The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) is transitioning the 2020 NFRA Convention to a virtual format October 19-21, 2020. An agenda featuring three full days of online customer business appointments will allow frozen and refrigerated food industry executives to discover new products, connect with business partners and grow their business.
