Should he be Canonised?
Do you remember when you were out and about with your young child or grandchild? Perhaps you were out shopping or travelling to see friends or family. Suddenly junior wakes up and decides he is hungry. “Pull over love; we are going to have to find somewhere that will heat up his lordship’s Cow & Gate jar.” Sounds familiar?
Then overnight Paul Lindley walked into our lives. (Knighthood wouldn’t be good enough for him – he should be made a saint).
When Paul was an accountant with KPMG, his wife had the same issues with their daughter, Ella. (Are you getting there?) Paul left KPMG and with the assistance of doctors and dieticians he started putting organic, healthy food in pouches.
Now, if we are driving up to the Cotswolds and junior cries out with hunger pains I just unscrew the cap and lob the pouch over my shoulder with the instruction “Suck on that young man.” Easy, and the needle needn’t drop below the obligatory 68mph.
Paul is still the CEO of Ella’s Kitchen although he sold the company to an American food giant for £66m.
This amazing 48 year old entrepreneur is not sitting back on his laurels – he is still writing music lyrics and has developed a children’s toiletries brand under the name Paddy’s Bathroom. (Guess what his son is called.)
Paul is another brilliant British inventor and entrepreneur who comes up with ideas we all wish we had thought of and makes a howling success of it.
The more Brits we can support and encourage the fewer tears from the back seat and the healthier our economy.
