OPRAH WINFREY EXPANDS BUSINESS EMPIRE; SET TO LAUNCH HER ORGANIC FOOD AND BATHROOM PRODUCTS


The Oprah Empire already includes a television network, satellite radio show, lifestyle website, magazine and even a school in South Africa. Now, it looks like media mogul Oprah Winfrey, 58, is delving into the world of organic products.
Several applications to trademark 'Oprah’s Organics,' for bath soaps, sunscreen, massage oils, hair products, as well as organic salad dressings, frozen vegetables, soups, beverages and snack dips, were filed late last month according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Organization.
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.
Her $2.7billion empire also includes a girls’ school in South Africa, as well as hundreds of acres of land in Maui, which include a large farm and a bed and breakfast.
Oprah Winfrey, who has spent most of 2012 splitting her time between her new home base since she left Chicago, in Montecito, Calififornia, and New Orleans, where she is starring in a film called The Butler, opposite Forest Whitaker, due out in 2013, topped Forbes’ list of highest-paid celebrities this year earning an estimated $165 million.
Raised by a mother on welfare in a poor urban neighborhood, Oprah became a millionaire at age 32 after her talk show went national.
