VEGETABLES properly prepared and stored vegetables can be frozen for up to 1 year with the exception of onions – 2 months, kumara – 3 months, and corn – 6 – 8 months.
MEAT fresh pieces of beef, lamb and venison can be frozen for 8 – 10 months, mince 3 – 6 months, sausages 1 -2 months.
CHICKEN whole, unstuffed up to 12 months, pieces 6 months

Tips for freezing: Only freeze foods you know will be eaten. Only freeze quantities that can be eaten within the recommended storage times. Always label what is in the pack and make sure you put a date on it. Freezing foods costs money so only freeze what you know will eat. If in doubt throw it out – its not worth the risk of food poisoning.
