Cohen is best known for being the co-founder of the ice cream company Ben & Jerry's. As a senior in high school Ben worked as an ice cream man. He worked many odd jobs and studied at various schools before becoming a craft teacher at a private school for emotionally disturbed adolescents. While working there he started experimenting making his own ice cream. Cohen decided to go into the food business with his old friend Jerry Greenfield and the pair opened Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream Parlor in Burlington, Vermont. Their style of ice cream was partially developed to compensate for Cohen's anosmia which is a loss of smell and near-loss of taste.

Cohen resigned at the company's Chief Executive Officer in 1996 and has not been actively involved with Ben & Jerry's since Unilever acquired it in 2000 for $325 million. He is involved in the Ben & Jerry's Foundation and was a US Small Business Person of the Year in 1988.
