Geographic Market Analysis

Europe will provide maximum growth opportunities for the vendors operating in the frozen food market during the forecast period. According to our research report, the region will contribute 39% of the global market growth and is expected to dominate the market till 2026.

The UK is the largest frozen food market in Europe. The increased demand for processed food products is driving the growth of the regional market. In addition, increasing number of consolidations through mergers and acquisitions, innovative marketing campaigns by vendors, and premiumization of frozen food products are driving the growth of the regional market.

Europe will also emerge as the fastest growing market for the frozen food market.

In addition, countries like the United States, Mexico, Chinaand Germany are expected to become significant markets for frozen food over the forecast period.

Analysis of key segments

By product, the frozen food market share growth in the frozen ready meals segment will be significant over the forecast period. The segment includes frozen pizzas, frozen pasta, frozen croissants, frozen Asian meals, frozen rice bowls, frozen noodle bowls, frozen crispy pancakes and frozen pies, among other products. The increasing availability of nutrient-dense frozen food varieties is driving the growth of the segment. See sample report to identify other potential segments and regions in the market.

Key Market Drivers and Challenges:

The frozen food market is mainly driven by the expansion of retail stores offering frozen food. The growing presence of supermarkets, hypermarkets and specialty stores has contributed significantly to the growth of the organized retail sector globally. This allows vendors and retailers to sell frozen food products such as frozen foods, frozen fish and seafood, frozen meat and poultry, and frozen fruits and vegetables. All these factors are expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

However, the health risks associated with the consumption of frozen ready meals will reduce the growth potential of the market. Frozen foods are stored at low temperatures to prevent spoilage and increase their shelf life. Frozen food manufacturers often replace healthier ingredients with cheaper alternatives. For example, nutrient-dense olive oil is often replaced with less effective canola oil, resulting in the loss of antioxidants found in frozen foods. Therefore, frequent consumption of frozen foods also puts consumers at risk of developing high blood pressure and other health problems. This growing consumer awareness is expected to reduce the growth potential of the market.

Langham Gaiters

They will be at the club on Friday, October 7.

Club spokesman Colin Jilks said: “Thomas ‘Spats’ Langham spent his childhood in Buxton and, inspired by his grandfather, started playing the ukulele as soon as his fingers were big enough, followed by the banjo at the age of ten.

“At 14 he was playing with the Hot Spa Stompers and the Ged Hones Dixie Boys, who encouraged him to take up the guitar.

“With the loss of exceptional pianist, Keith Nichols, in January 2021, remembered for his peerless rendition of ragtime and Fats Waller-style piano stride, these Spats Five Nickels musicians have come together to guard his memory and his live music with the jazz of the time played with the greatest authenticity and virtuosity.

The band includes: Spats Langham and Martin Wheatley, guitars/banjos; Michael McQuaid and Trevor Whiting, reeds; Richard Pite, tuba, double bass and drums.

“Martin Wheatley is a versatile musician specializing in banjo music from the Ragtime era to the 1920s. Two of the country’s finest vintage reed players are Michael McQuaid and Trevor Whiting.

“Whiting first learned the tenor horn in a school marching band, but at the age of eleven he heard recordings by New Orleans clarinetist Sidney Bechet and immediately decided to change his instrument, taking the clarinet and saxophone.

“Richard Pite is a drummer who specialized in 1920s and 1930s jazz styles. He also runs the Jazz Repertory Company which presents several concerts each year in London, celebrating great music and musicians from the history of the jazz.

The bar is provided by Riverside Brewery, doors open at 7:15 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

The Steyning Jazz Club meets at the Steyning Centre, Fletcher’s Croft, Steyning. BN44 3XZ.

ANN ARBOR – Enjoy a special dinner at the Blue LLama Jazz Club while supporting underserved youth and families in Washtenaw County.

On Tuesday, October 18, the Downtown Ann Arbor Restaurant and Jazz Club is hosting a benefit event for Mentor2Youth (M2Y), a non-profit organization that helps empower attendees through mentorship and positive habits.

“The work we do cannot be done alone. It’s important that people support local organizations like M2Y because we give underserved young people in our community essential resources and an opportunity to perform at their best. We hope that anyone interested in this event knows that their contribution is a bold step towards achieving their own goal. Even though the only goal we share is the love of food and the love of music, we can bridge the opportunity gap for an entire community of young people,” said M2Y Executive Director Darryl Johnson in a statement.

M2Y youth develop disciplined habits and opportunities through guided conversations with mentors, activities, guest speakers, and the game of chess. Parents in the area can get support through peer groups and community experts.

Event attendees can purchase tickets on three tiers. Each level features a three-course meal and a performance by Ypsilanti native John E. Lawrence.

Tickets cost between $150 and $500 per person and can be purchased on OpenTable here. Nearly 70% of ticket proceeds will go to Mentor2Youth’s mission, Blue LLama Jazz Club officials said in a statement.

The benefit dinner will take place from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

“We are excited to leverage our position as a downtown gathering place to connect influential organizations like M2Y with people who want to support community efforts. Many M2Y members are also our patrons, so this partnership gives Blue LLama a chance to give back to our community in a whole new way,” said Artistic Director Dave Sharp.

It’s a week full of surprises. Probably the most important was the free fall of the pound, as the market reaction to the new UK government’s “mini-budget” was overwhelmingly negative. Commodity currencies and the euro also came under pressure due to risk aversion.

The dollar became the strongest after the Fed’s hawkish rise, the massive sale of risky assets and the surge in Treasury yields. The yen just grabbed second place as Japan’s first such intervention since 1998 failed to reverse the tide with the greenback. The Swiss franc was the third strongest, further supported by its rally against the euro and the pound.

With a relatively light calendar ahead and the end of the quarter approaching, markets may have a break this week. But… never say never.

GBP/USD breaks free at parity after radial mini-budget

The pound was already under pressure after the Fed’s hawkish rate hike. The BoE’s decision to raise the bank rate by 50 basis points was not unanimous, with three MPC members voting for 75 basis points and one for just 25 basis points. But the freefall only took off after Finance Minister Kwasi Kwateng’s mini-budget, seen by some as the most radical since 1972.

Market reactions have been overwhelmingly negative to the plan. FTSE lost -1.97% on Friday and could barely defend the 7000 handful. its highest level since 2010. GBP/USD fell below 1.09 for the first time since 1985.

Investors believed the plan would push inflation even higher and the BoE would be forced to raise interest rates further to 5.50% in the money cycle, adding further weight to the economy. The combined reaction suggests lack of confidence in the government’s ability to handle bloated debt.

Although the fall in the FTSE has been deep, it is not yet the end of the world for the UK. The key medium-term level to defend is a 38.2% retracement from 4898.79 to 7687.27 at 6622.07. As long as this level holds, the highs and lows, while important, are seen only as part of a medium-term sideways pattern.

As for GBP/USD, it hopes to get support between parity and the 61.8% projection from 1.7190 (2014 high) to 1.1409 (2020 low) from 1.4248 (2014 high). 2021) at 1.0675. stabilize, at least for the first attempt. It is far too early to judge how far the current downward trend would extend. But if the parity is suppressed firmly, the next target could be a 100% projection from 2.116 to 1.3503 from 1.7190 to 0.9532.

Japan finally stepped in, but USD/JPY just limited

Another significant development last week was Japan’s intervention in the currency markets, the first act to support the yen since the Asian financial crisis of 1997-98. Japan intervened in mid-markets, but these actions were aimed at slowing the currency’s advances. The move came after USD/JPY hit a 24-year high and threatened to approach the 1998 high at 147.68.

While the yen rebounded after the intervention, there has been no follow-up buying against the dollar so far. USD/JPY uptrend remains intact with 139.37 resistance turned support intact. In other words, USD/JPY could still have another attempt at 147.68 to test Japan’s resolve.

A firm break of 139.37 will be an indication of a medium term top. But based on current market sentiment and policy divergence between the Fed and BoJ, there is little chance of breaking the next level of support at 130.38 in the foreseeable future.

Dollar and yields up, stocks down after FOMC

Moving on to the US, the Fed raised interest rates by 75 basis points to 3.00-3.25% as widely expected. The biggest surprise was found in the new economic projections, which predict that the interest rate will reach 4.4% by the end of this year and peak at 4.6% in 2023. But there is still room for improvement. room for a further upward revision of the policy trajectory in the December projection if high inflation persists.

DOW breaches previous low at 29653.29 to resume medium term correction from 36952.65 high. For now, the short-term outlook will remain bearish as long as the resistance at 31026.89 holds, even if there is a strong rally. The correction could aim for a 100% projection of 36952.65 to 26953.29 from 34281.36 at 26982.00, or even a 61.8% retracement from 18213.65 to 36952.65 at 25371.94, before the end.

The 10-year yield jumped to 3.483 to resume the long-term uptrend last week, and hit a high of 3.773. TNX is now close to the 61.8% projection from 1.343 to 3.483 from 2.525 to 3.847. There may be some consolidations below this projection level first. But either way, a fresh rally is in favor as long as 3.353 support holds. A firm break of 3.847 could lead to further acceleration towards a 100% projection at 4.665.

At the same time, it’s also worth noting that the 2-year yield rose 0.345 over the week to close at 4.212, hitting the highest level since 2007. The 2-year and 10-year yield reversal , at -0.51, is now the deepest since 1981, topping -0.43 in 1989.

As for the dollar index, it accelerated to close strongly at 113.19 as the uptrend resumed. DXY is now pressing medium-term channel resistance and two-decade channel resistance. It is also close to the 61.8% projection from 94.62 to 109.29 from 104.63 to 113.69. Thus, there is the prospect of further loss of bullish momentum and some consolidations.

But still, the break of the resistance of 109.29 become support is necessary to confirm the overshoot. Otherwise, a new rally will remain in favor. A sustained break of 113.69 will open the way for a 100% projection of 119.30, which is close to the psychological level of 120 and the 2001 high.

GBP/JPY Weekly Outlook

GBP/JPY’s sharp decline and break of 155.57 support suggests a medium-term top at 169.10. This came after several rejections by the long-term Fibonacci level at 167.93. Initial bias remains bearish this week for 150.95 support next. On the upside, minor resistance above 159.10 will turn the intraday bias neutral and bring consolidations, before initiating another dip.

Overall, the rejection by a 61.8% retracement from 195.86 (2015 high) to 122.75 (2016 low) at 167.93 suggests that the rise from 123.94 ( 2020 low) is over. A deeper fall would be seen until the 38.2% retracement from 123.94 to 169.10 at 151.84. Some support could be seen there to provide a bounce. But the risk will now remain on the downside as long as the resistance at 169.10 holds. Sustained trading below 151.84 will target a 61.8% retracement at 141.19.

Looking further ahead, as long as the 55-month EMA (now at 150.40) holds, the upside from 122.75 could extend further at a later stage. However, a sustained breakout of the 55-month EMA will confirm that all upside is over and open a deeper drop towards the 116.83/122.75 support area.

The New York Times states: “He comes from a line of drummers established by Kenny Clark, then modified by Philly Joe Jones; he’s more than comfortable with polyrhythm, but it’s the simple swing that suits him best.” His inspiring quintet includes the trumpeter Joe Magnarellialto saxophonist Justin Robinson, pianist James Austin and bassist David “Happy” Williams.

Gillespie, the great trumpeter, bandleader and innovator of bebop, would have turned 105 on October 21. Trumpeter Skonberg is “on the way to being one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation”, writes the Wall Street Journal. She teams up with alto saxophonist Vincent Herring whom the New York City Jazz Record “has firmly established himself as one of the masters of his generation”. Their rhythm section is no less impressive with bassist Yasushi Nakamura, drummer Kenny Washington, and pianist Green whom NPR has hailed as “a curator of the bebop idiom and a cheerful guardian of its lexicon.”

Bart Platteau – flutes
Yasushi Nakamura – bass
Rudy Royston – drums

Pianist and composer Amina Figarova conducts his superb sextet. Her deeply personal and highly evocative responses to social unrest, the distinctive personalities she encountered, and universal life transitions inform this music. The Jazz Police reports: “This is a band that has built its reputation on playing original repertoire, each musician a powerful soloist in their own right; yet it is their characteristic interaction that moves the Amina Figarova Sextet above and beyond the vast majority of the great chamber ensembles of modern jazz and places the pianist among the highest echelons of composers/conductors….”

Scott worked with Ray Charles as Raelette before launching her successful solo career and later performing with Hank Crawford, David “Fathead” Newman, Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr. and many others. JazzTimes says Scott mixes “the nervous grit of Gladys Knight and the sophisticated sassiness of Shirley Horn “with” nods to idols such as Carmen, Ella, Sarah and Dinah. The Chicago Tribune called her a “spellbinding singer”. Nobody from Houston is the very special guest of this quintet and All About Jazz says, “Whatever imponderable talent it takes to stay at the top of his game for nearly six decades, as Person has, he always has. in abundance.

Malone is a musician with deep roots in blues and bebop and his soul swing approach is just one of the many reasons he is so popular.

The dollar remains the week’s strongest as markets wait for the FOMC rate hike. Yet, the greenback is still held below last week’s high against most counterparties except the Loonie and Kiwi. The Swiss franc is also resilient as markets speculate on a bigger-than-expected rise by the SNB later on Thursday. Commodity currencies are generally weak on risk aversion while the yen is under pressure from rising major yields. Euro and British Pound are mixed for now.

Technically, USD/CAD’s breakout of the temporary high of 1.3343 overnight was a sign of a resumption of the Dollar’s rally. But further breakouts are needed to confirm the greenback’s strength. Immediate levels to watch are 144.98 resistance on USD/JPY, 1.1349 temporary low on GBP/USD and 0.6680 support on AUD/USD. A further level is the EUR/USD 0.9863 low.

In Asia, at the time of writing, the Nikkei is down -1.17%. Hong Kong’s HSI index is down -1.24%. China Shanghai SSE is down -0.04%. The Singapore Strait is up 0.06%. The Japanese 10-year JGB yield is down -0.0042 to 0.256. Overnight, the DOW fell -1.01%. The S&P 500 fell -1.13%. The NASDAQ fell -0.95%. The 10-year yield rose from 0.081 to 3.571.

AfDB cuts growth forecast for developing Asia to 4.3% and China to 3.3%

The Asian Development Bank has cut its growth forecast for developing Asia from 5.2% (April forecast) to 4.3% in 2022, and from 5.3% to 4.9% in 2023. She said: “The revised outlook is shaped by the slowing global economy, the fallout from Russia’s protracted invasion of Ukraine, more aggressive monetary tightening in advanced economies, and lockdowns resulting from the zero COVID policy of the People’s Republic of China.

As for China, growth forecasts have been revised down sharply from 5.0% to 3.3% in 2022, and from 4.8% to 4.5% in 2023. India were also revised downwards from 7.5% to 7.0% in 2022, and from 8.0% to 7.2% in 2023.

On the other hand, inflation forecasts have been raised from 3.7% to 4.5% in 2022, and from 3.1% to 4.0% in 2023, “due to the rise in energy prices and foodstuffs”.

BCE Lagarde: We will reassess whether a normalization strategy is sufficient

In a speechsaid ECB President Christine Lagarde referred to two considerations for monetary policy, the “destination” and the “pace” to get there.

As for the “destination”, she said, “as we move forward, we will reassess whether a normalization strategy is sufficient to get us back to 2% inflation over the medium term”, hinting that interest rates interest could enter a restrictive zone.

Meanwhile, the “appropriate pace of future rate increases will be decided on a meeting-by-meeting basis.”

RBA Bullock: interest rate not yet restrictive

RBA Deputy Governor Michele Bullock said the 2.35% interest rate was not yet restrictive. But the powerhouse was already looking for opportunities to slow the pace of tightening at some point. The monthly inflation data to be released next week would have a lot of statistical noise and probably wouldn’t have much impact on the deliberations at the October meeting.

Regarding the asset purchased under the pandemic bond purchase programme, Bullock said the RBA suffered a mark-to-market loss of A$33.9 billion in 2021/22. This would leave the central bank in a negative net equity position of AUD 12.4 billion. But she added that since it has the ability to create money, the Bank can continue to meet its obligations as they come due and therefore is not insolvent… The equity position negative will therefore not affect the ability of the Reserve Bank to do its job.

Fed to hike 75 basis points as 10-year yield resumes uptrend

The FOMC rate decision is the main focus of the day and another giant rate hike is expected. Based on current market prices, there is an 82% chance of a 75 basis point hike at 3.00-3.25% and only an 18% chance of a 100 basis point hike at 3.25-3.50%. Thus, the Fed has little chance of upsetting the markets.

The general rhetoric should remain unchanged, namely that the tightening should continue while the Fed is committed to bringing inflation back to its target. The biggest questions are about the new economic projections and the dot chart. Some hawkish surprise could be seen there, indicating a higher terminal rate for the current cycle and a longer period to stay there.

Here are some previews:

US 10-year yields rose a further 0.81 to close at 3.571 overnight, breaching the previous high at 3.483. The development confirmed the resumption of the uptrend from the 2020 low at 0.398. The next target will be a 61.8% projection of 1.343 to 3.483 from 2.525 to 3.847. A hawkish surprise in today’s FOMC projections could accelerate TNX’s path to that goal.

Somewhere else

The UK will release public sector net borrowing. The United States will also release existing home sales.

USD/CAD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.3272; (P) 1.3324; (R1) 1.3419; After…

The USD/CAD rally has resumed after brief consolidations and the intraday bias is back to the upside. The current uptrend should target the medium term Fibonacci level at 1.3650. On the downside, a break of 1.3225 minor support is needed to signal a near-term breach. Otherwise, the outlook will remain bullish on a pullback.

Overall downtrend from 1.4667 (2020 high) should have ended at 1.2005, after defending 1.2061 long term cluster support. The upside from there should aim for a 61.8% retracement from 1.4667 to 1.2005 (2021 low) at 1.3650. This will remain the preferred case as long as the support at 1.2716 holds.

Picture this: You just saw a photo of the most mouth-watering fettuccine pasta, slathered in Alfredo sauce, on someone’s Instagram story. You don’t know the person well, but the food looks delicious; you need to know where they got it from. You reply to the message by asking for the name of the restaurant that prepared this appetizing meal.

“This place is kind of a personal thing for me,” comes the response. “What’s really crazy is…you wouldn’t even have wanted this if you hadn’t seen me post it.”

This exchange probably seems unrealistic. It’s actually a joke – a quote from a video that recently circulated on the internet that pokes fun at people who go to great lengths to prevent others from accessing the things they treasure. Most people call this access control.
