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, NFRA has expanded and enhanced the Frozen Food Consumer PR Campaign and taken frozen promotions to the next level.

NFRA's campaign messaging continues to focus on the real ingredients, culturally-inspired recipes, fresh flavors and innovations that make this category of foods unique. NFRA has identified and is continuously mobilizing influential voices in the food world such as bloggers, dietitians and chefs to help tell this story and engaging consumers in new ways.

Our Latest Media Partnership

We are partnering with Serious Eats, a 6-million member strong, online food destination that celebrates all forms of food - including news, trends, chefs and meal planning hacks. In January and February, our Cool Food Panelists Katie Workman and Billy Parisi will be creating and posting recipes to inspire the Serious Eats community and show how frozen foods maximize flavor, convenience and enjoyment, while minimizing waste, stress and time.
