Kurt that's over this week back to you. Marcus thanks page you with the menu and monaco. Twenty four before this week's tina zones recommendation. Let's continue with luke at the innovation taking place in creating plant based alternatives for meat. Siemian van de molin is the phones or of the british food tech company. Moving mountains the business got a lot of attention when it released the. Uk's i plant based bleeding berga and just recently launched. Its first plant based fish offering fish fingers. So what next terms what is it. People will want to eat in the future. I spoke to siemian me a bit earlier. And he first told me the idea for the business was born some years ago. Would it all started with a trip to the doctors. Back around two thousand fifteen sixteen and akon say my diet was one of the healthiest ones. But i had a just a random cholesterol test. I was complaining of headaches and the doctor actually said right. We're gonna send you a fool these tests and the week later. The test return then. I went in and the doctor said. Look your cholesterol is way too high for a guy your age at six point nine in the doctor said i think it's diets and you know you've got to restrict the amount of animal protein in animal fat that you are reaching all you're going to end up on stockton for the rest of your life and i seriously suggest that you do the former and you know he told me to reduce will right meets were previously. I was eating bugs and various types of food. We consider unhealthy and he said. Switch it out to fish. vegetarian foods. Vegetarian meals would choose et consumption cause eggs are very high in cholesterol and then come back in three to six months time when we do another test so the first thing i date is i went down to the supermarkets and as you can imagine back in two thousand fifteen. The variety of vegetarian vegan products was not very appetizing but nonetheless side everything that was on the shelf took it home and cook some food up and i just thought well not exactly tasty and is his. I'm gonna have to eat for the rest of my life this type of food. All statins and i had been encouraged by what was going on in the us particularly with somebody big brands out there that we're developing products. Which had more of a replication closer to real real meets where apparently you couldn't tell the difference although that's a bit of marketing and i went over and tried those products and i was certainly very encouraged. Fortunately i already had the business. That was very successful. In manufacturing detergents ecological touch and so my used a of resource to stop moving mountains on that is a company which is very ambitious to create change in the food but also create delicious great tasting alternatives to on nation's favourite loved food. It took a long while. I mean fortunately like i had the resource. We hired the various team of different consultants. Protein technologists food technologists. That could get us on the right path and our initial concepts little depressing and we found a lot of resilience in the market five years ago. You know a lot of people considered it still to be tree hugging and being burgers. And what have you. But i saw what was going to happen in the market. That has to be a change in the food system in we cannot continue to eight and process. Animal is the way that we are just very stone-age so what do people want. At the moment. You got a lot of attention in the uk for example when you release the first plant based bleeding burger in the country but besides that what is it that you think are the products you have with the most appeal. I think the bug is always going to be considered something like the holy grail. Where if you can do a bogo really well. The company looks really good. What's happened in recent years is that everybody has jumped on the bandwagon. Their companies springing up everywhere and so supermarket labels jumped on this bleeding burger bandwagon. That we were on live crate to direct ones but we have continued to develop alternative in bheith poke and fish so festival with. We've been developments. Some really great tasting. Pook meet bows where people make a comment on social media and go while these are the best place that i've ever not just not vegetarian but out of real meat products as well. I mean that's amazing. We were very hard on flavoring but also another aspect by wants to focus on The fisheries and we have just recently launched fish fingers which is one of the top selling fish products in the uk. And the reason for that is. I am exceptionally concerned of what's going on in the oceans at the moment with overfishing larry trollers scooping out fish and bycatch enormous rights and ready stocks severely depleted and again. This is another issue. When is this going to stop and a lot of the fish that we get in. The uk comes from chinese apps. So i think it's going to increase the amount of fish farms which again creates another problem because all the fish in these fish farms develop disease and they need to be treated and develop fungus and have generally unhealthy so fish. Going to come from farms. Like the cows do now. And we're just going to overproduce some. I think this is something else that needs to be addressed but if we can create a product which is just as tasty as regular fish fingers and regular fishing as a delicious crispy coating but juicy inside people just switching once a week to help the fish stocks. Because it's not for now it's for the future and by twenty-fifty fifty there will be no fishing the ocean so either we start reducing what we're consuming now and starts eating more imbalance or there aren't going to be any fish for all children tweets. I'm wondering if oscars your crystal ball. Obviously you know. Your products are available in a number of countries around the world. How is this market developing. What do you think people want in the future. And how.

"Good morning we're live in Zurich and you're listening to Monaco on Saturday coming up. Japan is warned that is not doing enough to halt the spread of cove nineteen. Meanwhile even the most conservative companies are rethinking ways to do business in a country that has been reluctant to embrace the idea of working from home. We'll hear from articles bureau chief in Tokyo. Fiona Wilson will also be in Hong Kong where bars and pubs have been ordered to close for two weeks. All that had plus a roundup of the day's papers it Saturday. The fourth of April live from due for ninety here in Zurich. This article on Saturday. Good morning we are live in Zurich. You're listening to Monaco on Saturday with me. Toddler lay and just a couple of things across our going to be going to Japan. We're going to be talking to are are few and a Wilson of being Hong Kong. Of course a little bit later As well it's the fears waking up right now. It's Saturday the fourth of April. We are live in Zurich and this is monocle on Saturday just before we move on with of course our our guests and a couple of other topics. Let's just look at what's happening around the world. China has observed a three minute silence to mourn the victims of the country's corona virus outbreak. The White House has been accused of sending mixed messages over weather at the. Us public should wear face masks. Police robot is patrolling the streets of the Tunisian capital Tunis to ensure that residents are observing the lockdown. We have a great lineup. Say we're going to be talking to Wilson to James Chambers in Hong Kong as well but I'm happy to say that Juliet Lindley is here Pity interesting start. Don't know what happened at control base back in London but anyway let your good morning very nice to see you. Good Morning. Good to see you again. Tyler how are you? I'm very well so since you were last year. Which was just six days ago. We've now got you in on a Saturday. Why we just talk about the week because I guess you must be somewhat happy that Easter holidays here. So you're you're out of what has been almost three weeks of four weeks of home schooling. Now it's two weeks two weeks of home schooling and yes. I have to admit it is a bit of a relief Yes don't need to open up all those Ipads and get the kids online and time for their online registration and all that but that said like so many parents around the world as Easter break approaches. Everybody is wondering well. What are we going to do with the kids? How much online yoga can you have them doing? In the living room How many sprints can you have them doing on the terrorists? If you're lucky enough to have a little garden maybe you can have them go out. Maybe even do an Easter egg hunt. Who knows the other that? Yeah so it's a bit of a bitter sweet moment With that though of course. There's there's been a lot of discussion In Switzerland we can't threatening noises but as we were saying the last hour There there's been certainly the federal council's with Minnesota. Okay anyway don't do what you want. But of course we're not going to prevent you and this is a time of year that normally around Easter time people had south. If you're if you're a new surname if you're in Zurich if you're in Basel people tend to head down to Chino Which of course is the Italian part of this country at an area which has been particularly hard hit. We've seen a lot of stories right now is saying that. Of course they haven't quite reached the peak. They think that probably the next four or five days is going to be very critical time. The last thing they need is then the north of Switzerland descending on on the region. What does that mean Juliet for people who are here in Zurich because I think that there is there is obviously a huge fear with good weather that That things might might unravel a little bit. That is indeed the fear. Isn't it tyler? We are seeing news that the interior ministry saying they're going to increase police presence To indeed avoid people from rushing down to the south to have their resort to end their middle winds in teaching and honestly. That's not on the Yukon Zurich. Is it a police presence and you never see police cars in the city? I've never seen the cops in Zurich spending. That's that's nice gray boxes and cameras which do at a very efficient job as we know yes so so interior minister ambassador is indeed urging people not to head south saying indeed to the peak hasn't been reached yet but we are seeing more people out and about the weather is great. I have to say ever. Since the Dan was announced mid-march it's never been Sunnier or warmer in the city. Has it so it's GONNA be tough to keep people in and as as you were saying there hasn't a clear demarcation of what exactly is locked down in terms of in relation to say Italy where you absolutely are not allowed to go up and so people sort of well? Can I just go for a walk on my own? Yes you can but if we all go for walks on our own and we all go down to the lake all of a sudden you're not just three people maximum five Do do we want to maybe start with The papers We can do this at a leisurely pace today. There's there's no great no great rush but where do you WANNA start? Let me start with the tacky targets on targets on tiger. Okay which again for our listeners. Who are not familiar with the with the target. The target is one of the newspapers of record in in Zurich and German speaking Switzerland. It is of course You know they're in line with with with the ends Ed Zad but one would say not as widely read beyond the borders Switzerland. It's much it's almost feels exericse paper in a way where the wash is like. Okay so what are what have you found well now. Of course they're headlining. This is double the emergency loans program to forty billion francs to stave off insolvencies. And I mean as we know in just one week companies here have taken out. Fourteen billion francs in state backed loans now. Finance Minister really matters saying that. Four hundred thousand small companies as struggling and most of those companies employ less than ten people and businesses. Just just as background. Businesses can borrow up to twenty million francs tyler at a lower interest and they have five years to repay their debt. But that said in the target. They're saying how the government blocks plan by Interior Minister Bissett to inject one hundred million francs into creating more. Kinder- clipper into more daycare centers. Because as we've talked about before on air and off air for working parents having your children at home online schooling coupled with everything else like cooking housework all of that is is is debilitating in a way a lot. Parents are really sort of demanding. That aren't they maybe they are. I mean I that I thought over the into the heart of the kindergartens. Wh when you walk around I mean compared to other and say well lightening compared to other cities around the world. It is quite interesting That that here there really seems to be already enough of a safe to. I know it might be going to territory here right now. Of course it's what's in. Everything costs a lot here. Prohibitive for a lot of of of let's say so. So you're you're upset that Mr Bell that he he blocked this hundred million set and another thing. That upsets me is on page. Twelve of the target of tiger. They're looking at the issue of alcoholism. And Are we drinking more under lockdown Apparently yes one is drinking. More under lockdown no bars no pubs but at home and perhaps one tends to drink even more when one is within the four walls of one's own home so anyway so they're looking at At numbers they said. They don't have statistics as yet of a spike in perhaps violence linked to alcohol. But that is what some are concerned about and perhaps expecting and then there's a little I wanted to do you think there's too much attention right now on. It's almost domestic. Violence is the only other mental health story that we're time on because you you see the World Health Organization talking about it and it sort of like other sort of parallel issue which of course it is serious but I don't think that enough of a light is being shown on many other aspects that are going on as well as health or mental health. It's like I don't I don't see a lot on that for example And even the the mental health of small business owners were everyone sort of concerned about domestic. Violence were Lotta people living in the same four walls for a long time. They can still. They can still go out so I I think we need to be expanding this beyond the notion of of course. There is violence in the household. You have a point. I mean Y I. I haven't seen any statistics but I'm expecting to see Numbers for let's say even suicide of of small business owners. I mean I think in Italy there have been some Some bad news coming out on that front so Yes domestic violence. Isn't the only thing out there. But it is an issue in your Locked up and locked down absolutely. Let's go back to the story though that they're running about this. The potential alcoholism. I was just going to wrap it up by saying that on the front on the front page. They have a little cartoon that you're delivering your daily deliveries arriving quite soon course. There is a boom in online retailers. That's for sure. No the cartoon just has a has a gentleman who's clearly a shop that selling alcohol and he's on the phone saying Yep all the movies gone more or less and then behind him. There is a pile of corona beers untouched. Right well you start. They're also stopping production of krona beer as well. We can do this and other day to get to the bottom of why. It's even called Corona virus. I never well well. Covert nineteen or why? It's not called Wuhan virus and many other things so I do I do I. Have you read that story? I don't I haven't seen that story the krona story. So maybe that's at the deep investigation that we that we need to look at on the topic units very good segue because tomorrow morning on Our Sunday program we have Chandra. Kurt here In the spirit of maybe having a drink at home. Chandra Kurt of course is a Swiss wine expert and she will be telling our listeners telling us What is tasted have around the table across Easter And certainly at ten o'clock on Sunday morning Which I think is also completely acceptable as this of course the global show. So it's it's after five o'clock somewhere in the world thought the world so that's GonNa be tomorrow morning from ten o'clock Zurich time here on Monocle twenty-four are we done with the with the papers sake. Yes but I would like to point out. I think we we touched on it..

"Around the world to round up the week's top techniques with our technology correspondent. David Phelan David. Welcome back. Thank you good to see you a moment ago. We were talking about the the political implications of the hallway deal and how it could affect Future trade deals with the United States future trade deals with European Union relationships. It says China from technical point of view. This is an enormous story. Isn't it yes it is And but only you can't quite separate the technical from the political. Oh they are absolutely involved especially when they're foreign governments and governments That don't trust each other that are involved And Yes yes. I don't know if the Americans feeling different about While I may be The the Brits would have a different response as well but technologically. It's very difficult to to strip while way out of a system that they're all ready heavily involved in the very much involved in the four G. Network. Technically and five G. is built directly under four G.. So to take while he out of five g you have to take that Fuji as well Bt has has changed some of its stuff off but The rival products from Ericsson and Nokia aren't necessarily as advanced displays. There's something that Alaska's Nina Schick said. That was. That was quite interesting. She said WHO Woah has come from absolutely no way in the last ten years and suddenly finds itself is enormous player. Yes I mean the that's to our is it's been very big in China for a very long time and it's been making Phones for for a while That has crept up up in our estimation a knowledge but mostly because they've got really really good in the last few years and that's why it's become so centerstage and take a little bit about how far the hallway gives a prediction here. If you wouldn't mind David how far do you think always going to be allowed into the five G. system. Because it's it's a question of access here absolutely I think that what was very revealing on Saturday when the US Trade Secretary Steven Mnuchin Talked at Chatham House House was that he used the phrase the part of its network that while he goes into is what matters and the implication is that they the the the US seemed. I'm to be hinting that they are accepting that you can let way into the edges but not into the core. There are other organizations. Who say you can't do that five G. he so integrated but I believe there are ways to to separate these things out and it sounds like The US's reluctantly coming to recognize that. That's what's going to happen et CETERA. Let's move onto sun us The the darling of the of the household speaker at the moment they are they are much beloved and becoming a have an absolute staple in many many houses. Not Not so great news about them this weekend. Well I'm that they're adding lots of extra extra features all the time to death speakers and that's because getting more and more efficient and effective some of this. Because it's seven years old because is that technologically quite complex. It's quite a surprise that some of them haven't been retired before now But in the last few days on on US aside from May certain speakers an earlier products are not going to receive software updates. Well that's not entirely unexpected. But what's more complicated with Jonas's awesome because it's multiple speakers that work together The latest speaker can only work on the The software that his current ooh speakers so therefore in a group so therefore if you've got old and new together you're restricted to what the older Software does and that has is caused a lot of people especially because some of these was still on sale two years ago to get a bit fed up about it. Saunas have now apologizing. We didn't communicate this very clearly even those because they're going to continue to get software updates in terms of security protection and we are now working out a way that you can combine old and new. I ah probably have to do them in two separate groups but you will still get the benefits of all of them. This is a new problem for for for speakers isn't it. We've seen this on laptops on all lover man. Bits of software. It seems it seems to a great surprise. Actually that they haven't thought about this before and also known as made very clear that the Oldest speakers will continue to work perfectly. They're not suddenly going to turn into bricks but they are not going to get as much. I mean they. They don't have the microphones in the more. Recent ones sounds have and that I think is part of the reason that there have been problems Later on we'll be able to allow carry out mischief on various family members in the kitchen place in music that they despise. You're in another room I think that's obligatory let's move onto apple. What are they doing well? th the European in Union has said that there are so many tons of electronic waste from cables from Charges that don't fit each other. Ten years ago there Woah thirty one different cables that fitted sockets on different electrical products. The E U saying. Let's just have one very okay. Sounds Great Really their only three now micro USB lightning from apple and USB see now since lightning is only for apple products. It's not that's not going to become the the the cable of choice so apple saying well you're effectively saying we've got to get rid of lightning and that's no good We have instilled innovation in in the system. USB has taken features that lightning has introduced. Lightning is thinner so it's more efficient for Thinner phones. So we're we. You don't want to go down this route. Ironically the IPHONE may be switching to USB later this year anyway although if it were would apple be making making all this fuss as long as it just makes it simpler for us to use plug stuff in David feeling. Thank you very much indeed for joining his monocle. Twenty four now you may have noticed Nichols editor in chief. Titled Rela- hosted are brand new weekend show Monaco on Sunday in a Derek Studio Studio who was joined by Chandra. Kurt is the editor of Wine Cellar Journal and also on the panel was Johann. WHO's a chief marketing officer? UBS and Bennasar research at the Center for Security Studies at e t h zero where the swine industry was a topic of discussion Switzerland and end. Its wine industry I was surprised. It's actually I was in just came from Tokyo yesterday and now little by little you see that bottles or leaving the country because it it's it's a little bit of a bubble probably one of the country's Chanda where most of the wines stay within the borders. Maybe for good reason. You're lucky to be in Japan because Japan is really on the radar for swine so they export some wine to Japan. It is fact that Switzerland is one of the one of the only countries that hardly export wine. We have one or two percent. It should increase a little bit further that but the Swiss people off their own wine so we drink all what you produce which is really unique. I mean obviously there is a production issue. I guess on one side because it it is that the geography is quite confined here But also are there just for people who may not be familiar. Of course. There's a lot of different types of subsidies around agriculture. There's nothing there's nothing that makes it. That may be. My Egli is going to be cheaper than buying something from Portugal. Spain now the thing is also the twist wine is not really cheap Well we often say Swiss expensive. It's not a good price for what you get but you have to sink. We not only drink all produce but we import the same quantity from my work. Doc Neighbor countries which is Italy France Spain. And there's a very beautiful wine production around us but still We we are wondering country and we'll of wine and one of the specialty are beautiful. Switzerland also diversity so you have different you know different languages different cultures different Weinstein's and and everybody loves to drink wine. Okay I want both of you though. Begnaud I when you go to the shelf do sometimes. Are you looking for a white cross on a red background. does just Swiss. We're sort of count when you get the checkout counters is a bit of patriotism or not it's just Wherever the the world is GonNa take you release where the shelves can take you to be fully? Honest like sweetness goes a long way to quality brand. But I think when it comes to why they wouldn't necessarily go for the Swiss Cross and I don't think shops necessarily emphasize that strongly out. Because it's the Italian have in mind the Argentinian South African that owned the end more famous. But as you say we drink wine ourselves and these one or two percent of export that you mentioned quite interesting because a few years years ago Switzerland Swiss parliament enacted a law. That forced all our representations abroad all our embassies at their dinners and receptions to only serve swine which was lovely for for import of swine in all these odd places where one would hardly find Switzerland otherwise so apparently it's an element of cultural diplomacy. It's quite interesting but I think if you'RE GONNA wind producing country and you have some wine and you know we switched one. You can surprise everybody because nobody knows it so I think you you are obliged to to show your own wine and and Tyler made me think about something that the Nice logo announced swine. Actually Tyler designed for us and it's really very very beautiful and you see the diversity city of Swiss wine so maybe you look out for swine search for the local listeners. Looking for plug of any sort but thank thank you Chandra just is there a move Chandra Chundin to as you said it's such a low number but is there still capacity to creep things up a little bit in terms of production and also just getting the right eight bottles around the world or is is also that sort of situation there was a little bit complacent kind of happy. The way things are at the moment you cannot compare that the wine culture was the cheese. She's culture where we have a lot of more cheese. You can produce much more cheese and you. You have to export more cheese but I think there is space to two expertly with more and also to show in a way that that we also do good wine because usually when when you travel and you have a bottle of wine and you even show it or or we do a lot of Tina's in embassies all over all over the planet and Qatar surprise to see what good quality reproduce Johan do you think. Is there a marketing trip. A trick being missed as well and I didn't go. I didn't give you the question. I I mean actually I I mean I've been around your your lovely Tariffs once or twice. You're quite good at actually supporting some of the winemakers down the lake because well. Yeah we all I'm I very very lucky In Nagoya live there's a small wine shop I'm by I'm I'M A I I would tend to say. I'm not an expert a mortar. The consumer mildest so It is important to me And that's why would go into a local wine shop and ask what should be drinking and of course questionable you'll get occasionally a non-swiss wind location is wine. I think both are equally. Good come into marketing. I think the Austrians acted it. Quite marvelous. Sir Marketing Start the back in. I can't remember late. Eighties early nineties. When the wind scandal they turned around and put Australian flag on on on the top? The wine which you probably wouldn't have done normally look for us but now thirty plus years later is really working for them and I think you know now if you walk into a Danish Embassy L.. Expect your cutlery to be Danish. If I walk into Swiss Zambezia Speaker one of these. So I'm probably I'm I'm okay with Fox especially when it's delicious Johan Yeovil Gender Kurt and bananas are there. Were talking to manacles editor in chief Tyler. Abreu lay on Monaco on Sunday.
