At Ben & Jerry's, we believe everyone should benefit from our ice cream ...even the chickens.
The eggs we buy for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Europe come from free-range hens. Free-range standards ensure that laying hens have wholesome, nutritious food, access to clean water, and adequate space to engage in normal behaviours, among other criteria crafted by veterinary professionals.
In the USA, we were the first national manufacturer to make a total transition to egg suppliers who use "certified-humane" cage-free methods to raise their egg-laying hens.
We pay a premium for our eggs, but we think it's worth it - our ice cream tastes great, and our hens feel great.
