Ice cream manufacturers Ben & Jerry's said Thursday it created a dairy advisory council, hoping to promote its values-led dairy vision.

The council is made up of experts in environmental health, animal protection, organic farming and others, the company said.

The company said it would like to see all dairy used to manufacture of its products sourced from dairy farms that promote dignified livelihoods for farmers and farm workers, practice exceptional animal welfare and don't use harmful chemicals or GMOs. Further, dairy providers should operate their farms in such a way that they act as a net carbon sink, the company said.

Cheryl Pinto, Ben & Jerry's Values-Led Sourcing Manager, said, "We're proud of the work Vermont dairy farmers have done with Ben & Jerry's, and we know we have a long way to go to achieve our vision. Dairy farmers are facing increasingly complex issues and we recognize the need for the Council's advice and insight in helping us build a program which brings about beneficial outcomes for all."

Ben & Jerry's is a Vermont corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Unilever NV (UN).
