  • Oldfields takeover gives Greencore room to grow

    first_imgGreencore Sandwiches said it was set for further growth, following its acquisition of the Oldfields sandwich business last year (British Baker, October 14, 2005, pg 3). The acquisition of Oldfields had given Greencore Sandwiches access to new skills and space, said marketing director Richard Esau. It had also enabled it to enter new channels, such as coffee shops, and had brought a new level of craft manufacture to its business, he told British Baker. The former Oldfields premises in Bow, London, now accounts for almost 20% of Greencore Sandwiches’ turnover. This figure is to be boosted with the imminent launch of a range of snack salads.Greencore will first launch a selection of pasta-based salads this month, produced at the former Oldfields plant. Further snack salads will be launched later if these prove successful. The Oldfields plant has been renamed Greencore Bow, following the acquisition, to make it feel more like part of the wider Greencore convenience foods group, Mr Esau said. The group also has sandwich premises in Manton Wood, Nottinghamshire, and in Park Royal, London.The company’s product range has not changed significantly since the purchase, he added, although Greencore has moved some of its more complex products out of Park Royal and Manton Wood to Bow, where the staff’s skills are better suited to their manufacture. Mr Esau said: “We’ve worked hard to standardise ways of working across the three sandwich facilities. We have developed really good relationships with Oldfields’ customers, who have stuck with us through the takeover, and are now benefiting from the Greencore way of doing things.” A new site director, Tim Proudlove, had been appointed at Bow. Mr Esau said: “He has restructured the team, bringing broader expertise, but many of the faces are still the same. The skills and knowledge of existing team members have been invaluable in achieving the smooth integration of the new business.” SANDWICHES Market share 2005 (Greencore figures)MultiplesGreencore – 31%Northern Foods – 20%Samworth Brothers – 17%Buckingham Foods Forecourts – 8%Greencore – 26%Samworth Brothers – 8%Sandwich Factory – 10%last_img read more

  • Big banks remain in legal trouble over home loans

    first_imgby: Melody DareingThose looking for a home mortgage loan should probably look to other loan avenues, like credit unions, rather than big banks to stay out of legal fray.Most of the major banks, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Co., have been involved in lawsuits from both the government and homeowners since 2010 – all related to their dealings both before and after the housing market collapsed in 2008.A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) against Deutsche Bank AG and Credit Suisse Group AG last year because the action was filed past the time limitations for lawsuits.BOA, Chase and Citigroup settled their case with the FDIC.Other cases filed against the major banks include a case filed in 2011 by the federal regulator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac against 17 of the largest banks in the country and the U.S. Department of Justice filed a case in 2012 in Manhattan Federal Court against Bank of America alleging the bank sold more than $1 billion in bad loans to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. joining Blue Jays? Joe Girardi excited about possible call-up

    first_imgWhenever Vladimir Guerrero Jr. comes up to the major leagues — next week, next month or later than that — he will have the baseball world’s full attention.Former MLB player and manager Joe Girardi will certainly be paying attention to the 20-year-old Blue Jays phenom.  “If he hits 25 home runs, I think you’re excited. If he hits about .250, I think you’re really excited,” he told Virk and Nelson. “Obviously, you’re going to see much, much better pitching on a consistent basis. You’re going to see bullpens that you’ve never seen before, and he doesn’t know any pitchers.”Do I think he can do more than that? Absolutely. If you survive that first year as a young player after teams have seen you a second time and a third time in your division, you’re going to be a good player.”Guerrero has been hitting like a big leaguer in his first week with Triple-A Buffalo this season. He has two home runs (one was a monster shot vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre), six RBIs and a .412/.500/.824 slash line in five games. “I’m excited because you want to see your best players up, and I think he’s one of their best players,” Girardi, now an analyst for MLB Network, told Adnan Virk and Stephen Nelson on DAZN’s “ChangeUp” on Friday. Girardi was reacting to a report that Guerrero would make his MLB debut Tuesday.Guerrero was bidding to make Toronto’s Opening Day roster when he suffered an injury in spring training. The Jays sent him to the minor leagues for conditioning (and, many suspect, to gain an extra year of contractual control per MLB rules). The Blue Jays can control Guerrero’s rights through at least the 2025 season now that he will accrue fewer than 171 days of major league service time this year.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZN It appears Vlad Jr.’s time is coming, even if there were conflicting reports Friday about the date. Hector Gomez, a reporter in the Dominican Republic, reported that Guerrero would make his MLB debut Tuesday, but TSN’s Scott Mitchell reported that his sources said there would need to be an injury this weekend for Guerrero to come up that soon. The sources said there was a “1%” chance Guerrero would join the Jays next week.As for what Guerrero can do once he gets to the Show, Girardi is optimistic.last_img read more
