Plug for Mam­mino

Isis Town and Country - - Towns & Country -

IT MIGHT have started with a joke about Ben and Jerry’s but Childers gourmet ice-cream com­pany Mam­mino this week got a plug in a room full of Bris­bane busi­ness people. Queens­land En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Andrew Pow­ell has pre­vi­ously pub­licly de­nounced the Amer­i­can com­pany for sup­port­ing WWF’s “pro­pa­ganda save the reef cam­paign”. When asked, teas­ingly, dur­ing a Queens­land Me­dia Club lunch whether he liked to re­lax with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, Mr Pow­ell said he would not let that brand touch his lips. “No. As many people would know it’s with Mam­mino’s ice cream,” he said. “A love­able lo­cal home-grown Queens­land prod­uct made out of a small back­yard fa­cil­ity in Childers.” Ben and Jerry’s has cham­pi­oned en­vi­ron­men­tal causes in its 35-year his­tory, in­clud­ing op­pos­ing drilling in the Arc­tic.
