2021 Year in Review Video

COVID illness and quarantines exacerbated labor shortages and supply chain disruptions throughout the food industry – in manufacturing, retail and foodservice. Despite the challenges, 2021 was another year of strong retail sales of frozen foods. Frozen foods continue to meet consumers needs for easy preparation, health, and variety. Looking ahead to 2022, AFFI expects continued strength in the frozen category and greater resiliency in the frozen food supply chain.
