Jan 22, 2021 (Heraldkeepers) —
Frozen food is healthier than canned food. Frozen food that is not heavily processed and it is just as healthy as fresh food. Frozen Food market is not sensitive to economic conditions.

Nuclear families in western and Asian markets are the biggest drivers for frozen food Indus-try. Families don’t have enough time to cook the meal so they are consuming ready to eat or ready to prepared frozen food on large scale.

Millennials are more health conscious than previous generations but that has not negatively impacted Frozen Food Industry. Nestle is making changes in more than 100 of its frozen-food products by removing artificial flavours and colours, high fructose corn syrup and GMO in-gredients.

Lack of awareness about frozen food, some people wrongly believe that freezing food re-moves nutrients. Thus Frozen Foods have had a bad reputation in recent years.

More and more awareness campaigns such as American Frozen Foods Institute started a campaign “Frozen, How Fresh Stays Fresh” to inform the public that freezing keeps food fresh by locking their flavour & nutrients. These campaigns will strengthen the demand for Frozen food products globally.

Frozen food is cheaper than fresh food. However Frozen Food poses a serious health risk. Heavily processed frozen food may cause Diabetes, Heart Disease, Elevated blood pressure, cancer and other risks. Defrosted meat can rapidly become contaminated with Bacteria. Unsafely defrosted frozen food can cause food-poisoning. These drawbacks are highly re-straining the frozen food market globally.
