One of the best perks of working at Ben & Jerry’s is the 3 pints of ice cream employees get to take home…per day!! But that’s not the only reason it’s great to work at Ben & Jerry’s.

The infamous flavour naming!
I love that I get a chance to potentially come up with the name of a new flavour, and thus have bragging rights to such an impressive feat. Haven’t done it yet…. but I am working on it!

The three part mission statement is living and breathing in everything we do.
It was known from the start that transitioning to non-GMO sourced ingredients would cost the company money, and the decision was made that it would not be passed on to consumers. Rather than hold up the process, it made it so much more important to push sourcing in this direction because it was the right thing to do.

Everyone is jealous of my job…
I mean, how many people get to say they make the world’s best ice cream for a living? And, come on, name one person that DOESN’T like Ben & Jerry’s?

We bring joy to people.
From the excitement people have for our new flavours, to the delight we see on thousands of people’s face on Free Cone Day, to the difference we make in the world by sourcing Fairtrade Certified ingredients and buying our brownies from Greyston Bakery – we do good and we bring joy.

Feeling the love.
My favourite part about working here is that when I tell people where I work, they immediately smile and then tell me their favourite flavour and how that flavour has gotten them through so many things in life. And then they talk to me about what a cool company it is.

This is work??
Working? It doesn't feel like work when you love what you do! I love designing the tubs, and writing about the flavour on the back of it. Walking down the freezer aisle, seeing people pick up a tub of Ben & Jerry's and smiling makes me smile every time.

It's the people that matter most.
Working for a company that values giving back, and values its employees for their differences and diversity are just a few reasons I love working for Ben & Jerry’s, but there are many more!
