IDFA Seeks Updated Ice Cream Standards
The International Ice Cream Association (IICA), a constituent organization of IDFA, has petitioned FDA to modernize and improve federal standards governing the manufacture of ice cream and other frozen desserts. IICA is seeking the improvements because, it says, new technologies and vastly increased ice cream product variety have occurred in the marketplace in the past 25 years, but the FDA standards have changed little in that time.
"These changes will allow us to manufacture a greater variety of high-quality frozen desserts," said IICA Chairman Gary Wells, CEO of Wells' Dairy, Le Mars, Iowa. "That means more and better choices for our customers and consumers."
