Giving Back To Our Community
The Frozen and Refrigerated Food Council of NC has a strong tradition of giving back to the
community. Through your generosity, we are able to partner with several organizations. These
donations are a direct result of our many events throughout the year.
The Frozen and Refrigerated Food Council of North Carolina proudly supports and is a member of the National
Frozen and Refrigerated Foods Association.

To our Valued Vendor and Broker Community:
As supporting retailers of the Frozen & Refrigerated
Food Council of North Carolina, we participate with
all in-store events and organizational programs and
conferences. Our stores have realized great sales
results and professional cooperation from all of the
manufacturer and broker members. We have also seen
the NC Council marketing events bring much success to
the manufacturers in all of our stores in and out of the
North Carolina market.
The NC Council works very closely with both the
Southeastern Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Conference
and the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods
Association. We encourage and invite all frozen and
refrigerated manufacturers/brands to be members of
the NC Council and participate in its’ marketing events.
The return on investment shows great value.

years ahead.
