Irish biscuit firm enjoys Japanese success

first_imgGrace’s Traditional Irish Biscuits are now being stocked in Japan following an internet inquiry.Shamrock-shaped shortbread and oatmeal biscuits supplied by the company, based in Bangor, Co Down, are available at the Osaka-based Otomo Shoji range of shops.Grace’s Traditional Irish Biscuits was established in 2004 by managing director William Bullock, who has extensive experience in international markets, with the aim of creating a global food brand based in Northern Ireland.Bullock said: “We were approached by Naoko Yamaguchi, the managing director of the family-owned retail business, which has around 100 outlets in Japan.“She was searching for traditional Irish biscuits to add to their portfolio of quality UK brands and was intrigued in particular by our distinctive shamrock shape of premium shortbread and oatmeal products.“We air-freighted some samples to her and she placed an initial order for both products. Repeat business has followed because of the success of the biscuits with Japanese consumers. It’s tremendously encouraging for us to see our products on the shelves in a leading Japanese retailer.”Bullock said Grace’s Traditional Irish Biscuits was growing strongly because of a “strategic focus on building sales in global markets”.He added: “Grace’s biscuits are now sold in the US, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as throughout the UK, where we recently secured business from major retailers, including Morrison’s and Booth’s, and the Republic of Ireland. In addition to the shamrock biscuits, we are growing sales abroad steadily for our Irish breakfast tea, traditional butter fudge and the range of Titanic brand jams.”last_img read more

Where to Catch Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda When He Leaves the Historic Hit

first_imgLin-Manuel Miranda in ‘Hamilton'(Photo: Joan Marcus) View Comments Hamilton When we see it coming, do we run or do we let it be? As Hamilton has taught us, all wonderful things eventually have to end; mastermind and star Lin-Manuel Miranda is poised to leave the tuner this summer. But fear not, Hamilfans. Like the smash hit about the ten-dollar Founding Father, the certified genius is here to stay, both in our hearts and in the headlines. Here are seven ways history will keep its eyes on Miranda after he exits his hit show.Making Disney Magic in MoanaIn collaboration with Frozen composer (and EGOT-er) Robert Lopez, Miranda has penned music for the upcoming Disney film Moana. Newcomer Auli’i Cravalho will voice the animated feature’s title star, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will play a mighty demi-god named Maui, so we’re already stoked. Moana will hit theaters in November 2016.Stepping in Rhyme in Mary PoppinsIt’s a clean sweep for Miranda, who will be a practically perfect with Into the Woods star Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns. (Unrelated: We’re totally confident he could make a killer “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” remix.) The sequel is scheduled for release on December 25, 2018.Back In the HeightsHarvey Weinstein has acquired the rights to The Heights, and Pulitzer winner Quiara Alegría Hudes (and the Seinfeld to Miranda’s Kramer) has a new screenplay of the story. In the Heights will not hit the big screen for a bit, so start that Usnavi dream-casting now!On the Other Side of the PondFollowing Billy Elliot’s electric run at the Victoria Palace Theatre, Hamilton is set to fill the stage. The venue’s owner, Cameron Mackintosh, plans to refurbish the house, and the mega-producer and Miranda are taking a shot at bringing the tuner to the West End in 2017. Miranda is also aiming to join the cast in 2018 or 2019. See, guys? It’s fine, we’ll just all move to London. After all, King George knew we’d be back!Bringing Ham to the Big Screen…in Two DecadesRaise a glass—or a popcorn bucket! Miranda is moving into the cinema world, and Hamilton will eventually blow audiences away at movie theaters. Emphasis on “eventually,” kids. Miranda recently said there would be a screen adaptation: “Someday. Probably not for, like, 20 years.” We’re willing to wait for it!Making a Cameo in Speech & DebateThe Humans’ scribe Stephen Karam’s off-Broadway comedy Speech & Debate is also getting the silver screen treatment—and the release date seems like it’ll be a bit sooner than Hamilton or In the Heights. Austin McKenzie, Sarah Steele, Skylar Astin and Rogert Bart are just a few of the other Broadway faves you’ll be able to catch in this flick. The Dan Harris-helmed film is slated for release later this year.Rubbing His Butt on All of His AwardsSeven Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards, two Grammys, two Tonys (and four 2016 nominations), an Emmy, a Pulitzer, an Edward M. Kennedy Prize—Miranda should add “Award-Butt-Rubbing Expert” to the top of that stacked resume. He certainly has a plethora of accolades to choose from. (The Broadway.com Audience Choice Award is obviously the fave for butt rubs.) from $149.00center_img Related Shows Star Files Lin-Manuel Mirandalast_img read more

Camelot headlines Tattersalls list

first_imgLast year’s dual Derby hero Camelot tops five Aidan O’Brien-trained possibles for Sunday’s Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh. The four-year-old, who also won the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket last season, was struck down by colic after his run in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe but reappeared this season with a straightforward win in the Mooresbridge Stakes. Also in the mix for the Ballydoyle team is last year’s Oaks winner Was, along with El Salvador, Windsor Palace and Ernest Hemingway. Al Kazeem has been given the green light to travel over by his trainer Roger Charlton after a good piece of work on Monday. Writing on his website, www.rogercharlton.com, the Beckhampton handler said: “We do not have many runners during the week, but Al Kazeem worked impressively with his lead horse over seven furlongs yesterday and he remains an intended runner at the Curragh on Sunday, where he is likely to meet up with the mighty Camelot in the Tattersalls Gold Cup.” Dermot Weld’s Ribblesdale winner Princess Highway could still run, despite disappointing in the Blue Wind Stakes last week. David Wachman’s Aloof and Joanna Morgan’s Negotiate are the other possibles. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
