There has always been a problem with the Newman's Own line of grocery products. It has nothing to do with their quality or taste. Instead, it is how they were initially set up.
Paul Newman started the brand as a for profit corporation to sell his recipes. He donated all the profits to charitable causes. After he died, the company was passed to a not-for-profit foundation. That is where the problem arose.
Not-for-profits are not allowed to control for profit corporations, since that could be used as a way around corporate tax laws. The law required the not-for-profit to sell the for-profit corporation off by November of 2018. However, Congress has passed a new exception to the rule that will allow Newman's Own to continue operating as it currently does, as Private Wealth discusses in "Paul Newman Still Giving to Charity, Even in Death."
The exception is narrow. To qualify, 100% of the profits of the “for profit” corporation must be donated to charity. The corporation also must be independently controlled and managed from the not-for-profit. There are also a few other minor requirements. This is an exception that was especially crafted for Newman's Own, so most other not-for-profits will likely not qualify.
However, it is possible that other people might be motivated to create similar businesses, in order to continue giving to charity long after they pass away.

The Newman’s Own 的例外
非營利公司是不允許控制營利公司，因為這可以用作迴避公司稅的一種方式。法律要求非營利公司在2018年11月之前出售這家營利公司。但是，國會通過了一項新的例外規定，允許Newman’s Own可以按照目前一樣繼續經營，如同Private Wealth中討論 "Paul Newman Still Giving to Charity, Even in Death." “(保羅紐曼死後仍然奉獻給慈善)
適合這條例外法律的非營利公司的機會很小。符合資格的 “營利公司”必須將公司的100％利潤捐贈給慈善機構。營利公司也必須由非營利公司進行獨立控制和管理。還有其他幾個小要求。這是一個專門為Newman’s Own創造的特別例外法律，所以大多數其他非營利公司可能不符合資格。
