ANALYSIS: “The consumer’s return to the office, school, and evening and weekend activities, brings back time pressure and a greater need for convenience,” said Joe Derochowski, home industry advisor at NPD Group. “Consumers often leverage the convenience of frozen foods and leftovers when time-crunched, which creates a greater need for freezer space.”
NPD Group tracked a giant sales surge for freezers in early 2022.
