Ultra low and no alcohol bar hits the streets of Melbourne
In a move that would make Al Capone blush, retail giant Dan Murphy's has turned its hand to hospitality, opening it's Hampton Street, Melbourne, Zero% bar - a bar with 30 cocktails, and 300 products, all either without alcohol, or ultra low in it. It's an emerging market, just 1000th the size of the alcohol market, but with 43% of drinkers wanting to reduce their drinking without reducing their enjoyment of a drink, Zero% shows them how. Could this trend also help hospitality, whose lunch trade suffers from a low average spend?

Life changing tragedies sometimes fuel greatness, and reveal the heroes that work among us
 After suffering 3rd-degree burns from an explosion and house fire, Jeremy Kronk dedicated his life to preventing grease fires in commercial kitchens.Although Australia has strict regulations on kitchen exhaust hoods, ongoing maintenance is difficult, and the cleaning of them is almost always out-sourced, and reliant on chemicals agents.Kronk founded ‘Shepherd FIlters’, a wool based, biodegradable, disposable, fire-resistant grease filter.Wool is naturally resistant to bacteria, mould, and mildew, absorbs and neutralises many harmful pollutants from the air, and has such an affinity for oil, that 98% of grease particles are caught BEFORE accumulating inside the hood.www.shepherdfilters.com
