Ben & Jerry’s Renames Iconic Flavor to Support Vermont’s GMO Labeling Food Fight Fund

Company's Co-Founder Reveals the Scoop on Food Fight Fudge Brownie Plans

BURLINGTON, Vt. - June 16, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - It's food fight time. In response to the lawsuit filed against Vermont's first in the nation GMO labeling law, Ben & Jerry's unveiled Food Fight Fudge Brownie, an honorary renaming of one of it's most iconic flavors, Chocolate Fudge Brownie to support Vermont's legal defense.

Vermont's Governor Peter Shumlin, business leaders, members of the Vermont Right to Know Coalition, and passers by watched as the company's co-founder Jerry Greenfield unveiled a giant pint of the new flavor, Food Fight Fudge Brownie.

"This is a pretty simple issue. Vermonter's want the right to know what's in their food, and apparently a bunch of out of state companies don't want to tell us" said Jerry Greenfield. Greenfield announced that a portion from each sale of Food Fight Fudge Brownie in it's VT company owned stores would go to support the fund. "We're used to putting dough in ice cream, but renaming Chocolate Fudge Brownie to Food Fight Fudge Brownie will help put some dough in the Food Fight Fund," Greenfield added. The company plans to raise money at its company owned Vermont stores through July," Greenfield added.

If you don't live close to a shop, you can still stand up for your right to know by making a small contribution to the Food Fight Fund.
