Refrigerated and Frozen Foods (RFF) is a niche publication for a fast-growing industry. Their website, RefrigeratedFrozenFood.com, needed to foster daily audience engagement and keep pace with the rapidly evolving nature of the content and resource needs of their readers. Not only did they commit to a total, visual redesign, they found ways to offer exclusive content, deeper resources and more advertising and lead generation opportunities. 

For over 20 years, Refrigerated & Frozen Foods has been the only publication dedicated to the value-added convenience chilled and frozen foods channel. Projected wholesale value of shipments for this market was over $280 billion in 2012. The publication focuses on all aspects of the chilled, refrigerated and frozen food segment, specifically business issues and challenges facing the temperature controlled food channel. 

More than 14,000 operation, engineering, production and logistics executives in the North American market rely on Refrigerated and Frozen Foods, not just for news and information, but also for helping to set the bar in an industry that requires attention to safety, efficiency and resourcefulness.  RefrigeratedFrozenFood.com delivers.
