A big “thank you” this week to the Tucson, Arizona, Organic Consumers Association members who convinced their local co-op, Food Conspiracy, to stop selling Ben & Jerry’s.
Several of our supporters emailed Food Conspiracy’s store manager and its board of directors. Within hours, the co-op posted a message on Facebook that they would be discontinuing the brand in their store.
Food Conspiracy joins other co-ops who are listening to their owner/customers, including Moscow Food Co-Op in Moscow, Idaho; New Pioneer Food Co-Op in Coralville, Iowa; and Ypsilanti Food Co-Op and River Street Bakery in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
What’s Ben & Jerry’s been up to while consumers have been working hard to get Ben & Jerry’s off store shelves?
