We will close down KFC and McDonalds’ if we don’t get more teachers – Western Cape Cosas

2018-03-02 – Christina Pitt

Cape Town – The Congress of South African Students (Cosas) has threatened to shut down businesses in the Cape Town CBD should the Western Cape Department of Education fail to appoint more teachers at township schools by Monday.
Cosas led a large group of high school pupils on a march to the provincial education department’s offices on Friday, after they were informed that a number of schools in Khayelitsha did not have enough teachers for certain subjects, specifically mathematics.

“We will close down KFC and McDonalds because it’s their friends’ businesses,” said Cosas chairperson Michael Mayalo during the protest outside the department’s offices.
“We can get enough attention and we will have enough learners.
“We are calling on our parents to boycott work on Monday and assist us with the goal of obtaining quality education.”

The organisation also demanded that Education MEC Debbie Schafer be removed from office.
“Cosas wants the MEC herself […]

2018-03-07 06:01

DALTON KFC staff handed over a R45 000 cheque to Vianney Children’s Home in Ndwedwe as a contribution to the home’s feeding scheme.

Every R2 that KFC customers donate to Add Hope, combined with KFC social-investment contributions, goes to sustainable feeding programmes to feed over 120 000 children at 25 national and 113 local beneficiaries.
Vianney Children’s Home is part of the local beneficiary programme, which sees KFC restaurants partnering with local charities to ensure that funds go to their communities.

Vianney Children’s Home was founded in 1962 as a non-profit organisation that provides temporary residence, a Child and Youth Care Programme and support for orphans and other vulnerable children and their families in the area.

Lethiwe Mazibuko, who runs the charity, said: “With a high unemployment rate and a lack of resources in the area, some parents cannot afford to feed or send their children to school. With Add Hope funding, the […]

KFC returns to UK supplier after chicken fiasco

Thanks to Tony Timm for sharing this great article.

2018-03-09 13:06

London – US fast-food chain KFC has re-employed its former delivery supplier in Britain after an embarrassing shortage of chicken forced the closure of hundreds of restaurants.
KFC announced on Thursday that Bidvest Logistics would supply 350, or more than one-third of its UK restaurants, but added that new partners DHL and QSL would be kept on board.
“Our focus remains on ensuring our customers can enjoy our chicken without further disruption,” a KFC spokesperson said in a statement.

“With that in mind, the decision has been taken in conjunction with QSL and DHL to revert the distribution contract for up to 350 of our restaurants in the north of the UK back to Bidvest Logistics.”
The spokesperson added that some 3% of KFC’s 900 restaurants remained shut, while suppliers were still struggling to deliver items such as salads and drinks to outlets that […]

Trump has reportedly changed his diet — and after a week of eating like him, I can see why it was necessary

Dennis Green , Business Insider US

• President Donald Trump has a notoriously bad diet full of fast food and high-calorie meals.
• Even the official physician to the president said that Trump “would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates.”
• A new report from Bloomberg suggests that Trump has recently changed what he’s eating to be more healthy.
• I ate like Trump for a week and saw why his diet needed a change.

Much has been written and said about President Donald Trump’s diet.
Considering reports that his “major food groups” are McDonald’s, KFC, pizza, and Diet Coke, as well as one that says he tries to avoid non-chain restaurants out of fear of being poisoned, it’s fair to say Trump’s food choices are far from healthy.

A new report from Bloomberg suggests that Trump’s diet has completely changed after a health check-up by Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson found that the […]

We tried KFC’s new ‘mojito’ – and one ingredient was a bit overpowering

Timothy Rangongo , Business Insider SA

Business Insider South Africa tried out KFC’s latest offering, the Midnight Mojito Sparkling Krusher.
• Basically, KFC just replaced the Sprite in its original Virgin Mojito with Coke.
• In our view, not an improvement. Still refreshing, though.

KFC South Africa recently gave its Krusher product range an update with the addition of the ‘Midnight Mojito Sparkling Krusher’.

The fast-food chain first rolled out a limited range of the blended ice beverages about eight years ago with the Virgin Mojito Sparkling Krusher – an icy, carbonated beverage with a Sprite base, mixed with mint flavoured syrup, garnished with a lemon wedge and mint leaves. It has since expanded the Krusher flavours with yogurt berry, P.S. chocolate and Bakers lemon cream biscuits among others.

The latest offering returns to its roots – it’s an alternative to the Virgin Mojito Krusher. We were curious to taste it.

The new kid on the Krusher block

Toyota and Pizza Hut Team Up on Self-Driving Pizza-Delivery Vehicle

Shared by Russel Fineberg – Thanks!

At CES, the automaker unveiled a new autonomous van called the e-Palette.

Toyota unveiled a new electric self-driving vehicle concept at CES this week, and the automaker has a lot of ideas about how it might be used. One of them it’s already moving forward with, thanks to a newly annouced partnership with Pizza Hut, is pizza delivery.
Toyota plans to begin testing the vehicle, called the e-Palette, in the U.S. beginning in 2020. But early this year, it will join forces with Pizza Hut to learn more about pizza delivery and improve efficiency and safety. The two companies will soon begin testing technology and monitoring driver data in existing Pizza Hut delivery vehicles.

In the future, the e-Palette could not only be for delivering pizzas, according to Pizza Hut, but also making them along the way.

Risk Management in the Food Industry: Who’s Really in Charge?

March 8th, 2017
All along the food chain — from producers and processors to retailers and consumers — safety risks exist. Food is susceptible to contamination at many points in its journey. For food processing plants, this means it is necessary to establish and maintain strict, proactive practices for safe food production and handling. But, ultimately, who’s in charge of this effort? Where does responsibility for food safety risk management reside?

It’s critical to understand who’s really accountable in terms of managing your plant’s food safety risk. Is it one person or many? Is it a single department or the entire company? In this article, you’ll uncover the answers to these questions and identify opportunities to strengthen risk management within your organization and at your facility.

Identifying the Responsible Parties
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly 48 million people suffer from a foodborne illness annually, including 128,000 who […]

The World’s Biggest Starbucks Has Augmented Reality

December 8, 2017

Starbucks has made its latest and biggest outlet even bigger, with augmented reality.
The coffee giant will on Wednesday open its new 30,000 sq ft premises in Shanghai, its biggest outlet in the world to date.

So to take new visitors through the more complex processes, it’s released an AR app that will deliver a tour of store’s equipment.
For example, pointing your phone at the copper cask will show you exactly what happens after your beans get transported there, complete with a video of what happens inside the cask.

Subway

The Brand
SUBWAY™ was founded by Fred Deluca and Dr Peter Buck who opened their first restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA in the summer of 1965.

Concept
As a SUBWAY™ franchisee you are entitled to establish and operate, from a single location, a retail establishment preparing and selling Foot long and speciality sandwiches, salads and other food items. All SUBWAY™ restaurants are required to adhere to the SUBWAY™ standards and policies regarding food preparation and food safety.
