Hood plans end to Brigham’s shipments
Lynnfield, Mass. – HP Hood, manufacturer of the Brigham’s brand of ice cream, has decided to stop supplying the 10 remaining independent ice creams stores in the Boston area that serve Brigham’s with the product later this month. As reported by the Boston Globe, this will require the two stores still operating under the Brigham’s banner to change their name once the final shipments run out.
A Hood spokesperson told the Boston Globe selling ice cream to parlors is no longer a viable business, although the company will continue selling Brigham’s products through grocery stores.
