Times change, people change, and businesses adapt and improve, as does (FFB). Today is 9/9/19 on the Gregorian calendar – a good day for the evolution of this website to come into full focus, starting with the clean, contemporary look of our logo redesign.

After serving for more than five years as a portal to access news and information of, about and for the dynamic global frozen food industry, the FFB team has geared up to launch this new and improved platform aimed at delivering enhanced utility to our growing readership around the world. We think you will appreciate the forward direction that has been taken.

Our advanced Model 2.0 will make it easier and quicker for you to maneuver to, from and between stories of interest. Categories featuring recent news and industry developments are prominently displayed on the home page. Just click and go with the flow into the commercial realms of Fish & Seafood, Vegetables & Fruits, Potatoes, Ready Meals, Poultry & Meat, Baked Goods & Desserts, Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt, Pizza, Ingredients, Foodservice, Retail, Private Label, Ingredients, Warehousing & Logistics, Equipment & Technology, Packaging, Trade Associations, Shows & Conferences. Featured Content, Reports, Events, Videos, a Company Directory and the FrozenFoodsBiz BUZZ blog from yours truly are also at your fingertips.

FFB is committed to better track the evolving world of frozen foods today and anticipate what lies ahead tomorrow. Our job as a trade information broker is expanding. It is no longer good enough to be merely a mirror of the times. We must also project and predict what the future will bring, and will increasingly endeavor to do so in the weeks, months and years that lie ahead.

It goes without saying that the service provided by would not be possible without advertising support from the community. Let me therefore say it loud and clear right here in unison with fellow FFB Director Malcolm Cameron: Thank You Dear Friends! We would like to express gratitude especially to the companies that are taking part in the 9/9/19 launch of FFB 2.0. They just happen to be among the best at what they do in today’s highly competitive international marketplace.

So here’s to the good folks at Ardo, Europe’s leading supplier of fresh-frozen vegetables, herbs and fruits to customers around the world;

Erlenbacher Backwaren, a subsidiary of Nestlé S.A. that specializes in making premium deep-frozen cakes, gateaux and desserts for out-of-home markets;


Anuga, the world’s foremost B2B food fair held in Cologne, Germany every two years, and will be celebrating its Centennial Anniversary this October;

The Kloosterboer Group, which ranks as the largest provider of temperature controlled logistics in Europe, and operates 16 branches and more than 4,700,000 cubic meters of refrigerated warehouse space and 700,000 tons of storage capacity spread across the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Germany, South Africa, Canada and the United States;

Buhler, the industrial camera technology pioneer and maker of optical sorters crucial in assuring food safety controls on the production lines in the frozen vegetable, fruit, potato, nut processing and other sectors;

and FAM, Europe’s leading supplier of industrial cutting machines for the food industry. For more than 60 years, the Belgian company’s equipment has been slicing, dicing and precisely cutting fruits, vegetables, french fries, fish, poultry, meat, nuts, cheese and other foodstuffs.


Hats off to one and all from a very appreciative FFB crew. We couldn’t do it without you!
