Frozen and Refrigerated Buyer: Featuring Tommy’s Superfoods!
Earlier this summer, Frozen and Refrigerated Buyer published an article detailing the growth in sidedish sales. Consumers are moving away from unhealthy, starchy side dishes and buying more vegetables. This new trend has driven side dish sales up by 24.6% over 12 weeks, especially in plant-based, “better for you” side dishes like frozen vegetables.
Vegetables don’t just have to be a side dish!
While many companies are saving the plant-based options for side dishes, we’re on a mission to make vegetables the center of every meal, and Frozen and Refrigerated Buyer took notice! As more consumers (like you and all of us) eat more and more veggies as their entree, we’ve searched the world for the best nutrient-rich options so you can make #ThinkVeggiesFirst, plant-powered meals without having to do any of the work. We’re not just making veggies tasty again, but easy as 1-2-3 to prepare too!
Is Frozen the Future?
Yes, yes, yes!!! Emphatically, yes, frozen is the future (in case you didn’t get it, the first time, LOL).
Because of the reduced shelf-life and increased prep time associated with fresh vegetables, frozen vegetables are the way of the future. Many fresh vegetables spoil before they even arrive at the store. They spend weeks in transit after being harvested too early and are not as fresh as you might think. Frozen vegetables, however, have a long shelf-life, sometimes more than a year, and are picked at peak ripeness. Many frozen vegetables are also pre-seasoned and prepared to cut down on prep time. You can learn more about why frozen rocks, here.
