Green Heart Meals renamed Freshter, plans to expand
Green Heart Meals, a Baton Rouge-based provider of healthy prepared meals, is changing its name to Freshter.
Founders Tan Nguyen, John Pham and Vinh Tran will remain owners and the group has no plans to change the meals offered at their two Baton Rouge and Denham Springs locations. The goal of the rebrand was to give the concept a fresher name, look and feel.
The company wants to add more locations, and Nguyen said those changes have fueled Freshter’s growth.
Freshter offers a range of ready-to-heat pre-portion meal types to meet dietary needs and restrictions, including low-carb, gluten-free, active lifestyle and low-calorie dishes.
LSU Construction Management Research Bendable Concrete
A research group in LSU’s Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management is developing fiber-reinforced cement composites, also known as bendable concrete.
The team consisted of LSU construction management research associate Hassan Noorvand, the department’s professor Marwa Hassan, and the Louisiana Center for Transportation Research Associate Director Tyson Rupnow. They patented the manufacture of bendable concrete.
The goal is to make bendable concrete more cost-effective and practical. This product is a promising alternative for extending the durability and service life of infrastructure.
Flexible concrete uses more cement, costs more, and has a greater negative impact on the environment. Researchers are looking for alternatives to cement.
