The Fashion & Consumer Goods industry is driven by consumer demand for on-trend, on-time products. Every year, the retail ‘speed to market’ cycle continues to shrink across virtually all categories, increasing the pressure on retail supply chains to be as responsive as they are cost-sensitive.

However, fashion brands and retailers must face other challenges as well and need to adjust to a world that is constantly accelerating on multiple levels. The consumer expects to have a voice from early product concept to final delivery.

Transforming disadvantaged communities with healthy, affordable food

Two of America’s most celebrated chefs separately identified a problem. Daniel Patterson – the Michelin two-star chef of San Francisco restaurant Coi – and Roy Choi – street food king and founder of Kogi – both recognized that there are many ‘food deserts’ in the United States: parts of the country with little of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas and largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers.

A chance meeting in Copenhagen resulted in LocoL: a fast food restaurant (and roaming food truck) that provides tasty, nutritious and affordable food to communities that have limited healthy choicesRather than try to go outside of the fast food culture, the chefs embraced the tried-and-true concept but focused on offering healthier food options while retaining the low price point.

The result: a restaurant that serves the community nutritious meals, while providing jobs that can build skills in an underemployed workforce.  LocoL’s founders also aim to drive more kindness, compassion and positivity into the communities in which they are located.

Come learn more about what inspired the chefs in an interview that Compass conducted with Patterson, and how they continue to evolve the menu and their long-term goals and vision for LocoL.  You’ll also find there a link to a video that takes a close-up look inside the Watts location, allowing you to virtually experience the food and atmosphere.


Leveraging Integrated Mine Planning to Control Costs at Agnico Eagle’s Meadowbank Mine

Located in the Kivalliq region of Nunavut, about 2,600 kilometers northwest of Toronto, the Meadowbank mine is Agnico Eagle’s largest gold producer, with 1.8 million ounces of gold in proven and probable reserves since the open pit began in early 2010.

Meadowbank completes all of their optimization and design work in-house and regularly performs, multi-scenario economic analyses ensuring they achieve the best results, both accurately and efficiently. Pit design plays an important role in improving Meadowbank’s productivity. In 2013, Meadowbank’s gold production was far higher than expected as a result of creating multiple designs for different scenarios to enhance their operations and productivity.

Meadowbank works with Dassault Systèmes mine planning apps and is supported by its training services.

Stephane Frechette, Engineering Assistant Superintend says: “Working together, we surpassed last year’s production targets. We provided a strong mine plan that we’ve been able to also surpass with clear planning for the mine operation.”

As a result of the training, Meadowbank is now able to perform faster, better optimized adjustments to pit shells and pit designs by their in-house design teams. The staff has gained confidence in their tactical scheduling and planning, and now evaluates various scenarios before defining their long-term plans.
