Real Vanilla Beans Mean Real Flavor For Breyers
With natural and sustainably sourced vanilla, there’s a lot of good going on in this ice cream.
Scooping some Breyers® Natural Vanilla ice cream into a bowl, you’ll see a lot of tiny black specks throughout your ice cream. Those specks are real vanilla beans, and they’ve come a long way to end up in your bowl.
Breyers® vanilla beans come from the island of Madagascar, off the southeastern coast of Africa. Grown in the pods of the vanilla orchids, all of these beans are hand-picked by vanilla farmers there, who depend on this crop for their livelihood.
That’s why the Breyers® Brand makes sure to source their vanilla sustainably, so that this crop can be around for generations to provide employment to the people of the island. Breyers® also invests directly in the communities that make this delicious product possible, by supporting primary schooling in Madagascar with subsidies, and providing access to health insurance to the vanilla famers and their families so they can visit doctors. All of this fits into the broader Unilever goal of enhancing livelihoods of the farmers supplying our food products the world over.
The delicious taste of Breyers® Natural Vanilla comes from the simple high-quality ingredients like fresh cream, sugar, milk, and vanilla, which has helped make Breyers® a fan favorite for more than 150 years.
And while ice cream is a delicious treat, it can fit in a balanced lifestyle and diet too! Try topping your favorite scoop with fresh fruit and nuts for a tasty dessert.
With Breyers®, taste is paramount, but the fact that the vanilla used by Breyers® is Rainforest Alliance certified sustainable is just as important. This helps to ensure the plants and the land will be farmable for generations to come. These tiny, tasty specks you’re seeing in your sundae make a big difference in peoples’ lives.
Breyers® Natural Vanilla is great in a bowl on its own, so next time you enjoy a scoop, you’ll know where the delicious flavor comes from and what it means to the earth and the vanilla bean farmers. And if you’re feeling adventurous, there are many Breyers® recipes to try, like this Piña Colada Split.
