Birmingham entrepreneurs emerge from the den with ‘saucy’ £500,000 sales target for eco product

Two old school friends, who took on high-profile entrepreneurs in the Dragons’ Den twice, are setting their sights on a £500,000 sales return for their new eco-friendly solution to serving up sauce.

Chinese Markets Mixed on Economic Data

Shares in the Asia-Pacific were mostly higher on Monday as investors monitored market reaction to Chinese economic data.

The Nikkei 225 popped 324.8 points, or 1.1%, to 28,871.78, after the country reported an expansion in GDP.

People are going to restaurants and amusement parks, but high prices are discouraging spending, she said.

Capital expenditure, on the other hand, was higher than what markets expected, but Shirai said that is not surprising.
