Helping Seniors Feel Less Isolated and More Connected

YourUpdateTV

The ongoing pandemic has increased the likelihood that seniors feel more isolated, making tech-savviness both essential and a determinant of health. Recently, Senior Director at Care.com, Jill McNamara, teamed with YourUpdateTV on a satellite media tour to discuss the importance of getting seniors actively engaged online through technology. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/nNHYsVdQjZY The COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge our aging population in numerous ways. They are feeling more isolated than ever and helping them stay engaged and socially connected has never been more important. According to Care.com’s 2021 Senior Care Outlook Survey, while aging in place remains their preference, the prolonged crisis has increased their desire to have more help at home. This results in a dire need to hire help with tasks within the home, such as meal preparation and light housekeeping.

This is why Care.com, the world’s leading online platform for finding family care, and GetSetUp, the largest social learning platform that helps older adults learn new skills and have new experiences, are collaborating to offer live online caregiving classes, such as how to find and pay for the care they need.

iTradeNetwork Introduces OrderMaestro - Turning Best-in-Class Order and Inventory Management into Revenue for Foodservice Operators

iTradeNetwork

iTradeNetwork, the food and beverage industry’s largest network with over 8,000 food and beverage trading partners, is proud to announce the launch of OrderMaestro - a new mobile solution that streamlines and automates order and inventory management for foodservice operators. OrderMaestro enables foodservice operators to create a branded ordering experience across all of their organizations and locations - providing critical business visibility and insights that increase productivity, reduce costs and drive revenue growth. Since the pandemic, foodservice operators are experiencing more challenges than ever before. Operators are facing unprecedented labor shortages and product supply chain issues - and with thousands of locations, distributor relationships and numerous manual ordering processes to manage, they are forced to do more with less and less. Without a centralized procurement platform in this increasingly complex supply chain, it’s impossible to manage business operations. This leaves foodservice operators with so many unanswered questions: Are your units maximizing spending on preferred products? Are you missing out on rebates? Are you failing to see major contracting opportunities? Whether operating 15 or 5,000 outlets, operators today need an e-commerce solution that is easy to use and scales with their business - one that streamlines communications, addresses supply chain challenges, ensures price and purchasing compliance, improves visibility and control over the supply chain, and ultimately maximizes profitability for their organization. About OrderMaestro OrderMaestro is a branded ordering experience that makes it easier than ever for operators to manage all of their units on a single mobile platform. With the look and feel of your business, it is designed to meet your specific needs and goals. Operators can control order guides across units, auto-generate orders from history and user-defined templates, and build configurable workflows to streamline PO approvals - but that just scratches the surface of OrderMaestro’s capabilities: Effortless Onboarding in an Intuitive, Easy-to-Use App: With widespread labor shortages, onboarding is top of mind. OrderMaestro requires no formal training, so new users will be submitting POs and taking inventory in minutes. Don’t Get Shorted, Before Placing an Order: With today’s on-going supply chain shortages, it’s hard to ensure that the products you order are actually in stock. With OrderMaestro, operators can save hours of time and costly reorders. Users can check inventory with Distribution Centers prior to ordering a product to confirm availability and order replacement products when needed. Seamless, better than Amazon Ordering Experience: OrderMaestro revolutionizes foodservice procurement with the Universal Shopping Cart. Users can place orders with multiple suppliers using a single shopping cart. Offline Inventory Management, Built for Real Working Environments: Leave time-consuming, manual inventory management on remote desktops behind. Now, users can take inventory from a mobile device in any environment, online or offline. The app automatically syncs when internet or cell service is restored. 3-Touch “Scan-to-Search” Smart Barcode Scanning: Place an order or take inventory in as little as three clicks. OrderMaestro’s barcode scanning and voice recognition functionality allows users to auto-populate product information right from their mobile devices. Real-time Collaboration: Communicate in real-time through in-app messaging and save the hours you spent on phone calls and emails. Share targeted announcements with units, regions, or organizations, and alert individuals to act quickly on PO changes, complete with audit trails. Earn Big with In-App Vendor and Product Promotions: Create new sources of revenue and build stronger relationships with suppliers through in-app promotions. Get rid of excess inventory quickly, promote rebate programs, run holiday and seasonal promotions, and more. Visibility and Analytics to Reduce Costs and Drive Revenue Growth: Operators can now access invaluable insights that will power business decisions and drive revenue growth. Discover the percentage of purchases that are under contract, find opportunities to rebate revenue, and so much more. “We’ve created a best-in-class solution that works for our users and with our users,” said Wills McMahon, senior product manager at iTradeNetwork. “We’ve added features like voice and text search, barcode scanning and offline synchronization to automate as much of the ordering and inventory process as possible.” “OrderMaestro’s insights will change the way our customers manage their businesses,” said Nathan Romney, chief product officer at iTradeNetwork. “We are thrilled to give our customers the powerful insights they need to optimize their current operations, make smarter business decisions and ultimately increase revenues.” The OrderMaestro mobile app is currently available for foodservice operators on the Apple and Android app stores. The app will also soon be available on tablets in the coming months. About iTradeNetwork iTradeNetwork, Inc. is the leading global provider of supply chain management solutions for the food and beverage industry. Built upon deep industry expertise, a rich data foundation and the industries’ most extensive trading partner network, iTradeNetwork’s collaborative solutions allow distributors, manufacturers, operators, retailers, suppliers, and wholesalers of all sizes to reduce cost, grow revenue and strengthen trading partner relationships.

SURVEY FROM FARM FORWARD SHOWS WHOLE FOODS MARKET SHOPPERS ARE BEING MISLED BY GLOBAL ANIMAL PARTNERSHIP “WELFARE” LABEL

Farm Forward

Think you can buy a humanely raised turkey at Whole Foods? Think again. With Thanksgiving menus in mind, consumers looking for the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) label in Whole Foods Market may be misled about the animal welfare standards within the grocers’ marquee certification program. A new survey by Farm Forward shows the vast majority (88%) of respondents were incorrect about or didn’t know whether GAP means that animals are raised on pasture (of the 88%, 58% were wrong, and 30% responded that they didn’t know). Most chickens and turkeys raised under GAP are not required to have outdoor access. “Whole Foods’ GAP label creates more confusion than clarity,” said Ben Goldsmith, chief strategist for Farm Forward. “GAP is the largest third-party animal welfare certification in the US, yet it deceives shoppers into paying more for meat, poultry, and eggs that appear more humane and sustainable, when, in reality, many are still factory farmed.” A Desire for Consistent Outdoor Access Previous survey work has demonstrated at least 79% of Americans expect humane labels to guarantee broad welfare improvements, including outdoor access. Virtually all respondents (91%) in Farm Forward’s new survey were incorrect about or didn’t know whether GAP labels mean that animals are given consistent access to the outdoors (of those 91%, 62% were wrong, and 29% didn’t know). Thirty-nine percent of respondents believed that the GAP certification mark meant that animals were given consistent access to the outdoors. In comparison, 60% of respondents said that this should be the case. Nearly half (45%) of US shoppers expect welfare labels to guarantee that animals are raised continuously on pasture. Unfortunately, only the most stringent labels achieve this standard, and those labels are often difficult to find, let alone distinguish. GAP Allows Genetic Modification American shoppers do not understand that GAP certification allows genetic modification for extremely fast-growing birds, who often suffer heart and lung ailments and struggle to walk by the time they reach slaughter age. Nearly 40% of survey respondents replied incorrectly that the generic GAP certification means that animals were not genetically modified to grow unnaturally quickly, with 55% believing that it should be a requirement. Halo Effect Humanewashing benefits the lowest welfare meat producers at the expense of the highest welfare meat producers. Moreover, this “halo effect” helps not only Whole Foods’ own worst meat producers, but also brands at other retailers that use certifications with even lower standards. This would be like a coal company with LEED-certified headquarters; the halo of the company’s eco-friendly headquarters creates a false sense that all of the company's activities are eco-friendly, which in turn casts the entire coal industry in a more positive light. Humanewashing makes it impossible for consumers to make good, fully-informed choices when it comes to purchasing high welfare animal products, even at trusted retailers like Whole Foods, and impossible for highest-welfare farmers to distinguish their products on store shelves. Be Prepared to Pay Consuming higher welfare turkey will cost you, which may be especially difficult for American shoppers to stomach this year because of higher food prices across the board due to supply chain issues. The average price of a Step 1 turkey from a modified factory farm at Whole Foods Market is $1.49 per pound, and a Step 5 turkey (which actually meets most consumers’ expectations about welfare) could cost five times as much per pound. The National Turkey Federation reports that 88% of Americans – nearly 293 million – say they will be eating Thanksgiving turkey this year. That equates to more than 46 million turkeys being eaten at Thanksgiving and an additional 22 million consumed at Christmas. Test Your Humane IQ To help consumers test their knowledge about animal welfare certifications, Farm Forward has created a short Humane IQ quiz. Survey Methodology All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 1219 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 3rd - 7th September 2021. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all US adults (aged 18+). ### About Farm Forward Farm Forward works to improve the lives of more than 400 million farmed animals annually. Since 2007, its mission has been to end factory farming by changing farming, changing policy, and changing the stories told about animal agriculture.

Fine Fragrance House LilaNur Parfums Launches in US Market

LilaNur Parfums

India is alive with scent; from the aromatic rose fields of Aligarh, to the jasmine fields of Tamil Nadu and the peppery spice gardens of Kerala, dozens of exquisite ingredients used in fine fragrances are cultivated in these regions, stretching over centuries, back to the time when India was famed for its art and sophisticated use of perfumery. Still, there has yet to be an exceptional fine fragrance line from India; until now. The launch of LilaNur Parfums as India’s first luxury fragrance house, celebrates the country’s abundant flora and olfactory riches, expressed through the lens of French master perfumery. Born in Madurai and crafted in Grasse, LilaNur Parfums is India’s scented love letter to the world. The story begins with Anita Lal and her deep fascination with the vivid colors and heady scents that punctuate everyday life across the subcontinent. She founded Good Earth, India’s leading design house in 1996 to celebrate the designs and stories of India. It has been Anita’s dream to create a fine fragrance brand based on the authenticity of Indian ingredients, modern perfumery expertise and the reintroduction of the sensual tradition of scenting with Attars; perfumed-oils. In Paul Austin - who Anita commissioned to help her create LilaNur Parfums - she found a kindred spirit with a love for Indian flora and deep expertise in international perfumery and brand development. Formerly the Senior Vice President for the Fine Fragrances division at Givaudan, he founded Austin Advisory Group, an award-winning creative agency focused on storytelling and the senses, while on a research trip to India in 2009. LilaNur Parfums embodies his dedication to spotlighting the terroir of natural ingredients, and his admiration for the beauty, craft, and cultural traditions of India. The story of LilaNur Parfums began in the fragrant flower fields of Southern India, where the house soon forged a deep relationship with the proprietors of Jasmine C.E., India’s largest source of floral absolutes for the international fine fragrance industry. These Indian flowers - distilled and extracted for use by the world’s most renowned master perfumers - are grown and harvested by a community of 5000 women. Propelled by Anita’s belief that community is at the heart of culture, and at the heart of India’s floriculture are the communities of flower growers and harvesters, she established the Rosabagh Foundation. Its mission is to help sustain the livelihoods of this community by initiating various social impact programs aimed at enhancing the quality of their lives and providing access to social enterprise. By pairing agricultural expertise and extraction know-how at the source, along with perfumery expertise from Grasse, LilaNur Parfums was able to develop each scent with an unbroken and traceable line from cultivation to creation. The LilaNur Parfums range includes seven Eau de Parfums and three alcohol-free, oil-based scents, called Attar Absolus. For the Eau de Parfums, four of France's most revered perfumers - Honorine Blanc, Olivier Cresp, Fabrice Pellegrin, and Clément Gavarry - each with a shared passion for the fragrance culture of India - were invited to compose a scent using iconic Indian ingredients as their muse and starting point. Six of the Eau de Parfums have been composed around Indian ingredients such as Jasmine Sambac, Tuberose, Rose Centiolfia, Vetiver, Davana, and Agarwood. The seventh Eau de Parfum - named Incarnation - embodies the design dialogue between India and France. Attars are a uniquely Indian scenting tradition used for centuries to scent the body and enrich the soul. LilaNur Parfums has collaborated with the Firmenich Naturals Innovation Group in Grasse to develop a modern attar formulation using a proprietary infusion process in which pure floral absolutes and sustainably sourced sandalwood are macerated together for over 100 days. The result is a collection of Attar Absolu oils that are unparalleled in their purity, intensity, and luminosity when glossed onto the skin. LilaNur Parfums is available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman and lilanur.com. Prices range from $275 (100ml Eau de Parfums) to $420 (30ml Attar Absolus). “True luxury is in the details of everyday living. It is in being surrounded by pure and natural scents and materials that have been handcrafted and thoughtfully designed to engage the spirit.” - Anita Lal, Founder LilaNur Parfums For more information on LilaNur Parfums, visit lilanur.com or find them on Instagram @lilanurparfums ### CONTACT: Laura Schroeder; BPCM lschroeder@bpcm.com M: 631-885-2464 Contact Details BPCM Laura Schroeder +1 631-885-2464 lschroeder@bpcm.com Company Website https://www.lilanur.com/
