Moreover, easy access of such products in brick and mortar stores across the country is expected to keep the momentum of the segment over the next few years.

Covid-19 Impacts:
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a major threat to Australia's frozen food market in addition to concerns about inflation and supply-chain disruptions. Due to imposed lockdown and social distancing norms, major product traces were at a halt as well as production of these products witnessed a decline. The labour force was also weak during the pandemic. However, frozen food sales surged during the COVID-19 lockdown period as consumers frequently turned to the freezer for a variety of meal occasions. Players in the space took advantage of new and innovative opportunities in functional ingredients, ready-to-eat meals, and color-preserving clean label agents. Meanwhile, sustainability in frozen foods was elevated through eco-centric packaging models. This change in consumer behaviour and preference regarding health benefits is projected to increase the sales of frozen food by 2027.
