When William Breyer created Breyers, he made a commitment to only use high-quality ingredients in his ice cream. Nearly 160 years later, we remain committed to his vision and continue to use only fresh and sustainably sourced ingredients in our products.
Breyers was the first national ice cream brand to only use dairy from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones and 100% Grade A milk and cream. We continue to raise the bar today with all of our ingredients by working with suppliers and farmers who share our values and prioritize sustainability. Together, we work diligently to ensure every ingredient we use in our products is 100% sustainably sourced – from every speck of vanilla to the juiciest strawberry. You can taste and see these high-quality, handpicked ingredients in America’s favorite ice creams like Breyers® Natural Strawberry and Breyers® Vanilla Chocolate Strawberry.
Breyers® Strawberry Ice Cream:
Natural Strawberry: Breyers® Natural Strawberry ice cream is packed with strawberries picked at the peak of happiness! Made with sun-ripened California strawberries swirled in delicious Breyers® ice cream, our Natural Strawberry is refreshing and sweet. To create Breyers® Natural Strawberry, we mix high quality and sustainably sourced milk, fresh cream, sugar, and strawberries to give you a delicious ice cream. We only use 100% Grade A milk and cream from American cows not treated with artificial growth hormones, sustainable strawberries, and other non-GMO sourced ingredients.
Vanilla Chocolate Strawberry: The Breyers® take on the classic Neapolitan ice cream combines our signature natural vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice creams together. To be enjoyed one flavor at a time or all three in one scoop, there’s something for everyone! Made with non-GMO sourced ingredients, our Vanilla Chocolate Strawberry is made with high quality ingredients like sun-ripened California strawberries, real cocoa, and 100% sustainable vanilla from Madagascar.
Breyers partners with suppliers who believe in the importance of sustainability and act on our responsibility to do better for our planet, our consumers, and the farmers who make it all possible. To do this, our suppliers build strategic partnerships with farming communities who support strawberry farmers that establish and lead the way for sustainable farming practices. These strategic partnerships provide access to sustainable farming experts, additional education and resources to our farmers, and create a farmer-to-farmer network that supports and helps others navigate sustainable farming practices1. This mutual commitment to sustainability and farmers makes every Breyers scoop that much sweeter.
