Ben & Jerry’s new anti-Trump ice cream
Vermont ice cream giant and social justice enclave Ben & Jerry’s received backlash Monday from Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his predecessor, Benjamin Netanyahu, after announcing the company would no longer sell its frozen desserts in “Occupied Palestinian Territory.”
The ice cream company has been vocal in the past about social justice issues and announced they will no longer be selling their desserts in “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
“We have a long-standing partnership with our licensee, who manufactures Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Israel and distributes it in the region,” the company said in a Monday press release. “We have been working to change this, and so we have informed our licensee that we will not renew the license agreement when it expires at the end of next year.”
