Oprah Gets into the Organic Business. Mogul Files Trademarks as “Oprah’s Organics” Readies for Launch
If you thought Oprah was done with the launch of her channel OWN then you are all wrong. According to the US Patent and Trademark Organization several applications have been filed on Oprah’s behalf and they all indicate that Oprah is getting into the Organic Food and Health and Beauty Aid sector.
The filing for “Oprah’s Organics” indicate that the products can include such items as bath soap, sunscreen, massage oils, and hair products. On the food side, it covers salad dressings, frozen vegetables, soups, beverages and snack dips.
Applications were also submitted for “Oprah’s Farm” and “Oprah’s Harvest” where reports suggest that these will be slated for a possible beverage and catering service.
A spokesperson for the mogul was able to shed a little light on part of Winfrey’s plan,
‘The trademarks were filed for Oprah’s farm on Maui to enable the farm to grow and distribute produce on Maui and throughout the Hawaiian Islands.’
This will just add to the list of hustles under the Oprah empire. Besides her own entire television station, holding a stake in Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, and Rachel Ray, a satellite radio channel a magazine and a website she has also been acting. She will be starring in “The Butler” next year co starring with Forrest Whitaker.
Oprah continues to rank among the most 50 most philanthropic Americans with a lifetime charity total approximated at $400 million. At age 58, it appears that Oprah will not be slowing down anytime soon.
You got to love her. Well, there are still some that don’t, Right Michelle?
