Ben & Jerry’s Will Contribute to GMO Fight

June 17, 2014
 
 

Ben & Jerry’s is not only changing one of the names of its ice cream flavors to highlight the GMO food fight, it will also donate $1 per ice cream purchase from its Burlington and Waterbury, Vt., shops to the GMO legal defense fund.

For the month of July, Ben & Jerry’s fudge brownie ice cream will be relabeled "Food Fight! Fudge Brownie."
