Newman’s Own goes organic with salad dressing
WESTPORT, Conn. — Newman's Own is leveraging the popularity of organics as well as its salad dressings by adding five new flavors to its portfolio.
All five varieties of the new Newman's Own Organics salad dressings use cold-pressed organic extra virgin olive oil, blended with organic herbs and spices. The dressings are non-GMO, do not contain any artificial flavors or colors, and are free from high fructose corn syrup. As noted on every bottle, these new dressings carry the USDA Organic Seal and have received Oregon Tilth Certified Organic organic certification.
The Newman's Own Organics salad dressing lineup includes five family favorites:
- Olive Oil & Vinegar – an organic version of Paul Newman's original dressing
- Balsamic – the perfect combination of organic balsamic vinegar and herbs
- Italian – delizioso e organico!
- Ranch – perfect for dipping or dressing organic veggies
- Caesar – a tasty topping for the romaine empire (or other lettuces)
"As more and more families are buying organic produce, providing them with delicious organic dressing options is more important than ever," said Bruce Bruemmer, VP Marketing for Newman's Own, Inc. "This launch continues Paul Newman's founding tradition of creating great tasting dressings made with the finest ingredients, all while donating the profits to charity."
Newman's Own Organics salad dressings complement the brand's existing line of organic products, and are available at retailers nationwide.
Ethical Bean launches eco-friendly coffee pods
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — A leading brand of fair trade organic coffee is launching a 100% certified compostable single serve pod.
Ethical Bean, with a strong ongoing commitment to fair and environmentally friendly production practices, has gone one step further with an innovative solution to the large environmental challenge of single serve coffee plastic waste. Made from coffee bean chaff and other renewable materials, the entire pod can be thrown directly into the green bin and will completely break down in a municipal composter in less than 84 days.
"At Ethical Bean, we believe that when it comes to sustainability initiatives, third party verification is the gold standard. Finally we are able to add compostability to our fair trade, organic and B-Corp certifications," says Ethical Bean Co-founder and CEO, Lloyd Bernhardt. "Our new pods provide a better solution for single serve coffee drinkers who appreciate great tasting coffee and are concerned about the environment."
Ethical Bean's 100% compostable single serve pods are available on Amazon and at select US retailers.
It is estimated that 10 billion single serve plastic coffee pods are thrown into North American landfills every year, an issue that has reached an environmental tipping point globally.
Ethical Bean coffee is sold at retailers nationwide.
Yummy Spoon debuts at ECRM Baby & Infant EPPS
ORLANDO, Fla. – Martello will be debuting the week of July 11 at ECRM's Baby & Infant EPPS with its Yummy Spoon, a feeding tool that enables parents to provide baby with natural and organic foods made at home.
Yummy Spoon is already selling on Amazon and in several boutique baby stores across California and is being represented by Dale Nepsa Associates.
According to Martello, the Yummy Spoon is the only self-feeding baby spoon designed specifically for whole bananas, whole avocados, sweet potatoes, oatmeal, yogurt, pureed fruits and veggies and homemade baby food. Comparitively, other self-feeding baby spoons are more ideal for store bought, prepackaged baby food solutions.
The Yummy Spoon is dishwasher safe and also very easy to wash by hand, the company noted.
In addition to providing new moms and dads with a natural feeding solution, the new Yummy Spoon also will tug on the hearts of philanthropic millennials. According to the company's website, a portion of all Yummy Spoon sales are donated to feed hungry children in the U.S. as part of the Yummy Support Program.
