- Heavy frozen entrée buyers account for 36% more restaurant trips than the average customer. In addition to making quick meals possible, frozen can compete with restaurant quality, cuisine type, and flavor experience, all from the comfort of home.
- Manufacturers and retailers should promote the low cost per serving and the ways frozen foods can stretch food budgets.
- Other ways frozen foods can be promoted include waste minimizers, ingredients for trending kitchen appliances, and options that fit special diets.
