Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Frozen Entree Market

Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the frozen entree market was mainly driven by the rising demand for healthy and nutritious frozen food. However, a severe disruption in the supply chain, including the distribution of food products, was witnessed after the onset of the pandemic. The disruption in the supply chain also created a significant shortage of raw materials, hampering the production activities of various frozen food manufacturers worldwide. The food service industry was adversely affected by the pandemic as governments of various countries mandated the food service operators to remain shut. However, this factor boosted the home consumption trend, propelling the demand for frozen prepared meals and entrees.

Due to work from home mandates, people started investing more time in home cooking.
