Food technology: 21st century fat fighters

In an interview with the BBC, Dr Gary Frost of Hammersmith Hospital, London, suggested that the obesity crisis might be tackled by replacing unhealthy ingredients of processed foods with healthier substitutes.

Mars: going with the flow

As part of a process to restructure its European operations, the confectionery giant Mars has decided to close one of its UK sites and move production of some leading brands to other parts of Europe.

Birra Peroni: look, but don't touch

Nastro Azzurro is undergoing a rebranding in the UK to emphasize its genuine Italian heritage and create an authentic and stylish image for the brand.

Heineken: chilling rumors

Heineken will not comment on rumors that it has produced a self-chilling beer can, although such products are certainly in development. Demand will be limited, however.

European forecourts: exploiting the 'off home' trade

The Irish licensing board recently approved Esso's fourteenth off-license enabling it to add alcohol to its non-fuel offering on the forecourt. With an increase in at-home alcohol consumption in Ireland, as in much of Europe, stocking this product category looks certain to pay off for Esso.

French ready meals: gourmet to go

The French are known for their gourmet cuisine, but Datamonitor's ConsumerGraphics database shows that the country's fastest growing food market is in prepared meals.
