Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream


Owner: Unilever
Country: Britain/Netherlands


In 1978, Long Islanders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield opened an ice cream shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vt., with only $12,000. The company grew to become a global business and today is well known for its environmental and social activism. In a controversial deal, Ben & Jerry's was acquired in 2000 by Anglo-Dutch conglomerate Unilever for $326 million, which has helped dramatically expand its international distribution.
