HAMBURG, Dec 3 (Reuters) – German container shipping group Hapag-Lloyd, which is merging with Chile’s Compania SudAmericana de Vapores, is in no rush to list its share on the stock exchange, its chief executive said on Wednesday.



“A stock market flotation is currently not top priority for us,”Rolf Habben Jansen said, adding the company would first focus on integrating Vapores into its business.




In the longer run, Hapag-Lloyd still aims to launch an initial public offering, but the CEO said it was difficult to predict whether this would be possible at the end of 2015 already, as hoped, or not until early 2016.

GOOD DEEDS : COCA COLA INDIA IS HELPING SMALL SCALE MANGO FARMERS

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) shouldn't be used as a tool to sell more to people: Venkatesh Kini, President, Coca-Cola India.





By Moinak Mitra, ET Bureau | 5 Dec, 2014, 05.05AM IST





Until last year, K Geetha Rani's sprawling 30-acre mango orchard in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor district largely wore a deserted look. As a mango farmer, she could cultivate only six acres as water was scarce. "I heard there was a new technique of mango farming and visited a model farm created by Project Unnati to see it," she says.

Project Unnati is a collaborative effort of Coca-Cola with Jain Irrigation to build a sustainable supply chain for Coke's mango beverage, Maaza. The program ..

PEAK OF ECUADOR VOLUME IS OVER AS END OF SEASON KENTS KICK IN ...

Expect the market to pick up slightly from the current $5.00 range up to the $7.00 range as Peru is gapping and creating an opportunity for the December 15, 2014 through the January 15, 2015 window.


Peru is running late this year with some Ataulfos being shipped and we wait to see what effect the "El Nino" will have on the season this year. There is some speculation that if the "El Nino" does appear it will cut the Peruvian season early on the tail end.

La Unión de Naciones Suramericanas (Unasur) adoptó durante una cumbre en Ecuador la “ciudadanía sudamericana”, primer paso hacia el establecimiento de la libre movilidad de sus 400 millones de habitantes, dijo este jueves el secretario del bloque, Ernesto Samper.








“Aprobamos el concepto de ciudadanía sudamericana. Ese debería ser el mayor registro de lo que ha ocurrido”en la cumbre de la Unasur que se instaló en Guayaquil y que continuará el viernes en Quito, afirmó el exmandatario colombiano.



Durante la inauguración de la cita, Samper agregó que a partir de esta decisión los sudamericanos podrán -en un plazo todavía no fijado- circular, estudiar y trabajar en la región, además de homologar títulos profesionales.




El secretario recordó que los miembros de Mercosur (Argentina, Brasil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela) ya cuentan con una visa de residencia y de trabajo, que sería similar al pasaporte sudamerican…

HOPE FOR THE PLANET : Costa Rica's erupting volcanoes may help slow global warming

The October eruption of the Turrialba Volcano may have implications beyond Costa Rica. According to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Review Letters last week, small volcanic eruptions like that of Turrialba may play a big role in slowing climate change.



Scientists have long known about the climate cooling affects of the massive amount of sulfuric acid expelled during a volcanic eruption. The acid makes its way into the upper atmosphere where it mixes with oxygen and blocks solar rays from reaching the Earth’s surface. The solar-blocking effects can last for months, causing the Earth’s surface to cool over time.

TIP OF THE ICEBERG : Nearly 14,000 sickened banana workers to receive payment for pesticide exposure

PUBLIC HEALTH

1 DAY AGO





Workers in February 2000 protest in San José against the use of the pesticide Nemagon and ask for government assistance for health concerns resulting from exposure.

After 13 years, Costa Rica finally has a regulation guaranteeing payment of physical and psychological damages for nearly 14,000 banana workers who were exposed to the banned pesticide Nemagon. The decree by President Luis Guillermo Solís was published in the government newspaper La Gaceta on Monday, the last step before a law can go into effect.




Between 1967 and 1979, thousands of workers in banana fields owned by foreign companies in Costa Rica and across Central America were exposed to the nematocide Nemagon, also known as DBCP, a chemical that has been proven to cause myriad health problems including sterility, cancer, miscarriages and genetic deformities. Costa Rica banned the importation of the chemical in 1979.




A law has been on the books since September 2001 promi…

New York Produce Show keeps on growing

Yesterday the New York Produce Show held it's tradeshow and with 5,000 attendees and more than 400 exhibitors, the show is still growing. 



Exhibitors were very pleased with the amount of visitors, not only with the amount but also the time they stayed at the tradeshow. 


It stayed busy till approximately 1 hour before the end of the show. 







Although the tradeshow is classified as a regional show, exhibitors from California and Washington didn't want to miss this opportunity. 


Some exhibitors said that the show is growing in a way, that it may be not a regional show any more in a couple of years. However it is still the objective of the organisers. 



This trend also shows the importance of the North-Eastern United States market.



Today the show has different tours, and on Monday a photo report will follow on www.FreshPlaza.com.
