Real Food. Frozen.

Changing the Frozen Food Conversation: NFRA’s Year-Round PR Initiatives

As the frozen category is faced with many challenges in a changing food environment, we are taking to the next level to transform the frozen food conversation, change consumer perceptions and bring consumers back into the frozen food aisles.

Working yet again with leading food and nutrition PR agency, Edelman, we have expanded and enhanced our Frozen Food Consumer PR Campaign and taken frozen promotions to the next level.

Our messaging continues to focus on the real ingredients, culturally-inspired recipes, fresh flavors and innovations that make our category of foods unique. We’ve identified and are continuously mobilizing influential voices in the food world such as bloggers, dietitians and chefs to help tell our story and engaging consumers in new ways.
