“Madeline Picnic Co.’s mission came from an admiration for the natural resources we have access to on the East End,” says founder Madeline McLean. “The product celebrates the land and the sea and the people who work to cultivate it. Also, MPCo always strives to facilitate—and encourage—a mobile and healthy lifestyle by offering to-go meals of unparalleled quality to its customers”.
