The doors of the restaurant at 3882 Union Deposit Road are scheduled to open as early as the week of October 26. The company said it is filling 80 year-round positions for front and back of the house, including servers, hosts and line cooks.

Last year, the chain’s owner, P.J.W. Restaurant Group, announced it was bringing the restaurant to the former TGI Friday’s at Dauphin Plaza. It expected to open in early 2020 but the coronavirus pandemic pushed back the opening.

Jim Fris, the chain’s chief executive officer, said last year the chain is gradually moving west in Pennsylvania. It opened a restaurant in Chester County in 2010 and has added several more in the county followed by restaurants in Reading

Victory’s biggest challenge is making sure people were aware that New Orleans bars close no later than 11 p.m. under the city’s Phase 3.1 guidelines.

NEW ORLEANS — Bar and restaurant owners said they were pleased to see foot traffic after many of them were closed or had their businesses capacity limited by local and state mandates to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Saturday marked the first day New Orleans city leaders moved into Phase 3.1, a modified gradual move into Phase 3 that the rest of Louisiana has already implemented.

Tourists from Mississippi, Texas and elsewhere lined Bourbon Street waiting for their chance to get a to-go drink, something made available again for the first time on Saturday.

“Thank God that it came out 3.1 was starting,” Daniel Victory who owns Victory Nola in the Central Business District said.

Victory Nola has been closed because of the pandemic.

Importance of traceability infrastructure in the food supply chain

Torri Donley

Food safety as a concern has become an important topic of discussion across the world. Consumer awareness and demand has propelled many nations to adopt a systematic regulatory framework to make supply of food, food handling, and procurement safer.

Agriculture has seen much advancement in recent times to make food sustainable, safe, and viable while delivering high quality produce. Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Maximum Residue Limits (MRL) are two factors that ensure food that is consumed is not contaminated.

Additionally, to add accountability, farmers are made completely responsible for their produce. In most developed countries, maintaining GAP and MRL is a norm that is strictly adhered too.

In India, post-independence, the concern was more around food security rather than food safety. The aggressive export of the country’s natural produce left India in a severe food deficit situation, which was especially surprising considering that agriculture was the leading occupation.

Restaurants and pubs without outdoor catering facilities are set to close as all of Ireland moves into Level Three of the Living with COVID strategy.

On Sunday evening, it emerged that the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) advised the Government to implement Level Five restrictions throughout the entire country in response to the rising COVID-19 infection rate.

However, the Government is likely to reject the NPHET recommendation, instead moving every county to Level Three restrictions.

Remote Auditing For Food Safety Verification

Torri Donley

Digitizing expert advice and services is more important than ever, with this phenomenon innovating practices in the food industry. Verifying that food safety practices are being held to the highest standards is integral to the global food system and human health. And while food safety relies on straightforward principles, its verification requires a complex system of specialists and auditors to ensure processes are practiced consistently and appropriately to mitigate risks of microbial or chemical contamination. With Covid-19 curbing travel and in-person interaction, physical audits of food production environments have been challenged.

Certification bodies, like GlobalG.A.P. and trade associations like United Fresh, are working with their members to navigate meeting food safety verification needs while keeping auditors and personnel safe. And even though auditing is more difficult now, physical visits are still occurring. 

“In the United States, the vast

New Range of Nutritional Energy Drinks and Protein Bars for Casual and Professional Gamers and ESport Athletes launched on Indiegogo

Torri Donley

The ESports Nutritional (ESN) Energy Product Range is Created Specifically to Provide Professional and Casual Gamers with Healthy Alternatives to Sugary Sodas and Unhealthy Junk food Diets.

Professional gamers and ESport athletes are notorious for spending 12 or more hours in one spot, playing various games. Even tournaments are known to go on for hours. Often, gamers will turn towards fatty junk foods because they are high in sugar and give an energy burst that helps them fuel.

Another reason gamers turn eating junk food is that they’re looking for something quick and filling to eat before they go on their next adventure in the gaming world. In such instances, junk food options are usually the only alternative that they turn to. 

However, ESN introduces a range of nutritional products that can do all that but in a healthier manner. Their patented HAX formula is developed to help improve cognitive

4 Pet Stocks Catering to Stay-at-Home Trends

Torri Donley

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

It took a moment, but investors figured out that pet stocks should be a beneficiary of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Indeed, the ProShares Pet Care ETF (BATS:PAWZ) has rallied 35% so far this year. It’s soared 91% from March lows. The gains make some sense.

After all, amid “stay at home” orders, pet adoption increased worldwide. In fact, many U.S. animal shelters were emptied. But the industry has more than just a short-term tailwind behind it.

Pet ownership has been growing for years. But, importantly, so has spending per pet. The “humanization” of pets, as pet food manufacturer Blue Buffalo memorably termed it, has been going on for years. Each year, pets get better food, better medicine, and improved veterinary care. Pet spending didn’t decline even during the Great Recession.

As a result, major investors have targeted the
