Survey shows New Zealanders’ spending more on food

A survey by research group Kantar has shown New Zealanders are spending 35% more on food compared to last year, with 40% of households now spending more than $200 a week. Inflation-related price increases are also impacting on Australian food prices, contributing a cost-of-living pressures on households in both countries.

The New Zealand survey found people were buying less fruits and vegetables due to the cost, and less meat. Eating less meat is part of a broader trend toward plant-based diets, but the cost of meat is helping things along. The number of people identifying as vegan also increased from 2 to 5 percent. The use of home delivery services is also increasing.
