Sainsbury’s Q3 benefits from basic and premium ranges

first_imgSainsbury’s has reported healthy third-quarter profits, thanks to the sale of both its premium and value product ranges.The UK-wide supermarket chain reported its Taste the Difference (TTD) range grew by over 10% in the 14 weeks to 7 January, contributing to a 4.5% increase in total sales, excluding fuel. It sold 50,000 of its new TTD Kirsch Cherry Filled Christmas Puddings.In addition, staple ingredients from its Basics line grew strongly, with unsalted butter increasing by 82% and dried fruits up 30%, reflecting the growth in home baking.Justin King, chief executive of J Sainsbury plc, said, “This was a strong quarter, rounded off by our best Christmas ever, despite the economic backdrop. Across the quarter, customers chose Sainsbury‟s to help them Live Well for Less, taking advantage of our great value offer during October and November and then treating themselves and their families over the holiday season. “There were 26 million customer transactions in the Christmas week (18-24 December), 1.5 million more than last year. Like-for-like sales excluding fuel were up 2.1%, which was on top of a market-beating Christmas in 2010, giving two-year like-for-like growth of 5.7%. This performance would not have been possible without the fantastic efforts of our 150,000 colleagues.The company added over 600,000sq ft of new space in the third quarter, including its 1,000th store in Irvine, Scotland, and 21 new convenience stores, which grew at almost 25%. Sainsbury’s grew its online groceries at almost 20% and delivered a record 160,000 orders per week over the Christmas period.To see how well other leading supermarket chains and bakeries did during the 2011 Christmas, read the 13 January issue of British Baker.last_img read more

Indonesian homegrown gunship displayed at Singapore Airshow

first_img“[The CN235] can provide air support for ground troops, combat search and rescue missions, naval patrols, as well as border patrols,” Adi said in a statement on Tuesday. He added that Pakistan, the Philippines, United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Senegal were potential markets for the gunship.Such African and Middle Eastern countries are among the many nontraditional markets eyed by PTDI as Indonesian businesses seek to fill global supply gaps arising from the US-China trade war.The company exported at least two planes last year — one to Thailand and one to Nepal — and is slated to ship another plane to Senegal this year.Through its participation at the air show, Adi said that the Bandung-based company was also trying to expand marketing and increase the sales of its products and services, include planes, helicopters and most recently, long-range military drones, as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul services. (nor) State-owned aircraft manufacturer PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) is displaying a CN235 gunship at the Singapore Airshow held at the Changi Exhibition Center from Feb. 11 to 16.PTDI corporate communication manager Adi Prastowo said the company was seeking to “expand marketing and increase sales of products and services” by participating at the show.He added that the CN235 gunship — a multifunctional vehicle that can carry cargo, paratroopers, medical teams and patrol squads — had been developed to meet market demand. The particular model displayed in Singapore also sported a 30-caliber machine gun. Topics :last_img read more

There’s a good reason Dave Gettleman wore a mask in his empty NFL Draft room

first_imgThat’s what happened Thursday during Day 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft, when Gettleman operated from his home office wearing a mask over his face. At first, fans on social media thought it was another moment to joke about considering there was seemingly no one he needed to protect himself from. In fact, he had a serious reason for covering his face.MORE: Weirdest moments, glitches from 2020 NFL Draft Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is the type of executive fans wait on the edge of their seats to mock.His questionable draft track record and tendency to make odd public statements has led to quick-fire ridicule. Sometimes the urge to make fun gets in the way of waiting to hear the full story. Gettleman, a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2017, had an IT person in his house and didn’t want to take risks considering his prior chemotherapy treatment and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.Dave Gettleman on the mask: “I’ve got a young IT fellow in here with me and we’re social distancing, and part of it’s the mask. I’m fine”Gettleman is in remission from lymphoma, so naturally the Giants GM is extra cautious amidst the COVID-19 pandemic— Madelyn Burke (@MadelynBurke) April 24, 2020Just an FYI: Dave Gettleman was wearing a mask because he went through chemo two years ago and there is an IT person in his house. #Giants .— Zack Rosenblatt (@ZackBlatt) April 24, 2020The Giants took left tackle Andrew Thomas from Georgia with the No. 4 overall pick.New York has at least one selection in every round this year.last_img read more

Pick 6: Some old geezers to watch this season

first_imgArizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald laughs with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) in the second half of an NFL preseason football game in New Orleans, Friday, Aug. 17, 2018. The Cardinals won 20-15. (AP Photo/Butch Dill)Anyone who pays attention to the NFL knows that Tom Brady is 41 as he heads into the season. He’s hardly the only geezer, in football terms, still on the field or hoping to be when the season kicks off next month.Indeed, Brady isn’t even close to the oldest guy suiting up these days. His former teammate in New England, Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, is 45.There are plenty of players currently on rosters who are older than Rams coach Sean McVay, now 32. Hey, that’s in the midst of the prime competing years for most positions.Here’s a look at six 30-somethings who could be impactful this season. We’re steering away from the kickers, who tend to age a lot more slowly than anyone else.Drew Brees, Saints quarterback — There are no signs of Brees slowing down at age 39. He’s in the perfect offense, which he knows so well he could probably run it from a rocking chair.Helping mightily are skill position players such as Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram when he returns from a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr., and Benjamin Watson (37 himself).Also aiding Brees: A defense can’t throw anything at him he hasn’t seen — again and again.“I understand that I don’t have a whole lot of time left,” says Brees, who’ll be 40 in January and whose contract expires after the 2019 season. “You’ve got to work and have high expectations and sacrifice and do maybe even more now than I ever have.”Andrew Whitworth, Rams left tackle — Whitworth was a stud for Cincinnati for 11 seasons, but the Bengals must have believed he was through in 2016 because they let him walk as a free agent. Now 36, he comes off an All-Pro first year in which the Rams were dominant on offense.Despite all those years in the trenches, Whitworth looks as sharp and powerful as the day he came out of LSU in 2006. He has a shot at his first Super Bowl with a supremely talented roster around him.Julius Peppers, Panthers defensive end — Like Brees, Peppers will someday wind up with a bust in Canton, Ohio. At 38, he’s no longer an every-down player, but he’s an every-day leader.Peppers can provide ample force as a pass rusher if he’s mixed in efficiently, something Carolina is quite good at with its D-line. That’s essential in the league’s best division, facing Brees and Matt Ryan twice a season.Peppers was placed on the physically unable to perform list in July, but the Panthers don’t seem too concerned about his availability — or production — when the games count.Terence Newman, Vikings cornerback — Now this is really impressive: a DB who will be 40 before the season kicks off, yet can handle the speed- and agility-based duties in an increasingly fast-paced game.Newman enters his 16th pro season — he was the fifth overall selection by Dallas in 2003 — and this will be his fourth year in Minnesota. The league’s oldest defensive player likely will see some time at safety on a game-changing defense. To see any time at all in an NFL secondary at such an advanced age is stunning.“You have to figure out something else that you want to do, once you get to my age,” Newman said when he re-signed in May. “I think this will be my last year. No matter what happens, this will be it for me.”Vernon Davis, Redskins tight end — Once among the elite tight ends of the NFL, Davis remains at 34 enough of a force on the field and a positive influence off it to be a factor for Washington. He averaged 15.1 yards a reception for the Redskins a year ago, third best in his distinguished career.Alex Smith often targets his tight end — Travis Kelce became a star catching Smith’s passes in Kansas City — and Davis knows just about everything about playing the position.L.P. Ladouceur, Cowboys long snapper — At 37, this is his 14th year with the Cowboys; how many fans would recognize the Canadian in Big D without his jersey on?Long snappers always are unsung, fitting the cliche of only getting noticed when they mess up. Ladouceur almost never does, and he’s now the longest-tenured Cowboy with Jason Witten retired.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

Plan Launched to Rename Richmond’s Boulevard for Tennis Great Arthur Ashe Jr.

first_img(TriceEdneyWire.com) – A new effort is underway to rename Richmond, Virginia’s Boulevard in honor of Richmond-born humanitarian and tennis great Arthur Ashe Jr.Richmond City Councilwoman Kim B. Gray says she plans to introduce legislation in September to change the street’s name to Arthur Ashe Boulevard.“I think it would be very appropriate to honor Arthur Ashe this way,” the 2nd District councilwoman said. “This could a first step in renaming streets in honor of other Richmond greats like civil rights icon [Dr.] Dorothy Height and [Black newspaper giant] John Mitchell whom the city has yet to recognize.”Gray said she is submitting the name change proposal at the request of the Ashe family. David Harris, nephew of the late Mr. Ashe, broached the idea at a recent civic group meeting in Scott’s Addition. The idea already has received significant attention. This would be the second time such a proposal has been before City Council.In 2003, 6th District Councilman Walter T. Kenney Sr.’s proposal to rename the Boulevard in honor of Mr. Ashe was rejected on a 7-2 vote. Ms. Gray is taking on the issue because a major portion of the Boulevard is in the 2nd District. She believes the proposal has a greater chance of success this time.She said she has heard from businesses and museums along the Boulevard that support the renaming. Gray also said she hopes Councilman Andreas Addison, whose 1st District borders a portion of the Boulevard, will join her in supporting the proposal. “I am open to exploring any and every opportunity to celebrate and remember Richmond’s historic leaders,” Mr. Addison stated Wednesday in a response to a Free Press query.“I support the public process to explore this renaming of Boulevard. I have not received any formal information or inquiry about this name change as of yet.” Fifth District Councilman Parker C. Agelasto did not respond to a request for comment by Free Press deadline. A small section of the Boulevard around Byrd Park falls into that district.Mr. Ashe, who is buried in a Henrico County cemetery, is honored with a statue on Monument Avenue, the first non-Confederate to have a monument on the street.He is the only Black man to win the singles title at the U.S. Open, Wimbledon and the Australian Open. Outside the sport, Mr. Ashe was an activist and humanitarian, winning recognition for his opposition to apartheid in South Africa and for opposing a U.S. crackdown against refugees from Haiti. He helped launch Virginia Heroes, a mentoring program for Richmond area youths, and started the Arthur Ashe Foundation for the Defeat of AIDS and the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health before his death on Feb. 6, 1993.Special to the Trice Edney News Wire from the Richmond Free Press Arthur Ashe Jr. last_img read more
