This characteristic is especially useful in South America, where transportation and distribution networks are not always perfect in some locations. Innovative freezing technologies, such as individual fast freezing (IQF), have enhanced the quality and flavour of frozen fruits and vegetables. The IQF technique separates each piece of product and freezes it separately, limiting the creation of huge ice crystals and retaining the texture and nutritional value. These technical improvements have aided the growth of the South American frozen fruit and vegetable sector.
