You could wither have a separate PHP page for each SQL command and use that
in the links or, more likely, have just one page with a switch statement to
choose the SQL command, and pass the variable in through the query string.
Something like this:

// Assume the $action variable is being passed in the query string
// and do a switch to match up the SQL statement for the given value.
switch () {
  case "frozenfoods":
    // SQL commands for frozenfoods here.
    break;  case "freshfoods":
    // SQL commands for freshfoods here.
    break;  default:
    // Default stuff here
