This is a last minute acknowledgment of Paul Newman’s contribution to the organic movement, based on an article I read in the October 1st NY Times. (October 1st was World Vegetarian Day, so maybe it was not a coincidence.)
While I grew up falling in love with Paul Newman and his movies, I also have a great deal of admiration for his Newman’s Own Organic division, created by daughter Nell. As the NY Times said, “If Mr. Newman hadn’t let his daughter Nell create an organic spin-off of his Newman’s Own line in 1993, the nation might still be choking down leaden organic cookies and rock-hard pretzels.”
Snacking is big business in America, and I am happy that Nell Newman has successfully introduced natural snacks that are available in supermarkets as well as health food stores. Nice going, Nell!
