NASDAQ bell ringing highlights US ice cream growth

- Last updated on GMT

The US ice cream and dairy industries turned out in force to end the day’s trading on the NASDAQ and emphasise the innovation and strength in the industry.

July is National Ice Cream Month in the US, after a Ronald Reagan proclamation in 1984. The closing bell ceremony formed part of the month’s activities and served as a way to emphasise the importance of the industry to the wider economy.

"The US ice cream industry generates more than $21 billion in annual sales and provides jobs for thousands of people,"​ said Connie Tipton, president and CEO of the International Dairy Foods Association.

“National Ice Cream Month encourages ice cream makers, scoop shops and chefs to come up with new and exciting flavors for their customers throughout the month of July,”​ said David Wicks, VP of the NASDAQ OMX Group.
