About Newmans Own® Organics: The Second Generation®
Great tasting products that happen to be organic is the slogan of Newmans Own Organics. Founded by Nell Newman and Peter Meehan, they develop their products from certified organic ingredients. We focus on the kinds of products we loved as kids, but take them one step further by using the highest quality of available organic ingredients, says Nell. Paul Newman and the Newmans Own Foundation have given away over $250 million to thousands of charitable organizations worldwide since 1982. For more information visit: www.newmansownorganics.com.
