LIME Celebrates Labor Day Weekend In New York’s Caribbean Diaspora

 

CaribPR Wire, KINGSTON, Jamaica, Thurs. Sept. 15, 2011: For the second consecutive year, LIME was among top sponsors of the 44th Annual West Indian Carnival Festival that drew over three million to Eastern Parkway on Labor Day in Brooklyn, U.S.A. on September 5th.  A huge LIME-sponsored float from KARMA made its way down the Parkway as over two dozen LIME girls showed off the company’s colors with rags and shiny costumes and as executives stressed the company’s commitment to the Diaspora is not just short-term but here to stay.
 
 
While the LIME float urged fans to send minutes home to family and friends, the message at the company’s booth on the parade route created a buzz, as customers from the Diaspora and over 14 Caribbean islands lined up to take advantage of the 100 bonus credit offered over the weekend to any LIME mobile phone. Among those welcoming the LIME promotion was Jamaican national Caroline Greaves and her daughter, who have been Brooklyn residents for the past thirty years.
 
 
“I am thinking of trying their new TopUp plan which gives double credit, you cannot beat this kind of deal,” Greaves said, as the LIME float with a number of costumed clad revelers passed by. “Many of my friends are switching to LIME because they like their affordable rates and products.”
 
 
Early on Monday, Regional Head of Sponsorship for LIME, Sheldon Keens-Douglas, spent the morning with Mayor Mike Bloomberg and other city elected officials and business leaders at the annual kick-off breakfast of the West Indian American Day Carnival Association, reiterating the company’s commitment to the Diaspora and organizations like WIADCA.
 
”We wouldn’t miss it,” he explained. “After our participation last year we knew we would be back. The ‘E’ in LIME is refers to ourability to bring cultural activities home to our customers through exciting products like LIME TV, Video on Demand and LIME Mobile TV and the West Indian Carnival Festival is a great complement in that regard.”
 
 
 
LIME’s presence at the carnival brought the curtains down on a weekend long series of events that included sponsorship of the inaugural Reggae, Rhythm and Blues concert on Sunday, September 4th at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY, that featured performances from the likes of Movado, Machel Montano, John Holt, I-Octane, Kenneth “Baby Face” Edmonds” and Monica.
 
“For this summer, our double-top up promotion – which offered each customer who bought credit to get two times the amount paid for – was all about keeping in touch with friends and family back home. And the festival is about keeping in touch with that Caribbean legacy and heritage. There is a synergy here that LIME, with our own legacy of over 140 years, is proud to support,” said Keens-Douglas.
 
 
The company’s support also made the EVERYBODY’S Calypso & Soca Tent-Revue at the Tropical Paradise Ballroom that featured the world’s top calypso & soca superstars, such as The Mighty Sparrow, the Calypso King of the World, Shadow, Becket, Denyse Plummer, Rikki Jai and Edwin Yearwood, from August 29th – September 2nd, a reality; along with Brass Fest on Friday, September 2 at the grounds of the Brooklyn Museum in Brooklyn, NY, which saw thousands of Caribbean music fans jump and wave with LIME to the music of the 2011 Carnival King Machel Montano & Kes The Band, Patrice Roberts, Farmer Nappy and WCR. LIME also reinforced their commitment to family with the support of the Kiddies Carnival at the Brooklyn Museum grounds Saturday – as thousands of children proudly parade in their carnival costumes.
 
 
The telecommunications giant also returned for the second consecutive year as the platinum sponsor of the Caribbean Netball Association’s (CANA) Summer Netball League and Caribbean Cup 2011, which featured teams representing Jamaica, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Sri Lanka and Barbados. The round-robin Caribbean Cup tournament this past Sunday, September 11th, 2011, brought the curtain down on the summer long netball carnival which kicked off on June 4th at the Lincoln Terrace Park in Brooklyn, New York. LIME’s sponsorship included uniforms, prizes, and telecommunications services for the tournament at the various games that took place over the summer.

Vale Inco Announces Name Change to Vale

TORONTO, May 27 /PRNewswire/ — Vale Inco announced the natural next step in the company’s evolution today by changing its name to Vale — a milestone that aligns it more fully with other Vale operations worldwide and reflects its position as part of the world’s second largest mining company.

 A world leader in nickel, the former Inco Limited was acquired by the former CVRD in late 2006. It has operated around the world as Vale Inco since 2007 when CVRD rebranded itself as Vale.

 ”Our global nickel business will continue to be headquartered in Toronto, Canada,” said Tito Martins, President and CEO of Vale’s nickel operations. “We have a very strong team in place and are building a long-term future for our operations around the world in Canada, Indonesia, New Caledonia, the United Kingdom, China, Japan and Brazil. Our nickel business today is larger than it was in 2006, when we first invested in Inco and we are building on that investment every day.

 ”We are positioning our company to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive global marketplace,” he continued. “Our objective is to ensure a sustainable, successful future for the business and the people and communities who rely on it.”

 Vale’s nickel business has more than 11,000 employees worldwide and net sales in 2009 of US$3.26 billion, accounting for 13.6% of Vale’s overall global revenue. The management team in Toronto oversees a global business committed to significant production upgrades, capital investments and new projects that hold forth the potential for further growth in Canada and internationally.

 When Vale acquired Inco in 2006, it was the largest-ever acquisition by a Latin American company. “It was a defining moment in our history,” remarked Roger Agnelli, President and CEO, Vale. “We stepped boldly onto the global stage and since that time our growth has continued, with our nickel operations playing a vital role in achieving our international ambitions.

 ”We have overcome many challenges and today stand poised to complete significant investments in new nickel operations at Goro in New Caledonia and Onca Puma in Brazil, said Mr. Agnelli. “In Canada, we are opening the first new mine in our Ontario Operations in close to 40 years, at Totten, and are constructing a new state-of-the-art hydromet processing facility at Long Harbour in Newfoundland. All of this is building towards positioning Vale as the leading, safest and most profitable nickel company in the world — which is our ultimate objective.”

 ”While our name is changing, we are still the very recognizable company our employees and communities have come to know,” continued Mr. Martins. “We are proud of our Inco heritage and its rich 107-year history — the record of accomplishments and the employees who made them possible were a large part of what attracted Vale in the first place. That experience and that commitment to excellence will continue to drive us going forward. Today’s announcement builds on the achievements of our past to help create an exciting and prosperous future.”

 The roll-out of the Company’s new name will occur across its Canadian and global operations over the coming weeks and months.

 About Vale

Vale is the second largest diversified metals and mining company in the world, the world’s largest producer of iron ore, and the world’s second largest producer of nickel. Vale also produces manganese, ferroalloys, thermal and coking coal, bauxite, alumina, aluminum, copper, cobalt, platinum group metals, potash and kaolin. Vale is the largest private sector company in Latin America with a market capitalization of around US$ 150 billion and more than 500,000 shareholders on all continents.

Coors Light Brings Cold Refreshment to Trinidad & Tobago and Enters Its 10th Country in the Caribbean

Molson Coors Partners with NWT Enterprises Ltd. to Distribute Coors Light

 

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE: TAP) and NWT Enterprises Ltd. have partnered to introduce Coors Light to beer drinkers in Trinidad & Tobago. As Molson Coors focuses on international growth, Coors Light, the world’s most refreshing beer, is now available at supermarkets, convenience stores, as well as bars and casual dining restaurants throughout the country.

 

Within the Caribbean, Trinidad & Tobago is the fourth largest beer market and has the highest per capita consumption. The presence of imported premium beer brands is a growing category in Trinidad & Tobago, as is consumer’s interest in quality American brands like Coors Light. Coors Light is now available in ten countries across the Caribbean.

 

The introduction of Coors Light to the Trinidad & Tobago market is part of a larger Molson Coors global expansion strategy.   The popularity of light, refreshing beer is growing globally, and Coors Light is well positioned to meet the demand. Coors Light travels well to new markets, particularly in Latin America, with sales up over 35% last year in Mexico and over 150% in Panama where this year it will surpass 90,000 cases after its introduction two years ago. Other markets where Coors Light is being launched this year include Costa Rica and Curacao Bonaire.  

 

Beginning this month, retailers in Trinidad & Tobago will carry Coors Light bottles and cans. All packages will feature mountains on the label with thermochromatic ink that turns blue when Coors Light has been chilled to the perfect temperature for ice cold refreshment.   According to Coors Light research, consumers want to know when their beer is cold enough to drink. To meet that need, Coors Light introduced the Cold Activated Bottle in the U.S. in 2007, the latest in a long line of innovations and packaging enhancements that have been a hallmark of Molson Coors beers.

 

“We are proud to partner with NWT and excited about the opportunity to bring the world’s most refreshing beer to beer drinkers across these beautiful islands.   Beer drinkers across the Caribbean are flocking to Coors Light as a uniquely refreshing beer and we are confident that with these kinds of distribution partnerships, combined with the distinctive brand promise of Coors Light, we will continue to grow this brand globally,” said Paul Mendieta, Molson Coors Managing Director for Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. “Trinidad & Tobago has a strong beer drinking culture and the introduction of Coors Light is perfectly timed with the country’s growing interest and enthusiasm surrounding American beer and the special drinking experience provided through our cold activation technology.”

 

“We are pleased to be partnering with Molson Coors to bring Coors Light to the market. The imported beer segment in Trinidad & Tobago is growing and the introduction of Coos Light fits well with the population’s desire for cold, refreshing beer. Molson Coors has achieved a lot of success in similar markets in the Caribbean and we look forward to helping our friends satisfy their thirst for cold refreshment whether it’s at Carnival or just limin on the beach,” added John-Paul Tannous, Director of NWT Enterprises Ltd.

 

Coors Light is available in more than 25 countries, including Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama, Ireland, and China.

 

About Molson Coors Brewing Company:

Molson Coors Brewing Company is a leading global brewer delivering extraordinary brands that delight the world’s beer drinkers. It brews, markets and sells a portfolio of leading premium brands such as Coors Light, Molson Canadian, Carling, Blue Moon, and Keystone Light across North America, Europe and Asia.

Toronto Wins 2015 Pan American Games



City to Welcome 10,000 Athletes from 42 Countries, 250,000 Visitors



GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ — The City of Toronto, Canada has been chosen to host the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games. The decision was made today by the Pan American Sport Organization (PASO) in Guadalajara, Mexico. “”We are thrilled,”" said Toronto 2015 Bid Chair, the Hon. David Peterson.



“”We would like to thank PASO and in particular, PASO President, Mario Vasquez Rana for having confidence in us and allowing us this great honor. We will work hard to stage the best Pan Am Games ever.”"



The Pan American Games are among the premium amateur athletic competitions in the world. Toronto 2015 is expected to attract 10,000 participants and 250,000 visitors from the 42 participating countries in North, South and Central America and the Caribbean.



“”We look forward to welcoming the PASO family and athletes from across the Americas and Caribbean to Toronto in 2015,”" said Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty. “”In fact, we hope they’ll stay a few weeks to enjoy a province that offers a non-stop summer of fun and excitement.”"



“”Canada is excited to be chosen to host the Americas in 2015. Canada has a successful history of hosting major international sport events, and we will host a world-class event,”" said the Honorable Gary Lunn, Minister of State (Sport). “”Hosting the 2015 Games will bring people from across the Americas to celebrate their passion for sport.”"



Situated on the Great Lakes in the heart of North America, Toronto is Canada’s largest city and capital of Ontario, Canada’s largest province. More than 200 million people live within a three-hour flight or one-day drive of the city, with 30 direct flights to PASO countries on 15 airlines.



“”I’m pleased that we will be able to host everyone to Toronto in 2015 and to make them feel welcome,”" said Toronto Mayor David Miller. “”Torontonians speak more than 140 languages and dialects and we will make every athlete and visitor feel at home. Those who have never been to Toronto will discover how much our city has to offer. We have cultural institutions designed by celebrated architects, world-class theatre, a beautiful waterfront, and thousands of acres of parkland and green space.”"



Toronto has been recognized internationally for its superb quality of life. The Economist magazine ranked the city of soaring skyscrapers and vibrant cosmopolitan neighborhoods as the fifth “”most livable”" city in the world. The 215-city Mercer survey cited Toronto the safest city in the Western

Hemisphere.



Toronto was chosen as host site over competitors Bogota, Colombia and Lima, Peru. The winning city’s $1.4-billion (CAD) plan is built around a core of existing and proven world-class facilities used for professional sports, six new athletic venues and a well-designed, sustainable athlete’s village on Toronto’s waterfront. New venues include a stadium for athletics, indoor velodrome, Canadian Sports Institute facility and Aquatics Centre, as well as two additional 50-meter pools.



“”For us, the Games’ legacy of new competition and training facilities for Ontario’s and indeed Canada’s athletes is most important,”" said Michael Chambers, President of the Canadian Olympic Committee which formally submitted the bid. “”They will provide much needed new and improved training and competition opportunities for high-performance athletes in and around the Toronto area, and provide valuable community resources for promoting physical fitness and health, especially among our youth.”"



The Pan Am Games are a major international multi-sport event, held every four years for athletes of the 42 PASO member nations. The Pan American Games consists of all Summer Olympic sports, plus other non-Olympic events, and serve as an Olympic-qualifier for a number of participating sports. The Toronto 2015 Pan American Games will take place July 10-26 and the Parapan American Games August 7-14. The last edition of the games was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in July 2007 and the next is for Guadalajara, Mexico in October 2011.
