The American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI) has launched a national effort to encourage consumers to take a fresh look at frozen foods through the “Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh.” category education and promotion initiative.
Leading American frozen food makers have come together to launch this first-of-a kind national dialogue to inform and remind consumers that freezing simply pauses just-picked, just-baked, and just-crafted foods, locking in their freshness, flavor and nutrients.
The “Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh.” initiative is a three-year, $30 million per year effort to engage consumers where they live, work, and shop through national television, digital and print advertising, online engagement, and in-store and out-of-store promotion.
“Keeping food fresh is what freezing is all about,” said Kraig R Naasz, AFFI president and chief executive officer. “Freezing is simply nature’s pause button that keeps fresh foods at their peak of freshness. We are excited to talk with consumers about the many benefits of frozen food and encourage shoppers to visit the frozen food aisle and take a fresh look at frozen.”
The “Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh.” consumer education initiative is being supported by AFFI members, including ConAgra Foods, General Mills, Heinz, Hillshire Brands, Jasper Wyman & Son, Kellogg’s, Lakeside Foods, Nestlé USA, Pinnacle Foods, Schwan’s Foods, and Seneca Foods.
