Food Design (Harrogate, Yorkshire) has recently received its first major order for low-trans-fat confectionery inclusions, which can be used in muffin recipes.The order came from a toffee dessert manufacturer, which supplies one of the UK’s leading retailers. It comes over a year after Food Design decided to provide an alternative version of its confectionery inclusions. The range, which includes Truffle Fudge, Fudge Cubes, Bake Stable Toffee, Toffee Brittle, Fudjies and Toffee Crumb, also works well with muffins, cakes, biscuits and cookies.Food Design anticipates demand will continue to grow as pressure from consumer and health organisations pushes retailers to offer products with minimal trans-fat content. MD Colin Hunter says: “We’ve had growing interest in the range and a number of orders to date. But this is the first major order we’ve received. We foresee increased demand in the future, following trends in parts of Europe and the US, where health concerns are driving change.”

MANILA – It is government officials and not medical frontliners that Sen. Cynthia Villar was referring to in her earlier statement about “working harder.” The senator over the weekend rejected the appeal of health workers to enforce stricter quarantine measures against the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Villar made the clarification on Sunday after drawing flak from netizens for dismissing calls from the medical community to revert Metro Manila to enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). “We have to work harder and better, but I am not referring in particular to the medical workers—our frontliners. We are referring to all of us and DOH (Department of Health) and Philhealth (Philippine Health Insurance Corp.) in particular,” Villar said. Villar also said that she recognized the sacrifices that medical front liners had to make in order to respond to the COVID-19 cases in the country. In her radio interview on Saturday, Villar said: “Hindi na siguro (dapat ibalik sa ECQ ang Metro Manila). Pagbutihin nila trabaho nila. Hindi puwedeng isara ang ekonomiya kasi kung ‘di naman mamamatay sa COVID, mamamatay naman sa gutom ang tao.” “The Task Force and the LGUs will have to work harder in trying to trace and manage movements of people and businesses to prevent more infections, and at the same time, be mindful of the people’s desire to earn a living,” she added. “We in Congress have just passed the Bayanihan package 2, after intense debates, to provide health and financial support to the people. The government’s economic team will have to work harder to raise the money to fund the package,” she said. Villar clarified that her statement was not aimed at medical front liners but at government officials, including her. “There is so much room for improvement in the government’s response to curb the transmission of the disease,” she added. “We all want to be safe and COVID-free. All of us are doing a difficult balancing act to keep people safe and alive. We all need to keep our jobs, the economy, to do our respective roles to sustain this. All of us have to work harder and better,” she further said./PN
