Supply Chain Manager at Beckon
Who We Are
Beckon was born out of a friendship and a shared hunger. Co-founders Katy Flannery and Gwen Burlingame both loved ice cream but craved something they could share. They wanted to create a confection that could bridge the gap dietary restrictions had forced between them. Enter Beckon: a premium dairy ice cream with all real ingredients, no compromises, and churned without lactose. A generational product that brought two friends closer together and that would change ice cream forever. That’s Beckon: A company with taste, committed to real ingredients, conscious of digestive health and absolutely in love with ice cream! Since launching the Beckon brand in June 2018, Beckon has grown into natural and progressive grocery channels across the country including chainwide distribution in Sprouts and Whole Foods Market, as well as its own e-commerce site, beckonicecream.com.
