Ben & Jerry’s has launched a new vegan ice cream called Un-fudge Our Future to tackle climate change in Australia.

Ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s has launched a vegan limited-edition ice cream flavour called Un-fudge Our Future, as part of its campaign to tackle climate change in Australia with the same name.

The ice cream itself is a non-dairy ice cream with fudge brownies and peanut butter cookie dough and “each fudgey bite is a chunky call to rebuild a clean, resilient and fair Australia”.

The company also have more vegan flavours being: cookie dough, chocolate fudge brownie, coconut caramel and peanut butter, and all cookies are made with almond milk. The ice creams are also certified vegan with the Vegetarian Union.

In an online statement, the company said: “Un-fudge our Future isn’t just a tasty new vegan flavour you can’t miss, it’s a climate crisis call-to-action you can’t ignore. Ben & Jerry’s is supporting climate leaders 350.org Australia and the inspiring global movement of young people demanding climate action.

“There is no planet B, that’s why we will donate part of the proceeds of each pint to the movement fighting for our future.”

Many food companies like Ben & Jerry’s are helping to solve this environmental issue, like Nestlé, who has laid out exactly what it is doing to reduce its carbon emissions and to go green. At the same time, many plant-based companies have been doing similar work, with Oatly collaborating with tech company Einride EV by using its all-electric commercial transport vehicles to reduce carbon dioxide by 87%.
