Foodservice and retail bakery supplier Rich Products has started consultations over plans to make up to 100 roles redundant because of the impact of coronavirus.The business has also revealed that managing director David Hunt left the business “by mutual agreement” at the end of April. Hunt has been replaced by Hazel Tomkinson, Rich’s innovation and development director, who has assumed the role of interim managing director.Tomkinson joined Rich’s last year from Adelie Foods. She has worked for businesses including Mars, where she rose to the role of global R&D director.“At present, Hazel Tomkinson is working closely with our UK business leadership team to ensure we are responding to the current market dynamics in the right way for our customers and associates,” said Rich’s.Meanwhile, the business has entered a 45-day collective consultation with staff at its Andover site over proposals that place 100 roles at risk of redundancy.Rich’s consolidated all its production at the 13-acre site last year, where a purpose-built factory houses six production lines and a state-of-the-art development kitchen.The company told British Baker that, although bakery sales across the grocery and out-of-home markets were beginning to rebuild, the impact of Covid-19 on coffee shops and cafés had been “dramatic”.“As a result, we must ensure our workforce is the right size for our current business and are therefore restructuring across all functions,” explained a spokesperson. “This restructure also completes the planned consolidation of our workforce that began with the move from three manufacturing sites to our Andover hub in 2019.”The company added that its long-term UK growth ambitions remained in place.“We have already adapted our product range to meet new consumer needs as a result of the coronavirus and are currently holding positive conversations with customers to plan for the second half of this year.”

Sometimes, the World Cup offers more than just the game on the pitches. Occasionally, other games come up. Games of predictions also come up as the famed Octopus Paul of South Africa 2010 and the failed successors at Russia 2018.Followers of the World Cup also engage in â€˜Games of Numbersâ€™. Consider for instance, Russia 2018 is the 21st edition of the World Cup and the 21st match of this edition was played on the 21st day of June when Denmark played 1-1 with Australia.At the weekend, the numerals became more striking with the preponderance of figures six and seven when the quarter final matches were played on the sixth day of the seventh month â€“ a sort of six and seven. The four quarter finals clashes are therefore a sort of 6 versus 7.Half of the eight quarter finalists have six letters while the other four have seven letters. On sixth of July, France with six letters took on seven-lettered Uruguay. On the same day, Brazil which has six letters played against Belgium which has seven letters.Honours were evenly shared between the six-lettered and seven lettered teams. France beat Uruguay and Belgium eliminated Brazil.Those encounters were followed the next day with that of six-lettered Sweden losing to seven-lettered England while six lettered Russia lost seven-lettered Croatia on a day when seven â€“ seven reigned supreme (July 7).The game of numbers is getting stronger. The social media is awash with predictions that the numerals favour England.With all the quarter-finalists having six and seven digit names and with each pairing producing 13 consider the under listed:Uruguay vs. France = 13 LettersBrazil vs. Belgium = 13 LettersEngland vs. Sweden = 13 LettersRussia vs. Croatia = 13 LettersThose games were played on 6th and 7th of July, 6+7 = 13When all the above figures are added up, the result is 52.Itâ€™s been 52 years since England won the World Cup in 1966.When 52 is divided by four (the number of years between each edition of the FIFA World Cup), the result is 13.It has been 13 editions of the World Cup since England last won! One can then understand why â€œFootball is Coming Homeâ€.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Itâ€™s Coming Homeâ€™ is beginning to gain ground again. That was the theme song released in 1996 by English band The Lightning Seeds to mark the England football teamâ€™s hosting of that yearâ€™s European Championships.It was the first major tournament being hosted after the historic 1966 World Cup. England lost in the semi finals to Germany in a penalty shootout. Gareth Southgate, the current England coach, missed his kick, leading to a newspaper headline: â€œEngland are out through Southgateâ€.According to sportsvillagesquare.com, Southgate appears on a redemption mission. On his waste coat which has now become iconic at Russia is written: â€œItâ€™s Coming Homeâ€, a bold prediction, and possibly, determination to see England win the World Cup.
Manchester City are already working on how they can improve next season after sealing a spot in the Champions League, manager Pep Guardiola said as he mulled over potential targets in the summer transfer window.City secured a top-four finish for the sixth consecutive season with a 5-0 win over Watford on Sunday but Guardiola failed to win a trophy for the first time since 2009, after enjoying widespread success at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.”We are satisfied because we are in the Champions League, and tomorrow we will think about what we need to do next season, when the pressure will be the same,” Guardiola told reporters after City sealed third place with the victory.”Next season we will be better, and as a coach I am better than the year before, but it is not simple.”Guardiola said that the top Spanish sides were better placed to lure who they wanted in the transfer window as they had the money and stature to attract top talent from other clubs.”Real Madrid have just bought one player, 16-year-old (Vinicius Junior) for 46 million euros, so you can imagine the market,” Guardiola said.”To compete with Barca and Real we need time, we need decades to be there. Money is not enough – when Real and Barca want a player, other teams cannot compete.”The Spaniard noted City’s progress in the past few years but said that there was still work to do before they were comparable with Europe’s elite.”Before, we were never in the Champions League, and now we have been there six or seven times in a row. But, to achieve the next step, although the gap is shorter, it is more difficult.” Guardiola added.advertisement”To close the gap you need time, and in our world time doesn’t exist, it’s not allowed.”
