Frozen Dinner Delivery
We were dismayed to learn of the passing of one of the food manufacturing pioneers Gerry Thomas. One of our unsung heroes recognized with inventing the packaging of s frozen dinner that accurately altered the way we eat our meals today. Forget that it was considered by nutritionists as a step the wrong direction, his innovation still made a major transformation in the food and thus began the food delivery services. In fact foodservice was in the formative years of product development when the frozen dinner was first introduced. The first meal offered was turkey with corn bread dressing and gravy, sweet potatoes and buttered peas – this meal sold for about $1.00 each and could be cooked in the oven in 25 minutes.
