Weekly Round-Up ... 26 April 2022

Kellogg’s and the GAA have today announced that the summer Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps have returned for 2022. The camps are anticipating an extra level of excitement this year, with numbers back at full capacity across the country, following the lifting of Covid restrictions. The camps will kick off on Monday 27 June and run up to 26 August. GAA clubs across the country are set to be a hive of activity this summer, with bookings for participants aged 6-13 now open.

Britain’s Co-operative Group has announced plans to scrap use-by dates from all of its own-brand yoghurt SKUs, to prevent food waste. The retailer plans to replace use-by dates with best-before dates on packs, which, it notes, will help shoppers to prevent unnecessary food waste at home. Co-op added that it will commence the roll-out of best-before dates from May and have the full range amended by October 2022. Use-by dates on yoghurts are linked to food safety and guide shoppers to not consume past a specified date, whereas best-before dates refer to the quality, and often allow for the food to be eaten after a specified date.

Italy’s Grana Padano PDO Consortium reported 7.07% growth in exports in 2021 – its best performance of the past decade. If the last two years are taken into account, exports grew by a total of 10%.

Germany still leads the top ten exporting markets, with 581,000 wheels exported (+3% on 2020), followed by France, with over 256,000 wheels (+8.3%), and the United States, with 171,000 (+15%).
