International Frozen Yogurt Association

Dear frozen yogurt enthusiast,

Fall is just around the corner and sadly that means our summer Dole Soft Serve promotion with Kent Precision Foods Group will end on Sept. 15.

There's still time to request your FREE Dole starter kit (approx. value $50) with:

• 2 samples of Dole Soft Serve  – your choice of flavors

• Dole bucket with lid: to be used to make Dole soft serve, the bucket has instructions printed on the outside

• Wire whisk

To qualify for the complimentary starter kit, you must be an IFYA member and operate three or more frozen yogurt shops. Please complete the contact form by 9/15/2015 to request your Dole Soft Serve starter kit. This offer is not limited to the US, although it may not be available in all countries.

We've added a new member discount, 5% off soft serve machine purchases from Electro Freeze of Nor Cal. Electro Freeze of Nor Cal distributes and services all Electro Freeze models in Northern California and Northern Nevada.

Our  panel of frozen yogurt experts has expanded with two additions: Dave Wudel, President of Nanci's Frozen Yogurt, and Kris Hassett, Managing Director of American Food Mix. Dave knows all about frozen yogurt and smoothie mixes as well as international trade and business strategy. Kris is an expert on international food trends, global sales and marketing, branding, design and supplying the international foodservice market.
