Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) October 26, 2012

The Bread Manufacturing industry in Australia has been faced with challenges, beginning with the low-carbohydrate craze generated by the Atkins Diet in the early 1990s. For ten years, Australians cut back their carbohydrate consumption, which negatively affected demand for bread. However, the emergence of the health- and nutrition-conscious consumer, driven by timely and clever product innovation, has stimulated demand for bread and bakery products over the past decade. In 2012-13, industry revenue is forecast to increase by 3.1% to $ 3.01 billion. Over the past five years, revenue is estimated to have increased by an annualised 2.7%. The existence of a large number of small and medium-size establishments (such as retail and specialty bakeries), combined with mostly homogenous products and a high level of competition, has caused industry profitability to decline. According to IBISWorld Industry analyst Naren Sivasailam, fierce volatility in commodity prices over the past five years has dampened industry growth prospects and squeezed profit margins. However, the industry’s major players have been able to post revenue growth due to the strength and longevity of their brands. Despite the use of labour-intensive production methods, the ratio of wages to revenue has declined steadily as the result of rising automation and capital investment across the industry.

The prospects of the industry, modest as they may be, do present some niche growth opportunities. The functional and fortified bread segment is expected to drive demand as consumers become increasingly time-poor and health-conscious. Wholegrain and fruit- or nut-infused variations of traditional bread and bakery products will also be popular. The increase in demand for specialty breads will drive growth in niche and artisan bakeries over the next five years, says Sivasailam. IBISWorld forecasts that industry revenue will grow over the next five years.

The Bread Manufacturing industry in Australia is typified by a medium level of market share concentration. The industry is dominated by its two largest players: Goodman Fielder and George Weston Foods (Food Investments). Concentration increased as a result of increased growth for some major players and an increase in merger and acquisition activity. However, increasingly uncertain operating conditions have caused the major players to scale down their operations, and the industry has returned to being more fragmented.

IBISWorld industry Report Key Topics

This industry consists of establishments mainly engaged in the manufacturing of bread, as well as breadcrumbs, bread rolls, fruit loaves, and leavened bread. Bread can be leavened by the addition of baking soda, baking powder, yeast, or salt to produce a lighter product. Unleavened breads are those prepared without leavening agents (e.g. flatbreads are unleavened).

C12 70 CEO Roundtable

C12 70 CEO Roundtable
Event on 2012-11-13 09:00:00
C12 Christian CEO Roundtable Collaborative Forum

 

ATTEND FIRST MEETING FOR FREE…

 
Is one day per month
– set aside to be intentionally strategic in focusing ON your business with the intent of developing your top and bottom lines, organization and ministry impact – as much focus as you truly need to attain ‘best-in-class’ leadership?  No, but amazingly, the discipline and sustained focus which such a monthly day provides via the C12 Process results in a breakthrough for most Christian business leaders and owners.  Leaders often confuse busyness with progress and fail to strategically develop their business, products, markets and outreach with long-term purpose and vision in mind!  C12’s extensive, seven-year curriculum of customized, highly-targeted materials (‘by Christian CEOs for Christian CEOs’), combined with carefully-selected supplemental resources and affiliates, often results in sharply enhanced general management leadership. More than just a Christian CEO roundtable, C12 members minister to each other via transparent discussion and prayer.
 
Biblically, we are called to diligence and wise counsel, not the hard work and busyness which we often fall victim to in our personal efforts to achieve ‘success’.  In Proverbs alone we are exhorted 22 times to seek wise counsel!  Working successfully, according to principles which are eternally true, enables an approach to leadership which is compatible with life balance and capacity for ministry.  With this in mind, C12 is firmly founded on three pillars, each of which have proven to be effective over many years and in many circumstances: Scripture, small group process dynamics, and one-on-one mentoring.
 
Scripture
is God’s special revelation to His people for their benefit in living lives of purpose and fruitfulness consonant with His will.  The other two pillars are easily seen in Scripture as mechanisms which God ordains to sharpen His people and which secular ‘academians’ have observed as useful in practice.  Small group dynamics enable the best overall input to be distilled from a group of experts with diverse backgrounds, gifts and experiences.  This mirrors the instructions which Christ gave to His church (The Body in Ro 12, 1 Co 12, Eph 4, Col 2:19) and has become viewed as a fundamental leadership tool (i.e., synergy, Drucker, mastermind/brainstorming methods, etc.).  Likewise, mentoring and/or coaching has gained great currency in recent years as folks have discovered its benefits.  The humility to truly engage in balanced mentoring (i.e., sharing the truth in love) is rare outside the Lordship of Christ.  A clear part of New Testament history (consider Paul, Barnabas, Timothy, Silas, John Mark and others), mentoring has now come to be appreciated in its various forms (peer, up & down).  C12 utilizes each of these three pillars – in addition to well-researched ‘best-in-class’ contemporary examples, case studies, and the mirror of self-assessment – to provide its members a practical and effective development curriculum for themselves and their companies.
 
The C12 Group monthly process, meeting format and resources have been carefully tailored over the years to deliver significant life and business-enhancing impact for members who engage with both high levels of expectation and personal commitment.  As a Christian CEO roundtable and an interactive peer community of believers, the effective functioning of group relationships relies on the stability, timeliness and understanding which accompany faithful attendance and transparency.  C12’s proven materials and process do work in challenging, inspiring, equipping and ministering to members who participate in a faithful manner.  The individual strengths of each C12 Area Chair may help to further supplement C12’s baseline materials, but these materials, combined with the Holy Spirit’s enabling of each member, routinely provide a noteworthy value-added difference to member Christian business owners or CEOs.  For C12 Group members, the monthly eight-hour process roughly breaks down into the following elements:                 
            

Devotion/Prayer/Fellowship – 40%

Executive Education – 25%

Coaching/Accountability – 25%

Peer Forum/Sharpening – 30%

          
         
The simple discipline of receiving relevant objective input on our roles as leaders, spouses, parents and children of God is priceless in breaking age-old habits and attaining new levels of excellence and fruitfulness.  The ability to bring timely issues and an annual in-depth ‘Core Business Presentation’ (see C12 Tri-Value Model) before a knowledgeable and intimate peer group, with literally hundreds of years of combined executive experience, is an uncommon privilege. The wisdom of each group’s prior ‘lessons learned’ and a healthy reliance on God’s Word and prayer, gained in a safe and confidential environment, is a great resource for the Christian business leader.  Linking each month’s learning with ‘To-Do List’ accountability, an annual in-depth analysis of the overall personal and business development, and performance provides a fundamentally sound equilibrium process, and an uncommon focus on strategic planning which benefits C12 members no matter the stage or shape of their business/industry.
 
    

C12 Christian CEO Roundtable Agenda                  One-on-One Coaching

 

God’s Sovereign Provision Delivered at Just the Right Time!
 
At any point in time, roughly one-third of C12 members fall into one of the following three categories:  (1) thriving, (2) complacent/stale or (3) struggling.  Amazingly, C12’s peer process, materials and mix of members operates like the inter-connected parts of the Body in a good church with each playing a vital role in ministering to the rest in a spirit of unity.  Those who are thriving may be at risk of living lives of imbalance, busyness, materialism and diluted witness.  They may be tempted to seize further share or scale advantage via rapid expansion, acquisition, added fixed cost/debt or otherwise complicating their situation in ways which might lack wisdom and balanced judgment.  Others may be complacent, stuck in long-term habits and satisfied to continue doing things the way they always have, in spite of fresh opportunities and/or serious changes in industry dynamics (remember buggy whip manufacturers and candle stick makers?).  They may slowly lose the opportunity to gracefully manage a strategic transition, develop a stronger organization or market position, and may squander their chance to effectively steward the company toward a successful future legacy.  Those who are struggling mightily in their business or personal lives will find strength in C12 peer relationships and hope in the Lord to be indispensable during this time of great trial.  C12 has witnessed countless examples of such members persevering, ‘pressing on’ and ‘renewing their strength’ on the way toward long-term revitalization and victory.  In every case, the Lord uses the life experience, faith and wisdom resident in the peer group, C12 materials and Scripture to produce a synergistic result beyond that which the individual Christian Business Owner or CEO might attain independently!

hidden niches
by gnuckx

Question by XD: Is there something wrong with me psychologically?
I know this is rather long…bear with me here!

Recently I have observed several peculiarities in my behavior that may or may not be potentially worrying. Some have been here forever, some have escalated of late, but I’m wondering if they altogether mean something. Do they?
1. I have taken a large interest in blood and such. Every time I myself start bleeding, I stare at it and smile and unnerve those around me. I have caught myself wondering if it is possible to cut the backside of my hand in order to view the bones. Likewise, I took an interest in the veins in my wrist, wanting to watch the blue blood turn red. As soon as I recognized both impulses I stopped myself
2. I have trouble caring about people when I am not physically with them. I have no impulse to see my friends outside of school, and that results in me having little life to speak of. An example of this behavior would be my ex: for the most part, I never think of him, but when I’m in the same room with him, he consumes my thoughts.
3. At random times, set off my the slightest things, I become terribly depressed and seek out a dark corner or other niche to hide in. This feeling is difficult to dispel, but wearing dark clothes and listening to metal always manages to cheer me up in a few days.
4. Sometime I find myself staring into the mirror, talking. I create in my head a friend and have a conversation with them — I prefer talking to my versions of people to talking to the actual people, because it is easier my way.
5. My moods drastically alter my general disposition: my voice, speech patterns, and overall decisions can change so much that when communicating via phonecall or text many people that I am very familiar with have been convinced that twas not me on the other end.
6. I have a strong aversion to blending in, as well as to staying constant. One day I may dress as a goth, the next I’ll keep my hood up, the next a prep, the next a normal girl, blending in with the crowd. I also have a tendency to love that which others hate: freezing temperatures, spiders, even people.
7. I also get bored somewhat easily, and am prone to completely changing the topic in the middle of a conversation.
8. When I get annoyed by something, such as an unrequited crush or a stressful project, I manipulate my mind so that I no longer care about that person how I did, or that project doesn’t concern me. This practice has served me well, but my friend tells me it’s unhealthy… Is that not normal?

Do I have a reason to be worried?

Best answer:

Answer by strider
Hello.
Yeah I believe that you do. You should go seek out counseling. Some of the things you mentioned are normal but a person should not normally be consumed by them. Some things that you talked about sound to me to be spiritual, and as such you need spiritual counseling but at any rate you need help. I hope you go and seek it out.
