    Greggs share plunge after 'Beast from the East' profit warning

    Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) in Greggs (Stuttgart: 41G1.SG - news) have plunged by 15% after the "Beast from the East" took a bite out of sales and prompted a profit warning. The bakery chain, which has nearly 1,900 shops, said trading had been "challenging" in March and April when the severe weather meant that many of its shops could not be opened. Greggs also pointed to uncertainties in the retail sector - with much of its trade dependent on visits to high streets and other shopping venues - as it said it expected full-year profits to be flat on the year before.

    UK government resists "latte levy" in bitter blow for campaigners

    Britain has resisted a call by campaigners and lawmakers to impose a so-called "latte levy" on single-use coffee cups, opting instead to reduce the use of the cups through voluntary measures. Less than 1 percent of coffee cups are recycled in Britain because of the tightly bonded plastic liner, the difficulties of recycling packaging which has been in contact with food and drink and a lack of facilities. A committee of lawmakers had recommended a 25 pence ($0.34) levy on the use of disposable coffee cups to try to cut on their usage.
