Dear Reader,

Oils & Fats International (OFI) is pleased to announce a new cooperation with Euro Fed Lipid to promote areas of common interest.

Our first step in collaboration comes with the forthcoming 8th International Symposium on Deep Fat Frying on 15-17 September, where we have benefited from an insightful article into the complexities of the frying process.

The article will appear in the June issue of OFI, which also celebrates OFI's 30th anniversary. Our initial aim three decades ago ­ of promoting better business by providing companies with the essential information they need to make the most of the opportunities presented by our expanding and complex industry ­ still remains true.

OFI is the world's leading publication to the edible oils and fats industry with a digital page-turn edition reaching over 59,000 and a paper circulation of 6,500, with additional distribution at all the major oils and fats events every year.

Our digital edition can be read at www.oilsandfatsinternational.com Advertising in OFI will raise your company profile and guarantee your sales message is seen by current and future customers. To take advantage of the advertising opportunities in OFI, contact Mark Winthrop-Wallace or Anita Revis Watch out for your copies of OFI magazine at both the forthcoming Deep Fat Frying Symposium and the Euro Fed Lipid Congress in Florence on 27-30 September.

The OFI team looks forward to meeting some of you at the Euro Fed Lipid events in September and welcomes you to attend our next conference and exhibition at OFI India in Hyderabad from 13-14 April 2016.
Warmest regards

Serena Lim

Ponte Vecchio


The Ponte Vecchio ("Old Bridge") is a Medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.

PV 2 It has always hosted shops and merchants who displayed their goods on tables before their premises, after authorization of the Bargello (a sort of a lord mayor, a magistrate and a police authority). The back shops (retrobotteghe) that may be seen from upriver, were added in the seventeenth century.

It is said that the economic concept of bankruptcy originated here: when a money-changer could not pay his debts, the table on which he sold his wares (the "banco") was physically broken ("rotto") by soldiers, and this practice was called "bancorotto". Not having a table anymore, the merchant was not able to sell anything
