Frozen meal meltdown

The category continues to dip as consumers seek better-tasting, less processed options.

Frozen meal manufacturers have plenty of work ahead. Often associated with high sodium content and lackluster flavor, sales for the category continued to slip last year down 8 percent to $8.1 billion according to Mintel. The market research firm anticipates continued decline through 2017 as more consumers increase restaurant spending or maintain established cooking regimens with higher-quality ingredients.
