At Greyston, we believe business can and should be a powerful force for good. As New York’s First Certified Benefit Corporation, we are committed to creating lasting, positive social impact. We answer to, and transparently report on, a triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.
From the ingredients we buy to the way we hire, Greyston is demonstrating every day that it is good for business to focus beyond the bottom-line and short-term profits. Putting people, community and the environment first is good for business. We source the finest ingredients, including Fair Trade sugar and chocolate and cage-free eggs and use renewable resources to power our plant. Every day, we look to reduce our waste and to choose practices that benefit our community, like funneling profits back into programs that support our employees and their neighbors.

Greyston proudly bakes 35,000 pounds of brownies for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream every day, to be added into unbelievably popular flavors like Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Half Baked and Non-Dairy Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Our founder, Bernie Glassman, and Ben & Jerry’s co-founder, Ben Cohen, met in 1987 and discovered a shared sense of common purpose around using business for good.
Greyston and Ben & Jerry’s forged a new path-proving business can be fun, successful and a force for social justice. We are now working closely to support their exploration of values-led hiring, derived from the Greyston Open Hiring Model.Learn More about Open Hiring
