Herbs and Spices Report
Herbs are classified as plant species with distinctive flavour, smell and mechanical properties. Herbs have numerous uses including culinary ingredients, medicines, pest control and novel packaging systems. Herbs impart important flavour compounds on food and are used traditionally in varying cultural foods.
Herbs are found on consumer shelves in various forms, fresh plants, fresh cut, dried or in paste form. The most common method of preserving herbs is drying or desiccation.
Herbs such as rosemary and thyme, which are woody and more robust are the easiest to dry without a dehydrator by tying them in small bundles and hanging them to dry. Herbs with more moisture content will mould if they are not dried.
When the leaves are crispy dry and crumble easily between the fingers, they are ready to be packaged and stored.
Spices encapsule a group of condiments originating from plant organs such as seeds, roots, stems, bark and fruits. Spices may be classified according to their traditional culinary uses. Other uses include medicinal and herbal treatments for aliments.
Comparable with herbs, spices too complement various types of meats, vegetables and fish. Whole spices may be ground using a...
...view in mind LCC has huge potential to replicate model of South-west airlines but they ought to have certain strategies in place
a) Differentiating the offer:
1) Spice Jet can latch on to the differentiating model w.r.t competitors
2) They can offer time to time discount services instead of giving discounts regularly to manage their costs.
3) Major differentiation is bound to be in terms of pricing since its low cost airline additional service model will not be successful since service has its additional costs and low cost model along with focus on service cannot go hand in hand since we have seen airlines struggling in the past who adopted both the models.
4) So differentiation is a big but important hurdle for Spice Jet to overcome competition from Indigo and Jet Lite.
b) Tackling operating costs and managing remuneration of employees:
1) Operating costs are one of the important factor in aviation industry many airlines have failed because of not being able to manage its operating costs.
2) Kingfisher is the live example in front of the industry it is struggling because of being unable to control their operating costs
3) High prices of ATF are the cost which the airline cannot avoid so Spicejet can control other costs like reducing remuneration of airline staff. Spice jet gives the highest remuneration in the industry and in these tough times they can reduce the same.
4) Also the...

Plant products are widely used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics
and food industries. Many pharmaceutical companies in the
Western world depend on many plants for their medicinal
properties. Pharmacopoeias have developed from ancient
herbs (de Padua et al. 1977; de Padua 1996).

Research Question: What is the antimicrobial effect of common household spices/herbs such as cinnamon, cloves, mustard, ginger, and garlic, on the zone of inhibition in the Staphylococcus epidermis covered nutrient agar?
Hypothesis: If 3 teaspoons of chopped cinnamon, cloves, mustard, ginger, and garlic steep in half a cup of boiling water for 15 hours and then placed in nutrient agar covered with Staphylococcus epidermis (gram positive) bacteria for 24 hours (in an incubator), garlic will have the strongest antimicrobial effect. This is because of allicin (an active principle of garlic homogenates), which has a chemical reaction with thiol groups of enzymes in the bacteria. Ginger will have the least antimicrobial effect. This is because there are not as many chemical reactions with enzymes in the bacteria.
Risks: The risks of using Staphylococcus epidermis bacteria to test in microbiology are few. Gloves must be worn while handling Staphylococcus epidermis to reduce any risk of spreading the bacteria. Regarding sterilization and disposal, risks include an open flame used to sterilize tweezers as well as chemicals used for disposal. While sterilizing tweezers, gloves must continue to be worn to help with protection from the open flame, although if burned, cold water must be immediately applied to the injury. During disposal, keep gloves on to protect skin from the 10% bleach. Never ingest any liquids used during the...
...Q1. Though Herb produces numerous styles of writing utensils, would mass marketing be an option? In this scenario Herb should mass market his product. That is because he is producing wooden writing utensils which are stationary items of general utility and have universal appeal. Mass marketing is a strategy where the firm decides to ignore market segment differences and target the whole market with one offer. This strategy focuses on what is common in the needs of the consumer rather on what is different. Herb designs a product that will appeal to the largest number of buyers.
Pilot Pen Corporation before it went through diversification and came up with other stationary items, used to mass market its ball point pens in 1961 which had made it well known and recognizable in stationeries and office supply stores across the world (About Pilot Pen 2011). Therefore, Herb could mass market its product but since he started out making these utensils as a hobby, he does not own a factory or facility for production. So, in order to achieve this he must limit the types of writing utensils to its customers. This will enable him to produce larger amounts with ease and more consistency and at the same time adapt to mass market distribution.
Herb can benefit from this as mass marketing will save him on the production and marketing cost. This will enable him to ensure that he maintains the quality of the product...
...eliminated. They need an enterprise that will provide them the opportunity to generate a steady source of income.
‚ÄĘ What is your proposed inventive/innovative business solution and why do you think your project entry is important in addressing the social need/issue?
The proposed business is a one-hectare farm in Brgy. Palanog Tacloban City which will concentrate on growing and distributing high quality and organic culinary herbs. The project aims to cultivate ten culinary herbs that are widely used in foreign and Filipino cuisines among local hotels and restaurants in the city. The herbs will be grown by the families of the Gawad Kalinga Housing community whose members have little or no source of income. This will mobilize the community and provide them with a steady source of income.
The product will be known for its freshness and high quality backed by the right organic farming technology. The proponents will establish supplier relationships with the hotels and restaurants which will help them achieve their goal to be the leading supplier of culinary herbs in the city.
‚ÄĘ As a team, why did you propose the project?
The Philippines is still primarily an agricultural country despite the plan to make it an industrialized economy by 2000. Most citizens still live in rural areas and support themselves through agriculture (Encyclopedia of the Nations). Being a country situated in the tropics, Philippines...
