What happens to raw meats after a year in the freezer?

If properly vacuum packed, nothing happens. It thaws fresh.

If air gets to the meat, it will get freezer burn.

Yup, it's all about the packaging. It will last a long time, if it is properly air tight. Last week I cooked a chicken that had been in the deep freezer for about 2.5 years. The packaging was still air tight and the chicken was fine. Made a few tasty suppers.

If the packaging isn't air tight, you will likely find that the meat is freezer burned and it has probably absorbed flavours and smells from the freezer. I find it tends to get a distinct "freezer smell".
