Friends of the Earth host Extraordinary Banquet

Last night on the 14th March a unique evening of experimental food and mixology inspired by the life and principles of Linda McCartney was held in London. The evening featured one-off UK performances from singer songwriters, as well as an experimental dinner menu selected by Sir Paul McCartney.

Sir Paul McCartney said in the run up to the event, “Linda saw things differently; she saw the well-being of people and the planet as hand in hand. Friends of the Earth shares this vision and for 40 years has secured safer food and water, defended wildlife and natural habitats, and acted to keep our climate stable. I encourage you to join me and lend your support to Friends of the Earth.”

Elvis and Paul McCartney Collaboration Revealed!

Read our exciting news just gone to press!

Elvis’ voice to be central part of Linda McCartney Foods TV Ad Campaign.

New animation shows the McCartney family as you’ve never seen them before.

Fans of rock n roll icon, Paul McCartney, have been speculating all week about a teaser trailer for a new animated track that found its way onto YouTube, finally in a statement issued today the McCartney Family confirmed what it is all about.

The family today confirm that the leaked track and accompanying animation are part of the #LoveLinda campaign they have been working on alongside the Linda McCartney Foods brand. This is the first time in 15 years that the brand has done TV advertising. The TV advert shows the McCartney family as you have never seen them before in animated form.

Singer songwriter, Elvis Costello, has provided the voiceover to the animation which in addition to the family, features a host of psychedelic animal characters.

Elvis Costello has been vegetarian since the early 1980’s and remembers Linda McCartney and all she strove for; “Linda always talked well and made it seem that you wouldn’t be joining a secret weird society by being vegetarian”

Produced by world renowned Passion Pictures, whose other work includes projects for The Beatles and The Gorillaz, the animation transports viewers into a fairy-tale world where characters including Horse boy, Napoleon Dog and Ballerina Cat join the McCartney Family in a musical fanfare that culminates with a woodland feast.

Airing for the first time on 28 January, the animation is part of a national #LoveLinda campaign to launch the new range of chilled meat free foods from Linda McCartney.
