Sean Greenwood, Ben & Jerry’s director of communications, confirms that Vermont’s Finest has closed down its in-house distribution network and turned “the majority of Ben & Jerry’s product distribution in Vermont” over to Thibodeau’s.
As Greenwood explains, Ben & Jerry’s has always been a manufacturing company first. For the last 15 years, the company has handled its own wholesale distribution within Vermont and some surrounding areas.
“But it’s like every other business,” he says. “It continues to grow and evolve and change.”
Thibodeau’s is a family-run company that’s been around since 1909, Greenwood says, with all the necessary warehouse space, trucks and staff to do the job. Thibodeau’s already handles New England distribution for other ice cream brands made by Unilever — the Anglo-Dutch multinational that purchased Ben & Jerry’s in 2000 — including Breyer’s, Good Humor, Klondike, Popsicle and Starbucks.
