What key trends will shape the future of the frozen food industry?
We contributed to the British Frozen Food Federation’s Annual Report on what the UK’s 2050 net zero target means for this industry and the clear opportunity for frozen food companies to demonstrate leadership.
Plastic waste was high on the agenda in 2020 and, after the great steps this sector has taken to reduce plastic waste, we anticipate this interest to translate to food waste in 2021. The Frozen Food industry should be making the case for the benefits of frozen food to tackle the food waste problem. This industry is in a position to be the hero in the fight to create a more sustainable food supply chain and provide solutions to the issue of food waste.
In order to demonstrate leadership and create long-lasting change, the sector needs to pull together and make decarbonisation a priority. A switch to frozen is not enough to help the UK reach its 2050 net zero target. The industry will have to meet the demands of investors and customers in demonstrating a commitment to achieving net zero that goes beyond encouraging consumers to switch to frozen. This will include decarbonisation in it’s own operations and supply chains.
