This Halloween, the UK's fastest growing yoghurt business The Collective (www.thecollectivedairy.com) is getting ghoulish with the launch of its devilishly delicious Spiced Pumpkin Limited Edition, available from 18th September and throughout October (RRP £2.39 for a 500g pot). Inspired by that quintessentially autumnal, transatlantic treat, pumpkin pie, The Collective has paired its award-winning gourmet yoghurt with a richly sweet pumpkin compote, textured with the flesh of this seasonal squash and spiced with a blend of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of orange zest. A lavish double layer of this strikingly orange conserve is folded through luxurious and thick live yoghurt, made using the best West Country milk for that silky smooth texture and clean, creamy taste that makes The Collective's yoghurts so mind-blowingly moreish. Pioneering to the core, and always daring with their dairy, The Collective is leading the trend in gourmet vegetable yoghurts, with Spiced Pumpkin following the successful launch of the Blackcurrant & Beetroot Edition earlier this year. Spiced Pumpkin flavour is the witching hour's most wicked treat, free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Only 5% fat, it is suitable for vegetarian and gluten-free diets and is packed with lives cultures. The Collective's Halloween Limited Edition will be available from October 2014 in Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, The Co-op, Ocado, Wholefoods, Booths and Nisa, with an RRP of £2.39 for a 500g pot.

After developing a recipe for the most gorgeous yoghurt that quickly became the bestselling gourmet yoghurt in New Zealand within a year, they decided to share their secret. In 2011 they joined forces with Mike Hodgson and Amelia Harvey in the UK who believed the unique taste, texture and fun positioning was just what the market was looking for. The Collective's aim is to bring excitement, innovation and gorgeous yoghurt to fridges across the UK and now Ireland too. Based on the original New Zealand recipe, but produced in Somerset using the finest West Country milk, The Collective's handcrafted yoghurts are thick and creamy with a silky smooth, clean texture and taste that melts in your mouth. The gourmet yoghurt includes probiotics, has no artificial additives and contains only 5% fat. The Guild of Fine Foods recognised The Collective gourmet yoghurt's great taste by awarding it with two gold stars in the Great Taste Awards, the highest achieved by any flavoured yoghurt and in 2012 The Collective was awarded best new yoghurt at The Grocer Magazine New Product Awards. The Collective was also a finalist in the UK Startups Awards 2013 and The Santander/Smarta Breakthrough 50 Business of the Year.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
