The journey began in 1978 when two friends opened an ice cream shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont. Today Ben & Jerry’s is sold globally in far-off places with names we sometimes mispronounce and the ice cream business they built is as legendary as the ice cream is euphoric. Ben & Jerry’s produces super premium ice cream known for its high quality and unique add-ins ranging from large chunks of bakery items, chocolate, nuts, sauces and candy pieces, all with their own quirky memorable names.
Ben & Jerry’s mission has always meant more than how flavors taste and how fast they fly off the shelf. We are about going to bat for our communities at home and abroad; continually fine-tuning our operations to respect and restore the environment; never losing sight of our goal for extraordinary products while, at the same time, making a difference in our society. What makes Ben & Jerry's, Ben & Jerry's? We make the best possible ice cream in the nicest way possible. It takes a variety of people and disciplines to deliver a taste bud-boggling odyssey great enough to take you all the way to the state of euphoria.
