Supplier Diversity

We spend more money on ingredients than on any other part of our business, so who we buy from matters.

We are committed to year-over-year increases in the number of, and total procurement spending with, Black-owned and Black-led suppliers. We see this as intentional investment which will support growing wealth in these communities.

Social Enterprises and Shared Value Creation

We work with companies across our supply chain that share our belief that business can be a force for good.

Partners like Greyston Bakery, with its life-changing open hiring program, and Rhino Foods, with its focus on hiring refugees, show that businesses driven by a social mission can make a huge difference in the world. We look for like-minded partner suppliers who share our values, including many B-Corps.

Thriving Farmers and Farmworkers

The ice cream euphoria we conjure up couldn’t exist without our farmers.

Guided by our core values and our work with respected partner organisations, we help ensure that all farmers and farmworkers in our supply chain — from Vermont dairy farms to smallholder cocoa farms in the Ivory Coast — can thrive. We believe those impacted should be part of the conversation about working conditions and business practices. That’s why we work with organisations like Fairtrade International, where farmers make up half the general assembly, and Milk with Dignity, a pioneering farmworker-led human rights labour standard.

Regenerative Agriculture and Animal Welfare

Regenerative agriculture is about growing food and farming in partnership with nature to create healthy, diverse ecosystems.

That’s key to meeting our goal of having an ongoing positive impact on the environment. We believe in farming systems that keep animals healthy, build rich soil, don’t deforest, and restore degraded natural environments.

 

Climate Change

We know our footprint, are working throughout our operations to reduce it, and we report on progress annually.

Productive Waste

Our waste is put into methane digesters with other farm waste, where it generates energy to power farms.

Cleaner Greener Freezer

Our "Lean & Green" freezers are more climate-friendly and energy efficient.

Responsibly Sourced Packaging

Our paperboard packaging is Forest Stewardship Council certified, which means forest wildlife, biodiversity and sustainability are protected.
