red tractor logo can play more significant role post brexit

The Red Tractor logo is something that British farming can hang its hat on as new international trade agreements are negotiated.  That’s the view of Jim Moseley, chairman of Assured Food Standards which runs the assurance scheme. Speaking at the NFU’s Conference, he said that with the huge challenge of opening up international trade destinations in light of Brexit, there is significant potential to use an established assurance scheme as a unique selling point for British food and drink. “The standards that Red Tractor food is produced to run right the way through the supply chain and are comprehensive,” he said.  “It’s something that British food can hang its hat on and use as a selling point. Markets are opening up and we should take advantage of that. Take the Asia-Pacific region as an e

researchers challenge need to double food production by 2050

"Food production must double by 2050 to feed the world's growing population." This truism has been repeated so often in recent years that it has become widely accepted among academics, policymakers and farmers, but now researchers are challenging this assertion and suggesting a new vision for the future of agriculture.Research suggests that production likely will need to increase between 25 percent and 70 percent to meet 2050 food demand. The assertion that we need to double global crop and animal production by 2050 is not supported by the data, argues Mitch Hunter, doctoral student in agronomy, in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences. He says the analysis shows that production needs to keep increasing, but not as fast as many have claimed.However, clarifying future food demand is

you should totally steal this cute snack table makeover idea

The party problem: You want to have a movie night (with lots of food), but your plain snack tables are just that — plain.
The party trick: Jazz them up with a custom paint job.
We used eggshell paint because we like the matte look, although a satin or gloss finish will work just as well, if not better because glossier paints are easier to wipe clean if you spill food on them.
You don't even need a big thing of paint for this. In fact, a quart will be too much. Instead, get a can of sample paint (two if you want to add a second color!) from your local hardware store. What's sample paint? Just adorable mini versions of the stuff you'd normally get for your walls; usually available in all the colors for less than $5 each.
With our paint in hand, we used painter's tape to tape out our geom

A fascinating set of experiments has revealed that bees can be taught to use tools, even though they don't use them in the wild.Queen Mary University of London biologist Olli J. Loukola and his colleagues wanted to find out more about how bee intelligence works. Previous experiments with the insects have shown that they can count, communicate with each other using "waggle dances" that reveal the direction of food, and pull strings to get access to food. Loukola's new tool use test showed that not only are bees good with tools,

how to make the best buttery, movie-style popcorn

Hot, buttery, salty, crunchy — movie theater popcorn is as much a part of the cinema experience as the movie itself. The aroma beckons moviegoers toward concession stands, but the pay-off to this seductive smell is all too often disappointing, with greasy kernels loaded up with fake butter flavoring.
The fantasy of movie popcorn deserves better. Today, we fulfill the promise of super-buttery, crispy popcorn with the recipe it deserves.

svalbard doomsday seed vault gets huge (and critical) seed deposit

The so-called ‘doomsday’ seed vault located in the Arctic on the small, cold nation of Svalbard has received what is described as a large and major deposit of seeds. According to The Crop Trust, which oversees the vault, the deposit was made on February 22, and is a necessary part in ‘ensuring global food security.’ Almost 50,000 seeds from countries all around the world were added.The seeds were sourced from seed collections that were themselves harvested from plants in countries around the world. These countries include both the US and Mexico, the UK, Morocco, Belarus, India and Pakistan, Benin, the Netherlands, Bosnia and more. The seeds, like ones before them, will be stored for a long period of time as a potential way to mitigate future food production problems.The Global Seed Vault i

arctic seed vault grows as defense against food crisis

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a gene bank located about 800 miles from the North Pole, is largely to thank for that. It bolstered its reserves two days ago when it received nearly 50,000 seeds, according to Crop Trust, a nonprofit that works closely with the vault.Institutions from the US, the UK, Mexico, Benin, India, Pakistan, Lebanon, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Morocco, the Netherlands and Belarus deposited seeds, bringing the vault's sample total to 930,821. The crops included potato, rice, wheat and other critical food sources. While depositors still own their seeds, they're only permitted to withdraw them in emergency situations.For example, the International Center for Agriculture Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) made a withdrawal in 2015 during particularly trying times, Crop Trus

recipe: one-bowl chocolate wacky cake

The first time I made a crazy cake, it was a few days after 9/11. At the time, I lived in Wisconsin with my boyfriend and the world felt sharp and uncertain.
After spending countless hours on the couch, I needed something to do that would get me away from the TV. Baking seemed like a good idea. A recipe on the back of the Wooden Spoon Baking Book caught my eye, "This cake is mixed right in the pan, without an egg to help it rise. The crazy part is that it turns out so well."
Something easy that turns out well? Just what I needed.
Fifteen years later, that boyfriend is now my husband, we live in New York, and the world, well, you know — at times, it feels sharp and uncertain.
I still make the crazy cake.

By Rebecca BeauregardGASHAMO, SOMALI, 15 February 2017 – Mutas does not look at his mother. He is not looking anywhere, rather he lays still, his unfocused pupils covered occasionally by heavy eyelids. While we talk, his mother, Bedra Dek, keeps her eyes entirely on him. Her one-year-old son is suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and despite the food and water shortage and her two other children, she explains that all her thoughts are focused on him improving.“When your child is well, spiritually you feel happy. This is what I am waiting and hoping for. Nothing else is in my mind except this,” Bedra speaks softly, her eyes never wavering from her son.About six months ago, Mutas became sick with a cold. Since then, he has fought that illness and intermittent diarrhoea while they

interaction design: wine-searcher application

Wine-Searcher Application is an interaction design and UI/UX project shared by Olena Mostepan and MEAT Studies on their Behance profiles. In a nutshell, the whole idea was create an mobile app that could help you search and understand a bit more about wine, with the ultimate goal of making you love wine. From the interaction design point of view, it's a fairly simple and straightforward model. You can search wine by type of food, type of wine or even scan wines to understand more about that particular type. The visual design is also simple but lovely with "cute" icons across the many screens. From the images I felt that the fonts tend to be quite small and I wonder from the accessibility point of view, if the text color is not too light. Enough said, check out the images below for a better

the making of music | eurekalert! science news

These days, it's a territory mostly dominated by the likes of Raffi and the Wiggles, but there's new evidence that lullabies, play songs, and other music for babies and toddlers may have some deep evolutionary roots. A new theory paper, co-authored by Graduate School of Education doctoral student Samuel Mehr and Assistant Professor of Psychology Max Krasnow, proposes that infant-directed song evolved as a way for parents to signal to children that their needs are being met, while still freeing up parents to perform other tasks, like foraging for food, or caring for other offspring. Infant-directed song might later have evolved into the more complex forms of music we hear in our modern world. The theory is described in an open-access paper in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior. Music

how to make red beans and rice in a pressure cooker

"Red beans and rice on Monday" is one of the dependable workday cornerstones of New Orleans cuisine, a hearty dish rooted in the city's 300-year history. Originally an ingenious, low-maintenance way to feed a house on pre-machine laundry day, "red beans and rice" worked its way into classic status through the region's home, restaurant, and lunchroom menus.
As luck would have it, when I moved to New Orleans in 2001, I was looking for a way to feed a bunch of folks. A new transplant to the city, I had inherited my grandmother's kitchen table — a hulking, Formica-topped chunk of maple that served as one of the centers of our family's emotional universe. Two generations of my mama's family grew up around that table, so filling it once a week with clatter and food seemed like the right thing t

If you love pork, you'll love this Swedish recipe for pork chops with apple and sage stuffing. Summary
Serves: 2
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutesTips
- If you can't get thick pork chops, don't try to stuff them with the apple and celery mixture. Instead, coarsely chop the ingredients for the stuffing and fry gently for 5 minutes or so and serve as a kind of sauce. For a bit more theatre, let the chops rest for 5 minutes after taking them out of the oven then flambé them at the table.
- If you haven't got any aquavit or snaps you can use brandy or simply eat the pork without flambéing. It is such a tasty dish anyway that the flambéing isn't really necessary: it just makes for a bit more fun!Ingredients
