"The cost of overlapping, redundant regulations significantly impact our bottom line."

National Frozen Foods Corp.
EAT YOUR VEGETABLES, AND CREATE JOBS
National Frozen Foods Corporation began as the National Fruit Canning Company in 1912, but quickly found its calling with frozen foods a few years later.
The company is responsible for some of the earliest frozen retail packaging, and by the 1930s it was selling frozen vegetables that were produced on one of the country’s first freezing tunnels.
More than a half century later, NFFC is entrenched in a sector that totaled about $56 billion in U.S. retail sales in 2010.
Through it all, National Frozen Foods has exemplified the spirit of a family-owned business. It’s a culture that gives employees’ responsibility and authority to make decisions, that provides workers with family-wage pay and good benefits, and supports the communities in which it operates.
Today, National Frozen Foods employs more than 500 full-time workers throughout Washington and Oregon, and as many as 1,400 during peak harvest season.
