What is IQF?
Abbreviated from Individually Quick Frozen, IQF is a technique under which each individual piece of food is frozen separately.
Rather than freezing food pieces together and making a block of it, each food piece is chilled individually. This terrific technology makes IQF fruits and vegetables much easier to work with.
