Over the last year, the pandemic has altered consumer behaviours with the frozen food market seeing the highest rate of growth in 2020. The chilled food industry is also one of the fastest growing sectors which represents 10% of all UK retail foods by value. Both sectors are having a positive impact on reducing food waste, due to products lasting longer and giving consumers the option to preserve their products.
As a reflection of this growth, IFE is delighted to announce the return of the chilled and frozen section which will encompass all that is cheese, dairy, meat, poultry, and seafood. In 2019, over 230 chilled and frozen companies showcased their latest products to a range of international buyers and we’re excited for the return of the Chilled & Frozen section at IFE 2022.
