Born & Bread: Wrights Food Group, Stoke-on-Trent

first_imgWith their origins in a terraced house, the popularity of Wrights’ pies has grown continuously, with the company now making multi-million pound investments and launching sub-brands.The Wrights story began in 1926 in a terraced house in Stoke-on-Trent, home of John (Jack) and Elisabeth (Lizzie) Wright. Jack had worked as an engineer in the RAF and, after the war, trained as a butcher.Lizzie was a fine cook who made excellent pies. After a day’s work Jack would visit the market to buy meat and vegetables, using his experience as a butcher to choose the best cuts, and he’d take them home to Lizzie. Jack and Lizzie sold pies to their neighbours and soon customers were queueing outside the front door.As the popularity of the pies grew, Jack decided to dedicate all his time to the business, making enough profit to open the couple’s first shop in Shelton. From then they continued to grow and opened shops in Hanley, Burslem and Tunstall.Lizzie died in 1935 and, though heartbroken, Jack continued to devote himself to the business. He found love again with Lillian (Lilly), and they married three years later.  Lilly took it upon herself to learn the original recipes to ensure the product quality was consistent. When Jack died in 1962, there were six shops and outlets, and Lilly continued to run the business with their sons, Peter and David.Peter’s son, also called Peter, joined the company in 1982, starting as a trainee engineer before moving into the production side of the business and then into sales and marketing, finally becoming the current chairman and chief executive. The time came that the company needed to innovate and diversify, and following extensive research and the introduction of new legislation, Peter decided to introduce frozen, unbaked savoury goods. It was quickly a success and, today, accounts for around three-quarters of the total business.A £6.5 million factory opened in Crewe in 1999, and the old factory became the premises for making frozen confectionery products. This meant that Wrights could produce up to 900,000 donuts a week and 30 million cookies each year, but despite modern machinery, the team continue to hand craft the more intricate cream cakes and eclairs to add a personal touch.In 2014, Wrights commissioned a new 50,000sq ft bakery and invested a further £6m in an automated bakery that was officially opened in 2016, and is capable of producing more than 5 million savoury products every week. The business now supplies its range of products to many of the UK’s restaurant brands, food service distributors and independent bakers, as well as 26 over-seas export markets.Last year the business launched two sub-brands: Sheaf Street Bakery, which was created following Wrights’ acquisition of supplier Premier Catering; and Urban Bistro, which supplies food-to-go in vending machines.Timeline1926: Jack and Lizzie Wright start selling pies from their home.

In Rio to be the greatest! – Bolt

first_imgTo some, he might already be the greatest athlete, but six-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt says he won’t feel comfortable tagging that title to himself until he delivers another triple-gold performance at the Olympic Games.With the Rio Olympics just a matter of months away, Bolt, who added that he has been training well after recovering from an ankle bother, told The Gleaner that he has been pushing himself in an effort to ensure he’s in the best condition to do something special and remove any doubts about his spot on the totem pole of sporting greats.”This Olympics mean the world to me. This is the moment I personally can say I am the greatest athlete, so for me to go there and do well is also for some bragging rights for myself; for me to be comfortable in saying I am the greatest (athlete), to have accomplished what I have always wanted to accomplish, and that’s to win three Olympic gold medals three times over,” Bolt said.”It’s really hard, but I know what it takes to be a champion. I have to just push myself. This is my last Olympics, so I’m really focused. I really want it, so I’m just pushing myself, working hard, and hopefully, my coach will give me the go-ahead to compete soon,” added Bolt, the fastest man ever over 100m and 200m.gold medalsBolt won gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympic Games.”I am looking forward to it and I am determined to do great things, so I am putting in the work,” he added of his anticipation of competing in Rio.”All I’ll say is I’ll go out there and do my best. This is what I do, so as always, you can look out for the best from Usain Bolt,” said Bolt.The sprinter turned down the chance to add to comments made by American athlete Alysia Montano, who called for her compatriots Tyson Gay and Justin Gatlin, who have both failed drug tests, to be banned from competing at the Olympic Games in Rio.”I don’t try to get mixed up with these things. I don’t make the rules, I can’t make that call or these things, it will cause a different level of uproar when Usain Bolt speaks out to something like that. I don’t like drama, so I will leave this up to the people who make the rules and have them decide what’s best for the sport,” said Bolt.Bolt is expected to compete at the June 11 Racers Grand Prix meet in Kingston before making another appearance at the London Anniversary Games in July.last_img read more

WebTV Comes To An End At Last

first_imgTags:#Microsoft#MSN#WebTV For all its flaws, WebTV and MSN TV did bring manage to introduce a fair amount of users to the mysterious world of the Internet, and as such, deserves a little show of love. Remember the days of dial-up Internet fondly, for it was these brave pioneers that would one day bring us LOLcats. brian proffitt A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Indeed it was, but this mainstay of the very early days of the World Wide Web will be shut down after an 17-year run, according to its owners, Microsoft, which had re-branded the service as MSN TV in 2001.The thin-client Internet browsing service, which provided Internet access via television sets, will be shuttered on September 30. Microsoft revealed the news in an e-mail to subscribers and an FAQ posted to its Web site.WebTV (later called MSN TV) started in 1996 with the goal to bring new people “online” and to give those already online an easy, hassle-free means of accessing the internet from the comfort of their homes. Later, MSN TV 2 was released with vastly greater power and features. Since then, the web has continued to evolve at a breathtaking pace, and there are many new ways to access the internet. Accordingly, we have made the difficult decision to end the MSN TV service on September 30th, 2013. We are working with our customers to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible.Users of the service, now dubbed MSN TV 2, will be able to access some of their content online using Microsoft’s existing cloud services. Favorites saved in the television web browser will be accessible via SkyDrive. E-mails and contact information will be available through Outlook.com.Photos will also be available on SkyDrive, but users will need to run through a few steps to make sure the photos will be carried over.All of this, of course, is contingent on users having Microsoft accounts, which is urged in the FAQ documentation.(See also The Rebirth of “Web TV”)At its launch in 1996, WebTV was actually a very forward-thinking way to get Internet access to users in a marketplace where PCs were nowhere near real penetration in the home. Use of the Internet, particularly the Web, exploded in the mid-1990s, after the National Science Foundation allowed commercial use of Web sites. But the expense of PCs in those days, not to mention the scarcity of dial-up services, made Internet use in the home a patchy affair.WebTV, with its integrated dial-up and a simple-to-use set-top box, made Web surfing at home a relatively painless process.
