Last year, Ben & Jerry’s began offering plant-based ice cream flavors to the masses, but
When a “mainstream” corporate-owned giant such as Breyers gives a nod to the vegan lifestyle, it means we’re getting somewhere.
As we evolve toward a new way of living, a recent industry research report by Packaged Facts found that the traditional ice cream industry is hitting a point of stagnation, so it’s the non-dairy sector that is driving growth in the industry.
This raises a few points of interest:
It seems these plant-based options are becoming more attractive alternatives to corporations that historically rely on animal products for profit. As a consumer, this bugs me a bit. There’s part of me that wants to just enjoy the damn ice cream for what it is, but a little voice inside cringes at giving my money to any corporate conglomerate (such as Unilever—which owns Ben & Jerry’s) that makes changes based more on profit and less on ethics.
Anyhow, the introduction of vegan alternatives sends the right kind of signals to the masses – and this is what I am all about!
