Food News of Note

H_southwestern_rice_beansThis morning, as I was sleepily reading the Food Institute Update, I came upon this blurb:

The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. completed the acquisition of the Linda McCartney brand frozen meat-free business from the H. J. Heinz Company, including the manufacturing facility based in Fakenham, England.”

I blinked. A vegetarian foods company that makes meat analog products and has a manufacturing facility in Fakenham?

Seriously? Did they plan it that way?

Read the whole press release here, if you care to. No additional Fakenham jokes, sadly.
