The simple taco has been crowned king.
A consumer survey found tacos are now Australia’s favourite cook-at-home meal, overtaking spaghetti.
News.com.au reports: “Market data shows grocery sales of Mexican meal kits have grown by an average of 7 per cent per year over the past five years — more than triple the rate of the overall dry grocery category.”
While tacos are increasing in popularity, a 2016 study by Ipsos found meat and veg is still a consistent choice for Australian families.
“Dinner is still our main meal of the day and our dinner choices remain fairly consistent with staples such as meat and veg or salad, pasta, fish and veg or pizza as our top choices,” Ipsos strategy and research director Kathy Benson said.
“Despite our fascination with cooking pop-culture in recent times, half of us see cooking as a chore or only as a way of caring for others in everyday life. And although two out of every three of us prepare dinner from scratch to create a healthy meal, there are still many occasions where we are reliant on ready and packaged meals.”
