The American Companies That Aren’t Actually American Anymore

Ben & Jerry’s

Ben & Jerry’s was founded by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield in 1978 as they opened their first ice cream parlor together. Since then, Ben & Jerry’s has become one of the most popular ice cream brands in America and has been mentioned several times in pop culture and on different television shows.

Sadly, this American ice cream brand is not owned by Americans anymore but was bought out by Unilever, a London-based company, in 2000. Unilever purchased┬áBen & Jerry’s for $326 million and was the highest bidder out of other companies. Since then, Unilever has helped boost sales and looks to hold on to┬áBen & Jerry’s as long as possible.
