first_imgHead of the Business Unit, Food and Consumer Goods, Anjeta HindsThe massive Trinidadian rooted, Ansa McAl, goods’ distribution company on Monday morning introduced over 50 new products from five different brands which seeks to help Guyana strive towards achieving its green economy while giving locals a taste of healthy and delicious snacks.The products range from biscuits to coffees and even biodegradable items which the company says is the mere tip of the iceberg of what’s to come next.Head of the Business Unit, Food and Consumer Goods, Anjeta Hinds, shared a few of the products which are now available at leading supermarkets.She said, “You need to pick up Butter Kiss biscuits, or Pozuelo cookies or you need to try Juan Valdez coffee and you need to put it in your biodegradable hot pack paper cups and things of that nature. We also do have Pam’s Sardines. Pam’s Sardines are from the Connors Group of Companies, they are the leading manufacturers and distributors across sardines and tuna”.Hinds added that a host of biodegradable items such as foil wraps, reusable plastic products and reusable paper products will now be distributed across Guyana, at “unmatched” and “unbeatable prices”.According to her, the products are all healthy choices for both children and adults who are looking to keep their calorie and sugar intake low.“We know that everybody is becoming a little bit more health conscious. They’re looking at calorie count, they’re looking at sugar content across the different snacks and there’s nothing on this table that has an ultra-high, send your child into hyper-drive sugar content and or calorie count…we do have healthier options,” she assured.It was pointed out that the agency will strive to ensure the product reaches all corners of Guyana so that every local can have a taste of quality as well as access safer products that are better for the environment.The biodegradable products is one which has already been welcomed by many retailers and patrons as even the Government is seeking to do away with plastic.In fact Minister of State, Joseph Harmon at a post-Cabinet press conference last April, said ending of the use of plastic bags across Guyana is on the Government’s agenda. He explained that plastic is a problem across the world and Guyana, for its part, was not exempted from the consequences of this pollution.Providing a timeline, Harmon was optimistic that the ban could be pulled off by the year 2021.A new brand of coffee which was launchedlast_img read more

Padres Pounce On Mets, 7-2

first_imgSAN DIEGO — Although Noah Syndergaard showed flashes of his considerable talent, the New York Mets’ highly touted rookie didn’t show enough.Ian Kennedy threw six solid innings and outpitched the rookie sensation, leading San Diego to a 7-2 victory the night of June 2. Kennedy (3-5) snapped a four-start losing streak as he held the Mets to two runs and six hits.Syndergaard (2-3) showed why he is so highly regarded, as evidenced by his 10 strikeouts. But San Diego touched Syndergaard for seven runs and 10 hits in four innings.It was Syndergaard’s shortest of his five career starts. “It was definitely a frustrating start for me because I felt like I had some of the best stuff I had all year,” Syndergaard said. “I just didn’t get the job done.”Derek Norris connected for a two-run homer off Syndergaard in the fourth and Alexi Amarista and Will Venable drove in two runs each in a four-run second inning.“Obviously he didn’t locate the ball like he did before,” Mets Manager Terry Collins said. “The ball Venable hit, he left in the middle of the plate and the home run he didn’t keep down. As we know at this level, good stuff is great but you got to put it where you want to.”The starting pitchers had opposite results coming into the game. Syndergaard had allowed just two earned runs in his last 19 1/3 innings while walking one and striking out 16 in his last three starts.Kennedy had struggled in his last four starts, allowing 20 runs and 24 hits — including seven homers — over 19 1-3 innings for a 9.31 ERA.But they each did a complete turnaround. Kennedy allowed an RBI single to Michael Cuddyer in the first inning then gave up just two singles until the sixth. The right-hander struck out eight and walked two.“Getting ahead of guys, getting it down,” Kennedy said when asked about the difference in his recent starts. “Just getting pitches over for strikes,” he added. “It makes a world of difference when you are ahead of guys.”Syndergaard had his explosive fastball working but the Padres hit him hard early.San Diego loaded the bases in the second on three straight singles. Amarista followed with a soft line drive that tipped off the top of Snydergaard’s glove, deflecting past second baseman Daniel Murphy into right field, allowing two runs to score.After a sacrifice, Venable lined a ball past first and into the right-field corner for a two-run triple and a 4-0 lead.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
