Pack food and drinks in this sustainable Lunchbox set!
Charlie and the chocolate factory is an iconic story that both kids and adults alike love. One may have read Ronald Dahl’s creation, the novel of 1964 that become a bestseller, or the 1974 movie starring Gene Wilder as the infamous Willy Wonka, or the most recent one, Tim Burton’s reimagination of 2005 box-office hit of 2005 that has Johnny Depp as the chocolate chocolatier. Every person has a favorite from these magical stories and today, here I am presenting the set of NICA'S Lunchbox and a Thermos of 2005 Charlie and the chocolate factory edition. This set is a must for the fans of the franchise as it has a lot of characteristics that not only make it a memento of the film but a gift or thing that is useful in real life. The lunchbox features: •            The design What I absolutely adored about this metal box is that the design is not all kiddish. It has the main character of the movie, Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka it is printed on both sides but the colors and the illustrations are not done in a way that only children could use it. People, especially the fans of the story, will like it and have no problem or embarrassment while carrying it, no matter the age. •            The quality of the printing. Coming to the judge on the printing process, on a scale of 10, I would definitely give it a 9. The main reason being that in my past experiences I’ve seen that most of the metal-made objects lose their illustrations or artwork as they get scrubbed, washed, and whatnot. But even after the use of many months, the printing has not all gotten off. •            Sustainability As I have already pointed out, I have been using this for a long time now and I’m very happy to say that not only the company has done a good job on the printing but a fine work on their quality inspection as well. The metal doesn’t get bent or scratched easily and the food inside does stay warm for a good amount of time. The drink container/thermos: •            Now, we also get a Thermos with our package and I am pleased to announce that it is amazing in terms of the artwork, quantity hold, and material as well. •            I loved the fact that the picture of the Willy Wonka chosen is different on the lunch and the drink container is different. In this Thermos, we get a more close-up shot of Johnny, and that gives the whole set diversity. •            The lid of the Thermos is like the one that can act as your cup and since the material is spot on, you can pour either very hot or cold beverages in it and it wouldn’t affect the cup at all. I would highly suggest checking out another website to sell stuff other than eBay for other gift sets that people would love to receive.
How COVID-19 Impacted on Amaranth Oil Market in Food & Beverages Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on Amaranth Oil Market in Food and Beverages Industry The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the whole planet with its major impacts on the economy and businesses across the globe. The COVID-19 spread worldwide in unprecedented ways due to its high infectious and contagious nature and lack of availability of its vaccine. As a result, the greatest medical challenge in the 21st century is yet to be faced by physicians worldwide. Though the emergence of the virus can be traced back to Asia, many European countries along with the U.S. have been struck massively by the pandemic. The virus has spread across all regions ranging from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa up to South America. The COVID-19 has been declared as a pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO) due to its increased spread across the globe. After the declaration of the pandemic, various countries announced the complete lockdown such as India, China, and other Asian countries to decrease its spread. According to the latest situation report by World Health Organization (WHO) stated 175 million cases of Corona have been reported globally and 4 million patients are dead due to the coronavirus. On a slightly positive note, a total of 158 million people have recovered and a total of 2 million vaccine doses have been administered as well. Amaranth oil industry has been impacted due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. As many production and manufacturing plants were closed due to lockdown, the shortage of raw material directly decreases the availability of oil products as per the preferences unlike before. The revenue generation by the company decreased due to lockdown as the demand for non-essential products decreases, therefore it leads to a decline in growth of the amaranth oil market. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly hit the nutritional progress of consumers across the world. The persistence of the COVID-19 for a longer period has adversely affected the most vulnerable groups of the population. From a business perspective, COVID-19 is significantly decreasing commercial activity, particularly in the consumer sector. However, consumer demand for various oils has increased as interest in overall health and wellness has grown. Due to the implemented highly restrictive mass quarantines which have affected many markets and their economies, the first half of the pandemic phase shows a great decline in the sales and market of amaranth oils due to restrictions on going out and closing of retail stores as V-Mart, and Big Bazaar among more. The key reasons for the growth of the amaranth oil industry before the COVID-19 pandemic include an increase in demand for essential oil and rising demand for the medicinal oil market. The increase in concern of health disorders has promoted healthy lifestyles and food-specific diets which are expected to give a boost to the global amaranth oil market. The post-pandemic period will see a significant increase in amaranth oil consumption, which will ultimately fuel the demand growth during the forecast era. Owing to the latest guidelines by the government which looks to ease several services, retail availability of branded amaranth oil should improve. Restoring demand for food, biological products, and cosmetics suggests a lucrative growth for the amaranth oil market after the viral epidemic is over. In addition, global market players are focused on forming alliances and partnerships to offer superior quality goods in the marketplace. Despite the huge demand for food after a pandemic, however, shutdowns are anticipated to impede the amaranth oil market growth for a considerable period. IMPACT ON PRICE Due to COVID–19, the price of amaranth oil has been widely affected. The shortage of raw material supply has increased the overall prices of amaranth oil due to the high demand and low supply. Limited availability of amaranth oil and increasing demand have further augmented the prices, which has also affected the prices of amaranth oil-based products such as cosmetics, aroma products, food supplements, and others. IMPACT ON DEMAND COVID-19 has highly affected the demand of the amaranth oil market as amaranth oil has high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids. The ingredients which help fight aging, protect against the sun, are anti-inflammatory and help hydrate the skin. Squalene is an important moisturizing agent for the skin. There is an increase in demand for plant-based products during the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19. New consumers are emerging and adopting amaranth oil for boosting their immunity and also food supplements made from amaranth oil are widely adopted to improve overall immunity. Amaranth oil has a high concentration of antioxidants and phytosterols, so, it has been associated with several health benefits, including reducing inflammation, lowering cholesterol levels, and increasing weight loss. The leaves are low in saturated fats and have micronutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin B6, folate, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese. These substances provide many benefits health benefits to the body which are essential to improve immunity during the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, The COVID-19 crisis caused a historic decline in global oil demand but not necessarily a lasting one. Achieving an orderly transition away from oil is essential to meet climate goals, but it will require major policy changes from governments as well as accelerated behavioral changes. Without that, global oil demand is set to increase every year between now and 2028. IMPACT ON SUPPLY The supply chain has been affected more due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Manufacturers are not being able to clear the old stock in the inventory and not able to manage the future demands of the amaranth oil in several industries which are impacting the demand of the global market. Due to the lockdown, there is a shortage of supply as most of the laborers are not working due to the pandemic situation and companies are not able to supply their products on time. The growing demand for amaranth oil due to healthier aspects has a positive impact on the global amaranth oil market. According to trade organizations in the nutritional products industry, there is a significant impact on many points in the global supply chain for natural oil and plant-based products including amaranth oil. COVID-19 has affected the centers of the global value chains, causing highly impactful disruptions that determined ripple effects throughout all phases of the supply chain, from production to processing and distribution. The triggering factor of all such consequences is the containment measures adopted by national governments to limit the spread of the coronavirus, which caused drastic paradigm shifts. Due to the lack of raw material and labor in the pandemic situation, the demand for amaranth oil could not be fulfilled. Such panic-buying is exacerbating supply chain bottlenecks and driving cultivators to order more cultivation supplies in anticipation of continued demand for amaranth oil. Plant-based products such as amaranth and olive oil are facing supply chain disruptions due to less availability of labor, improper and slow supply of ready products for export, etc. Thus, the effect of COVID-19 on the supply chain of amaranth oil is severe. AMARANTH OIL MANUFACTURERS AND INDUSTRY LEADERS: PERSPECTIVE & INITIATIVES COVID-19 outbreak has affected every sector in the market which also includes the amaranth oil market. The industry has been affected as the supply and demand are badly disrupted. Many companies are losing their key revenue sources as food services outlets are closed or decreased their sales. Some companies have closed their production facilities to mitigate potential risks from COVID-19 during the first and second quarters of 2020. Many amaranth oil companies are taking initiatives during COVID-19. Companies are adapting to the unprecedented challenges posed by the quickly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and take steps to ensure we are operating safely. Companies continue to assess the situation daily and take actions in an abundance of caution to maintain business continuity while focusing on the safety and health of our customers and employees, including: · Maintaining the supply chain, this has had minimal impact on company’s ability to serve their customers with continued supply reliability · Implementing contingency plans at production locations and working with suppliers to ensure continued operation without disruption · Increasing our distribution capacity, adjusting hours of operations, and positioning our inventory to replenish products from alternative locations · Ensuring customer service and logistics organizations are fully operational as they work remotely Several manufacturers in the global amaranth oil market are also coming forward to help each other in terms of finance as well as other market parameters to not only save the market scenario but to save themselves from the brutal grasp of the pandemic. CONCLUSION Pandemic has taken a toll on every aspect of life, including the global economy. With the significant downfalls in many sectors, a collaborative effort of government, industry players, and consumers can win the fight against COVID-19. In 2020, COVID-19 caused the high demand for oils such as amaranth oil to enhance their immunity. People are taking precautions to fight the COVID-19 situation and continue to maintain their immunity levels at higher rates by the usage of plant-based products for health. Plant-based oils are helpful to the immune system from such infectious diseases. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in demand for amaranth oil to treat or prevent illness as well as usage in the cosmetic industry due to its vegan nature. Thus, there is an impact on COVID-19 on the global amaranth oil market up to some extent. It continues to inflict the world with appalling economic and social dilemmas, capable enough to leave severe backlash on the economy for the next several years. The first wave had already inflicted severe blows to the population as well as the economy. The currently experiencing the second wave is expected to be more disastrous not only to the masses but also to food and beverages markets. The lockdown in various countries affected the import and export of various products that create the shortage of supply and due to the increasing demands of amaranth oil; there can be a price hike in various amaranth oil products.

Travel Singapore: 6 Dishes You Have to Try!
I just got back from Singapore which was basically just me eating everything in sight for 4 days straight. Here are 6 things I had a loved, but keep in mind there are a billion other things you have to try there as well! (Not listed: chili craaaaaaaaaaab!!!!!!) Pictured above: Teh O Limau (black tea with lime!) 1. Murtabak Murtabak is a super tasty dish from the Middle East that I could probably eat every day. You can get nearly any filling you want (we chose one Chicken and one sardine) and it will be wrapped up in a delicious bread similar to na'an or paratha. We got curry to dip it in and it tasted fantastic! 2. Fish Ball Soup For the unadventurous or those who avoid spice, this fish ball soup is perfect. If you find that traveling gave you an upset stomach, this simple broth with some onion, noodles, and a few balls made from fish will have you feeling better in no time. Serious comfort food. 3. Carrot Cake Carrot cake is my favorite thing on this earth. Rather than carrots, it is made using radish that has been pounded into a soft almost noodle. Think gnocchi, but with radish! It's then fried up with egg and chilis, then (if you get black carrot cake) tossed around in some soy sauce. It's DELICIOUS. 4. BBQ Sting Ray The dish to the left is bbq string ray, the first thing I ever ate in Singapore. Its a fishy taste covered in a really awesome chili sauce. Once I got the fact that it was sting ray out of my mind, it tasted just like any other fish I love eating! 5. Popiah See that egg roll looking thing? That's popiah. At first I expected something like the Filipino dish lumpia, but it is so much sweeter than that. These spring rolls are common in Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia and are filled with fresh veggies. You can get them spicier, but they'll always have a distinctly sweet taste to it. 6. Kaya Toast (with Teh O) Made from a mixture of coconut and egg (which I just found out last week, after years of eating kaya...) Kaya jam is one of the yummiest things you can spread on toast. Traditional kaya toast has kaya and a few thick slices of butter sandwiched between two freshly toasted slices of bread. Usually its also served with soft boiled eggs which you can add soy sauce to. Get your kaya toast with some kopi or teh o (black coffee or black tea) to start your day right! I also tried Salted Egg Yolk Croissant, since salted egg yolk ANYTHING is a huge deal in Singapore right now. And to be honest, I really didn't like it. It tasted like what happens when you make icing and add too much powdered sugar. It was really dry and didn't even taste like salt or egg at all. Maybe it's not supposed to and I'm missing the point, but I wasn't a fan :/ Have you ever had Singaporean food? What's your favorite?!

Confession: I'm Addicted To Trying Strange Asian Foods.
Hi, my name is Dani, and I'm a foodie - but only when it comes to all things weird. As those of you who participate in my weekly So Good Or No Good food game, I'm always interested in talking about gross food combinations and dishes that, well, require a certain kind of palette. I thought it might be fun to create a list of strange international foods I've tried that maybe other people wouldn't be into - some left me wanting seconds, and well, others definitely had me running to the bathroom. Have you tried any of these? Century Eggs (China) Century eggs - also known as pidan - get their name because they are soaked and preserved for long periods of times (traditionally, several months) before they're eaten. What normally looks like a regular white and yellow boiled egg turns into translucent black with a consistency kind of like Jell-O. I thought these were surprisingly delicious. Once you get over the fact that the eggs are black and have a different smell than a normal hard-boiled egg, you'll find that it's still really tasty! Pork Dinuguan (Philippines) Dinuguan looks like a pretty unassuming stew with a color is reminiscent of a Mexican mole sauce, but the taste couldn't be any more different. It's made with anything from standard pork to more questionable parts like the lungs, kidneys, intestines, ears, heart, or snout, and it's all simmered in pig blood. As far as this one's concerned, I was able to make it through a few bites, but the texture and the heavy iron-flavor of the jellied pig blood sauce really grossed me out. (However, my Filipino friends insist this can be SUPER delicious, so I'm waiting for their moms to make me some!) Yukhoe (South Korea) There's really not much to explain when it comes to yukhoe. It's ground raw beef served with raw egg and a variety of seasonings. Sometimes it's served as you see in the picture above, and other times, it's over rice with an assortment of vegetables as 'yukhoe bibimbap'. Yukhoe is actually really delicious! First, I was scared because there's so much 'NOPE!' here, but yukhoe is served cold, so the beef flavor is mild. Also, the seasoning does a good job of keeping you from feeling like you're shoveling raw hamburger meat in your mouth. (Make sure you're ordering yukhoe at a reputable place so you don't get sick!) Natto (Japan) Natto is a fermented soybean dish that is traditionally served at breakfast. With a stringy consistency and a strong odor, it's known to be an acquired taste - even within Japan! Natto is often served plain, but you can also see it rolled up onigiri-style. I couldn't get past the first bite or two plain, but I will say that eating it with soy sauce and mustard (which is often provided when you order natto), definitely helps you get it down. Yeah, this was a once-and-never-again dish for me. Zhū ěr duo (China) Zhū ěr duo is a popular Chinese appetizer of sliced braised pig ear, commonly served both hot or cold. The outer skin is chewy and soft, while the strip of cartilage has a crunch that might be unfamiliar to people trying it for the first time. Personally, I felt like the texture took me a bite or two to get used to, but once I had, I actually found pig ear to be pretty good! I don't know if I could eat a whole lot of this, but it's really nice as an appetizer. Dalkbal (South Korea) Dalkbal is a dish popularly served as something of a pub snack in South Korea. It's chicken feet prepared in a spicy sauce of red pepper paste and sesame oil. Overall, it's light and meaty, but definitely has plenty of crunchy cartilage inside. Dalkbal is super spicy! I don't think I realized I was such a heat wimp until I tried it for the first time. The cartilage gets in the way of it being anything close to filling, but it's a great snack, especially for you beer and hot wings types. So now I want to know about the unusual foods YOU'VE tried. Share your own stories! Is there a food in your family's culture that a lot of people outside of it wouldn't be into? Are there strange foods you were scared to try, but actually liked eating a lot? Let us know in the comments below!
