They're famously Progressive activists who want to actually impact the world and not just make money. It's quite an inspiring story. Unfortunately, they stopped reading at "lesaken olam".
They're owned by Unilever, who also happens to own Lipton, Dove, Axe, & a bunch of other companies. I’m curious why Unilever allows this. There’s been a lot of negative publicity lately from B&J.

Keeping the activism separate was part of the deal

Figured. I wish Unilever would publicize this every time.

They also bought many israeli food companies. Klicks, kariot....
Which would make it very strange for them to get into Israeli politics.

Read this article, they are basically a seperate company owned by Unilever.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Indeed. Which would put the current franchisee into problems.

This is reminiscent of what happened several years ago with Orange/Partner Communications. Even though Orange retracted whatever statement or action triggered it, the brand was tarnished. Partner decided to drop it and rebrand as their own brand, and IINM sued Orange for damages.

It would be nice to see if the Franchisee can sue (and hopefully win) serious damages from Ben & Jerry's. I really hope this doesn't stop here but actually puts a serious dent into their left-wing activism (though I am not holding my breath).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Many are not in a position to boycott Ben & Jerry's as it is not CY.

It would be nice to see a boycott B&J movement grow across America (let the Evangelicals lead it for all I care).

Though I would imagine that those smart left-wing Jews made sure that Unilever can't come after them for damages due to their political activism. Maybe corporations will be more careful about this nonsense in the future.
