American Frozen Food Institute

How Fresh Stays Fresh.," nationally renowned health and nutrition expert Keri Glassman highlighted the many positive attributes of frozen foods and encouraged shoppers to take a fresh look at frozen.

The Washington Post
We've been writing for years about the waning brand that is the Republican Party. But while the party has its problems, its underlying philosophy — conservatism — has remained significantly more attractive to Americans than the underlying philosophy of Democrats — liberalism.
