Now if only the Kashrus was upgraded, they might actually have a huge boost.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It really depends on the store. Before Shavuos Osher Ad had Chocolate Walnut that was very good. Coffee is really good too. There's Cookie Mint Chip if you like mint. There a few more I dont remember.

I wonder if there will be more under this new agreement?
IOW, will they still be able to import C"S from chu"l? Or will they make everything in Israel now?

Are you familiar with the "CY" cheese manufacturing fiasco in Poland? I don't know many that care about kashrus and will trust the Hechsher.

I'm aware. I'm not a very big relier on that kashrus either. Fwiw, in that specific situation, they removed their hechsher from that cheese.
If im not mistaken (I might be) B&J also has a OU.

Does that make any difference? Were there any structural/organizational reforms? They were caught red-handed so they had no choice but to remove the Hechsher (what did the other Hechsher involved in that fiasco do?). From what I hear it is run by business people rather than Rabbonim (except for Shechita).

In any event, from a business perspective I think the biggest boost to sales would come if they could get Badatz Eida Chareidis.

But unilever is still allowing them to continue to do trouble. It's just that they were hurting and decided to sell one part.
This was the announcement:

Unilever today announced it has reached a new arrangement for Ben & Jerry’s in Israel which will ensure the ice cream stays available to all consumers.

The company has sold its Ben & Jerry’s business interests in Israel to Avi Zinger, the owner of American Quality Products Ltd (AQP), the current Israel-based licensee. The new arrangement means Ben & Jerry’s will be sold under its Hebrew and Arabic names throughout Israel and the West Bank under the full ownership of its current licensee.

Under the terms of Unilever’s acquisition agreement of Ben & Jerry’s in 2000, Ben & Jerry’s and its independent Board were granted rights to take decisions about its social mission, but Unilever reserved primary responsibility for financial and operational decisions and therefore has the right to enter this arrangement.

The new business arrangement follows a Unilever review of Ben & Jerry’s in Israel after the brand and its independent Board announced last year its decision to discontinue sales of its ice cream in the West Bank.

Unilever has used the opportunity of the past year to listen to perspectives on this complex and sensitive matter and believes this is the best outcome for Ben & Jerry’s in Israel. The review included extensive consultation over several months, including with the Israeli Government.

Unilever rejects completely and repudiates unequivocally any form of discrimination or intolerance. Antisemitism has no place in any society. We have never expressed any support for the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement and have no intention of changing that position.

Unilever is very proud of our business in Israel which supplies everyday household products to people across the country. Today, Unilever Israel employs around 2,000 people of diverse backgrounds, has four local manufacturing plants, and works with a network of around 2,000 local suppliers and service providers – helping to support the livelihoods of tens of thousands of Israelis across its value chain.

Over the last decade, Unilever has invested more than 1 billion Shekels (around €250 million) in our business in Israel. We look forward to continuing to make a positive contribution to Israel’s economy and society for many decades to come, and hope that Israelis and Palestinians can reach a peaceful resolution of their conflict.

We continue to believe it is inconsistent with Ben & Jerry's values for our ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

I saw a comment on Arutz Sheva which was priceless:

"I can't help but to agree with B&J. I don't think it should be sold in territory occupied by the palestinians either."

You don't eat OU?

To quote my FIL obm: מ׳האָט אויפגעהערט עסן כשר, און אָנגעהויבן עסן הכשרים.

The OU has their place in areas where I rely on them. In general my rule of thumb is that in a place with a substantial Jewish community I would like to see a local certification that I would trust.

More importantly, my comment wasn't about what I do or don't eat. It was about business. Wouldn't you agree that if they would get certified by בד"ץ עדה החרדית it would boost their sales? Rubin would probably be second to that.
