(BRITAIN) An independent coffee chain is believed to be the first in the UK to ban the sale of hot drinks in disposable cups, as from June:01: Boston Tea Party, which has 21 branches around England, will only sell hot drinks in reusable cups: Customers must either bring their own mug, buy one in store or pay a deposit on one they can return to any branch #AceFoodDesk reports


#AceFoodNews – Apr.24: Supermarket giant Waitrose has made a similar pledge to stop using disposable cups by autumn while Costa Coffee has vowed to improve on recycling: Boston Tea Party owner Sam Roberts said that to carry on handing out 300,000 disposable cups a year was “senseless” #AceFoodDesk reports

It is estimated that more than two billion disposable coffee cups are used each year in the UK, with fewer than 1% being recycled: The new plan for takeaway hot drinks, which account for £1m of the company’s annual £19.8m turnover, is the chain’s second attempt to reduce waste………….Customers were previously offered a 25p discount on drinks if they brought their own cup, but only 2.8% of people took up the offer.

Under the new scheme, customers who forget their reusable cup can buy one in store for between £4.25 and £4.75. Alternatively, they can pay a deposit on a loan cup and return it when finished: While paper cups can be recycled at specialist plants, they are not suitable for recycling with other paper and cardboard products because they contain a plastic lining.

Other UK coffee chains have also announced plans to cut waste. Costa, for example, has vowed to recycle as many cups as it puts into the market by 2020 – but Mr Roberts does not believe such plans are effective.

“Lots of coffee chains are making pledges about how they plan to tackle cup waste in the future,” he said, “but theirs is a future which is too far away.

“We want to demonstrate to other operators that to make a difference, big change is needed.

“We will make this work and we’ll share details of how we’ve done it with anyone who wants our help to do the same.”

Environmental charity Friends of the Earth, which campaigns on the issue, said it was encouraged that retailers were taking steps to reduce waste, but argued the government needed to do more to help solve the problem.

“We welcome steps being taken by coffee shops to decrease the amount of plastic pollution they produce,” a spokesman said.

“However, it’s the UK government which looks like it could use a caffeine kick for its plastic strategy.”

The charity insists that the only long-term solution to the plastic pollution is “a complete phase-out of all but the most essential plastics”.

(ECUADOR) UN agriculture agency launches handbook to improve safety in banana farming sector: Bananas are the most exported fresh fruit in the world. Ever think about how they’re picked? #AceFoodNews reports


#AceFoodNews – Nov.09: The United Nations agriculture agency and the Government of Ecuador launched Wednesday a practical guide for workers in the banana sector – the most exported fresh fruit in the world, both by volume and by economic value – to promote healthier and safer work conditions #AceFoodNews reports
04-24-2014Bananas.jpg

UN News Report Nov.09: 2017 ……“The banana sector serves as an essential source of employment and income for thousands of rural households in developing countries and the manual, while initially aimed at workers in Ecuador, can be adapted >for use around the world,” said the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in a news statement……..Presented on Wednesday, at the Third Conference of the World Banana Forum in Geneva, the publication outlines a series of recommendations for trainers and workers on how to manage banana farm risks and more safely carry out work……..It includes a wide range of guidelines covering topics, including proper handling, storage and use of agrochemicals/pesticides; measures for adequate personal protection, including first aid in emergency situations; ergonomic risk information; and ways to stop gender-related violence and other human rights abuses……..The conference brought together over 300 representatives from the banana sector along with other stakeholders, including UN agencies, governments, importers, exporters, retailers, producers, consumer associations, trade unions and civil society organisations.

Banana production

After cereals, sugar, coffee and cocoa, bananas are the most traded agricultural product in the world. Attempts to lower production costs often lead to disastrous consequences on the rights of workers and on the environment, according to FAO…..“For example, banana plantations use 10 times more pesticides than conventional plantations in developed countries. Elevated exposure to these agrochemicals can cause serious health problems for workers and neighbouring communities – one of the topics addressed in the manual,” FAO said in the news statement…….The manual also serves as a guide to identify risks and also as a source of information regarding current legislation to report on work-related accidents……..Of the almost 100 million tons of bananas consumed each year globally, around 20 million are exported……..Of those, almost 6 million come from Ecuador, the world’s largest exporter and the country chosen by the Banana Initiative for Occupational Health and Safety – coordinated by the FAO-led World Banana Forum and the non-governmental organizations Solidaridad and Bananalink – as a priority country for the manual’s development………..The guide is the result of an unprecedented consensus between the public and private sectors and civil society, and includes all current legislation applicable to the sector in Ecuador. It is expected to be useful for some 250,000 direct workers and from two to 2.5 million workers related to banana exports in the country………Given that banana farming is carried out similarly around the world, the initiative can be adapted and replicated in banana producing countries from Latin America to Asia and the Pacific, incorporating their own legislation #AceFoodNews

Scientists have invented a new chocolate called “ruby,” Swiss cocoa giant Barry Calleb aut said Tuesday as Dark, Milk & White makes way for more flavours #AceFoodNews – @AceFoodNews


#AceFoodNews – Sept.05: It’s time for dark, milk and white chocolate to step aside and make room for a rosier flavour..#AceFoodDesk reports

Ruby chocolate features a reddish-pink hue and has a fruity, berry-like flavour……. According to Barry Callebaut, the chocolate is made from the Ruby cocoa bean and has no berry flavouring or colour added………. The new chocolate comes 80 years after white chocolate was introduced to the market…….. It also arrives amid a meltdown for the wider chocolate industry………. Earlier this year, Nestle reported its slowest global sales growth in more than two decades, while Hershey said it planned to cut thousands of jobs…….. Barry Callebaut CEO Antoine de Saint-Affrique told Bloomberg that the ruby chocolate arrives following about a decade of development……….. The chocolate appears to be targeted toward millennials in a year filled with a number of colourful food innovations aimed at younger, Instagram-obsessed shoppers.“It’s natural, it’s colorful, it’s hedonistic, there’s an indulgence aspect to it, but it keeps the authenticity of chocolate,” Saint-Affrique told Bloomberg. “It has a nice balance that speaks a lot to millennials.” #AceFoodNews
