The Solar de Samaniego winery, with its "Beber Entre Líneas" (Drink Between the Lines) tour, has won the prize for Best Wine Tourism Experience of 2020 thanks to its creation of a unique wine tourism project which brings together wine and literary culture and showcases the winery’s industrial, architectural, cultural and scenic heritage.

According to the jury tasked with selecting the best experience among the entries submitted from all over Spain, one of the most impressive aspects is the "transformation of the winery spaces, where a library and dining room have been created to complement the existing areas".

This prize recognises all the work carried out at the winery to create an outstanding wine tourism experience.

The "Wine Routes of Spain" wine tourism awards are a biennial initiative which aim to publicly recognise the work of companies and regions to develop and continuously improve our country’s wine tourism offering, as well as the efforts made to achieve this.

As a sign of its commitment to the environment, Grupo Alter has reached an agreement for the procurement of energy certified with Guarantees of 100% Renewable Origin. This will mitigate the CO2 emissions associated with electricity consumption throughout the term of the contract.

The Guarantee of Origin System (GOs) is a mechanism designed to guarantee that the energy a consumer acquires comes from 100% renewable sources. The National Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC) will issue a certificate confirming the origin of the energy.

Through this system, producers apply to the CNMC for certification of the part of the energy generated from a renewable source. Once they have obtained the certificate, they can pass these guarantees on to any domestic or European distributors who request them. The distributors are then able to offer their customers energy certified with GOs.

Bodegas Solar de Samaniego has organised a Micro-Story Competition to accompany the launch of the new 7 Cepas Reserva DOCa Rioja collection as part of the Beber Entre Líneas (Drink Between the Lines) project. The aim is to bring wine and literature together and give participants the chance to display their own literary creations.

Each bottle of 7 Cepas, one for each month of the year, displays a text by some of the most outstanding writers in history. Solar de Samaniego is now offering participants in the Micro-Story Competition the chance to give free rein to their creativity.

It is a celebration of the fusion of literature and wine through which Solar de Samaniego is accompanying the launch of the 7 Cepas Reserva 2015 DOCa Rioja collection.

7 Cepas is one of the most special editions of wine from the La Rioja-based winery and is made up of 12 bottles, one for each month of the year. Each of the labels features a selected text by one of the most important authors in history, accompanied by illustrations by Elena Odriozola, winner of the National Illustration Prize. For example, April was the month of Miguel de Cervantes, May was dedicated to Honoré de Balzac and June featured WB Yeats. The collection offers a chance to revisit these world-famous authors while enjoying a leisurely glass of this Reserva DOCa Rioja Tempranillo and Graciano wine blend from 2015, a year classified as Very Good.

Construction of Grupo Alter's new pharmaceutical plant in Madrid has begun. The building will be located on the Meco R-2 Industrial Estate and will form part of the industrial complex that the Group has in Meco. The complex is also the location of the manufacturing plants for Nutribén baby food products, as well as Grupo Alter's central logistics warehouse.

The new plant will feature a high level of innovation, as well as the most advanced technological resources currently available for manufacturing processes in the pharmaceutical industry.

The new facilities will cover a total floor area of 17,216m2 and will enable Grupo Alter to meet future growth. The estimated timescale for completion of the project is three years.

The new pharmaceutical plant consolidates the comprehensive renovation of Grupo Alter's industrial facilities. This began with the construction of the new Algry Química S.L. factory in Palos de la Frontera (Huelva), and continued in Meco (Madrid) with the two new Nutribén manufacturing plants and the Group's current central logistics warehouse.

The top three clinical paediatric cases presented at the 26th Further Training Course for National Fourth Year Residents in Paediatrics have been awarded a prize of €3,000 provided by the Nutrinfant Professorship. The award of this prize was part of the 26th Annual Conference of the Spanish Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (SEGHNP), held in Santander.

The Nutrinfant Professorship is the organisation behind this initiative, the latest example of its commitment to promoting paediatric research and further training. The “Nutrinfant” Professorship in Child Health and Nutrition was set up in May 2017 following an agreement between the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), its Foundation (FUAM) and Nutribén®, under the auspices of the Teófilo Hernando Foundation Institute (IFTH) and the leadership of Professor Antonio García García.

According to Professor García, the aim of the collaboration between Nutribén® and the UAM’s IFTH is to “promote applied research and offer scientific and academic support in the field of health and its relationship with child nutrition. With regard to training, the organisation of courses on health and nutrition for health sector professionals is envisaged, as well as participation in graduate and postgraduate teaching activities. Educational events and conferences are also being organised for stakeholders in the field”.

The new DISAL Warehouse Management System was successfully implemented at Grupo Alter's central warehouse in Meco (Madrid). DISAL was developed by ALTER's Information Technology Department, and amongst its main advantages, a particular highlight is that it was designed to have a high level of flexibility, allowing it to easily and quickly adapt to the different changing processes throughout the logistics chain, as well as to the wide variety of products that Grupo Alter distributes from its central warehouse (medicines, cosmetics, baby food, promotions).

Another great advantage that DISAL provides to warehouse management is its high degree of integration with the rest of the systems involved in the different warehouse operations, particularly its complete integration with Grupo Alter's ERP system (SAP).

Finally, another highlight is that DISAL has been properly validated for logistics management of pharmaceutical products by a prestigious company renowned for its warehouse management software validation process.

The serialisation, which came into effect 9 February 2019, in accordance with Directive 2011/62/EU and Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/161, establishes a code relating to medicinal products for human use, as regards the prevention of the entry into the legal supply chain of falsified medicinal products. Its scope extends to European Union Member States and to other non-Member States. It exclusively affects those medicinal products subject to medical prescription, except for those included in the list set out in Annex I of the Regulation; those medicinal products non-subject to medical prescription, included in the list set out in Annex II of the Regulation; to those medicinal products to which Member States extend the scope of application of the unique identifier or of the anti-tampering devices.

The Serialisation challenge at Grupo Alter is linked to a large planned investment for the adaptation of reconditioning lines, the development of plant control systems and integration with partners.

To this end, the Information Technology Department has made a large investment to provide Alter Laboratories with an application that manages the unique identifier from the time it leaves the manufacturer until it is made available on the market.

This application consists of a multi-level web-based solution that safeguards the management and access by all agents involved in the supply process, perfectly integrated at this stage with business flows.

Symposium organised by Nutribén on false myths about food allergies

Nutribén along with Dr Jorge Martínez Pérez, Attending Physician of the Gastroenterology and Nutrition Department at the Niño Jesús University Children's Hospital,....

Nutribén along with Dr Jorge Martínez Pérez, Attending Physician of the Gastroenterology and Nutrition Department at the Niño Jesús University Children's Hospital, held a symposium to promote a correct understanding of certain commonly misunderstood aspects, or false myths, about food allergies.

'Food intolerances are not a serious concern; what is really important are food allergies.'

A distinction must be made between the two conditions, although both can present similar symptoms. Food intolerances usually result in a general ill feeling in the digestive system of the person who ingests a food they do not tolerate (nausea, gas, abdominal cramping, diarrhoea...). In the case of food allergies, they not only cause the person to feel ill, but they can also cause life-threatening reactions.

'Just a little bit won't hurt you...'

Let us use the example of a child who has suffered some mild allergic reactions from ingesting some kind of food. In the first instance, we could think that it is not anything to worry about because 'the child only had a few little bumps... it's nothing serious, just a little temporary itching in his mouth...' Downplaying the matter is quite a serious mistake, as there is always the possibility that the child's next allergic reaction could be life threatening. Ingesting a microscopic amount of a certain food, or even touching or inhaling it, could trigger serious allergic reactions. This is what is known as the Booster Effect.

'Coeliac disease is caused by a food allergy to gluten.'

Nowadays, we tend to generalise and call everyone who follows a gluten-free diet 'coeliacs', but there are different conditions related to this protein. Clinically, there exist several types of reactions to gluten that are classified as follows:
- Coeliac disease. This is a permanent intolerance to gluten that requires a strictly gluten-free diet, as this is the only existing therapy for coping with it.
- Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity. In contrast to coeliac disease, this can be temporary and disappear after a couple of years abstaining from gluten.
- Wheat allergy. This does present 100% as a case of allergy to the grain, with all the risks that entails.

'Lactose-free milk is better than the rest.'

For several years, there has been a trending debate in society between whether it is better to consume milk with or without lactose, due to people self-diagnosing themselves as intolerant to this molecule. It is erroneously presumed that lactose is a 'bad' component in milk, when in fact, it is just a natural sugar found in the drink. It is even advisable that people who are truly intolerant consume a certain amount of lactose, as it contributes to maintaining intestinal flora and to increasing calcium absorption, amongst other properties.

'Cooking removes allergens from foods.'

It is completely impossible to remove allergens from a food, whether by cooking it or by any other culinary technique, such as freezing. In the case of bacteria, it is, indeed, possible to eliminate them through cooking. It has been shown that bacteria are killed when exposed to temperatures above 100ºC, consequently improving the state of the food in question.

Captio is the new tool implemented by ALTER with which the management of all the company's business travel expenses has been considerably simplified and improved.

By taking a simple photo with a mobile, Captio lets us store, classify and declare all our expenses, whether they be receipts, allowances or mileage. When the photo is taken, Captio makes an automatic reading of the information and recognises the vendor data, date and amount, thus minimising the information that must be entered later.

With the implementation of Captio, expenditure management is no longer based on inefficient flows and transfer of information on paper, modernising and expediting the entire expenditure management process. At the same time, significant benefits have been achieved resulting from the minimisation of possible sources of error by significantly reducing data entry tasks.
