Unfortunately, 95% of the Brazil nuts used in Ben and Jerry’s Rainforest Crunch came from large commercial providers since its creation in 1989. This may have been the result of large demand, but what started as a good intention to help save the rainforests and help small agribusiness was never realized. The larger commercial suppliers grew, some of which were convicted of killing labor union organizers. Also, as the price of nuts fell, small Indian operations were forced to sell land to make money, thereby losing some of the undeveloped land. Rainforest Crunch did not help forests or small farmers and the label was soon removed from the product after the story broke in 1993.
