Eurotunnel eyes stake in French Channel ports

Tunnel chief says minority share in concession to run Calais and Boulogne would make sense

Eurotunnel, in the running to acquire three former SeaFrance ferries, has now expressed an interest in teaming up with the operator of the ports of Boulogne and Calais.

The Côte d’Opale Chamber of Commerce, is bidding for the new 50-year concession to run the two French Channel ports, which are owned by Nord-Pas de Calais Council.

Eurotunnel chief Jacques Gounon (pictured) told a French newspaper his group had proposed to the Chamber and its president, Jean-Marc Puissesseau, that Eurotunnel be a minority partner in the bid for the concession.

Gounon said: “It is my conviction that the three local structures – the ports of Boulogne and Calais and Eurotunnel, as a dry port – must have a coherent development policy.

“And why not include the state-owned port of Dunkirk too?”

Gounon also outlined the possibility of operating a ferry service from Boulogne during the summer mont…

BURGER KING adds mango to the menu ...

SILVER SPRING, Md. – This doesn't look like Burger King. The brick facade and mood lighting inside smacks more of casual dining.

It doesn't sound like Burger King. There's a quiet whir of blenders crafting made-to-order smoothies with real strawberry, banana and mango pieces.

Nor does it taste like Burger King. Not when one of its three new salads is topped with tangy apple slices and dried cranberries, and covered in an apple cider vinaigrette. You can even get made-to-order frappés.

But this is Burger King, all right — with its crown off and its gloves on.

Burger King Monday will reveal a future that's decidedly less focused on young, hungry guys and more culturally directed towards …

La enfermedad española - Una crisis financiera y social que no cede ....

Según el gobierno, 800.000 personas salieron a las calles para oponerse a la reforma laboral.


A pesar de severos recortes de presupuesto y drásticas reformas laborales, la economía ibérica sigue desplomándose. Por ahora, nadie parece ser capaz de evitar el colapso.

Sábado 31 Marzo 2012

El jueves España vivió una huelga general, con estaciones de metro fantasmas, vuelos cancelados, fábricas cerradas, un bajonazo del 17 por ciento del consumo de electricidad y marchas en todo el país. Los españoles protestaron contra la austeridad y una polémica reforma laboral, que flexibiliza los despidos y disminuye las indemnizaciones de los desempleados. Los sindicatos advirtieron que "si el gobierno no rectifica, habrá un conflicto social creciente".

España, por lo visto la semana pasada, va mal. El gobierno no da abasto para atender a los casi 5 millones de desempleados. Los expertos piensan que la economía se va a contraer, por lo menos, 2 por ciento. Tan solo el año pasado los juece…

PROFOODS shares the secret to mango success story ...

Of mangoes and a passion for country

By Jenara Regis Newman

Sunday, April 1, 2012

A FASCINATION for mangoes has spelled success for Justin Uy, whose mango products are available in 45 countries around the globe—in Europe, the Americas (North and South), Australia and Asia. But beyond mangoes, there is in him a love for his country that made him brand his product “Philippine.” It’s a brand name that has been around since 1982. The reason for making Philippine his brand, explains Uy, is to make his country—the product’s country of origin—known.

Uy’s first ventures into business were failures. He was into mushroom growing, poultry, shellcraft and other businesses but he said they failed because he did not have the capital needed to go big time. But with mangoes, he explains, “You can start in your own kitchen.” Which is exactly what he did, and for the first 15 years, he peeled mangoes along with his workers.

The first three years he describes as a “complete failure.” Things began to get bett…
