Ethnic Flair with Frozen Foods
Are you in the mood for Mexican or Italian? Serving up a home-cooked meal with ethnic flavor in less than 30 minutes IS possible. Save time and reduce waste with frozen foods!

Numerous organizations, including the American Heart Association and American Cancer Society, recommend eating seafood twice a week. Frozen seafood products make that possible for everyone, year-round – not just during the fishing season or in areas local to fresh fishing. The flash-freezing process naturally locks in vitamins and minerals, with no impact to fat, protein or carbohydrates.
