Frozen ready-to-eat (RTE) meals are naturally attractive to busy consumers, but even more so during a global crisis. Nutritious offerings with positioning such as vegetarian, protein-packed, low sodium or organic meet a variety of consumer desires. And advances in formulation and processing are allowing for flavorful, upscale creations that quickly become repeat purchases. Selecting the right ingredients in formats best suited for a specific application is key, and anything lending a health halo to the product will provide additional appeal.
