Refrigerated & Frozen Foods turns 30 years old this year, and that means, yup, you guessed, a cause for celebration.

Turning 30 can sometimes create a feeling of panic and frustration. Maybe people don’t have their lives figured out. Maybe they’re in a crossroads of careers. Maybe they’re not where they envisioned they’d be.

Fortunately for all of our wonderful readers and advertisers, that’s not the case here.

That’s because Refrigerated & Frozen Foods has its path figured out, knows where it’s going and knows how to get there.

The future of Refrigerated & Frozen Foods is hot.

We continue to stay abreast of cutting-edge trends and technologies, cover hot topics impacting the cold chain and interview industry experts on changes in regulations, packaging, food safety and more.

Refrigerated & Frozen Foods kicks off the celebration with Good Foods, the recipient of our 2020 Refrigerated Foods Processor of the Year. Check out how Good Foods continues to make good foods better.

Throughout the year, we’ll be revisiting previously covered Processors of the Year, with this month’s issue talking to White Castle.

I don’t view our 30-year anniversary as just our brand’s celebration; it’s a celebration of the industry as a whole. It’s been a wild ride watching the cold chain industry progress over the years. Today, it’s all about e-commerce, blockchain, automation and fresh. It’s about traceability, cleanability and possibility. It’s about being all things to all people at all times.

And, we have zero plans of slowing down. We project to evolve side-by-side with the industry’s evolution, bringing readers the ultimate in trends, stats, studies, interviews and more, from agriculture to end user.

Happy Anniversary, Refrigerated & Frozen Foods. Time to celebrate.
