Blog: Dean BestEggs-odus - Bob Marley food lines set for launch?

Dean Best | 11 February 2009

On the heels of his 64th birthday, the family of Bob Marley has partnered with private equity firm Hilco Consumer Capital to produce a range of food and beverages under the Marley brand name.

The announcement on the new range was made yesterday (10 February) by Cedella Marley, the daughter and first child of the late Bob Marley and will also include a range of accessories, apparel, footwear and musical instruments, amongst others.

"Bob Marley's legacy is global and cross generational, there are very few people who have left such a great impression on global pop culture,” said David Lipman, chairman of Lipman, one of the brand houses working on the project. “His values are as uniquely relevant today as they were 30 years ago and will be just as relevant 30 years from now. I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work on a brand that deserves such thoughtful stewardship."

And so on that note, we at the just-food head office thought we’d help them out with some brand names for the new food range. Judge for yourself…

No Woman, No Fry Up
Easy Lamb Shanking
Eggs-odus
Buffalo Egg & Soldiers
Bun Love...

...while Jamming and Stir it Up speak for themselves!

Any further contributions are welcomed….
