About Us


The American Frozen Food Institute is the only national trade association that advocates solely on behalf of the frozen food and beverage industry. Only through membership and participation in AFFI’s programs and events can companies access the value of our talented staff and tap into the power of collective industry action. We seek to add value for our members through our focus on three key areas.
