The American company, whose motto is ‘peace and love’ announced the bid on Wednesday.
‘Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favourite two scoops of Cookie Dough in a waffle cone,’ the company wrote on their website.
‘But you find out you are not allowed… you’d be furious!
‘This doesn’t even begin to compare to how furious you would be if you were told you were not allowed to marry the person you love.
‘So we are banning two scoops of the same flavour and encouraging our fans to contact their MPs to tell them that the time has come- make same sex marriage legal! Love comes in all flavours!’
Major Western economies where gay couples can marry include the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and France.
However the Australian government has continued to resist, saying same-sex marriage is on the ‘political agenda’, but ultimately remains banned.
The Turnbull government has denied Parliament a free vote on the issue due to pressure from Conservative MPs.
A same-sex marriage plebiscite was proposed instead last year, but was shut down by the Opposition in the Senate, who said it would cause harmful debate.
Ben and Jerry’s have put boxes in all 26 of their Australian stores where customers can grab a postcard and write to their member of parliament- asking them to support marriage equality.
The postcards will be delivered ahead of the final parliamentary session on June 13, before the budget is announced.
‘We see this as the next opportunity for to achieve marriage equality, so we need to act NOW!’ Ben and Jerry’s wrote.
