COOP’s MicroCreamery, located in Boston, Massachusetts, in the 8th Congressional District, was established by Marc “Coop” Cooper after working with local ice cream legend Steve Herrell. COOP’s MicroCreamery is a family-owned business, well-known for their acclaimed Hot Fudge, as well as their Salted Caramel Sauce.

To win the hearts as well as minds of true ice cream topping aficionados, COOP's MicroCreamery makes all of their products from "scratch" using only the finest all natural ingredients, including local dairy.

As a member of Food Export’s Branded Program, COOP’s MicroCreamery recently received a 50% reimbursement when they reformatted their product labels for international sales. They have also benefited from participating in Food Export Buyers Missions, Focused Trade Missions, the Online Product Catalog, Food Export Helpline™ and educational webinars.

Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast are non-profit organizations that work in collaboration with their member state departments of agriculture and the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service. They offer a wide range of programs and services that help boost America’s agricultural exports.
