Visiting us first is Denise Leathers, editor at Frozen and Refrigerated Food Buyer magazine. She discusses the trends and changes she’s seen in ice cream consumption over her 25 years covering the food industry. And she gives us the scoop on plant-based treats. Joining next is Mike Wells, CEO of Wells Enterprises. The company’s Blue Bunny brand has become a staple in freezers across the country and a favorite during the pandemic. Will those trends continue? Wells dishes on the future of ice cream. You can find The Dairy Download for free wherever you stream podcasts and at  Today's episode is sponsored by RSM.  "At RSM, 'We Know Dairy.'
