BY Ryan Chavis

FAIRFIELD, Calif. — Fall is the season for all things pumpkin, and it's only fitting that Jelly Belly Candy Co. is bringing back the classic flavor as part of its limited-time Holiday Favorites lineup. The company's Pumpkin Pie Jelly Belly contains notes of nutmeg and ginger spices inside of a harvest orange bean. 
 
Consumers can enjoy the seasonal treat as a single flavor, or as part of the Holiday Favorites collection which includes Cranberry Sauce, Hot Chocolate, Candy Cane and Egg Nog.

Novartis’ OTC head Brian McNamara to play key role in GSK/Novartis new joint venture

BY Michael Johnsen

BASEL, Switzerland — Following the completion of a joint venture between GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis' consumer health units, Brian McNamara, currently division head, Novartis OTC, will transition to GSK as Head of Americas and Europe for the consumer health businesses, reporting to the president of GSK Consumer Healthcare, effective at closing of the transaction, Novartis announced last week.
 
McNamara is one of three Novartis executives who will be leaving Novartis' executive committee, the company announced. With the sale of its vaccines business to GSK, Andrin Oswald, currently division head, Novartis Vaccines, will be leaving to pursue other opportunities. That deal, along with the proposed joint venture between GSK and Novartis' consumer units, is expected to close in the first half of 2015.
 
George Gunn, currently division head, Novartis Animal Health, will reach his contractual retirement age in July 2015 and will retire from Novartis upon closing of the Animal Health transaction with Eli Lilly. That transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015.

BY Antoinette Alexander

DALLAS — Alliance Data Systems, a provider of loyalty and marketing solutions derived from transaction data, on Tuesday announced that its Canadian coalition loyalty business has signed a new, long-term agreement with Canadian pharmacy retailer Rexall.

An Air Miles Reward Program sponsor in Ontario since 1999, this new, multi-year agreement enables Rexall to issue Air Miles reward miles in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, as well as continue in Ontario, effective Oct. 31.

With this agreement, an additional 167 stores across four western Canadian provinces will join Rexall's 265 existing stores in Ontario that issue Air Miles reward miles for purchases made, including prescription drugs (in permitting provincial jurisdictions), pharmaceutical and professional health services, OTCs, and a variety of beauty and household products.

The new agreement will provide Air Miles collectors in Central and Western Canada the ability to both earn Air Miles reward miles on purchases made in-store, and to redeem reward miles for the rewards they want, including Air Miles Cash, the program's instant redemption feature.
