The International Frozen Yogurt Association (“IFYA”) is an organization that was established in 2013 for two reasons. The first reason was to develop an association that offers ongoing and consistent support to all players in the frozen yogurt industry by providing encouragement, advice, and information to anyone needing and/or wanting it. The second reason was to create an organization that would develop a sense of community among businesses involved in the frozen yogurt industry across the world. The International Frozen Yogurt Association acts as an independent voice and is proud to be associated with members of the frozen yogurt industry from all countries.
The IFYA’s Mission:
“The International Frozen Yogurt Association is dedicated to promoting the quality and success of the worldwide frozen yogurt industry.”
