Participating Scoop Shops across the country will open their doors from noon – 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23rd to serve up the latest of the company’s newest super-premium quality and values-led flavors. It’s an annual tradition started by Ben & Jerry as a way to give back to the communities that support their local scoop shops.
“Product quality and social benefit are two pillars of our three-part Mission Statement”
The 2010 scoop shop line-up includes some great new flavors including more made with Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients.
With the new Milk and Cookies flavor and Chocowlate Chip, Ben & Jerry’s is furthering its efforts to use Fair Trade Certified ingredients in all of its products globally by 2013. “Product quality and social benefit are two pillars of our three-part Mission Statement,” said Social Mission Director Rob Michalak.
Ben & Jerry’s Fair Trade commitment means that every ingredient that can be sourced Fair Trade Certified™, now or in the future, is Fair Trade Certified™. Globally, this involves converting up to 121 different chunks and swirls.
In thinking globally yet acting locally, many of the community-based Scoop Shops partner with non-profits to celebrate Free Cone Day, and share the spotlight, as they kick-off the ice cream season.
Now that you’ve got the scoop, you know where you can get the scoop! See you March 23rd! Log on to www.benjerry.com to determine the closest participating Scoop Shop near you.
