Package Food Producers Can Still Satisfy Investors’ Hunger

Pasta, frozen meals and yogurt aren’t exactly exciting products. After all, they’re not as “sexy” as the latest cloud computing software or biotech drug. But when it comes to returns, ketchup was a big winner during the COVID-19 crisis.

And that made the producers of these items see massive revenue gains, big-time profits and rising share prices. Certainly not the norm for the traditional steady but sleepy sector.

The question now is whether or not the packaged food names can keep their growth in the post-pandemic world.
