Sankalp Packaged Foods: The Global Trusted Frozen Food Brand

Akshara Bisht,DirectorAgainst the many myths claiming that frozen foods are bad for health, the British Frozen Food Federation says that freezing can actually help preserve levels of nutrients in the food. The nutritional value of frozen foods is higher than any other packaged foods. Hence, it is important that frozen food manufacturers adopt best practices for manufacturing and packaging the food to retain their nutritional value throughout the entire chain. "This means strict attention from manufacturing the food, filling & selling it, freezing & storing it, transporting it to the time the customer thaws it, cooks it and eats it," explains Akshara Bisht, Director, Sankalp Packaged Foods (SPF). A FSSAI, ISO 9001, ISO 22000, US FDA and SPICE Board Certified frozen food company, SPF is renowned for its wide range of high quality frozen Indian delicacies including North & South Indian, apart from Chinese and Italian recipes.
