Ben and Jerry's

Ben & Jerry's produces delicious ice cream and prides itself on being a champion of "Peace" and "Love." But two years ago, member group Vermonters for a Just Peace in Palestine/Israel (VTJP) learned that the iconic company known for its social justice standards makes ice cream in Israel and sells it in illegal, Jewish-only settlements in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Its franchise's party carts even cater privately to Israeli settlers.
