aspect of corporate
culture, and it's gratifying
to partner with 415
companies on the 2022
Disability Equality Index, "
said Jill Houghton,
president and CEO of
Disability:IN. " These topscoring
companies not
only excel in disability
inclusion; many are
also adopting emerging
trends and pioneering
measures that can move
the disability agenda
from accommodation to
inclusion and ultimately,
genuine belonging. "
Prices eat into
Walmart profits
Consumer spending
on higher priced food
and fuel is eating into
Bentonville, Ark.-based
Walmart Inc.'s profit
outlook. The retailer
lowered its operating
income for the second
quarter as it is forced to
lower prices on general
merchandise in order to
clear inventory.
Walmart is now
guiding that its second
quarter and full-year
operating income will
fall 13% to 14% and 11%
to 13%, respectively.
Adjusted earnings per
share for the second
quarter are now
expected to be down 8%
to 9% and down 11% to
13% for the full year.
Net sales for the
second quarter are
expected to be up 7.5%
and for the full year
they are expected to
be up 4.5%. The retailer
expects a second
quarter currencyrelated
headwind
of approximately $1
billion. For the full year
it is expected to be $1.8
billion.
Net revenues
improved 2.4% to $141.57
billion from $138.31
billion.
During fiscal 2022,
Walmart earned $13.7
billion, equal to $4.90 per
share on the common
stock, up from $13.5
billion, or $4.77 per
share, the year before.
Operating income during
the fiscal year rose 15.1%
to $25.9 billion.
Annual sales rose 2.3%
to $567.8 billion.
Rabobank: pricing,
supply chain issues
likely to continue
An unprecedented
combination of factors
affecting the production
and movement of foods
around the world is having
a major impact on meat
and poultry markets, and
retailers and their supply
partners won't likely see
that changing anytime
soon, according to a new
market forecast from
Rabobank.
Among the forecast's
predictions:
* Limited availability
of many supplies,
ingredients and
restaurant equipment
due to the global
supply-chain crisis;
* Increasing food
and energy prices,
including fertilizer,
wheat, gasoline and
sunflower oil;
* Inflation that is
outpacing consumers'
earnings is expected to
see a shift away from
discretionary spending
as paying for utility
bills, food and fuel take
priority;
* Financial market
volatility could stunt
the future growth
and investment
in foodservice
companies; and
* The looming threat of
a global recession. " As
in other recessions,
we would expect
consumers to reduce
the frequency of their
visits to restaurants/
bars, and look to
trade down more
aggressively, " according
to Rabobank.

Unilever studies
gut-mental health
connection
Unilever has partnered
with the gut microbiome
experts at Holobiome to
identify food and drink
ingredients that could
have a positive impact
on mental wellbeing
by targeting the gutbrain
axis.
" There is increasing
awareness of the
importance of the gut
microbiome - the trillions
of microbes that live
inside us - and the critical
role it plays in our overall
health and wellbeing, "
according to Unilever.
The gut-brain axis
allows communication
between the
gastrointestinal tract, the
microbes within it, and
the brain. A major driver
of this communication is
the exchange of chemical
messengers known as
neurotransmitters and
their precursors; these
neurotransmitters can
have a stimulatory or
calming effect on the
body. Using its discovery
platform to map the
microbiome and its
influences, Holobiome
has identified key
bacteria that appear
to communicate
to the brain via
neurotransmitter
signaling in the gut.
Unilever and
Holobiome's research
partnership aims to
identify specific food
ingredients that interact
with these key bacteria.
The long-term ambition
is to enhance these
ingredients in certain
foods and refreshment
products across
Unilever's portfolio to
naturally boost levels
of certain calming
neurotransmitters in the
gut, in turn improving
mental wellbeing.
