Americans are more aware of what we eat than ever before, wanting to know what’s in our food and where it’s coming from. Consumers are seeking out the latest lifestyle trends including plant-based meat alternatives, organic, and options that will help them adhere to gluten-free, vegan or paleo diets. They are also demanding convenience and adaptability – looking for small meals, as well as a variety of cultural options and unique flavors that you may not expect to find in the frozen food aisle

Luckily, a limitless variety of on-trend easily prepared foods are accessible in the frozen food aisle of your local market! Frozen food sales are rising fast in the United States. In fact, after several flat years, frozen food sales rose 1.4 percent in the last year, according to Nielsen, and young adults helped drive the surge.
