The sun is out, temperatures are rising and kids are out of school. It’s summer – time for flip flops, pool time and a few scoops of ice cream. In the latest episode of The Dairy Download, we talk with a few leaders dishing out delicious in the frozen treat space.

First, we hear from Jinny Lam, Director of Category Growth for Ice Cream at Tillamook County Creamery Association. What does the path look like from dairy farm to ice cream churn? How does Tillamook market and differentiate its ice cream in dairy cases across the country? Lam tells us more.

Next, we speak to Rich and Heather Draper, owners of The Ice Cream Club. How has ice cream consumption changed over their 41 years in business? Where do they see opportunities for growth? The husband-and-wife duo weighs in.
