Travel food giant SSP Group has seen like-for-like sales up 3.2% thanks to passenger growth in the air sector.On a constant currency basis, revenues for the food operator also increased 4.1% in the same period, from 1 April 2015 to 30 June 2015.At actual currency rates, given the strengthening of sterling against major European currencies compared with the prior year, total group revenues decreased by 0.1% year-on-year.The company said: “While, as always, a degree of uncertainty exists around passenger numbers in the short-term, the group remains well positioned to capitalise on the underlying positive trends in its markets.”SSP operates around 500 brands globally in travel locations, including Upper Crust, Starbucks, Millie’s Cookies, Caffè Ritazza, Burger King and M&S Simply Food.
Topics : Researchers from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) and Zoologische Staatssammlung in München, Germany, have discovered four new beetle species in North Maluku.The four new beetle species have been identified as Epholcis acutus, Epholcis arcuatus, Epholcis cakalele, and Epholcis obiensis. The Epholcis genus is a nocturnal beetle.The beetles were found through joint collaboration between LIPI researcher Raden Pramesa Narakusumo from LIPI and Zoologische Staatssammlung researcher Michael Balke during an exploration of the Maluku islands. Pramesa said two of the beetles were named based on their physical appearances, acutus means “sharp edge”, while arcuatus means “bow-like”, referring to the species’ curved back leg. The cakalele beetle is named after a traditional Maluku dance, and obiensis is named after Obi, the island where it was found. Pramesa also explained that the researchers used classic taxonomic methods to identify the species as new discoveries. He said that Indonesia had a lot of potential for new beetle species discoveries. Currently, most beetle specimens are kept in the Zoologicum Bogoriense Museum in Bogor, West Java. (dpk)
