Newman’s Own Organics Tea: Paul Newman’s Charitable Legacy Lives On

Headquartered in Westport, CT, Newman’s Own Inc. was founded by the late actor Paul Newman, in 1982. Newman’s Own Organics started in 1993, producing USDA certified organic food and beverages.

Newman’s Own products are also sold in Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Under the umbrella of the Newman’s Own Foundation, which is an IRS-recognized charitable corporation, Newman’s Own products are committed to deliver one hundred percent of their profits to charity.

Their tax returns are available to the public on their website, so transparency is obviously taken seriously. For nearly thirty five years, Newman’s Own has donated over $500 million dollars to thousands of organizations around the globe.

Continuing October 2017, the Newman’s Own Awards program donated $200,000 to Five Military Non-Profits at the Pentagon Awards Ceremony, as they have for many years.

Newman’s Own Partnerships

Newman’s Own has exclusively provided salad dressings to McDonald’s since 2003. They’ve been partnered with Costco Wholesale since 2002, donating to the Serious Fun Children’s Network.

Newman’s Own Organics Tea

Newman’s Own Organics offers full-flavored tea carefully selected from quality plantations, including black, herbal and green teas. Both their tea and packaging are Gluten free and the materials used to make the tea bags and filter papers are made from manila hemp.

All Newman’s Own Organic teas are certified USDA Organic and housed in tea bags which are bleached using TCF (Totally Chlorine Free), recognized as a global standard in the processing of wood pulps for the food industry.

Known previously as Newman’s Own Royal Tea, some of these organic tea products do contain caffeine.

Made from the tea plant – botanical name Camellia Sinensis – both the green and black tea blends contain approximately thirty to fifty milligrams of caffeine, which is about half the amount in an average cup of coffee.
