As always your local health department is a good source for information.
The New England Ice Cream and Restaurant Association (NEICRA) is the premier organization of ice cream professionals operating within New England and its surrounding states. It includes a large group of independent and franchise shop owners and an extremely dedicated group of supplier members. Together we make up the NEICRA family.
Our goal is a cooperative one: to serve those who serve ice cream as a profession.
Since our inception in 1946, our membership has grown to represent every state in New England, as well as quite a few from surrounding states. Our ranks include businesses ranging from the "giants" of the industry to small, single-person operations. Our efforts are supported by our industry suppliers, who support us as Associate Members.
We were founded on the concept of information exchange. NEICRA is the hub around which ideas, technology, and techniques are shared for mutual benefit. This exchange is meant to improve the way you do business, increase your profits, and make your enterprise more successful.
If you're new to the ice cream industry, we encourage you to join us. Our group is sharing and supportive, and our annual meetings and Fall conventions are wonderful resources to help learn from those who already run successful ice cream businesses.
