Vietnam Frozen food market is expected to reach USD2291.28 million by 2026F, growing at a CAGR of 7.26% during the forecast period. Vietnam frozen food market is mainly driven by rising GDP, increasing per capita income, surge in sales through e-commerce, changing consumer perception, enhancement of food quality using irradiation, etc. Frozen food falls under the convenience food category, in which preparation time for the food is extremely short. Convenience is the major factor associated with ready-to-eat food products, bringing significant time savings for consumers. Frozen food meets specific requirements such as convenience, nutritional adequacy, shelf stability, and storage. Post the introduction of retorting technology, sales of frozen food products have spiked due to their superior packaging, taste and flavors. The food habits of people in Vietnam are continuously changing due to busy lifestyle, increasing population, increasing work hours and continuous emigration to urban areas for highly paid jobs.

The COVID-19 outbreak has introduced e-commerce to many Vietnamese consumers who were earlier not very much interested in online grocery shopping and e-payments. By shopping online, they experience the benefits of not going out and variety of places to choose from, among others. This has resulted in a surge in online demand for grocery products like frozen food, which are normally not key products for the e-commerce sector. For instance, the sales of online platform Shopee increased by 25% after the COVID-19 outbreak. The outbreak of pandemic led to the increased sales of frozen food via online channel.
