The financial crisis is changing the eating habits of everyday Australians, according to research conducted by Dangar Research Group which has shown that many are going “back to basics” and eating in.
Liz Dangar, founder of the Dangar Research Group said that Australians are pulling in during the crisis and becoming more budget conscious.
“In tough economic times, cost-conscious Australian families are looking for ‘in-tertainment’, choosing to stay in and cook at home rather than eat takeaway or go out to restaurants.”
Shopping habits have also changed according to Dangar, with budget conscious shoppers seeking out bargains.
“When it comes to the weekly grocery list, families are of shopping for on-special items and bargains. In the fruit shop, they are more aware of ‘tactical shopping’; buying seasonal fruit when it’s at its best price and taste.”
