London Mayor Visits Forman & Field

One of the UK’s oldest and best respected fine food vendors, Forman & Field has always enjoyed providing for discerning palates. With this background, the company was thrilled to receive a visit from the London Mayor, Boris Johnson.

Attracted by the unmistakable quality of Forman & Field’s organic foods, catered meals, hampers and gift baskets, Johnson was pleased to wander round the Fish Island premises.

With the London Olympics coming up, Boris Johnson is keen to do everything he can to ensure a great experience for both visitors and residents of London. As well as providing a great selection of produce for those looking for something special for the events, Forman & Field is providing all the smoked salmon for the meals the Olympic competitors will enjoy in-flight on British Airways’ business class menus.

From classic British dishes such as three-bird roasts – that’s a pheasant in a chicken in a goose – to an all-in-one hamper Christmas wouldn’t be complete without, Forman & Field brings a taste of luxury to many Londoners’ lives. Proud of their reputation for sourcing and selling the very best in traditional British cuisine, they also provide delicacies from across Europe and around the world.

During his visit, Boris Johnson was happy to look around the premises, which includes a smokehouse for salmon, packing and processing facilities, and business offices.

Forman & Field for Everybody
Anyone who wants to investigate the Forman & Field premises is welcome to drop by to Fish Island, which is close to the buzzing commercial and transport hub of London’s east end. A more simple and convenient way to explore their offerings is via their website, which includes a gift basket range, luxury products, and good quality basics for any table.

The Co-operative Nets Top Marine Accolade

The Co-operative Group has been ranked top in the Marine Conservation Society’s (MCS) Supermarket Survey 2011, scoring 84% and earning a gold award for sustainable seafood.

As one of the most sustainable seafood retailers in the UK, The Co-operative was praised for its product labelling, Responsible Fish Sourcing Policy and sustainability initiatives.

The retailer doesn’t sell any of the products identified by MCS’s “Fish to Avoid” list and all its own-brand tuna is now caught using the pole and line method. Pole and line fishing is a more selective fishing method which results in less by-catch*, which reduces the impact of fishing on the biodiversity of a region.

According to The Co-operative Ethical Consumerism Report, which is published this week (Thursday 15 December), last year, UK sales of fish from sustainable sources grew 16.3 per cent, from £178m to £207m, twice the rate for total fish sales which increased 8.2 per cent.

The Co-operative Food’s Responsible Fish Sourcing Policy governs the sourcing of all its own-brand wild and farmed seafood including all food products, which contain fish, from ready meals to sandwiches. Each own-brand product is assessed to confirm the source is a responsible fishery, examining the individual species based on fishery location and method of catch; species’ resilience to fishing; by-catch estimates and whether species are endangered.

In 1998, The Co-operative was one of the first organisations to register support for the Marine Stewardship Council and has continued to work closely with them to promote responsible, environmentally friendly fishing practices.

Since then, The Co-operative has provided £200,000 to support UK fisheries to pursue Marine Stewardship Council certification. To date, 12 UK fisheries have benefited from this fund, including the entire Sussex inshore fishery comprising of 26 fisheries.

In 2009, the retailer supported the MCS’s Marine Reserves Now! campaign to lobby to adopt a policy manifesto commitment for 30% of UK waters to be Highly Protected Marine Reserves by 2020.

More recently, The Co-operative joined the battle to save the European eel with an innovative river navigation scheme designed to reverse the dramatic decline in eel numbers. Together with its partner The Rivers Trust, The Co-operative is building specially-designed passes, enabling eels to navigate physical barriers such as dams, weirs and flood defences which prevent them from reaching the slow-moving, upstream waters they require to grow to maturity.

In light of its work with UK fisheries, The Co-operative was also highly commended by MCS for the Best Sustainability Initiative.

Sean Toal, Acting Chief Executive at The Co-operative Food, said: “To top the Marine Conservation Society Supermarket Survey demonstrates our commitment to responsible sourcing and sustainable seafood. Our Responsible Fish Sourcing Policy, engagement in seafood sustainability initiatives and the work we have done to eliminate ‘Fish to avoid’ identified by MCS scored particularly highly.”

Kenny Cooks For the Fair

The acclaimed TV chef, Kenny Atkinson, is showing his support for a country fair in his home village of Darlington.

The event is being held at Grange Community Centre in Hurworth Village near Darlington on the 17th September and Kenny will be doing three cooking demonstrations throughout the day.

The chef, who has his name above the door of the village’s five star resort’s restaurant, The Orangery at the hotel golf and spa resort Rockliffe Hall, is well known for his winning dishes on various TV programmes, such as BBC Two’s Great British Menu. And like his appearances on the BBC’s popular weekend cooking show, Saturday Kitchen, Kenny will be showing his cooking skills to the crowds at the fair, which is being organised by Hurworth Parish Council, and will advise how to create his signature dishes in a series of live cooking demonstrations.

The lucky spectators at the front of the stage will then get to taste Kenny’s gorgeous dishes, which are expected to be made up of one stunning dessert and two fish dishes.

The fair is the first one to be held in the village and is hosted in conjunction with Hurworth Community Association and Saint Theresa’s Hospice.

The family day out which opens at 10:30 has been sponsored by Rockliffe Hall, a well-known hotel in Darlington, alongside Sherwoods of Darlington, Borderfields, and Thomas Watson Auctioneers and the fair promises people all ages fun throughout the entire day.

Kenny says:“This event is the only live demonstration I am going to do this year and it gives the people of Hurworth and further afield the chance to see me cook some of the fantastic signature dishes that they can eat at Rockliffe Hall, without being on TV, and hopefully this will will draw quite a crowd to the first Hurworth country fair. I really want to get involved in the local community, as it is now my home and I’m keen to give something back.”

Co-operative Launches Competition for Budding Sandwich Designers!

The Co-operative is offering the unique chance to create and design a sandwich that will go into production and on sale in Co-operative Food stores nationwide.

From 1 August 2011, shoppers and budding product designers of any age can visit The Co-operative’s Good with Food website to submit their idea for a new limited edition sandwich, their list of ingredients and say why they love their culinary creation.

The shortlist for the potential new Co-operative own-brand sandwich will be selected from entries submitted by 20 September 2011 by a panel of in-house foodie experts, and the winning sandwich will be announced in October and will go into production in early 2012. The winner will also collect a cool £1,000.

Earlier this year, The Co-operative was named Convenience Sandwich Retailer of the Year at the British Sandwich Awards for the second year running. There’s a Co-operative Food store in every postal area in the UK, so the winning sandwich could potentially be enjoyed by millions of UK customers!

Ideas for the new sandwich could be inspired by a creation that shoppers have already tried and tested at home, or by an unusual combination of ingredients that entrants have discovered work well together. The ideas could range from marmite & marmalade on a bloomer or a sausage & mash wrap to pastrami & pickle on tomato bread to banana, cream cheese & chutney on rye.

The Design a Sandwich competition will run alongside The Co-operative’s Favourite Food awards, in which customers* can vote online for their favourite Co-operative own-brand product in a variety of categories, with the overall winner being announced in September. Shoppers taking part in the voting will be entered into a prize draw to win £50 in Co-operative vouchers.

Most Sustainable Product Award for Co-operative Fishcakes

The Co-operative has scooped the “Best Sustainable Product” award at the SuperMeat & Fish awards for the second year running.

The SuperMeat & Fish awards aim to reward excellence in supermarket retailing of meat and fish – at both store level and in manufacturing.

This year, the accolade was awarded to The Co-operative for its premium Truly Irresistible Cod & Minted Pea Fishcakes. Firmly aimed at the indulgence sector, the fishcakes are a rich blend of naturally smoked cod, white cod, British mashed potato and Jersey cream, surrounding a minted mushy pea sauce centre and coated in a crispy and crunchy breadcrumb.

In keeping with The Co-operative’s highly developed sustainability credentials, the cod is line-caught from a responsibly fished source and is naturally smoked in Scotland to ensure the finest quality.

The Co-operative’s Responsible Fish Sourcing Policy, launched in 2008, is a unique method of assessing the sourcing of fish, and was developed by The Co-operative along with its partner suppliers and leading NGO’s, taking into account both environmental and ecological issues. It applies to all Co-operative own-brand fish, including canned and frozen, products containing fish and even sandwiches.

Readers of The Co-operative Magazine can also make their own delicious gourmet tuna fishcakes at home, following one of the many simple, quick and healthy recipespublished in the Food and Drink section online.

The Co-operative has long been associated with the Fairtrade movement, with responsible retailing, ethical living and much more, and as well as this award, the implementation of its Elmwood standard across its range of own-brand fresh pork and sausages earned it the accolade of Most Improved Supermarket, as voted for at the Welfare Awards 2011.

The Co-operative also won a Good Dairy Award in recognition of its good work supporting British workers to date, and of its pledge to join a milk producer scheme in August.

Christmashamper.com Deliver Their Solution For A Vegetarian-Friendly Christmas

Traditionally, Christmas is something of a meat-eaters holiday with turkey, gammon and goose all familiar fayre around the dining table.

Nowadays, some 11% of the UK population is vegetarian however; throwing something of a carrot-shaped spanner into the works when it comes to the iconic Christmas roast.

Thankfully, the gourmet gurus at Christmas Hamper have come up with the perfect solution this holiday season – a range of veggie hampers that make for vegetarian-friendly gifting and dining.

Christmas Hamper’s business development manager – Samantha Barrie – explained their reasons for including vegetarian hampers across the range:

“Consumers are becoming more and more conscious about what they put on their plates with regard to whether something is organic, locally sourced, ethically farmed and so forth.

“Vegetarianism has been around for some time now and it would be a real indication that we were out of touch with over 10% of our potential consumers if we weren’t to acknowledge this.

“We’re proud to offer vegetarian options right across our range; be it our Scottish Christmas hampersluxury Christmas hampers and even our savoury Chirstmas hamperrange. In that sense, there really is something to tickle everyone’s tastebuds.”

As well as offering a selection of over one hundred mouth-watering hampers, gift trays and baskets, Christmas Hamper have also become famed for their corporate packages that give businesses of any size the opportunity to customise and create bespoke Christmas gifts for colleagues and clients.

As Samantha Barries explains, being able to celebrate the dietary choices of individual clients goes a long way in demonstrating their value to your business:

“When it comes to corporate Christmas gifts there’s plenty of scope for creativity and individuality but a lot of businesses fall into the trap of opting for something more or less ‘off the shelf’.

ChristmasHamper.com – Luxury Christmas Hampers

With only twenty-three days of shopping left to go, things are really starting to heat up for consumers battling against the icy conditions, determined to buy friends, family and colleagues that perfect Christmas gift.

Could The Dilemma Of Buying For That 'Person Who Has Everything' Finally Be Over? Christmas Hamper - christmashamper.com - Certainly Think So

Whilst Christmas wish-lists and dropping the odd hint might go some way to help make Christmas gift giving that little bit more straightforward, each year still poses the dilemma – what to get for the person who has everything?

Thankfully, gourmet gurus – Highland Fayre – think they’ve solved the problem with their range of luxury Christmas Hampers; jam-packed with festive fayre and other goodies to suit absolutely any budget.

Discussing the versatility of Christmas hampers, Highland Fayre’s business development manager – Samantha Barrie – explained:

“The Christmas rush can become a stressful time of year, even for the most organised amongst us. This isn’t helped when you’re attempting to buy for that fabled ‘person who has everything’ or even someone who’s not sure what they’d like for Christmas.

“In situations like these, luxury Christmas hampers serve as an excellent gift; loaded with treats that can be enjoyed throughout the festive season and beyond. Our bespoke hamper service also allows you to tailor your gift to the personal preferences or dietary requirements of the person you’re gifting to and when presented in one of our Christmas gift baskets, trays, hampers or cartons they really make something of a show-stopper.”

The solutions posed by christmashamper.com needn’t stop there either as the flexibility of this style of gift giving means customers can peruse hundreds of pre-made collections at their leisure, from the comfort and warmth of their home.

Furthermore, as Samantha Barrie explains, this year’s Christmas hampers collection could be just the ticket for people buying for other potentially tricky recipients:

“As well a buying for people who have everything, there’s often other people on our to-buy for list who we might not know very well but still want to gift to – a child’s school teacher or long distance relative being a good example of this.

“In cases such as these, Christmas hampers act as a thoughtful gift and can be made as personal as need be. We’ve found that our range of Scottish Christmas Gift Hampers, for example, are particularly popular with people gifting to Scottish expats who may have lived out of the country for some years now but are still delighted to receive a gift reminding them of where they grew up.”

Foodie Festivities at the Forman & Field Open Day

The Food Theatre gave people the opportunity to see demonstrations from many independent producers, as well as to hear talks about their work. Then, there was the chance to try and buy at the Producers’ Market. There was a great choice of produce on offer from the Forman & Field family of food producers, with many people buying lots of food to take home as well as taking advantage of the tastings on offer.

Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery at Hackney Wicked

The Hackney Wicked Art Festival had its third successful year of operation this month, and taking part was one of the local area’s most successful companies, H Forman and Sons. Their premises opposite the Olympic park house the Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery.

The Hackney Wicked Art Festival has become a firm fixture on the London summer calendar, despite only having operated for three years. More than 30,000 people are thought to have attended this year, the highest yet seen at the festival. There are numerous art exhibitions, theatre and cabaret performances all over the Hackney Wick area, as well as interactive family events and markets. The emphasis this year, as ever, was on including local businesses and the local community.

Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery is open all year round, but it put on a special exhibition for the festival called ‘I see myself there, where I am not’. Rather than being a single artist exhibition, this included ten different artists’ work, all based around a theme – exploring ideas of heterotopias and ‘the other’. The gallery was the venue for the launch of the whole festival on Friday 30 July, hosting a successful opening night with lots of enjoyment to be had by all attendees.

The gallery continued to be very popular over the weekend – and not just for the art. After enjoying the gallery, many visitors chose to take in a meal at the brasserie, which operated all weekend, or take home some gourmet foods to enjoy later. Kids loved the family drawing day, where they got to take part in a competition to draw a picture of the Olympic stadium.

Fine British Food to Buy Online

There is increasing interest in traditional, fine British foods from small producers. Supermarkets dominate the market for food in Britain, but more and more people are appreciating the value of using small companies that aim to produce high quality food using artisan methods passed down between generations. Forman and Field, a London-based mail order food company, specialises in providing this kind of food.

Founded in 2002, Forman and Field aim to provide traditional foods from small British suppliers in an ‘online farmers’ market’. Their suppliers all use high quality ingredients and traditional recipes and methods. The company is part of H. Forman and Son, a traditional salmon-smokers and supplier of smoked salmon, other fish and seafood to some of the best restaurants and chefs in London. H. Forman and Son is a family business in operation in East London since 1905.

Many people have an unfounded, poor view of British food, and Forman and Field seek to rectify this. They provide a wide range of traditional foods, which would be regarded by many as among the finest in the world. The company is committed to ensuring that traditional methods of production survive. The salmon smoked by H. Forman and Son is a good example, using their famous ‘London Cure’, a recipe invented by Harry Forman, the company’s founder, in 1905. Many of their suppliers use similarly traditional methods to produce their products, and many have been recognised by various awards.

FoodTV Promotes Prudent Portions

With obesity rates rising, it is more important than ever that people eat healthily and take enough exercise. That is why FoodTV provide hundreds of simple and nutritious recipes, as well as demonstration videos to view online. However, when you begin to experiment and create your own dishes you shouldn’t forget the advice gained from FoodTV.

foodtvimage.jpg (400×300)

Every meal should include a variety of vegetables, carbohydrates and protein. You should also follow these tips for simple portion control:

Pasta
When cooking dried spaghetti, you should prepare a small handful for each person. Obviously this won’t work with some of the numerous varieties of pasta – a handful of penne pasta is not the same as a handful of tagliatelle.

Instead, a 230 gram serving of pasta is roughly the same size as a tennis ball. To make your pasta dishes even healthier, choose the wholegrain option.

Meat and fish
Both meat and fish are great sources of protein. However, nutritionists recommend you limit your intake of red meat, such as beef or lamb.

An average serving of meat should be about the same size as a deck of cards or a chequebook. A serving of fish – which is high in Omega 3 – should be about the same.

Vegetables
Whenever possible you should steam vegetables, as this means they will retain more of their nutrients. A 115 gram serving of cooked vegetables should be around the same size as an orange.

Dried fruit
While dried fruit will last much longer than fresh, it has around five times the calories by weight. To make sure you don’t overindulge, you should remember that a single serving of dried fruits should be about the same size as an egg or a golf ball.

Salad dressing
There is no need to add spoonfuls of dressing to add life to a salad. Instead, a drizzle of about five grams (roughly the size of your thumbnail) should be sufficient.

FoodTV provides hundreds of hours of online food-related videos, as well as easy recipesbudget cooking and drinks for all ages. Users can share recipes through the FoodTV community.

Venulum Reports That Its Venture Capital Lobster Farm Project Has Successfully Managed To Breed Caribbean Spiny Lobsters

Venulum, private wealth management firm based in the British Virgin Islands, has successfully managed to breed Caribbean Spiny Lobsters in commercial quantities in controlled conditions in the British Virgin Islands.

Significant recent catches of juvenile lobsters have been heartening. It is too early to say whether these numbers reflect the early season peak in numbers or the average settlement rate. When compared with previous research, the highly regular settlement rate matches that of the average settlement during a small-scale investigation between 2001-2003.

Giles Cadman, chairman of Venulum said: “It has taken us nearly two years of careful evolution of the collection process but we should now be capable of replicating it throughout the Caribbean, Australia and Asia to provide numerous business opportunities to fishers and young entrepreneurs.

“The numbers are very impressive, indicating that settlement is spatially uniform and that collection systems perform equally well at depth as on the surface and so the entire harvest can remain subsurface away from boat traffic.”

The lobster farm has been built at the Pockwood Pond site on Tortola, the largest island in the British Virgin Islands, and should be fully operational once hurricane protection has been completed on-site early next year.

The farm site is progressing with general finishing and fabrication work moving to completion. The Venulum management team has approved the construction of a mould for large-scale fabrication of tanks according to precise requirements. Experimental storage systems have been deployed in favourable deep water locations in the hope that these will be useful as holding accommodation for ‘post larvae’ while farm infrastructure is completed. If effective, Venulum hope these devices will prove vital in reducing the cost and time commitment of early culture operations.

The collection and breeding programme is based on knowledge gained from research undertaken by Rob Power, Director of Caribbean Sustainable Fisheries, who undertook his research in conjunction with the World Fish Centre. “I have been working on the principle of a sustainable business model for over ten years,” explains Rob “and we are continuing our ongoing research and development programme to finesse the process, with the emphasis on sustainability.”

He adds “Caribbean Sustainable Fisheries also intends working with local communities to build small scale lobster farming operations offering business opportunities to fishermen whose wild resource has been depleted to the point that it is no longer viable to continue fishing.

“Our aim is to produce consistent, high quality lobster that seafood purchasers can recognise as both sustainable and consistently good” explains Cadman. “Venulum has a large wine business and by working with many small wine producers, we have the experience and understanding to support them. The same principles apply to the fishing industry and we are using our experience to create a business model that can be easily replicated without the need for significant capital cost.”

With the steady progress to date, we can look forward to the first market sized lobsters in around 18 months from now.

About Venulum:
The Venulum Group is a multinational private wealth management firm headquartered in the British Virgin Islands. The Group manages the wealth of high net worth individuals, and specialises in alternative investments often not available to the general public.
