of Pomerleau Real Estate. “Pollution will continue to flow into our water unchecked and projects that would have cleaned these streams are sidelined.”In light of the WRB ruling’s environmental and economic implications, GBIC and other stakeholders will be appealing the decision. In addition to the appeal, GBIC and the Lake Champlain Chamber will consider a multi-faceted approach to solving the stormwater problem, including legislative and broad-based community outreach efforts.”GBIC looks forward to working on the WRB case with the other appellants,” said Frank Cioffi, GBIC President. “It is imperative that we move forward with cleaning our waterways and promoting economic development.”For more information, contact Mary Sprayregen at 863-3489 ext. 206 or [email protected](link sends e-mail).The LCRCC is a non-profit organization that provides socially responsible leadership to enhance the economic environment of the Lake Champlain Region and Vermont. GBIC is a private non-profit economic development corporation that serves as a catalyst for industrial and economic growth in Chittenden County.# # #last_img read more

Game on! Esports officially becomes a sport in Indonesia

first_imgThe Youth and Sports Ministry and the Indonesian Sports Council (KONI) have recognized esports as a sports field, allowing video games to be contested in official competitions such as the National Games (PON).The recognition was announced during the KONI’s national virtual meeting from Aug. 25 to 27.
