Azelis and CP Kelco further strengthen their partnership and expand in the Nordics for the food and beverage industry

Azelis appointed exclusive distribution partner for all CP Kelco products sold into food and beverage applications in the Nordics

BELGIUM, May 8, 2019 / — Azelis is delighted to announce it has signed an agreement extension with their strategic partner CP Kelco, a leading global producer of nature-based ingredient solutions, for the exclusive distribution for CP Kelco products sold into food and beverage applications in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands. Effective 23 June, 2019 this new mandate, that includes pectin, carrageenan, gellan gum and SIMPLESSE® micro-particulated whey protein concentrate, follows on the existing cooperation of CP Kelco and Azelis in parts of Europe and Asia.

Highlight & rationale

• Azelis is appointed exclusive distribution partner for all CP Kelco products sold into food and beverage applications in the Nordics.
• The new mandate is an extension of the existing distribution agreements that the two companies have had in parts of Europe and Asia for many years.
• Azelis’ strong technical expertise, proven track record of growth, innovation focus and good onboarding track record have all contributed to CP Kelco’s decision to expand the partnership.
• The new agreement with CP Kelco is in line with Azelis’ strategic ambition to expand existing partnerships into new territories.

As a long-term distribution partner of CP Kelco in parts of Europe and Asia, Azelis has demonstrated a steady organic growth, stimulated by its strong formulation expertise. Azelis’ innovation capabilities together with its proven onboarding track record were key aspects for CP Kelco to choose for Azelis.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Azelis into the Nordic markets,” said Niels Thestrup, Vice President, EMEA Region for CP Kelco. “Together, our organisations are committed to deliver value-added solutions and services to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. We are excited about the support of a strong partner like Azelis to help customers and formulators develop new applications with our nature-based ingredients.”

Anna Bertona, CEO & President, Azelis EMEA, adds: “Strong technical expertise is a key element of Azelis’ offerings to customers. High quality ingredients from a market leader such as CP Kelco complement our current portfolio range in the Nordics, enabling our technical application team to offer the best possible solutions to customers. At the same time, it allows us a better access to segments in the food industry like fruit, dairy, beverage and confectionary.”

Azelis has 16 food and nutrition application laboratories located around the globe, namely in Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, India, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Poland, Romania, Russia, Turkey, UK, and in Ukraine. Azelis’ ability to test products, develop concepts and supply to just-in-time delivery schedules makes it the chosen partner for many leading food and beverage customers.

Imprivata publishes new white paper on Digital Transformation in the NHS

Practical paper gives NHS Trusts insight into making Digital Transformation a reality from the Frontline to Leadership

The most successful projects are those that are led by the clinicians and care-givers, working in partnership with the technology vendors to ensure that the solutions delivered work for the NHS Trust”

— Daniel Johnston MRes, RN, Clinical Safety Specialist & Officer, Imprivata

LONDON, UK, May 8, 2019 / — Imprivata®, the healthcare digital Identity and access management company, has published a new white paper entitled: Digitally transforming Health and Care in the NHS – A practical guide. The white paper outlines the benefits of Digital Transformation (DX) and gives practical demonstrations of how DX has helped Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and the role of Global Digital Exemplars (GDEs), and closes with recommendations for planning, implementation and evaluation of DX in health care.

Author of the white paper, Daniel Johnston MRes, RN, Clinical Workflow Specialist & Clinical Safety Officer at Imprivata said; “The NHS has arguably reached a crossroads where it is embarking on a paradigm shift in culture in order to deliver 21st century care to the population as described in the Topol Report and deemed necessary in Dr Watchner’s report. Empowering clinicians and care-givers with technology is a major component in achieving this. When it comes to DX we have seen time and again that the most successful projects are those that are led by the clinicians and care-givers, working in partnership with the technology vendors to ensure that the solutions delivered work for the NHS Trust, the workforce and, perhaps most importantly, for the patients.”

Imprivata recently partnered with the GDE Nursing & Midwifery Learning Network and the Chief Nursing Information Officer (CNIO) Network which held its inaugural meeting in Cambridge on 20 March. The CNIO Network is a new initiative designed to provide a platform for the Nursing community to share experiences and learn from each other, particularly around the practical aspects of digital transformation.

Johnson added; “The Nursing workforce is a huge and influential group within the NHS. If DX is to be fully realised and the merits of technology are to directly benefit patients, their families and frontline care providers, then nursing leadership require significant opportunities to invest in staff development and deployment of new technologies to successfully deliver innovation in the clinical setting.”

Olympic Marathon Pioneer, Lynn Petronella Announces Mother's Day Is Every Day Campaign

World’s Greatest Achievement Medal

Activist works to empower women as well as men so families are strengthened

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 8, 2019 / — As part of an world-wide celebration of birth, Olympic marathon pioneer, former Olympic coach, and author, Lynn Petronella, has chosen mother's day week to launch an international tribute to mothering and womankind.

Her platform first caught the attention it needed in February, 2008, when Michelle Obama and Angelina Jolie were presented with 'The World's Greatest Achievement Medal.' Petronella says the award honors the sacrifice and dedication of mothers who bring the greatest gift of all, life.

Each medal is a 1.5" and 24CT, gold-plated. The design of a mother and a laurel wreath makes it a replica of the medal given to winners of running events. On the back is a place for the name, date, time and weight of the child to be engraved as a keep-sake and gift.

"Birth is a miracle. It's royal because as a baby is delivered, its head naturally crowns," explained Petronella. In honor of Prince Harry's and Meghan Markle's royal child, and every child that is born, we celebrate Mother's Day, every day."

Petronella added that "The most profound athletic act a woman can do is give birth. My goal is to honor women who birth, raise, educate, and cope with the demands of motherhood with innovative, gold medal and other products. Twenty percent of all sales are donated to women and children charities."

"Lynn continues to galvanize the miracle of motherhood," stated Fran Briggs, Publicist to Lynn Petronella. "Her aim is to empower women as well as men so families are strengthened."

Hollywood actress, Keira Knightley, spoke to the marathon-like difficulty of raising a child. “I don’t think we give women enough credit for the physical and emotional marathon they go through when becoming a mother.”

The idea for the medals came to Petronella while she was training for the Olympic marathon. She said the childbirth process inspired her to honor something greater than winning a grueling, world-class, marathon. The gold medals and other items available to commemorate mothers are available at


Lynn Petronella heps women and children achieve their dreams. She is the author of Know Where to Run: An American Odyssey"(Amazon), a former world-class runner, and one of the world's first, female marathon running pioneers. Lynn was scheduled to represent the United States in the first women’s marathon at the 1980 Olympics. The games were boycotted. Lynn then coached Joan Benoit Samuelson. She won the gold medal in 1984. Lynn is an author, speaker, and advocate for equality for women in and out of sports. She resides in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Home Prices to Continue Rising in 2019

Key findings from the 2019 REMAX Housing Market Outlook Report estimate that the average price of a home will increase by 1.7 percent this year in Canada.

BARRIE, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 8, 2019 / — If you are in the market to buy a home, you may be aware of rising interest rates which are affecting housing affordability this year. In fact, key findings from the 2019 REMAX Housing Market Outlook Report estimate that the average price of a home will increase by 1.7 percent this year alone. These rising interest rates may make it difficult for Canadians who are hoping to purchase homes this year — so what does this mean to you as a prospective buyer?

Let’s look at the numbers across Canada:

Atlantic Canada

In 2018, Halifax and St. John’s saw a rise in housing costs. The rising number of retirees has driven up sales in the condominium market, while oil price drops have actually created a buyer’s market. It is predicted that activity will pick up later this year.

British Columbia

With a reduction in foreign buyers in Vancouver’s condo market, more opportunities have opened up for local buyers. In 2018, the average sales price for residential properties in British Columbia increased by two percent from $1,030,829 in 2017 to $1,049,362 in 2018, but sales dropped by a whopping 30 percent. This is expected to bring average sales prices for residential homes down by 3 percent this year.


Edmonton has seen a decrease in the average sales prices for residential properties from $393,003 in 2017 to $379,539 in 2018, although it has seen a growth spurt in the luxury market. In Calgary, oil and gas prices are expected to flatten out the market. Winnipeg has seen an increase in prices from $315,720 in 2017 to $323,001 in 2018, and prices are expected to rise by up to 4 percent. Immigration to Winnipeg from urban centers is expected to drive sales this year, while Regina and Saskatoon are expected to have a good buyer's market this year as well.


Rising interest rates coupled with the mortgage stress test affected Toronto’s market this year, with sales prices dropping from $822,572 in 2017 to $789,181 in 2018. The resale condo market represents 37 percent of residential sales, and sales prices for residential homes are expected to go up by 2 percent this year.

In Ottawa and London, residential sales prices grew, and this is expected to continue throughout the year. Buyers in Ontario are finding it increasingly more difficult to enter the market due to the stress test and rising interest rates, particularly for Millennials.

Contact Stuart Clelland Today!

With the introduction of the mortgage stress test and rising interest rates, it is likely that more Canadians will struggle with affordability in the housing market this year — particularly in Ontario. Overall it is predicted that the average sales price of residential property in Canada will increase by 1.7 percent. What does this mean for you? If you are considering buying this year, then you need to take the right steps. I can help you find your dream home for the price you want while taking your personal preferences, budget, and needs into consideration. With over 30 years of experience helping customers buy a home in Barrie and in the York Region & Simcoe County areas, I consider it a privilege to help my clients reach their housing goals. Don’t let rising home prices scare you away! Contact me today so that I can help you find the home of your dreams!
