McCartney Vegetarian Foods On the Hoof


Been a busy time recently for Paul McCartney. A separation, then finally turning 64, some forty or so years after he wrote the song, and just this week seeing his ex-wife Linda’s vegetarian food business sold. The ‘Linda McCartney’ brand of frozen veg tucker has now gone to the US, where it was picked up by the natural food group, Hain Celestial, known for their Soy Dream milk, Terra Chips, and not forgetting the 30 year old perennial Celestial Seasonings teas. There had been some earlier concern amongst vegetarians that Nestle might end up the buyer. But now it seems that Hain Celestial have plans to expand the line throughout Britain, Europe and the North America. Ironically the brand which is credited with helping to make veg food popular in the UK has lost some of earlier sheen as consumers reduce their frozen food purchases. It was rumoured that Paul and his designer daughter Stella, both vegos, would be tucking in to some Linda McCartneyvegetarian sausages when he celebarted that famous birthday on the 18th. via :The Business.
