Frozen food is a valued commodity in today’s times.

The increasing working population of women and the increasingly long working hours in the corporate sector are the major factors driving the global frozen food market. Freezing food reduces the chances of microbes invading it, since most pathogens can’t survive at sub-zero temperatures. As a result, frozen food can be stored for long periods and consumed at the convenience of the user upon short notice.

On the basis of product type, the global frozen food market is segmented into frozen ready meals, frozen fruits and vegetables, frozen potatoes, frozen soup, frozen meat, and frozen fish and other seafood. Of these product categories, the frozen ready meals segment took up the largest share in the global frozen food market in 2012. This category includes frozen pizza, frozen snacks, frozen entrees, etc.
