WHY A COUNCIL?
Formed in 1983, the Council’s purpose is both educational and functional. It fills very real needs for all segments of the Frozen and Refrigerated Food trade – salespeople, distributors, retailers, manufacturer’s, media and services – to communicate and keep updated in this ever-changing industry and marketplace.
“LET’S HAVE LUNCH!”
Meaningful yearly meeting featuring a keynote speaker help keep members abreast of trends and changes.
PARDON OUR SMOKE
In the past 31 years, the Council has established itself with over 350 members, plus has it’s own Web Site. It sponsors three local themed promotions March National Frozen Food Month, June, Dairy Month/ Ice Cream Month and September Back to School/Wellness with excellent sales results and trade support and has earned the reputation for doing what it sets out to do. It expanded as did the national association to include refrigerated in 2003.
BANNER ADS & HOT LINKS
Banner ads are available on the Council’s Web Site and members qualify for linking from either site.
