Breyers vanilla ice cream with a scoop

From the late 1860’s, Breyers has stood for quality through the Pledge of Purity, highlighting our commitment to use real ingredients for delicious desserts. Breyers Natural Vanilla continues to be loved by families, made with fresh cream, sugar, milk and only sustainably farmed vanilla from Madagascar.

In 1866, as America recovered from the Civil War, William Breyer of Philadelphia hand-cranked his first gallon of ice cream. It was a special ice cream consisting of rich cream, pure cane sugar, fresh fruits, and nuts – some of the very same ingredients used today. This Pledge of Purity continues today with our all American 100% Grade A milk and cream that also comes from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones, as well as sustainably farmed fruit and vanilla.

High quality ingredients

There may be many flavors to choose from, but all of our Breyers desserts have something in common – our commitment to using only high quality ingredients. It starts with our 100% Grade A milk and cream which comes from our partnerships with American farmers, who do not use artificial growth hormones on their cows*.

We partner with American farmers to continuously improve operations on their farms as well as the health and livelihood of their dairy cows. In 2018 we started working with the Walls Farmer Fund to research and test new ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from farms, and improving livelihoods for the animals that live there.

We are just as passionate about vanilla as our milk and cream. We work with Rainforest Alliance™ to source only sustainably farmed vanilla from farms in Madagascar. Our partnership with Rainforest Alliance™ helps local communities with education, healthcare, and the local economy.

We don’t stop there – our colors and flavors come from natural sources and all of our fruit is real and sustainably farmed. 6 of America’s favorite flavors are also made with Non-GMO sourced ingredients and we offer over 30 Gluten Free flavors. For those following a Vegan diet, there are two Non-Dairy flavors we are sure you will love.
