Ben & Jerry's
It was 1978. Two hippies—a college dropout and a failed medical-school applicant that were lifelong friends—pooled together their combined life savings and a few loans from friends and family to renovate an abandoned gas station. Their plan was to leave their college failings behind them and start a business together doing something they both loved—food! They learned to make ice cream through a $5 correspondence course at Penn State (costs split between them). They created rich flavors with lots of big chunks and thick swirls. Their unusual flavor concoctions and names pioneered a new category of ice cream, known today as Super Premium. So begins the story of legendary entrepreneurs Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, who are better known across the globe as Ben & Jerry. Their small, old-fashioned ice-cream parlor eventually became a Burlington, Vermont favorite, and before long, Scoop Shops popped up all over the U.S. and in 25 other countries—and pints in groceries around the world. Their brand easily attracted customers—homemade ice cream churned from wholesome ingredients, blended into creative flavors.
Since infusing their first rich and creamy batches of ice cream with chunks of fruit, nuts, candies, and cookies, Ben and Jerry have also operated with a commitment to improve the quality of life locally, nationally, and globally. They practice sustainable food production and business practices that respect the earth and environment. Ben & Jerry's uses high-quality ingredients including milk and cream from family farmers who do not treat their cows with steroids or the synthetic hormone rBGH. They source Fair Trade ingredients from non-GMO sources. Ben & Jerry’s cartons are made from FSC-certified paper, which comes from forests that are managed for the protection of wildlife, and waste from Ben & Jerry’s plants generates energy to power farms. Additionally, the company makes significant product donations to community groups and nonprofits across the nation. The company works tirelessly to reduce its carbon emissions; it strongly encourages customers to eat their ice cream in the darkest dark.
