Frozen foods preserve it from the time it is prepared to the time it is eaten.  Frozen foods slow down decomposition by turning residual moisture into ice, inhibiting the growth of most bacterial species.

A deli is a market where you can buy prepared food or shop for staples including meat and cheese. You might have a favorite neighborhood deli where you go every morning for a bagel and coffee.

The word deli is a shortened form, or common nickname, of delicatessen, an American English version of the German delikatessen, the plural of delikatesse, “delicacy,” or “fine food.” Many delis specialize in the food of a certain region, country, or ethnicity — like a Jewish deli, a German deli, or a Greek deli. You can usually buy sandwiches, salads, drinks, and specialty foods at delis.
