Did you know?... Phosphate additives in kebab meat caused a stir in Brussels last week. The EU Parliament narrowly repealed a ban on the substance after health concerns were raised by left-of-centre politicians and consumer groups.

Did you know?... One in three Portuguese consumers regularly buys Ferrero Rocher chocolate boxes. A study by Marktest TGI revealed that 2.78 million consumers claimed to have purchased a box in the last 12 months, which represents 32.5% of Portuguese residents aged 15 or older.

Did you know?... Gin sales could surge by 30% this Christmas. UK retailer Sainsbury's forecasted the growth due to the popular renaissance of the botanical spirit among Brits, and said that it has come closer to dethroning whiskey and vodka.

Did you know?... Aldi now offers more sustainable flowers and plants. The discounter's German stores have committed to sourcing all flowers and plants from sustainable sources for their Aldi branches and their online range, Aldi Blumen.
