DISTRIBUTION PATTERNS Farmers, ranchers, other producers of agricultural raw materials, and feedlot operators usually sell their output to collection points, such as grain terminals or stockyards The terminal or stockyard supplies the processing companies, which select needed raw materials from the available stock and process them either into finished foodstuffs – cuts of meat, for example – or into food ingredients, such as flour (Flow of goods in the food industry) From the final processor, finished food products are moved by truck or rail to warehouses, usually located near a city Most modern warehouses have storage areas for frozen and refrigerated food and are equipped to control temperature and humidity within a narrow range Warehouses can assemble full truckloads of products originating from many different suppliers for shipment to one large retailer or to a number of smaller outlets in a given region, allowing a great reduction in unit transportation costs as compared to shipping a small quantity of one item directly from the producer to the retailer If the retail outlet is large enough to accept complete truckloads directly from the manufacturer, direct shipments from the factory are sometimes made Processors of perishable foods (dairies, ice-cream manufacturers, wholesale bread bakeries, and meat-packers) usually maintain their own fleets of trucks for carrying fresh products directly to their retailer customers Truck drivers from bakeries and dairies may also service retail outlets by rotating stock and picking up stale products and returning them to the factory Restaurants and institutional commissaries purchase staples and nonperishable foods from the warehouses of specialized distributors, but they also receive direct shipment from dairies, bakeries, and meat-packers GLOSSARY A retail store (n) /ˈriːteɪl stɔː /: cửa hàng bán lẻ Advance (n) / ədˈvɑːns /: tiến Assemble (v) / əˈsɛmb(ə)l /: thu thập Available (adj) / əˈveɪləb(ə)l /: có sẵn Bakery (n) / ˈbeɪk(ə)ri /: hiệu bánh mì Be involved in (exp) / ɪnˈvɒlvd/: có liên quan đến Beverage (n) / ˈbɛv(ə)rɪdʒ /: thức uống giải khát Commissary (n) / ˈkɒmɪs(ə)ri /: kho lương thực (quân đội) Complex (n) / ˈkɒmplɛks /: khu liên hợp (adj): phức tạp Comprise (v) / kəmˈprʌɪz /: bao gồm Dairy (n) / ˈdɛːri /: cửa hàng bơ sữa Feedlot (n) / ˈ iːdlɒt /: nơi nuôi béo súc vật Ferment (v) / f əˈmɛnt /: lên men Fermentation (n) / Fermentation /: lên men Fleet (n) / fli ːt /: đoàn tàu, đoàn xe Foodstuff (n) / ˈfuːdstʌf /: thực phẩm Inventory (n)/ ˈɪnv(ə)nt(ə)ri /: kiểm kê Livestock (n) / ˈlʌɪvstɒk /: gia súc Machinery (n) / məˈ iːn(ə)ri /: máy móc Maintain (v) / meɪnˈteɪn, mənˈteɪn/: trì Maintenance (n) / ˈmeɪnt(ə)nəns /: trì Material (n) / məˈtɪərɪəl /: nguyên liệu Outlet (n) / ˈaʊtlɛt /: đại lý Pattern (n) / ˈpat(ə)n /: kiểu mẫu, mơ hình Perishable (adj) / ˈpɛrɪʃəb(ə)l /: dễ hỏng, dễ thối Pick up (v): nhặt Plant (n) / plɑːnt /: nhà máy Preserve (v) / prɪˈzəːv /: bảo quản Preservation (n) / prɛzəˈveɪʃ(ə)n/: bảo quản Principle (n) / ˈprɪnsɪp(ə)l /: nguyên lý, nguyên tắc cấu tạo Ranch (n) / rɑːn(t)ʃ / : trại nuôi gia súc Raw (adj) / rɔː /: thô (chưa tinh chế), sống (chưa nấu chin) Respond to / rɪˈspɒnd/: hưởng ứng Rotate (v) / rə(ʊ)ˈteɪt /: luân chuyển Ship (v) / ʃɪp /: vận chuyển (hàng hóa đường biển) Shipment (n) / ˈʃɪpm(ə)nt /: vận chuyển Spoil (v) / spɔɪl /: làm hư hỏng Stockyard (n) / ˈstɒkjɑːd /: nơi nuôi nhốt gia súc trước bán Surplus (adj) / ˈsəːpləs /: dư thừa (n): thặng dư temperature and humidity / ˈtɛmp(ə)rətʃə, hjʊˈmɪdɪti/: nhiệt độ độ ẩm Trade (v) / treɪd /: buôn bán Trade (n): buôn bán, thương mại Vending-machine (n) / ˈvɛndɪŋmə iːn /: máy bán hàng tự động Warehouses (n) / ˈwɛːhaʊs /: nhà kho Yield (n) / jiːld /: sản lượng I Answer the questions about the reading 1) What does the food industry consist of? 2) When did the organized trading and transport of salt, spices, grain, olive oil, fermented beverages, and other foods begin? 3) What the processing companies terminals or stockyards supply do? 4) When can direct shipments from the factory to retailers be made? 5) Where restaurants and institutional commissaries buy staples and nonperishable foods?

organisms require food for survival, growth, and reproduction Most broadly, the term food can be taken to include any kind of nutrient needed by animals, plants, and simpler forms of life, on down to bacteria This would include, for example, the inorganic substances that plants draw from air and water The processes that circulate these basic nutrients in the environment are called nutrient cycles, and the processes by which organisms make use of nutrients are collectively known as metabolism In terms of the energy needs of humans and other animals, food consists of carbohydrate, fat, and protein, along with vitamins and minerals Humans may consume a wide range of different food substances, as long as they meet nutrition requirements Otherwise nutritional-deficiency diseases will develop Nutrition is the science that interprets the relationship of food to the functioning of the living organism It is concerned with the intake of food, digestive processes, the liberation of energy, and the elimination of wastes, as well as with all the syntheses that are essential for maintenance, growth, and reproduction These fundamental activities are characteristic of all living organisms – from the simplest to the most complex plants and animals Nutrients are substances, either naturally occurring or synthesized, that are necessary for maintenance of the normal function of organisms These include carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins and minerals, water, and some unknown substances The nutritionist, a scientist working in the field of nutrition, differs from the dietitian, who translates the science of nutrition into the skill of furnishing optimal nourishment to people Dietetics is a profession concerned with the science and art of human nutrition care, an essential component of the health sciences The treatment of disease by modification of the diet lies within the province of the physician and the dietitian The foods consumed by humans must contain, in adequate amounts, about 45 to 50 highly important substances Water and oxygen are equally essential Starting only with these essential nutrients obtained from food, the body makes literally thousands of substances necessary for life and physical fitness Most of these substances are far more complicated in structure than the original nutrients Energy metabolism and requirements are customarily expressed in terms of the calorie, a heat unit Adoption of the calorie by nutritionists followed quite naturally from the original methods of measuring energy metabolism The magnitude of human energy metabolism, however, made it awkward to record the calorie measured, so the convention of the large calorie, or kilocalorie (kcal), was accepted Atwater factors, also called physiologic fuel factors, are based on the corrections for losses of unabsorbed nutrients in the feces and for the calorie equivalent of the nitrogenous products in the urine These factors are as follows: 1g of pure protein will yield calories, 1g of pure fat will yield calories, and g of pure carbohydrate will yield calories GLOSSARY A living organism / ˈlɪvɪŋ, ˈɔːg(ə)nɪz(ə)m/: sinh vật sống Absorb (v) /

1795 when Nicholas Appert, a Parisian, had an idea: why not pack food in bottles like wine? Fifteen years later, after researching and testing idea, he published his theory: if food is sufficiently heated and sealed in an airtight container, it will not spoil In 1810 Peter Durand, an Englishman, wanted to surpass Appert’s invention, so he elected to try tin instead of glass Like glass, tin could be sealed airtight but tin was not breakable and was much easier to handle Durand himself did no canning, but two other Englishmen, Bryan Donkin and John Hall, used Durand’s patent After experimenting for more than a year, they set up a commercial canning factory and by 1813 they were sending tins of food to British army and navy authorities for trial B Perhaps the greatest encouragement to the newborn canning industry was the explosion in the number of new colonial territories As people and goods were being transported to all parts of the world, the can industry itself was growing in new territories Englishmen who emigrated to America brought their newfound knowledge with them One of these was Thomas Kensett, who might fairly be called the father of the can manufacturing industry in the United States In 1812, he set up a small plant on the New York waterfront to can the first hermetically sealed products in the United States C Just before the Civil War, a technical advance by canners enabled them to speed up production Adding calcium chloride to the water in which cans were cooked raised the water temperature, speeding up the canning process Also for almost 100 years, tin cans were made by artisans by hand It was a laborious process, requiring considerable skills and muscle As the industrial revolution took hold in the United States, the demand for cans increased and machines began to replace the artisans’ handiwork A good artisan could make only 10 cans a day True production progress in can making began in 1922, when American engineers perfected the body making process New methods soon increased production of cans to as many as 250 a minute D As early as 1940, can manufacturers began to explore the possibility of adapting cans to package carbonated soft drinks The can had to be strengthened to accommodate higher internal can pressures created by carbonation (especially during warm summer months), 35 which meant increasing the thickness of the metal used in the can ends Another concern for the new beverage can was its shelf life Even small amounts of dissolved tin or iron from the can could impair the drinking quality of drinks Also the food acids, including carbonic, citric and phosphoric, in soft drinks presented a risk for the rapid corrosion of exposed tin and iron in the can At this point the can was upgraded by improving the organic coatings used to line the inside The can manufacturers then embarked on a program of material and cost savings by reducing both the amount of steel and the amount of coating used in can making These efforts were in part inspired by a new competitor – aluminium E Beverage cans made from aluminium were first introduced in 1965 This was an exciting innovation for the packaging industry because the aluminium can was made with only two pieces – a body and an end This made production easier Some of the reasons for the aluminium can’s acceptance were its ductility, its support of carbonation pressure, its lighter weight and the fact that aluminium does not rust Both steel and aluminium cans used an easy-open end tab but the aluminium tab was much easier to make Perhaps the most critical element in the aluminium can’s market success was its recycling value Aluminium can recycling excelled economically in the competition with steel because of the efficiencies aluminium cans realized in making new cans from recycled materials compared with 100 percent virgin aluminium Steel did not realize similar economies in the recycling process F Prior to 1970, can makers, customers and consumers alike were unaware of the impact that the mining and manufacturing of steel or aluminium had on the environment The concept of natural resource preservation was not an issue of great importance and the low growth of population during these early years further de-emphasized concerns for resource depletion Both industries, however, came to realize the importance of reducing their impact on the environment in the late 1960s and early 1970s as a new environmentally conscious generation emerged Manufacturers began to recognize the economics of recycling, namely lower manufacturing costs from using less material and less energy By the 1980s and 1990s, recycling had become a way of life Aluminium can recycling has become a billion-dollar business and one of the world’s most successful environmental enterprises Over the years, the aluminium can has come to be known as America’s most recyclable package, with over 60 percent of cans being recycled annually G Advances in can manufacturing technology have also brought us lighter aluminium cans In 1972, one pound of aluminium yielded only 21.75 cans Today, by using less material to 36 make each can, one pound of aluminium makes approximately 32 cans – a 47 percent improvement Just the lightening of can ends makes a huge difference When you multiply the savings by the 100 billions cans that are made each year, the weight and savings are phenomenal – over 200 millions pounds of aluminium!

The question seems to be all the more puzzling because MONICA found no significant differences in smoking, high-blood pressure or cholesterol – the three classic indicators of heart trouble – to explain the regional disparities The further the investigations progress, the more one factor presents itself as the likely answer: diet 40 Clearly, southern Europeans know something about eating that their northern brethren not The most confounding information is in the MONICA data from France, the country with the western world’s highest life expectancy The French outlive Americans, for example, by more than four years, suffer less than half as much from coronary heart disease and yet smoke more, drink more and have blood pressure and cholesterol counts just as high – while enjoying the diet that has made French cuisine a byword for high living Those startling facts are the basis of ‘the French paradox’ Dr Serge Renaud, epidemiologist and director of nutritional studies at france’s National Institute of Health and Medical Research, had been studying the relation between nourishment and heart disease for more than 30 years in serene anonymity Then the MONICA figures revealed the differences between France and more other industrialized nations: Scotland, Finland, the United States and Australia were at the top of the scale for premature deaths from heart disease, while France was nearly at the bottom, edged out only by rice and fish eating Japan Renaud was suddenly besieged with queries Could he shed some light on the puzzle? He could indeed His five-year study of some 600 Lyons area cardiac patients, completed in Spring 1993, proved to be a show-piece for the influence of diet on health Renaud put half of his volunteers on the medically recommended diet for heart-attack victims Safe and sound, and the other half on a diet for heart-attack victims, and the other half on a diet he developed himself, reducing red-meat consumption and calling for greater amounts of bread, fresh and dried vegetables, fruits, fish and white meat His diet also replaced butter with a margarine-style spread developed in his laboratory Renaud’s greater emphasis on fruits, grains, vegetables and his margarine cut the chances of death from a second heart attack by 76 per cent GLOSSARY Adjust (v) / əˈdʒʌst /: điều chỉnh Anonymity (n) / anəˈnɪmɪti /: tình trạng giấu tên Byword (n) / ˈbʌɪwəːd /: điển hình cardiac patient (exp) / ˈkɑːdɪak, ˈpeɪʃ(ə)nt /: bệnh nhân tim Cardiovascular (adj) / ˌkɑːdɪəʊˈvaskjʊlə /: thuộc tim mạch Correspondent (n) / kɒrɪˈspɒnd(ə)nt /: thơng tín viên Determinant (n) / dɪˈtəːmɪnənt /: yếu tố định 41 Die of / from (v) / dʌɪ /: chết Disclose (v) / dɪsˈkləʊz /: tiết lộ Disparity (n) / dɪˈsparɪti /: chênh lệch : nhấn mạnh vào emphasis on (v) / ˈɛmfəsɪs/ Figure (n) / ˈfɪgə/: số học heart and vascular disease (exp) / hɑːt: ənd ˈvaskjʊlə, dɪˈziːz/: bệnh tim mạch Indicator (n) / ˈɪndɪkeɪtə /: số Investigate (v) / ɪnˈvɛstɪgeɪt /: điều tra Investigation (n) / ɪnˌvɛstɪˈgeɪʃ(ə)n /: điều tra life expectancy (n) / lʌɪf,ɪkˈspɛkt(ə)nsi /: tuổi thọ trung bình Look (n) / lʊk / nhìn Multinational (adj) / mʌltɪˈnaʃ(ə)n(ə)l /: đa quốc gia Outlive (v) / aʊtˈlɪv /: sống lâu Paradox (n) / ˈparədɒks /: ngược đời Premature (adj) / ˈprɛmətjʊə /: sớm Puzzle (n) / ˈpʌz(ə)l /: vấn đề nan giải Query (n) / ˈkwɪəri /: thắc mắc show-piece (n) / ʃəʊ- piːs /: kệt tác Startling (adj) / ˈstɑːtlɪŋ /: đáng ý Statistic (n) / stəˈtɪstɪk /: số liệu thống kê 42 43 Questions – 11 Choose the appropriate letter Which is the best description of ‘the French paradox’?
