Food Prices Are on the Rise
As our pockets very well know, inflation is causing food prices to rise at an astronomical rate. With grocery stores hiking prices, many consumers are searching for ways to stretch their budgets and make their dollars go further, all while demanding the same or better quality. That’s where Five Star Home Foods can help – let’s walk you through these five money savings benefits for you and your family.
5 Money Saving Benefits of Five Star Home Foods
- Frozen Foods Take the Lead as Affordable Alternative to Fresh Produce
- Frozen Foods are the Sustainable Choice
- The Convenient Solution For Busy Lives
- The Money-Saving Secret
- The Smart Choice for Sustainable and Cost-Effective Eating
One of the many advantages of filling your freezer with Five Star Home Foods menu items is that they are more affordable than fresh foods. We pass as much savings to our customers since we work directly with the farm – no middle people adding to the cost. Also, by purchasing in bulk you lock in your prices, regardless of inflation and rising food prices. There’s also the benefit of having seasonal foods available all year long. It’s easy to overspend on produce that’s out of season. Produce costs more when they aren’t in season because they have to be shipped from distant farms where growing conditions are more ideal. The cost to transport out-of-season produce is passed onto the consumer. With frozen foods, fresh is always in season and within your budget.
Frozen is Fresher for Longer
Another benefit of buying frozen foods during inflation is that they have a longer shelf life than fresh foods. Fresh foods, which are often shipped long distances while exposed to light and heat, sapping their nutritional power. Once they arrive at the store, they might score long stretches of shelf time until finally finding a home in your fridge. Because our foods are vacuum-sealed and flash frozen, you can store them in your freezer for an extended period of time without worrying about them spoiling. This can save you money in the long run because you can take advantage of bulk discounts and avoid having to throw away spoiled food.
In addition, frozen foods are often more convenient than fresh foods. They are easy to prepare, can be thawed and cooked quickly, which can save you time and energy. This is especially important during times of inflation, when you may have less disposable income and less time to spend on preparing meals.
Finally, buying frozen foods during inflation can also help you avoid impulse buying. When fresh foods are scarce or expensive, you may be tempted to buy whatever is available at the grocery store, even if it is not on your shopping list. With a freezer full of Five Star Foods, you will be able to plan ahead and meal prep easier, so not only can you avoid impulse buying and stick to your budget, but you will also be spending less time and money ordering takeout and fast food.
As you can see, enjoying the farm-to-freezer lifestyle with Five Star Home Foods during inflation can save you money in several ways. Our flash-frozen foods are often cheaper than fresh foods, have a longer shelf life, are more convenient to prepare, are often healthier, and can help you avoid impulse buying and wasting money ordering takeout. We hope you will give the farm-to-freezer lifestyle a try with Five Star Home Foods and watch your budget stretch further.
