Paul Newman‘s range of products are the perfect example of what commercial foods should be. They are delicious, charmingly packaged, good for you and they help millions of charities around the world. And on top of that, they are now also good for the environment, what with the new organic line created with his daughter Nell.
Founded by the formidable Hollywood star Paul Newman, Newman’s Own was based on idea of homemade extras- all-natural salad dressings, sauces and lemonade. Paul did not expect the venture to be a big success, but over 20 years later, the company has made more than $ 175 Million in profits, all of which has gone to charity.
The newer line of organic products, Newman’s Own Organics (a division of Newman’s Own) was launched in 1993 by Nell Newman, Paul’s daughter and because a separate company in 2001. The products here are again fantastic-tasting, but more importantly are organic, meaning the ingredients are without any harmful chemicals, pesticides, hormones and other nasty things, as well as being farmed in way that preserves the environment.
Pretzels, cookies, fair trade coffee, oil, and pet food are among its products, and recently a new range of fresh produce of salad greens, spinach and baby carrots have been added.
Wouldnt it be great if the other large food companies around the world followed suit in the pursuit of common good?
