This could be very good news for our kitchens – Oprah Winfrey’s own line of organic products on a grocery store shelf near you. The New York Post reports that Ms. Winfrey has recently filed applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Organizations for trademarks on the name Oprah’s Organics. One of the items she wants to feature in her new line is organic salad dressing and I can only respond to that with, “Oh please oh please oh please!” I was a loyal customer to the Newman’s Own brand until I realized that the olive oil and vinegar variety, which was my personal favorite, had GMO-laden canola in it. Grrr. The article does not state whether or not Oprah’s line will carry the “non-GMO project verified” label but my fingers are crossed.
Welcome to the movement, Oprah!
