A Message from Bruce Ginsberg
2019-2020 IAICDV President

The COVID-19 virus has had unprecedented effects on our world and personal lives, and I write not to provide you with advice, but to offer you a message that this too will pass. 

Our industry provides an essential service. We produce and or deliver a variety of consumable products to many channels, customers and consumers. While products and services may vary from member to member, there is a common theme that all of the ice cream and frozen dessert products we collectively produce and/or deliver provide a huge degree of joy, happiness and comfort to consumers of all ages.  

Our world has been challenged many times before. I truly believe the purpose of providing joy, happiness and comfort have helped many of us in the industry survive those challenges.

While we all will experience more uncertainty in the days, weeks and months ahead, please do not give up hope. The glass is half full, and as Annie said, “the sun will come out tomorrow.” 

Please look through the materials our Association is providing in the COVID-19 Resource Center. I also encourage everyone to pick up the phone and call an industry friend to share ideas or just check-in.

Wishing you safety and health,

Bruce C. Ginsberg
Founder/ CEO, New England Ice Cream Corp.
President, IAICDV
