Icelandic fresh foods company Bakkavör Group has snapped up speciality bread producer New Primebake and chilled manufacturer Laurens Patisseries in a major spending spree in the added-value bakery sector in the UK.Bakkavör, which last year took over fresh produce company Geest, said the acquisitions will make it the UK’s largest supplier of chilled bread products, and strengthen its position in desserts.Its purchase of Nantwich-based part-baked bread firm New Primebake, announced on April 27, is subject to the approval of the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), with a decision expected within eight weeks. The price has not been disclosed.New Primebake, which employs 340 people, had a £33.4m turnover in the year to December 31, 2005. It manufactures chilled part-baked bread products such as filled garlic baguettes, garlic slices and ciabatta, and supplies the major UK retailers.Chairman of Bakkavör Ágúst Gudmundsson said the New Primebake acquisition will expand its product portfolio and “will enable us to make full use of existing capacity, allowing us to continue to innovate to fulfil customer demand”.The acquisition follows a fire which destroyed its Geest garlic bread production site in April 2005. The bakery was one of the UK’s largest production sites for garlic bread, making 7,000 loaves a day.Meanwhile, Bakkavör said it spent £130m on Laurens Patisseries, in a deal announced on April 30. The acquisition “is a good example of our intention to continue to strengthen our market position in the fresh prepared foods markets”, Mr Gudmundsson said.Laurens Patisseries is a family business based in Newark, specialising in cream desserts. It employs around 1,200 people and supplies some 130 products, specialising in own-label.Mr Gudmundsson said the “well-managed” Laurens saw sales grow around 20% in 2005. Bakkavör said it expected further consolidation in the UK fresh prepared foods sector and said it is committed to playing an active role in this trend. What is Bakkavör?Bakkavör Group is based in Reykjavík, Iceland, and specialises in fresh prepared foods and produce. Founded in 1986, it now employs over 14,000 people in the UK, Iceland, France, Belgium, South Africa and China and has a turnover of over £1bn. The Group’s vision is to be the world’s leading fresh prepared foods and produce provider. Its key market areas are ready meals, pizzas and convenience salads.

He must also stay away from his victims for a full year and may also have to pay restitution.Here is the full statement:“I would like to apologize to all who I involved in the unfortunate evening of March 14th. Until that night I have never been in one instance of trouble. I was extremely intoxicated and although I do not remember the night, I take full responsibility for my actions. I am embarrassed and remorseful. I am doing everything possible to address the alcohol situation. Know that something like this will never happen again.I have let down my parents, my sister and brother, and my entire extended family and I am so sorry for that. I apologize to Syracuse University and my coaches and teammates for any negative attention this incident has brought upon them. I take my role as a student athlete very seriously and I pray that I am given a second chance. I am working very hard to regain respect from everyone in my life.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textI would like to thank my family and friends for their support throughout this ordeal.

“You just can’t fall into that trap because bad games will turn really bad really quickly if you don’t learn to negate that risk,” Rosen said.“I’ve been battling that my whole career. I have to find that balance of knowing when I can push the edge, and when to just take the sack and live to play another down.” Flores will have to make the decision of whether to start Rosen or veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick at the beginning of the regular season. The journeyman seems to have the upper hand, but if Rosen can “play smarter” he might impress Flores enough to earn the job.“At some point as a quarterback, you have to take a sack. That’s the play,” Flores said of a specific Rosen play, via the South Flordia Sun Sentinel. “But the guy has a little bit of a gunslinger mentality and likes to let it rip. Obviously, that was a nice one to Preston (Williams), but I think we want to play smarter than that in that situation. Not just let the ball go like we did.” Related News Josh Rosen got a lot of reps in during his Dolphins debut Thursday.The second-year quarterback completed 13 of his 20 passes for 191 yards in a 34-27 win over the Falcons. He wasn’t able to find the end zone and threw one interception while taking two sacks. But for coach Brian Flores, who was also making his debut as the play-caller for Miami, Rosen’s sack total should have been three. Kenny Stills gets death threats but stands by criticism of Dolphins owner over President Trump event The play in question resulted in a Dolphins first down. Rosen escaped the grip of a defender and found wide receiver Preston Williams for a 16-yard pass completion. It was good for the team at the time, but even Rosen admitted after the game it might not have been the best decision.“It may have been a little dicey,” he said. “But I probably should’ve been smarter with that even though this one worked out.”Rosen will likely get the starting nod in the second preseason game while Flores continues to weigh his options. It will give the young quarterback a chance to find the right balance.

I don’t consider that a negative time at all.“When I was at Milan, Suso, Patrick Cutrone and Davide Calabria were set to be sold. I think we did good work with homegrown talents like Manuel Locatelli and Gianluigi Donnarumma.”
