Food & Beverages
Ben & Jerry’s is a certified BCorporation
, which is recognized as the highest standard for social corporate responsibility.
By carefully selecting their ingredients and suppliers, Ben & Jerry champions positive consumption patterns. They source all of their delicious brownies from Greyston Bakery
, a bakery committed to providing jobs and job training for individuals who face barriers to employment, and exclusively use CertifiedHumane
In an effort to close the loop and maximize resources, one of their sustainable manufacturing practices include the transportation of dairy waste from theirVermont plants back to two of their supplying farms, where their waste is put into methane digesters with other farm waste to generate energy that can power the farms.
Ben &Jerry’s also gives back to the community through their PartnerShopProgram® , where scoop shops that are independently owned and operated by community-based nonprofit organizations are exempt from standard franchise fees. PartnerShops offer job and entrepreneurial training to young adults with employment struggles, changing their lives for the better.
