Name: BOB BUCKCompany: FWP MATTHEWS Job title: TECHNICAL SALES MANAGER Location: BEDFORD6amI’m naturally an early riser. I got into the habit as a 17-year-old school leaver when I first joined the baking industry. At 6am the alarm goes off, but I’m usually up already. I catch up on the news, have my first nicotine hit of the day and make sure I know the traffic news, as I’m out on the road pretty much all day. Breakfast is a strong coffee and scrambled eggs with a hand-baked baguette. The bread is the healthiest part of my morning! 6.50amI’m in the car and starting the first journey of the day from my home in Bedford with my new best friend, the Road Angel, which is a satellite navigation system that also tells me when I’m near a speed camera. Mid-mornings are always the best time to visit bakeries due to bakers’ early morning schedules. I cover the whole range of customers, from small retail bakers to large manufacturers, and I aim to have at least five appointments a day. Sometimes I’ll drive past a baker I’ve never come across, pull over, drop in a card and a brochure and get talking.I was in Newcastle earlier this week and opened a new account that way with someone interested in our imported French flours. It’s funny, but I’ve never had a situation where someone has said “not interested” – not once. In my experience bakers will usually give you time and, if they can’t, they’re happy to make a future appointment. 10amI’m visiting Earl’s Court Olympia in London for the Organic Products Europe exhibition, which is held every year, and where we are exhibiting our flours. Around 60% of our business is organic, so the show gives us a good opportunity to make new contacts with manufacturers that are interested in moving into organic production.10.40am I get a wonderful lead from one visitor – a muffins and cakes manufacturer, which supplies the multiples, based in London. He is looking for an organic muffin mix – something that is, as far I know, not yet available on the market. We are seeing demand for organic flours grow and there are definitely untapped niches in organic morning goods, cakes and muffins. I arrange a meeting again to discuss how to take this forwards, and start thinking about sourcing organic ingredients suppliers to develop the idea.12pm After my visits, I have lunch. Mostly I am lucky to be able to taste the bakeries’ wares; otherwise I have to get my wallet out! Like most people, I watched the calories after Christmas, but this was not helped by having to sample the wonderful products in the bakeries I visit. I have a soft spot for croissants, made with flour from French miller Moul-bie, which we supply. Moul-bie’s speciality French flours produce breads and pastries that even a Frenchman would die for! 1pm My afternoons pretty much follow the same pattern each day, unless I’m in our Cotswold office in Chipping Norton. Normally, I pop into the office once a week, although I’ve got my laptop up and running now – yeehah, at last! So it’s likely to be once or twice a month from now on. As bakers tend to work nights and early mornings, I spend afternoons making appointments for the following weeks. I also drop in to see potential customers or visit existing ones to see how they’re getting on. I’m fortunate as I’m an experienced baker myself, so I can help with any technical questions. 2pmI make a few calls to remind customers of the range of conventional, organic, French and Danish flours that FWP Matthews supplies. I like to be able to deliver the odd bag of flour, if a customer has a special requirement, and the afternoons are the best time to drop anything off.3pmThis is a good time to spot any retail opportunities for pre-packed flour. In the spring, we launched a new 7.5kg pack size for our Cotswold flours for breadmakers, so I need to make sure all customers know about this. While driving between customers, I’m reminded of the people back in the office. They tease me about my car and my Nigel Mansell tendencies (hence the Road Angel). My car has lots of fancy extras, including Bluetooth, but I must admit to being a bit of a technophobe. Now I’m used to it, the laptop is great and I keep all my contacts as well their notes on it. I’m even getting into sending emails!4.30pmTowards the end of the afternoon I have time to discuss other opportunities, such as bakery demonstration days and any free technical visits required to bakeries from the Moul-bie team of expert bakers. The French side of our business is on the up. It offers something different to the independent baker and something to fight back with on the high street. People go to France, they sample the authentic breads from a boulangerie, and they’re delighted if they can find those breads in a British bakery when they come back home. It’s something the supermarkets don’t do and speciality French breads offer good margins too.6pmAfter a busy day, I get back home to Bedford, update the database and reply to my emails. As it’s a family-run business, Paul and Graham Matthews like to have a daily report to keep them up to date on everything I’ve done that day. I also use this time to research new areas and customers, for which I’m a fan of Google and Yell.8pmAs well as baking, I enjoy all aspects of cookery and often entertain in the evenings. I’m a flight simulator addict and can spend a few hours on the computer recreating my childhood fantasy of being a pilot. Although I love the food industry, flying is a passion of mine and, on the longer summer evenings, I book flying lessons. I have busy days but I’m also going to squeeze in some extra gym sessions as the nature of my job means I’m sitting (and eating) for a lot of the day.11pmAfter catching up with friends and family, I turn in, ready for another early start.
Baking cases producer Chevler has installed a specially designed reel-fed machine capable of producing over 250,000 muffin and cupcake cases an hour.It forms part of an on-going investment programme for the recently formed South Wales-based firm, enabling it to cope with increased demand from bakers and food manufacturers. Managing director Stuart Whelan commented: “It has taken three years to develop during which time we have continuously improved every aspect of our production process.” He added that developing bespoke machinery was vital to meet its customers’ demand for new products.Chevler was formed in February this year after a management buy-out by four senior executives of Chevler Packaging, who consolidated all operations onto a single site in South Wales, and established a new production facility next to the existing plant.* Chevler is a sponsor of National Cupcake Week and a sample pack of the company’s coloured cupcake range is available free to all bakers.

Topics : With the help of his girlfriend at the time, Wardlow held up an elderly man, Carl Cole, in a bid to steal the man’s truck.The 82-year-old Cole fought back, and Wardlow, then 18, shot him in the head.The fugitive couple tried to flee Texas for Montana, but were caught in South Dakota after a 15-hour drive from the small Texas town where the crime occurred.In the Lone Star State, jurors on capital cases are required to establish if the accused would pose a future danger before handing down a death sentence. The US state of Texas on Wednesday executed an inmate convicted of murdering an elderly man during a 1993 robbery — ending a five-month halt to executions due to the coronavirus crisis.Billy Joe Wardlow, 45, was pronounced dead at 6:52 pm local time (23H52 GMT) after being given a lethal injection at the penitentiary in Huntsville, prison officials said. His attorneys had filed an 11th-hour appeal with the US Supreme Court, but it was denied. Wardlow’s attorney, Richard Burr, had argued that his client was too young for that determination to be made with any “scientific certainty,” and had filed for a stay of execution.Burr said research had shown that “because of continuing brain development until sometime in our early 20s, the neurological basis for a person’s character, and hence his or her character, is not fully formed prior to the age of 21.”A 2005 decision by the US high court abolished capital punishment for those who committed murder at the age of 17 or younger.Wardlow’s attorneys had argued that there is no discernible neurological difference between a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old, but to no avail.In a written confession in February 1994, Wardlow said: “Being younger and stronger, I pushed him off and shot him right between the eyes. Just because he pissed me off.”At trial, he recanted that confession and said he intended to use the pistol stolen from his own mother to intimidate Cole, not kill him.Wardlow’s execution was initially set for April 29, but was pushed back to Wednesday because of the COVID-19 pandemic.As with every execution, a significant number of people are involved: prison guards, witnesses, the inmate’s loved ones and the victim’s relatives.Wardlow is the seventh death row inmate executed in the United States since the beginning of the year, and the third in Texas.The last execution in the US took place in May 19 in Missouri, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.Texas has not carried out an execution since early February.
