Nutritious & Enjoyable

Americans are busy. Their lives are filled with demands and distractions. That’s what’s great about frozen foods: they fit every family’s lifestyle without compromising nutrition or taste. Frozen foods are ready when you are and that means more time to enjoy wholesome, tasty meals with family and friends. In fact, studies conducted by the Universities of Georgia and UC-Davis, in partnership with the Frozen Food Foundation, reveal that the nutritional value of some frozen fruits and vegetables is actually greater than fresh-stored produce. In addition, frozen foods provide nutrition information and portion guidance to help meet the individual needs of consumers.
