Kingsmill has spotted a gap in the market and filled it with a new smooth loaf, baked with oats and wheat, branded Oatilicious. The firm said it has looked to what’s popular within the breakfast cereal market and has applied it to bread. “Oat-led products, combining the goodness of wholegrain oats with great taste, are already popular in other categories, but Kingsmill Oatilicious is the first branded loaf of its kind in the bread category,” said Michael Harris, Kingsmill marketing controller. Hitting the shelves this month, the loaf will be supported by a £1.3m marketing campaign. Looking at the health trend, research by Kingsmill revealed that 22% of food choices are made with health benefits in mind. However, as Kingsmill believed the health benefits of oats are well-known to consumers, it felt it should concentrate on the ’taste’ message when marketing.The loaf has been developed to fit into the ’healthier white’ segment of the market, now worth £186.5m (source: Nielsen).Taste tests showed consumers’ opinion of the product improved once they had tasted it, compared to their perception of what it might be like beforehand.

All three pleaded not guilty Thursday. Another pair of suspects was also charged in Nassau, but their names were not immediately released because they have yet to be apprehended, investigators said.The new charges stem from two alleged burglaries—at DSW Shoe Warehouse in Carle Place and Scents Forever in Hicksville—that led investigators to Omega Storage in Amityville, where the suspects allegedly stored burglar’s tools such as a cell phone jammer, jack hammer, acetylene torch, a hydraulic floor jack, bolt cutter, dog catcher pole and masks.FBI agents, Nassau and Suffolk detectives allegedly caught the ex-New York City detective, Rafael Astacio of Copiague, driving the getaway car for two of his co-defendants, Joseph Alacqua and Michael Brown, as all three fled a June 2012 burglary, authorities said.The investigators had used wiretaps to listen to the suspect plan that break in—despite the crew using disposable phones, walkie-talkies and police scanners to evade detection—before authorities staked out the location to catch them in the act, prosecutors said.Brown had pleaded guilty in Suffolk court last year to attempted burglary. Alacqua pleaded not guilty to burglary. Astacio pleaded not guilty to charges announced last fall.Authorities said the suspects were linked to the break-ins after distinct patterns emerged, such as the crew cutting phone lines to disable alarms, cutting through the wall of a neighboring business to get at their targets and then burglarizing victimized business owners’ homes.The crew has been accused of 28 Suffolk burglaries, 21 Nassau break ins, one case in Queens and another in Westchester so far, although the investigation is continuing and more charges are expected. Businesses they hit include doctor’s offices, perfume warehouses, cigarette warehouses, leather goods stores, restaurants a meat warehouse and a coin store.Three suspects facing previously announced federal charges include 50-year-old Leonard Repka of Lindenhurst, 52-year-old Michael Figueroa of Mount Vernon and 37-year-old Victor Arias of Copiague.Bail for Camarano and Lu on the latest charges was set at $100,000 cash or $200,000 bond. Margiellos’ bail was set at $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond. They each face up to 16 years in prison on the new counts.

Still, Ball declined to identify one area where he thought he would have the greatest impact in his return.“Whenever I come back,” he said, “I’m going to try to go out for that game and see what I bring to the table. But I just think we’ve got to keep fighting.” EL SEGUNDO – Barring a setback, Lonzo Ball will be back on the court Friday night at Staples Center against Charlotte after missing the previous six games with a left shoulder sprain.“I expect to play,” Ball said, following the Lakers morning shoot around at their practice facility.Coach Luke Walton said: “If we stay on schedule, he should play tonight.”The second overall pick averaged 10 points, 7.1 assists and 6.9 rebounds through his first 31 games, and the Lakers record stood at 11-20. Since then, the wheels have come off, with the Lakers losing six straight without Ball – eight overall – including a 37-point humiliation against Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
