Starbucks branded bags of Darling Spuds crisps will be found in North America


The Darling Spuds crisp brand has been chosen by Starbucks as the latest addition to the fine snacking fixture of some 5,700 of its stores throughout North America. According to Darling Spuds co-founder Judy Willis: "Although it's too early to say whether this is yet another

example of the 'special relationship' that exists between our two nations, it's really rather nice that our distinctly delicious brand of crisps now has the opportunity to return to its roots." Back in the 16th century, of course, Sir Walter Raleigh returned to England with the potato - the 'hot' staple crop from South America that was taking North American tastebuds by storm... Darling Spuds' US offering will be produced in Phoenix as part of a deliberate strategy to keep the company's carbon footprint to a minimum, and will initially consist of the Sea Salt and Sour Cream with a hint of Mexican Chilli variants in 40g bags.

Entice customers with an alfresco experience


Daniel Putnins knows a thing or two about al fresco catering - and for cafés considering extending their trading areas by incorporating outdoor terraces he could be a very useful man to talk to. As a director of Strada, a British company offering bespoke café barrier systems from its manufacturing facility in the UK, Daniel will ensure your proposed café barrier installation will be acceptable to the planning officer - saving you time and money.

The Strada system, featuring tapping rails and low

profile bases, has a patented design developed to meet Local Council specifications and comply with both current DDA legislation and Manual Lifting Regulations. "Anyone who has applied for planning permission for an outside licensed catering area will tell you - it can be a nightmare," says Daniel. "The requirements are not always clear and seem dependent on the planning officer's interpretation. Details are constantly changing and vary according to location. Richmond, for example, insists on chrome or stainless posts. It costs £200 to apply for a licence with no guarantee of getting it. Then it can take up to four weeks if you need to re-apply and cost a further £200 plus the loss of income for that period." "We can submit plans and material specification sheets to planning officers as a free service," continues Daniel. "And our

system is infinitely configurable and fully compliant - but even this is not always enough. Recently we installed a system to a customer's own specification only to find that it encroached onto land designated as necessary for deliveries. Even though the measurements were provided to us, we took one barrier back to the factory and cut it to size, at no extra cost. Our customer was especially grateful as this ensured planning permission was granted right away."
