Sainsbury’s escalates bread price war

first_imgSainsbury’s has added to the supermarket bread price war by slashing prices of large Hovis loaves to 75p. The retailer dropped 800g Hovis white and wholemeal and 750g Best of Both loaves from £1 as well as cutting nine of its 800g own-label from 75p to 55p, according to British Baker’s sister title The Grocer. The cuts mean Sainsbury’s now has the lowest base price for a large branded and standard own-label loaf of the Big Four.Sainsbury’s lower prices could be here to stay, as it branded loaves at 75p as “a new regular price” in ads. It matches promotional prices of two Hovis loaves for £1.50 in Waitrose, which has run since mid-January.Morrisons offers the next-cheapest 800g own-label loaf of the Big Four, with six lines priced at 59p each. Discounters Aldi and Lidl sell the same sized loaf for as little as 45p.In September, Sainsbury’s shaved 30p off the price of specified 800g loaves including in-store bakery loaves of that size, which took the price down to £1. And last April The Co-operative launched a new range of 75p own-label 800g loaves as part of its then-new Value for Money campaign. Around the same time, Tesco and Asda also reduced loaves to 75p and 79p respectively.Unit sales of wrapped bread across the three major brands and own-label have fallen 4.5% year-on-year and price deflation has pushed value down 9.6% [IRI 52 w/e 6 December 2014].The market is also under pressure from wheat prices, with costs set to remain high until the start of the 2015 crop in August.last_img read more

An Intramural Republican Fight Breaks Out Over the C.I.A. Director’s Fate

first_imgWASHINGTON — Internal Republican divisions over the fate of Gina Haspel’s tenure as C.I.A. director have come tumbling into view as some Senate leaders showed support while President Trump’s allies pushed for her ouster, in part over the agency’s role in disseminating the whistle-blower complaint that prompted impeachment, according to current and former administration officials.For weeks, Mr. Trump has been mulling whether to fire Ms. Haspel, the agency’s first female director. Despite Mr. Trump’s refusal to accept his election loss, people close to him understand that his time in office is limited and the window to remove her is dwindling.- Advertisement – Some officials and presidential allies believe that Ms. Haspel failed to do enough to stop the whistle-blower’s complaints about Mr. Trump’s July 2019 call with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, which prompted impeachment, from moving forward. Others have also grown frustrated with her opposition to declassifying documents related to Russia’s 2016 election interference.White House aides are divided over Ms. Haspel’s removal. Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel, opposes it, though other officials are pushing for her dismissal, the officials said. Allies of the president have had “a real issue of trust” with Ms. Haspel for more than a year, a senior administration official said. Ms. Haspel’s congressional allies noted that she is a cabinet official and has a responsibility to answer questions from lawmakers conducting oversight of the intelligence agencies.Tensions over Ms. Haspel’s fate intensified this week after Mr. Trump ordered a string of firings at the Pentagon that began with the ouster of Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper on Monday and continued on Tuesday with the removal of other key Pentagon officials, including the head of intelligence and the leader of the influential policy apparatus. The White House then installed loyalists in top defense posts. Top Republicans came subtly to Ms. Haspel’s defense on Tuesday. Senator Mitch McConnell invited her for a conspicuous meeting in his office.That prompted Arthur Schwartz, an informal adviser to Donald Trump Jr., to accuse top Republicans of trying to manipulate Mr. Trump into keeping Ms. Haspel, who Mr. Schwartz said “undermines Trump and subverts his agenda at every turn.” Making reference to Ms. Haspel’s previous clandestine work overseas managing C.I.A. informants, Mr. Schwartz said Republicans “are getting played by a master case officer.”Senator John Cornyn of Texas responded on Twitter, saying intelligence should not be partisan and is “about preserving impartial, nonpartisan information necessary to inform policy makers.”That invited a response from Donald Trump Jr., who asked whether the senators had discussed Ms. Haspel with members of the administration. “Or,” he concluded in an apparent swipe at Ms. Haspel, “are you just taking a trained liar’s word for it on everything?”Some of Mr. Trump’s allies believe the Russia documents they wanted declassified include information that will undermine established facts about the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. But others are skeptical the documents will change the understanding of what happened in 2016. Outside investigators who reviewed intelligence gathered at the time for a bipartisan Senate report released this year backed the conclusion that Russia favored Mr. Trump in that election.No decision on whether to declassify the documents has been made. But the ultimate authority to declassify them does not rest with Ms. Haspel. Mr. Ratcliffe or Mr. Trump could ultimately decide to release them, with or without Ms. Haspel’s blessing. The C.I.A. declined to comment.- Advertisement – Though Ms. Haspel had no direct role in the impeachment inquiry, it was prompted by a C.I.A. officer who made an anonymous and indirect complaint to the agency’s general counsel, then filed a whistle-blower complaint to the inspector general of the intelligence community.Mr. Trump has acted against people he has perceived as aiding the impeachment inquiry. After the Senate acquitted the president this year, he fired Gordon D. Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union who testified in the inquiry, and Michael K. Atkinson, the inspector general who investigated the whistle-blower complaint. The White House also effectively blocked the promotion of Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, the National Security Council aide who was the primary witness in the impeachment hearing, leading to his retirement.White House officials who favor Ms. Haspel’s ouster believe she has been insubordinate to John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, and boxed in the White House on the debate over whether to declassify Russia documents by sharing her concerns with Congress, the senior official said.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Over 800,000 lbs of chicken to be imported by year-end

first_imgGWI Managing Director,Dr Richard Van West-Charles– Van West-Charles among those granted licence A local chicken farmThe Guyana Government has granted several licences to import close to one million pounds of chicken for the latter half of 2016 and among the recipients are Managing Director of Guyana Water Inc, Dr Richard Van West-Charles and fired Debt Recovery Manager Lear Goring.Guyana Development Associates is among the companies granted a licence to import chicken and is jointly owned by Van West-Charles and Goring.That company was registered on July 27, 2015. Its address is registered as Lot 301 Meadowbrook Gardens, Georgetown. The company is among a list of 19 businesses/individuals who were recipients of the second batch of import licences to bring into the country some 884,000 pounds of chicken for 2016.GWI’s Internal Auditing Department is currently investigating Dr Van West-Charles over a litany of complaints and decisions, including the hiring of Goring in a position that he created.Goring was employed by Dr Van West-Charles, the son-in-law of former President Forbes Burnham, as a Debt Recovery Manager, and was paid a monthly salary $263,000 in addition to a $20,000 allowance.Goring came to prominence recently when it was found that he and the entity’s Managing Director, Dr Richard Van West-Charles, were also both Directors of Atlantic Fuels Inc – an entity which was issued with a fuel licence.Goring was also found to have been twice convicted of drug trafficking and was similarly deported on both occasions from the United States of America (USA).He was fired after the Board of Directors decided that “Mr Goring’s credentials do not satisfy the requirements outlined for the position.”Meanwhile, The importation of chicken has always been a controversial issue in Guyana as some importers have been very unscrupulous in the quality of chicken brought onto the local market. Only recently, the Law Enforcement and Investigation Division (LEID) of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) seized millions of dollar worth of chicken, which was smuggled to Guyana via Suriname.A number of local farmers are upset at the Government’s decision to grant chicken import licence citing the fact that they have adequate supplies for the local market demand. Some local producers queried exactly how 19 companies were granted licenses by the Government without any consultation with the local industry. This publication was told that such a move by the Government will have devastating consequences on local chicken producers and the feed industry.last_img read more
